Best areas in Europe for bicycling tour (not too hilly)

Jump to last reply

We've made many trips to many different countries in Europe so have pretty good general familiarity with Europe. We've also done self-guided cycling trips in the Loire Valley (more western part) and in Munsterland in Germany.

We'd like to do another trip soon, so I am soliciting opinions about places you'd recommend. We don't need or want major tourist destinations. We're looking for places that are interesting, on quiet roads, have many small towns or villages to stop in for snacks and rest stops, have at least a couple tourist places to visit for sight-seeing, and have some ambience. And, we prefer to not do a bunch of hill climbing, so flatter terrain is preferable. We are open to the country.

Years ago I got the suggestion for Munsterland (which we'd never even heard of) from this forum so thought I'd ask again for suggestions.

We are not the type of hardcore cyclists who bring our own bikes and carry everything. We're looking for locales that would have some tourist infrastructure for cycling tours with bike rentals and luggage transport from place to place whether that is through a local tourist office or small local company. If you can come up with suggestions for areas then I can start investigating whether or not there are any companies I could use for a self-guided tour.

Thanks for your ideas.
