Day 1: Individual arrival in Berlin

Individual arrival in Berlin, city of fashion and design, politics, media and science. Thanks to its cultural diversity, the city is more popular than ever before with travellers from all over the world. In the late afternoon you will take part in the information meeting and the bike handover. If you are visiting Berlin for the first time, make sure not to miss highlights, such as the Brandenburg gate.

Day 2: Berlin – Joachimsthal, approx. 30 km + train trip or approx. 75 km

You leave Berlin behind you and cycle through Barnimer Land, characterized by its gentle hills and numerous lakes. This section takes you through the expansive woodland area of Schorfheide. A pretty trail takes you between Webellinsee lake and Grimnitzsee lake. The historic city centre features the Schinkelkirche Church, Joachimsplatz and the Kurfürsten Fountain.

Day 3: Joachimsthal – Prenzlau, approx. 65 km

The lake route will take you through Parlow to Gambeck, past Lake Wolletz and Peetzig, through small villages to Warnitz. Go for a dip in Lake Oberucker, before mastering the slightly hilly route to Lake Potzlow. Cycle along Lake Unterucker to reach Prenzlau, which is located in picturesque surroundings. The main town of the historic Uckermark landscape was the location of important monasteries in the past.

Day 4: Prenzlau – Ueckermünde, approx. 40 km + train trip or approx. 70 km

If you wish, you can shorten this stage by taking the train to Pasewalk (not included). Cross the picturesque Uckermark to reach Torgelow, where the open-air museum Ukranenland evokes the region’s Slavic settlement. You will cycle further through the Ueckermünder Heath in the direction of the Szczecin Lagoon. Ueckermünde with its beautiful sandy beach is located at the Uecker estuary.

Day 5: Ueckermünde – Anklam, approx. 40 km

First you will cycle along the coast of the Szczecin Lagoon, past the nature reserve Anklamer Stadtbruch, towards the 700-year old hanseatic town Anklam. There is a museum in honour of German aviation pioneer Otto Lilienthal, which explores his life and work. Other sights in the town located on the river Peene are the churches St. Mary’s and St. Nikolai’s.

Day 6: Anklam – Heringsdorf region, approx. 60 km

Cross the Peenestrom strait and cycle along the southern coast to the city of Usedom, which gives the island its name. The seaside resorts Heringsdorf, Bansin and Ahlbeck, are well known and were popular with the aristocracy, as well as the ordinary people during the Hohenzollern Monarchy. A 12-kilometre long beach promenade connects the three resorts with the Polish beach town Swinemünde.

Day 7: Stay on the Isle of Usedom

Today is all about bathing fun at fine sandy beaches, strolling along the elegant former imperial baths or exploring the idyllic harbours and the countless lakes. A visit to the Polish Swinemünde is worthwhile, or why not visit the Phänomenta in Peenemünde?

Day 8: Individual departure or extension of stay

After breakfast your bike tour from Berlin to the Baltic Sea ends. If you wish, we can extend your stay on the green island Usedom.
