Cycling routes in the Harz Mountains

An overview of the most beautiful routes and cycling tours in the Harz Mountains

Explore the Harz National Park on a bike tour and experience the beautiful nature of the Harz. Next to hiking, cycling and mountain biking is probably the most beautiful way to explore the region around the Brocken. Germany's highest low mountain range offers several thousand kilometres of trails and countless routes right through the legendary mountain world of the national park. Whether forest path, single trail, road or dirt track, the varied cycling tours in the Harz Mountains offer cycling fun for every level.

Of course, this does not only apply to sporty mountain bikers, there are also tours for occasional cyclists or families suitable for every age group. If you don't necessarily want to go all out on your bike tour, you will also find less strenuous bike tours in the Harz. The Harz fringe region, the Harz foreland and the valleys offer well-balanced routes along the beautiful landscape.

Most of the tours offer ample opportunity to discover the cultural sights along the way during a short break. Both hikers and cyclists can enjoy the mountain wilderness of the Harz in a considerate and harmonious coexistence. Therefore, always show consideration for hikers on your cycling tours through the Harz, give them priority and reduce your speed when passing, so that all guests of the national park can enjoy its nature equally.

To help you find the ideal cycling route in the Harz, we have put together an overview of the most beautiful cycling routes in the Harz. Our tour suggestions range from routes with challenging climbs to balanced paths that require far less physical fitness. Let's go! Get on your mountain bike or bicycle and explore the Harz on two wheels.
