From Heiligenhafen to Flensburg

Fishing villages and seaside resorts

Keeping close to the shore, the Baltic Sea Cycle Route passes along thickly-wooded steep banks, traditional fishing villages, glamorous seaside resorts, long-standing Hanseatic towns and old farmsteads. Cyclists will experience the great variety of cultural-historic sites along the Baltic Sea coast in Schleswig-Holstein and Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and their traditions – and of course the friendly people.

Suggested route for a one-day tour: 72 km from Travemünde to Poel 

Explore part of the fascinating Baltic Sea Cycle Route in just one day. Begin your trip in the seaside resort of Travemünde, where a detour to the four-masted bark 'Passat' is recommended. Cycling through the hilled landscape of the Klützer Winkel region, you will arrive in the Hanseatic Town of Wismar, which is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Situated just off Wismar, the island of Poel with its unique natural environments serves as a resting and breeding ground for thousands of water birds.
