Itinerary

You start the tour in the magnificent old Hanseatic city of Lubeck which was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987.

First through the spa town of Travemunde and then along the Baltic Sea coast. Cycling through the Brooker Wald nature reserve to Boltenhagen. From the cliffs you have a great view over the entire bay.

Mostly following the banks you cycle to the Hanseatic city of Wismar. Poel island with its long sandy beaches and the historic city walls dating back to the Thirty Years’ War is worth a visit. .

On your way to Kuhlungsborn you will see cliff lines as well as wonderful beaches. Stroll through the English park Kamp in Bad Doberan or board the train „Molli“ that takes you to the beach.

In Warnemunde you should sit at the widest sandy beach of the Baltic Sea coast. Wustrow is located on a peninsula called „Fischland-Dars“ which used to be the border between Mecklenburg and Pomerania.

Explore the „Darser Urwald“ (Darss Jungle) and the wild romantic „Weststrand“ (west beach), one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Via Zingst you get back to the mainland to the former Swedish town of Barth.

From far away you’ll see the three towers of the Hanseatic city of Stralsund. Its former importance as a trading city can still be seen in the old town, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
