This is a very good guide to one of the major cycle routes through Europe. It is currently only available in German, but the detailed and up-to-date maps of the cycle route (including tricky navigational bits in cities) make it a useful guide for non-German speakers too.

Good points:
- clear and up-to-date mapping
- kilometre distances at regular intervals
- written directions (in German) at key points
- interesting information about towns and cities
- information on guest houses, hotels and bike shops
- robust and pretty weatherproof

Problems:
- only the Rhine route itself is mapped. If you go off the route for more than a few kilometres, you'll have cycled off the map. I advise taking a reasonably detailed road map and a compass with you in addition to this guide.
- IMPORTANT FOR CAMPERS - the map does not distinguish between 'Festcampingplatz' and normal campsites. The former are static caravan sites where you cannot pitch a tent. Arriving at a campsite in the evening after a 120km ride and discovering you can't actually camp there is not much fun, and cycling on in the dark to find another campsite (generally they're not well signposted) is even less fun. This happened to us a couple of times. It is worth planning your route in advance and making sure that you will be able to camp at the sites marked on the map.

Otherwise, well worth it.

It is what it is a map and guide of the cycle Rhine route. Would have been brilliant if was also in English but good otherwise. Yes we used this and the 1st and 3rd volumnes when we cycled from Andermatt to Hoek Van Holland in June/July 2010.
