Germany

One of the best ways to experience and understand a country is through its food. So what better way could there be to sum up the appeal of Germany for your cycling holiday than by comparing it with the defining Teutonic cuisine – die Wurst?

Picture the ubiquitous German sausage. They’re big, hearty in flavour and character, and have histories as long and complex as Germany’s. They also come with strong regional variations and deliver subtle notes beyond the big, Germanic initial impression. Enjoying your Regensburger Bratwurst, with a foaming stein of Spital Weizen, or just a sparkling mineral water, is a fantastic icebreaker with the locals…

So it is with your Oro Tours cycling holiday in Germany, as you explore this big, striking country with its towering alpine peaks and expansive forests. Then you are among rolling meadows, passing deep alpine lakes and following some of Europe’s most impressive rivers through their gorges. The weather is good too, which only serves to highlight the spectacular scenery, beautiful spa towns, beer-brewing monasteries and stunning alpine views. It’s all a bit like the way a dash of sweet Bavarian mustard brings out the best in traditional Weisswurst…

Yes! Cycling holidays in Germany really are the two-wheeled equivalent of a classic Bavarian sausage – and equally good from start to finish!
