Hamelin is well known to long-distance cyclists. And the Hotel Stadt Hameln, with its direct location on the Weser Cycle Path, is a well-known and popular meeting place, especially as a stop-over for long-distance cyclists.

Hameln is a starting point for long-distance cycling

However, more and more holidaymakers who enjoy cycling on holiday are discovering the advantages of spending their holidays in one place and taking wonderful day trips along well-maintained cycle paths. Hamelin is increasingly becoming the starting point for star rides, because not only the Weser Cycle Path, which is perfectly accompanied by the Weser Fleet, offers wonderful excursion possibilities for every taste. The advantage, of course, is that you don’t have to carry your luggage with you during the day and the hotel room is a cosy relaxation area without the constant checking in and out.
