General Maps and Books

  • Basic GPS; used on phones, tablets and GPS units all over the place, useful when things go wrong.   Take care when buying that you understand the total cost of the SD-maps you may need, that you have the right sort of chargers and that you can use them easily on the ride.
  • Tablet PC maps; with added GPS, now getting very attractive.  
  • Google Maps ; 2D mapping, plus terrain, plus pictures, plus plus.
  • Google Earth ; 3D version of Google maps, very good if you want to understand the terrain.

Germany Basics

We are great believers in the Rough Guide range.  At the moment for Germany you can get the Germany Guide and Berlin which is a bit limited.   The Michelin range is pretty good but tends to be in French or German.  This book covers the whole country and is in English. 


Mosel Valley

Cycline's Bikeline range is pretty comprehensive and does enhance any bike trip






Elbe Valley






Lake Constance

Again Cycline's Bikeline is pretty good but if you want just a map then Freytag-Berndt's maps are good






German Wine

The Gault Millau, considered by many to be the best guide available.  In English.
