Baltic Sea Cycle Route – From Lübeck to Stralsund
8 days / 7 nights
This Baltic Sea tour is one of our personal favourites. Explore the coast all the way from Lübeck to Stralsund and stay in comfortable hotels. Or, one could say, "from Marzipan to Bismarck Herring." Enjoy the Hanseatic architecture, lively sea side resorts, beaches, and the Baltic Sea breezes.
Day 1: Arrival in Lübeck
Stroll through the Old Town. Lübeck is a jewel of a city with a beautiful waterfront, ponds, numerous shops and quaint locales. Spend the night for example in Radisson Blu hotel.
Day 2: Lübeck – Wismar (Cycling 57–77 km / 37–49 miles)
Cycle to Travemünde, where the Baltic Sea cycling trails begin. Take the ferry to Priwall and on through Klützer Winkel and Boltenhagen. Continue along Wismar Bay to Wismar. Wismar is one of the most beautiful Hanseatic cities in Mecklenburg-Pomerania. The magnificent architecture mirrors the strength of the once mighty Hanseatic League.
Day 3: Wismar – Kühlungsborn (Cycling 31–46 km / 19–28 miles)
Wismar's Old Town suffered minor damage during WWII. A stroll through town would be worth your while. Cycle through the landscape called 'die Kühlung', formed in the last glacial period, then on to Kühlungsborn. Spend the night there maybe in Travel Charme hotel.
Day 4: Kühlungsborn – Warnemünde / Rostock (Cycling 27–40 km / 16–24 miles)
Your destination today is Warnemünde, a resort town near Rostock. Cycle along the coast. If you like, you can take the train called "Molli" to Bad Doberan, through backcountry and cycle on from there to Warnemünde/Rostock.
Day 5: Warnemünde / Rostock – Fischland / Darß (Cycling 40–52 km / 24–32 miles)
Warnemünde is where the Warnow flows into the Baltic. Enjoy a stroll along the river where fishing boats and sailing yachts dock. Continue on the trail to Wustrow and the artist colony of Ahrenshoop. Spend the night on the Fischland Peninsula.
Day 6: Darsß - Zingst - Barth (Cycling 30–42 km / 19–26 miles)
Cycle through the forest on Darss to Prerow. Plan some time for an excursion to the beach. It's quite romantic! After your break, continue on to the Vorpommersche Boddenlandschaft National Park - migration grounds for common cranes and grey geese.
Day 7: Barth – Stralsund (Cycling 45–57 km / 28–35 miles)
Today you will head towards Stralsund along the Barth Bay. Still a good distance away from the city, you will be able to see its three famous towers. Your tour ends in Stralsund. Bevor you overnight in the hotel Scheelehof, you must visit the sights of the town.
Day 8: Departure from Stralsund
Return your bicycles after breakfast. Travellers are responsible for their own transportation home. You may reserve our transfer shuttle back to Lübeck at the time of booking.
