The counterpart to the North Sea cycle path stretches more than 430 kilometres from Kupfermühle near Flensburg to Lübeck-Travemünde. The long-distance cycle path is rightfully among the most popular cycle routes in Germany: sometimes it follows the beach, sometimes steep forested banks, then back through the green countryside or small harbour towns. Over eleven stages, for which you can download GPS data, you can discover the history, culture and landscape of the Schleswig-Holstein Baltic coast. For instance, in Flensburg, where the every day life of a modern border town is coupled with a Danish history and lively harbour atmosphere. Or in Eckernförde, where the white beaches and a quaint old town offer that pure holiday vibe.
Cruise ships, sailors and surfers define the maritime image of the Bay of Kiel, where you will find the DanCenter houses of Wendtorf Marina, one of the largest sport boat harbours in Schleswig-Holstein. The section of the long-distance cycle path through the Probstei on the east bank of the firth offers highlights on solid land: idyllic countryside with stately homes and farms, beach life and museum boats, and the Bottsand nature reserve all offer great ways to pass the time. From the Probstei, the path veers towards the sunny island of Fehmarn. You can take a spin around it on the Baltic coast cycle path – or take a detour inland to discover the island's history.
Finally, at Lubeck Bay, you will encounter the string of holiday resorts and their long beaches: Großenbrode, Dahme, Grömitz, Scharbeutz and Timmendorf to name just a few. Long piers project into the Baltic Sea and promenades invite you to take a stroll. On the steep bank of Brodten, cyclists are rewarded with a fantastic view over Lubeck Bay and the Bay of Mecklenburg. Then as if all by itself, your bike will lead you to the fish sandwiches and casino of lively Travemünde.
