Please check my proposed route!

I plan to cycle from Zeebrugge (Belgium) to Prague (Czech Republic) over 8 days via Germany. My proposed route is below. If anyone's done any of those routes, could you advise me about what it's like? I'm particularly looking for details of the surface (ie, tarmac/asphalt/gravel) and hillclimbs. The hillclimbs are a big one for me, because I need to know which days I'll not cover as many miles as I would on flats (Google maps is bad for understating hills!).


Day 1: Zeebrugge - Sluis - Vlissingen - Roosendaal - Breda (103 miles/166km)

Day 2: Breda - Eindhoven - Venlo (79 miles/127km)

Day 3: Dusseldorf - Cologne - Bonn - Andernach - Koblenz (91 miles/146km) via Rhine cycle route

Day 4: Koblenz - Bingen - Mainz - Frankfurt (86 miles/138km) via Rhine cycle route

Day 5: Frankfurt - Wurzburg (71 miles/114km) via River Main cycle route

Day 6: Wurzburg - Munchberg (104 miles/167km) via River Main cycle route

Day 7: Munchberg - Hohenberg an der Eger - Karlovy Vary - Rakovnik (114 miles/183km)

Day 8: Rakovnik - Beroun - Prague (45 miles/72km)

try plotting your route on

It will give you an distance vs altitude graph
