Happy children dig in the fine sand, while their relaxed parents let the view wander over the Baltic Sea. Our family bike tour on the Baltic Sea guarantees carefree vacation days for young and old. The daily cycling stages are not too long, the sandy beaches are child-friendly, the steam train Molli draws attention to itself from afar with a loud hiss and with two boat trips the adventure on the water is not neglected. The cities of Lübeck, Wismar and Rostock provide variety. And who can claim after the vacations to have cycled through a real ghost forest?

Family bike tour on the Baltic Sea

Day 1: Individual arrival to Lübeck

The old, magnificent Hanseatic city was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987 and is bursting with charm at every turn. Most people associate Lübeck with the Holsten Gate, marzipan and Thomas Mann. But there is so much more to see: The warped brick houses, corridors and courtyards, the town hall. And fish sandwiches on the Trave at sunset taste especially good.

2nd day: Lübeck - Groß Schwansee / Boltenhagen, approx. 20 / 30 km + boat trips (category A), Lübeck - Hohen Schönberg, approx. 20 km + boat trips (category B)

Your day begins with a 1.5-hour cruise on the Trave River, which takes you from Lübeck to Travemünde. Here the proud four-masted barque Passat lies at anchor. Afterwards, a ferry will take you to Priwall (not included). On the Baltic Coast Cycle Path you cycle through the Brooker Forest and along the steep coast to Hohen Schönberg or Boltenhagen. In the Baltic resort Boltenhagen there is a lot to do for children: Ship in a bottle museum, climbing park and of course the magnificent beach.

Day 3: Bathing day in Boltenhagen

What would the Baltic Sea be without a jump into the water? The Baltic resort of Boltenhagen, which is only about 10 kilometers away from Hohen Schönberg, is not known for its beach for nothing. Almost 5 km of sandy beach and a 290 m long pier are waiting to be discovered by you. If mere relaxation is not enough for you, we recommend a visit to Bothmer Castle in Klütz. The baroque castle with its Feston avenue offers a fantastic photo motif.

Day 4: Boltenhagen - Wismar, approx. 45 / 30 km

A jewel among all the villages you will cycle through today is the former fishing village of Hoben, which is completely listed. Thatched hall houses duck between the Baltic Sea and rapeseed fields. You will cycle along the Wismar Bay and through a small coastal forest until you reach the historic center of Wismar after a short time. The visit to the Old Port is particularly exciting for children.

Day 5: Excursion to the island of Poel, up to approx. 25 km + boat trips

A ship will take you directly from Wismar to the island of Poel. There you follow the circular route once around the whole island. From Kirchdorf you explore the island and visit the lighthouse at Timmendorf Strand. At the black bush a memorial reminds of the sinking of the Cap Arcona. Back you can go by boat again or leave the island of Poel at Fährdorf over the dam by bike and cycle about 10 km back to Wismar.

Day 6: Wismar - Kühlungsborn / Bad Doberan, approx. 45 km

Only a few kilometers behind Wismar lies the Holländermühle near Stove. In addition to a small museum, a magnificent view of the Salzhaff awaits you there. Shortly before Kühlungsborn, you can marvel at one of the smallest but highest lighthouses at Bastorf - and of course have a wide view of the Baltic Sea. If your hotel is in Bad Doberan, the historic narrow-gauge Molli train will take you via Heiligendamm to the town with its famous minster.

Day 7: Kühlungsborn / Bad Doberan - Warnemünde / Rostock, approx. 20 / 40 km + train ride

Having spent the night in Kühlungsborn, today's schedule includes a ride on the Molli to Heiligendamm. From there you cycle to Warnemünde or Rostock. On your way is the ghostly forest near Nienhagen. Ghostly because the trees have been bizarrely deformed by the constant Baltic Sea wind. That is why the trees also bear the nickname Windflüchter.

Day 8: Stay in Rostock / Warnemünde

A day on the wide, white sandy beach pleasing? Or would you rather experience seals up close at the Hohe Düne Research Center? Visit the Rostock Zoo? Watch the huge cruise ships enter the Rostock harbor? Stroll around the beautiful old town of the Hanseatic city and eat an ice cream? There's plenty to do on your bike-free day!
