The Baltic Sea cycle path is over 1000 km (600 miles) long and perfect for those that want to add a sporting element to their cycling holiday. Averaging about 70 - 80 km (43  -50 miles) per day on your bike tour from Flensburg to Usedom, you’ll be cycling through the hilly Holstein Switzerland region and past Lubeck bay. Alongside the Fischland-Darß-Zingst peninsula, which runs parallel to the mainland, you’ll cycle onwards to Germany’s largest island. Despite its many steep cliffs, you’ll frequently find opportunities to enjoy the salty sea breeze at one of the several beaches. The perfect ending for your cycling tour is the brilliant sunny island of Usedom, where you’ll be able to proudly look back on your challenging bike holiday.

Day 1: Individual arrival in Flensburg

Most of the German rum imports are processed in Flensburg, however the town is better known for the company headquarters of a well-known mail-order business for adults and the register of traffic offenders. A visit to the harbour with its beautiful warehouses and the Museum Shipyard is an absolute must. The northern starting point of the Baltic Sea Cycle Route is located close to the town. If you have booked rental bikes they will be handed over here.

Day 2: Flensburg – Kappeln, approx. 75 km

To begin with you will cycle along the Flensburg Fjord until you reach one of Germany´s most beautiful moated castles – the Renaissance castle in Glücksburg. From here you will cycle through the tranquil Angeln, the countryside between Flensburg and Schlei. A detour to the nature reserve Geltinger Birk, a coastal landscape with salt-flats, reed-marshes and sand dunes, is worthwhile.

Day 3: Kappeln – Kiel, approx. 90 km

Today’s destination is Schleswig-Holstein’s state capital. On your way there, you’ll cycle through the Schwansen region, featuring soft hills and steep cliffs. Further along the coast, past sand dunes, you will cycle through predominantly hilly terrain until you reach Kiel’s more urban topography. The city’s characteristic horseshoe grid around the Kieler Förde, while the Kieler Hörn offers great views of the town and the impressive sailing boats.

Day 4: Kiel – Eutin, approx. 90 km + boat trip

Today, you’re leaving the state capital behind you, continuing along the Baltic Sea coast cycle path. You will cross the Fjord on a boat and reach Laboe, a pretty small coastal town with a great beach. The scenically impressive region around the Sehlendorf Lake offers unique views of the Baltic Sea. From now on, you’ll be moving away from the coast toward the hinterlands, until you reach today’s final destination of Eutin.

Day 5: Eutin – Neustadt – Lübeck, approx. 70 km

At the end of this stage, you’ll reach the Hanseatic city of Lübeck. Apart from a picturesque historic centre, you should also take note of its culinary treats. Lübeck Marzipan is world-renowned, and the local Plettenpudding is well worth trying out. Via a brief detour to Neustadt, you’ll continue along the coast until you finally reach Lübeck.

Day 6: Lübeck – Wismar, approx. 80 km + ferry

Today’s route will take you from Hanseatic city to Hanseatic city. Having left Lübeck’s gates behind you, you’ll 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’ll 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 7: Wismar – Rostock, approx. 90 km

From Wismar, you’ll initially cycle on towards Kühlungsborn. Along the way you will 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 8: Rostock – Barth, approx. 90 km + ferry

Today’s route will take 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 will take you back to the mainland, where you will soon reach Barth.

Day 9: Barth – Stralsund, approx. 45 km

You will 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 10: Stralsund – Ummanz – Breege, approx. 100 km

You will 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’ll head for the coastal town of Vaschvitz. A divine place far away from all the hubbub – a great place for relaxing! From here it is only a few kilometers to Breege.

Day 11: Breege – Kap Arkona – Sassnitz, approx. 80 km + ferry

Today you’ll cycle from the northerly peninsula Wittow to Rügen’s most northerly point, Cape Arkona. Steep cliffs of up to 43 metres imposingly come out of the sea and are a popular destination. On Rügen, you’ll ride to Sassnitz. This state-certified resort town on Jasmund peninsula offers a lot in terms of landscape, culture and history. You shouldn’t miss the famous cretaceous coastline to the north of the city.

Day 12: Sassnitz – Göhren / Sellin, approx. 30 / 40 km

The Baltic seaside resorts along your route today will take you back to the 19th century. Classicistic elements, delicate woodcarvings and long piers are characteristic for the Baltic Sea townscapes. When you have left the day’s ascent behind you, we recommend you take a break in Sellin, where you can stroll out across the sea on the 394 metre long pier.

Day 13: Göhren – Greifswald, approx. 75 km + ferry

Rügen bids you goodbye with a real highlight: You will first cycle along the first part of the German Avenue Road until you reach Glewitz. The bright green cycle path is certainly memorable! In Glewitz you board the ferry (not included), which will take you back to the main land in only a few minutes. From Reinberg you will cycle along the Baltic Sea Cycle Path to Greifswald.

Day 14: Greifswald – Heringsdorf / Bansin, approx. 90 km

Today, you’ll be cycling along the Baltic Sea coast cycle path to Wolgast, the gate to Usedom. You’ll come by magnificent lakes, moorlands and meadow landscapes, getting particularly close to the beauty of the Baltic Sea landscape. Over the Peene Bridge, you’ll reach the sun island of Usedom. From Zinnowitz beach resort, you’ll cycle along the woody coastline. There are several great swimming spots on sandy beaches along the way. Your final destinations are the splendid imperial sea resorts.

Day 15: Individual departure or extended stay

After almost 1000 km along the Baltic Sea coast cycle path your bike tour from Flensburg to Usedom concludes. We’re happy to extend your stay in Heringsdorf / Bansin.
