And biking in this country is just a pure joy. The distances at the lake and in the Rhine Valley are pleasantly even and lead through landscapes which one could never explore in the same way by car: directly along the lakeshore and the Rhine dam, through the Rhine delta nature preserve area, the natural marshlands of the Rhine Valley. Those looking for a greater challenge can simply bike up one of the mountains.
