Wrapping up our first evening in Wesel, in the Nordrhein area of Germany. The hotel here is in the list of ‘Bett und Bike’ hotels, it seems they have these all over Germany and even Europe! Never heard of it before, but really practical if you’re planning to travel by bike or – as in our case – bring your bikes for the long weekend. The hotel rents out bikes, but also provides a secure storage area and basic services, I’m assuming it concerns minor mechanical repairs or fixing holes in tires.
We’re right on the bank of the Rhein river and obviously not the only ones to plan exploring the area on two wheels. Unfortunately it’s looking like it will rain often the next couple of days, but we are not deterred and have planned to take the bike tomorrow to ride to Xanten and then Saturday for an entire day out. Friday is reserved for a shopping trip to Düsseldorf. No pictures yet..
