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 digital maps you'll need, that you have the right sort of charger with you (GPS is power-hungry) and that you can use the GPS-enabled device 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 also one for Berlin which is a bit limited. The Michelin range is pretty good but tends to be in French or German. This book (the Michelin Green Guide) 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 is considered by many to be the best guide available. In English.
