Ride an e-bike in the Harz Mountains

Explore the Oberharz by e-bike!

This means you can reach the many sights and the Harz nature by bike during your holiday in the Harz Mountains without having to exert yourself too much. Experience a completely new cycling or mountain biking experience with an e-bike in the Harz Mountains. An e-bike is a bicycle with an additional or built-in electric motor.

The e-bike is therefore suitable for everyone and offers a great and varied alternative to a normal bicycle or mountain bike.

Riding an e-bike is good for your health

Riding an e-bike is very healthy, as you don't exert yourself too much and are therefore in the optimum heart rate range when riding. This activates your cardiovascular system while at the same time training your muscles and protecting your joints. The e-bike is therefore an efficient yet gentle training method. And the good thing is that it's also a great option for those who don't like sport and untrained cyclists.

Uphill, downhill with the e-bike

With the e-bike, you no longer have to worry about long distances or inclines. You decide how much you pedal yourself and how much assistance you want. And if you want to train really hard, you can switch off the motor completely. With the e-bike, you can also go on a bike tour through the Harz Mountains together as a couple or with several differently trained people, as no one is dependent on the others. Everyone simply sets the motor to their desired level and everyone can ride at the same speed and enjoy the bike tour through the Harz Mountains together.

These flexible options make the cycle tour through the Harz forests all the more fun. And if it does get too strenuous, there are also numerous places to stop for refreshments in the Upper Harz, benches to rest on or colourful flowering mountain meadows where you can have a picnic and recharge your batteries.
