Itinerary

The old magnificent Hanseatic town was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987 and simply radiates charm. Most people associate Lübeck with the Holsten Gate, marzipan and Thomas Mann. But there is much more to see: the crooked brick houses, alleyways and courtyards, the town hall. And the fish rolls on the banks of the Trave at sunset taste particularly good.

Todays stage on the Baltic Sea Cycle Route offers splendid views of Lübeck and Neustädter bay. You not only pass the seaside resorts of Timmendorfer Strand and Scharbeutz but can also visit Germany’s oldest lighthouse in Travemünde. The small harbour town of Holstein, where you stay the night, has ‒ in addition to its fjord-like harbour and pagoda granary ‒ a pretty historic quarter.

Today you cycle along Lübeck Bay to the coastal resort of Grömitz with its 400 m long pier. From here you get a wonderful view of the sandy beach which stretches some 8 km. Passing Grossenbrode, the spring board to the island of Fehmarn, you carry on to today’s destination Heiligenhafen. The pretty old town and the remarkable salt storage are worth a walk.

The first town on the Baltic Sea Cycle Route today is Oldenburg with Germany’s oldest guild. Stately homes and Knicks ‒ Schleswig-Holstein’s traditionally grown hedges ‒ line your path. You soon arrive in Brazil and California. No, that’s not a mistake! Two sections of the beach have these names in Schönberg, todays destination. Pedal through unspoiled countryside and former salt meadows, cycling 3 km inland.

Today you first set off to Laboe, the town of swans. From there you take the ferry over the Kiel Firth, into which the North-Sea-Baltic-Sea canal flows, to Friedrichsort. Alternatively, you can stay on the boat and continue to Kiel and visit Schleswig-Holstein’s capital city. Then, the Baltic Sea Cycle Route takes you along the firth through Schwedeneck passing meadows and woods to Eckenförde.

Leave this Baltic coast resort and pedal north via the semi-peninsula Schwansen to Kappeln. You cycle through cosy little villages and the coastal resort of Damp, past prehistoric and Stone Age grave sites. In Kappeln, the town on the river Schlei, there is no danger of getting bored exploring this town. It’s where you'll find the biggest Dutch windmill of the area; visit the fish weir and museum harbour, too!

Today's route takes you through the attractive countryside of Angeln, between the Schlei and Flensburg. Finally you cycle along the Flensburg Firth to one of Germany’s most beautiful water castles ‒ the renaissance castle in Glücksburg. After a visit, cross the firth by boat. After almost an hour you will land in Flensburg ‒ the most northern German city along the Baltic Sea Cycle Route.

Please note: The ferry do not cruise in April, Mai and September on monday as well as October you have to cycle the whole stage, approx. 75 km.

Your cycle tour along the Baltic Sea Cycle Route from Lübeck to Flensburg ends after breakfast. If you wish we can extend your stay.

Der Gegenwind fährt immer mit
Es war eine ganz tolle Tour. Zum Glück war auch das Wetter auf unserer Seite. Allerdings hat man fast die ganze Zeit Gegenwind. Vielleicht sollte man die Fahrt von Flensburg nach Lübeck machen. Der Gepäckservice hat super geklappt. Es war immer schon in der Unterkunft, wenn wir ankamen. Schade ist, dass das Hotel Eichenhain in Neustadt-Pelzerhaken verkauft wurde und zum Jahresende schliessen soll. War eine tolle Unterkunft. Für uns als Flachländer war allerdings leicht hügelig zum Teil leicht untertrieben. Wir würden die Tour auf jeden Fall noch einmal in umgekehrter Richtung machen. Die Planung fürs nächste Jahr läuft bereits.

Wunderschöne Reise entlang der Ostsee
Wunderschöne Radelstrecke entlang der Ostseeküste, gut ausgeschilderte Radwege, vorbei an tollen Stränden, Wassertemperatur 20 °C, interessante Orte und Städte unterwegs erkundet. Unterbringung in Hotels nähe Stadtzentrum, Sonnenschein an fast allen Tage (1 x hat es geregnet). Fährfahrten waren sehr interessant, da der Kapitän vieles erklärte und man so einen Einblick in die Vegetation, in die Arbeitswelt und in das Drumrum bekam. Die Reise ist sehr empfehlenswert. Kurzer Hinweis meinerseits: An der Ostseeküste ist es nicht flach, wie ein Brett, es ist eine sehr hügelige Landschaft. Ca. 90 % der Radler da oben, fahren E-bike.

Landschaft pur, aber nichts für Anfänger
Die Reiseunterlagen haben uns sehr gut gefallen, die Reise war perfekt organisiert und wir waren gut untergebracht. Da die Ausschilderung des Ostsseeradwegs zum Teil lückenhaft ist, ist die Mitanahme eines Navigationsgeräts unbedingt zu empfehlen. Für Flachländer mit Rädern ohne Motorunterstützung ist die Strecke durchaus anspruchsvoll. Teilweise führt der Weg über Stock und Stein (ausgefahrene Feldwege, schmale Pfade auf den Deichen). Ach ja - und Gegenwind gibt es fast immer. Fazit: Man sollte sich nicht untrainiert auf den Weg machen. Aber alle Anstrengungen sind der Mühe wert, denn der Ostsseeradweg macht seinem Namen alle Ehre und bietet schönste Landschaften und sehenswerte Städte.
