Apple Maps Now Offers Cycling Directions in Germany

Apple Maps now offers cycling navigation in Germany, allowing users across the country to receive turn-by-turn directions while riding a bike.

Apple Maps Cycling Germany
Apple Maps offers cycling directions along bike lanes, bike paths, and bike-friendly roads as much as possible, complete with details like elevation, how busy a street is, and whether there are stairs along a route. On the Apple Watch, voice guidance and haptic feedback make it easier for users to stay focused on the path ahead.

As noted by German blog Macerkopf, Apple Maps has also rolled out its "Detailed City Experience" to Berlin, Hamburg, and Munich. The revamped experience offers more detailed road markings, additional custom-designed 3D models of landmarks, and more.

Apple Maps cycling directions are also available across the United States, China, and Japan, as well as in select major cities around the world, such as London, Barcelona, and Toronto. Apple continues to play catch up with Google Maps, which began rolling out cycling directions in 2010 and now offers the feature in over 30 countries.

(Thanks, Daniel Marcinkowski and Mert Bulan!)

And again, The Netherlands doesn't seem to exist according to Apple. While Google does seem to know us, as it launched here first in 2010....

Endlich holalaaa ? . This is the only thing I’ve been waiting for to make the final and complete jump from Google Maps.

I like that it gives options as well.

Apple has been slow and pretty poor rolling this out across the world. It’s not as if they don’t have the financial resources to accelerate the roll out. I have to use a 3rd Party App in the Uk, that allows me to select the type of bike I have and changes the route accordingly ( road bike v Mountain Bike). It’s kinda laughable that they roll it out in the US first as the difference in the % of Americans that cycle to work compared to many European countries is huge.

This while support for the country with the most bike paths/lanes in the world is sadly absent.
Probably the reason why! Too much work

Getting closer to NL. Super important because biking is the main mode of travel here, but for some reason Apple seems to give priority to countries with less bike usage.

I’m happy for our neighbors though!
