By Bike across the European Union

Two enthusiastic cyclists, five months, 11,000 kilometres: Paul Baumgärtner und Noah Kramer are experiencing the European Union in the most literal sense of the word.

The preparations are completed, the tour can begin. On 11th March, Paul and Noah made their way by car to Portugal, where their ambitious journey is to begin. It will be the last time for the next five months or so that these two young men will be travelling by motorised transport. They want to visit all the EU countries, except Malta and Cyprus, by bike. 26 countries and 11,000 kilometres lie ahead of these two high-school graduates.

„With our cycle tour through the states of the European Union, we  will pass through the borders of many countries and so highlight the sheer variety of the EU. At the same time, travelling by bike will promote the protection of the environment.“ The money, which Paul and Noah will be raising in their campaign, will go to benefit EuroNatur. „In EuroNatur we have found a serious charity organisation which we would like to support. That EuroNatur also crosses borders is an idea which we wholeheartedly stand for.“

In the coming spring and summer, we will be reporting on Paul and  Noah’s trip on our social media sites. Further information on these two, as well as up to date travel impressions, can be found on their website (German).
