TYPICAL neanderland

Cycle relaxed and enjoy

What would a bike tour be without a well-deserved break? A real voyage of discovery simply includes the culinary delights, of which neanderland has quite a few to offer. Stop off at one of the many idyllically located inns and cafés. Enjoy the typical hearty dishes of the region between Bergisch, Rhine and Ruhr in a rustic or stylish ambience. For example the famous Bergische Kaffeetafel or the Rheinische Sauerbraten. And for dessert fresh waffles or homemade cakes. Cozy beer gardens invite you to enjoy local beer specialties from our own brewery and other refreshments. Are you more in the mood for a picnic in the great outdoors? Then you will find everything your heart desires in the farm shops in the region: from crusty bread to local juices. Well strengthened and rested, you can continue until the next break.

For these special quality products and providers, simply look out for the “TYPICAL neanderland” seal.
