    Recommended European tour?

    Friends -
    I live now in southern Germany, Bavaria, and a friend will be joining for a summer tour in 2008. We will be well eqipped, me with a Cannondale T-2000, he with an REI Novarra Rondonee. We do not anticipate going to Italy or Spain, but can accomodate other countries. He is a Polish-American and will probably want to see the land of his great-grandparents. I would prefer a jaunt through Belgium and the Netherlands, possibly even Denmark.

    What routes can you recommend? What sights are a "must see"?

    Here are a couple of recent threads that had info about Germany and Denmark. Also, browse the Touring pages -- seems like everyone is heading to Europe for the summer.

    Central Europe: Going to Europe. I have some general questions

    Denmark: Denmark

    Have fun!

    Raleigh Aspen touring/off-road hybrid, and a Bob Yak trailer. Yak very useful for us car-free types that like to buy lots of beer.

    Do both. How about the Europa Radweg R1, from Netherlands to Poland.

    I've just finished my North Sea Route of Netherlands and Belgium and enjoyed it a lot. My journals have a lot more detail. I know nothing about Poland other than the agricultural workers in Netherlands and Belgium seem to come from there.

    I biked thru Poland 5 years ago - I would definately recommend it. A lot to see and not a bad country to bike tour. But then again neither is most of Europe!
