Guides

guide imageThe main guides to this section of the North Sea Route are the Bikeline Guides.

Number 2 - Germany: Ems to Hamburg.

Number 3 - Germany: Hamburg to Sylt.

The guides include 1:75,000 maps of the route (including variants), route descriptions, tips and details of accommodation. As far as I am aware 'Number 2' & 'Number 3' are only available in German, but the maps are very good and easy to follow, more details can be found on the publishers website.
