Cultural tour through the Baltic States
The Eleven-Day Cycling Holiday in the Baltic Sea offered by Rückenwind Reisen is a cultural – round trip by bike and bus through all three Baltic countries. The cycling tour takes you not only to the capitals of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. Perhaps some will visit regions and cities where their family comes from? And perhaps he will meet people there who become friends, who will share with him one or another experience that underpins the new friendship between East and West? Klaipeda on the Baltic Sea, for example, is one of the destinations of the cycling trip in the Baltic. Memel used to be called Klaipeda in Memelland; Many half-timbered houses are still in the city, which has the most important seaport in the country. Klaipeda will also travel with Rückenwind during your cycling holiday be the starting point for a short boat tour to the Curonian Spit. Huge sand dunes characterize this peninsula, which is now a national park of Lithuania. On the Spit you will cycle to Nida and spend the night there. Nida is a seaside resort and former artists' colony. Lovis Corinth and Max Pechstein were here for a while. Nida is surrounded by forests, dunes and heathlands, which may have served as a backdrop for some of the painters.
Cycling holidays in the Baltic
Culture and nature are in harmony in the Baltic region; Not only in Vilnius, Riga and Tallinn await visitors on their cycling holidays treasures that were once hidden by iron curtains. But now the curtain is up. The Baltic region awaits you: you and your bike with many new discoveries.
Cycling holidays in Poland – from Krytyn to Wolfsschanze
Krytyn is the starting point for this cycling holiday in Poland and offers the opportunity for a beautiful boat trip on the Krytyna. From here, your holiday will take you by bike to the Puszcza Piska jungle and after another night in Krytyn to Mragowo, the former Sensburg, which is located amidst the beautiful lakes and forests of the Mragowskiesee Plat. But Masuria is not just nature – experience in a beautiful region: Again and again magnificent buildings were placed in the pristine countryside, especially the Holy Linden. The name St. Linden stands for a Jesuit monastery, which is considered to be the most beautiful baroque building in Poland. Worth seeing is the magnificent basilica, also worth seeing the famous organ of the monastery from the year 1721.
It was written by Jussua Mosengels. Masuren presents itself quite differently during your cycling holiday in Poland when you visit Wolfsschanze. Here, in the former Führer’s headquarters, the darkest part of German history is suddenly at hand. But the dark times are over and hopefully will never return.
Cycling from Warsaw to Gdansk
The first highlight at the start of your cycling tour through Poland is Warsaw with its beautiful Old Town and cultural diversity. Afterwards, you will cycle leisurely through the enchanting landscapes of Masuria, passing the Mikolaiki water sports centre between Lake Mikolajskiesee and Lake Talty. Excursion boats sail the lakes around the city, sailing ships dance on the water. The city itself has a large marina, restaurants and cafés nearby invite you to linger. It is beautiful in Mikolaiki – you will see for yourself. The old Hanse metropolis of Gdansk is at the end of the tour on your bike path through Poland: another highlight at the end of the tour.
Prag, Moldau, Elbe und Böhmens Weine
Prag ist voller Geschichte und voller Kultur und mit Sicherheit würdiger Start oder aber würdiges Ziel von Radreisen durch den Osten Europas. Die Stadt Kafkas. Die Stadt der weltberühmten Sehenswürdigkeiten wie des Hradschins mit dem Königsschloss oder der Karlsbrücke ist bis heute eine Stadt der Kultur mit weltweit gutem Ruf. Auf vielen Bühnen in Prag wird Theater gespielt, die Philharmonie gilt als eine der besten Europas, diverse Clubs bieten Raum für Jazzkonzerte. Aber Tschechien ist nicht nur einen Urlaub wert, weil Prag einen Urlaub wert ist. Rückenwind Reisen bietet beispielsweise achttägige Touren von Prag nach Dresden an: sowohl als geführte Touren als auch als Radreisen, bei denen individuell gefahren wird.
Gepäcktransport ist bei beiden Varianten inklusive. Bei diesem Radurlaub ist Start wie Ziel der Reise ein Kultur – Erlebnis von europäischem Rang. Dresden steht Prag in nichts nach und präsentiert mit Sehenswürdigkeiten wie der Semperoper sowie der Frauenkirche und dem Zwinger ähnlich berühmte Bauwerke wie die Hauptstadt Tschechiens. Verbunden werden beide Städte durch Moldau und Elbe und so geben die Flüsse die Richtung vor, die man bei diesem Radurlaub einschlägt.
Cycling tours through the Czech Republic – back in Germany
Approaching the Czech side of the German border, you drive through the Elbsandsteingebirge, which on the German side is also called Saxon Switzerland. Nature as a master builder here demonstrates its tendency towards bizarre figures, which it formed from the stone of the rocks. As if escaped from a strange dream, the rock formations look partly, dreamlike at the same time. Bad Schandau, like the fortress Königsstein, is located in Saxon Switzerland; both of you will also get to know during this cycling holiday. Then. . . you reach Dresden and the end of this journey is as beautiful as the beginning and as all the days between start and finish.
