Tour characteristic

Along the many lakes the route is naturally flat - but between the waters there are smaller and larger gradients to overcome: Less sporty cyclists will therefore prefer to use an electric bike, which is particularly suitable for this route. Sporty cyclists tackle the stages on touring bicycles and, if necessary, shorten them by using public transport.
