The Baltic Sea Cycle Path in Schleswig-Holstein begins near Flensburg. Your cycle tour along the coast and further inland takes you from the Hanseatic city all the way to Lübeck. Unlike the eastern stretch of the Baltic Sea Cycle Path, the cycle path runs less straight on this section – just like the coast itself. You will cycle through a hilly landscape with lots of windmills, which is frequently interrupted by Fjords. Further inland, manor houses and farms characterise the scenery. Frequent breaks for swimming are obligatory, just like the delicious fish buns, which you can buy directly from the fishing boats.

The Baltic Sea Cycle Path in Schleswig-Holstein

Day 1: Individual arrival in Flensburg

Upon arriving in Flensburg, you should take an excursion to the harbour – the museum wharf and the beautiful old warehouses are a must-see. The German part of the Baltic Sea Cycle Route starts close to the city, as does your tour in Schleswig-Holstein.

Day 2: Flensburg – Kappeln, approx. 60 km + boat trip or approx. 75 km

You will not start today’s tour on your bike, but on water. A boat will take you along the Flensburg Fjord to Glücksburg. Visit the Renaissance castle, one of Schleswig-Holstein’s most beautiful moated castles, before cycling along the first few kilometres of the Baltic Coast Cycle Route.  Vivid yellow rapeseed fields accompany your route to Kappeln on the one side, and the deep blue of the Baltic Sea on the other.

Day 3: Kappeln – Eckernförde, approx. 45 km

Did you know that you can see one of the region’s largest collections of ship’s in a bottle in Kappeln? Before you start your second stage on the Baltic Sea Cycle Route, you should visit this collection of miniature ships. You will cycle further inland for some stretches of today’s tour past castles and manor houses until you reach Eckernförde.

Day 4: Eckernförde – Schönberg, approx. 50 / 55 km + ferry trip

The Baltic Coast Cycle Route will take you to the Kiel Fjord. Kiel, the state capital of Schleswig-Holstein is located at the end of the 16 kilometre long, narrow bay. You will cross the Fjord on a boat and cycle through the districts Kalifornien and Brasilien until you reach Schönberg. This idyllic small town is characterised by red brick houses with thatched roofs.

Day 5: Schönberg – Heiligenhafen, approx. 60 / 65 km

Today you will spend long stretches cycling along the coast. Don’t forget to pack your swimming gear, as a beautiful fine sandy beach awaits you in Hohwacht – ideal for a refreshing dip! Keep your eyes peeled, you might stumble across the lost hiding place of the famous pirate Klaus Störtebecker. You will then take a detour to Oldenburg, before following the Baltic Sea Cycle Route to Heiligenhafen.

Day 6: Heiligenhafen – Neustadt in Holstein, approx. 60 km

A 400 metre long pier awaits you in Grömitz. A break is definitely worthwhile here, as you will have an amazing view of the Lübecker Bay and its 8 kilometre long sandy beach. Back on your bike you will continue cycling along the Baltic Sea Cycle Path until you reach your destination Neustadt. In the picturesque historical town centre you can find a unique granary.

Day 7: Neustadt – Lübeck, approx. 45 km

You will cycle along the Baltic Sea Cycle Route along the Neustädter Bay and the Lübecker Bay. En route you will cycle across famous Baltic coast resorts, such as Timmendorfer Strand and Travemünde. In the Hanseatic city of Lübeck, you should go on a stroll through the historic town centre: The salt storehouse, the Holsten Gate and the Buddenbrook House are only some of countless sights.

Day 8: Individual departure or extension

Lübeck is located at the border to Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania. In the past week, you have cycled 350 kilometres on the Baltic Sea Cycle Path through Schleswig-Holstein! You can be proud of yourself and should treat yourself to a delicious fish bun or a piece of the famous marzipan. If you don’t want your holiday in Schleswig-Holstein to be over yet, we would be happy to extend your stay!
