Day 1: Individual arrival in Lübeck

The old magnificent Hanseatic town was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987 and simply radiates charm. Most people associate Lübeck with the Holsten Gate, marzipan and Thomas Mann. But there is much more to see: the crooked brick houses, alleyways and courtyards, the town hall. And the fish rolls on the banks of the Trave at sunset taste particularly good.

Day 2: Lübeck – Wismar, approx. 80 km + ferry

Today’s route take you from Hanseatic city to Hanseatic city. Having left Lübeck’s gates behind you, you cycle along the Baltic Sea cycle path through the idyllic Brooker Wald conservation area until you reach the spa town of Boltenhagen. Alongside swashbuckling steep cliffs, you always have a great view of the whole bay. Once in Wismar, you’ve reached today’s final destination – a charming historic centre with several Gothic red brick houses awaits. We highly recommend a short trip to the adjacent island of Poel.

Day 3: Wismar – Rostock, approx. 90 km

From Wismar, you initially cycle on towards Kühlungsborn. Along the way you see both steep cliffs and perfect swimming beaches. In Bad Doberan you can take the resort train ‘Molli’ to the best sandy beach. The Hanseatic city of Rostock impresses with its well-preserved historic centre right on the Warnow.

Day 4: Rostock – Barth, approx. 90 km + ferry

Today’s route takes you along the Baltic Sea coast to the Fischland-Darß-Zingst peninsula. This 45 km peninsula offers – besides copious amounts of unspoiled nature and flat cycle paths – a dune range before Prerow, which, at 13 metres above sea level, offers unique views of the surrounding islands in clear weather. A bridge takes you back to the mainland, where you soon reach Barth.

Day 5: Barth – Stralsund, approx. 45 km

You cycle along the Baltic coast until you reach Stralsund. This region is visited by thousands of migratory birds, which take one last break here before embarking on the long journey to the South. Another highlight of your tour is the Hanseatic city Stralsund. The three towers welcome visitors from afar. Apart from the listed historic city centre you should definitely visit the museum of oceanography, fishery and aquariums.

Day 6: Stralsund – Ummanz – Breege / Glowe, approx. 100 / 115 km + ferry

You take the direct route from Stralsund to Rügen, before which you can make a stop on Ummanz Island. Germany’s second-largest Baltic Sea island also happens to be very flat – at only 3 metres above sea-level. Back on the neighbouring Rügen, you head for the coastal town of Breege. A divine place far away from all the hubbub – a great place for relaxing! Alternatively, you can also stay over in Glowe.

Day 7: Breege – Sellin / Göhren, approx. 65 – 80 km

Your athletic bike tour at the Baltic takes you to Sassnitz. It is a state-recognised health resort on the Jasmund peninsula and offers culture and history, as well as beautiful landscapes - Enough reason to take a lunch break here. Back on your bike, the Baltic coast resorts along your way take you back to the 19th century. Classicist architectural elements, delicate wood carvings and long piers are the characteristics of the Baltic coast architecture.

Day 8: Göhren – Stralsund, approx. 75 km

The last stage of your bike tour on the Baltic Sea takes you back to Stralsund, the gate to the island of Rügen. The route is well signposted and you will make good progress today, crossing the southern part of Rügen. Take a short break in Putbus – The castle gardens are particularly worth seeing. You should also get off your bike briefly in Altefähr, at the shore of the Strelasund lagoon: The view of Stralsund and the opposite shore is unique!
