Survey on the frequency of bicycle usage in Germany 2015-2018 In 2018, 9.3 percent of the German population hopped on a bike daily, while 18.2 percent did so several days a week. Cycling is both a popular way to commute as well as a recreational activity.
Wheels in motion

Cycling is an increasingly familiar fixture of urban life. One of the things to look out for when walking around German cities are marked bike and pedestrian paths. Cycling is especially common in student areas and towns. Germany has many regions offering scenic routes for bike travel, among them Bavaria and Munsterland, as well as long-distance tours. There is still work to be done in the area of sustainable public transport, of which bikes are a considerable part, if Germany wants to place higher in world rankings.

Cycle of life

Europe’s cities look back on a long cycling history. It’s not uncommon to see a bike lending station in urban areas. Visitors and the local population alike are encouraged to use bikes not just for recreational reasons, but also for environmental ones – it remains one of the cleanest and cheapest ways to get around, plus cycling is another way to preserve Europe’s many old streets and quarters. In 2019, Utrecht in the Netherlands was rated the most bicycle-friendly city in the world, followed by Münster in Germany, with Bremen closing the list.
