From Hanseatic city to Hanseatic city

Three well-developed bike paths ensure that you will have a wonderful bike tour in northern Germany. Follow the North Sea Cycle Route from Hamburg along the Elbe to Brunsbüttel. Ship watching in Brunsbüttel, that should be on your program. The dream-ship season lasts from spring to autumn, as more than 100 luxury liners, sometimes several a day, pass through the Kiel Canal every year. Large ships, high as a multi-storey house glide past you majestically and you cycle on the canal cycle path with pleasure from the North Sea to Kiel on the Baltic Sea. And in between, you have to try the original Glückstädter Matjes. Look forward to the Baltic Sea and the well-signposted Baltic Sea Cycle Route, which takes you from one seaside resort to the next. White sandy beaches, colorful beach chairs, thatched cafés,seaside resorts, exclusive restaurants and impressive piers are waiting for your visit. The Hanseatic City of Lübeck is waiting for you to conclude your bike tour. Lübeck is unique and simply wonderful. The cityscape was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1987.

This trip is perfect for people who:

  • City enthusiasts: Explore the surrounding towns and cities on this tour!
  • Romantics: The small towns and villages along the cycle route invite you to daydream.
  • Hanseatic fanatics: This tour is perfect for anyone who has a particular soft spot for the Hanseatic League. Walk in the footsteps of Hanseatic history.


Hamburg, gateway to the world, the beautiful, the highlight of the north: The green city on the water is considered one of the most beautiful cities in Germany.

Arrive early, a worthwhile harbor cruise awaits you today. Experience the vibrant city of Hamburg, marvel at the largest model railway in the world in the Speicherstadt and smell exotic spices in the Spice Museum. How to get there: There are cheaper parking options in Lübeck (DB direct train 45 min.).

You cycle in a good mood through the Hamburg suburbs of Blankenese and Wedel. "Welcome to Hamburg, we look forward to welcoming you to the Port of Hamburg." This is how it echoes several times a day over the Elbe when a larger ship passes the Willkomm Höft, Wedel's most famous attraction. Here at the Schulauer Fährhaus all incoming and outgoing ships with a measurement of over 1000 Grosstons are greeted with their national anthem and in their national language. After an interesting break you cycle on the North Sea Coast Cycle Path through the Elbe marshland, which is protected by dykes, to Elmshorn.

On the way to your first destination in the North Sea, you will take a break in the picturesque town of Glückstadt - the king's dream on the Elbe. Stroll through the old town and try the original Glückstädter Matjes. Then you roll comfortably to Brunsbüttel, the city at the mouth of the Kiel Canal. Majestic, close enough to touch and yet unstoppable, the snow-white luxury yachts glide through the Brunsbüttel locks, where there are ideal vantage points as well as beautiful restaurants and cafés (accommodation in Brunsbüttel only cat. B).

Today you cycle along the Kiel Canal, the most used artificial waterway in the world. Via Hochdonn with its worth seeing double-railed railway bridge (a 2218 m long lattice construction) to the lovable town of Rendsburg, which is over 800 years old. Stroll through the historic old town, marvel at the railway bridge and take a seat on the promenade on Europe's longest bank (571.53 m), a box seat directly on the Kiel Canal.

Cycle one last time with the passing ships on the Kiel Canal-Radweg before you reach Kiel. Go on a discovery tour: modern architecture, centuries-old buildings, maritime museum, the old town of Kiel, the Holstenstraße with its shops, boutiques and general stores, the brewery, a boat trip on the Kiel Fjord, Kiel has so much to offer! After a rewarding break you cycle on the Baltic Coast Cycle Route to the Baltic Sea resort of Schöneberg with its beautiful white gently sloping sandy beach. Take a look at Omas Kaffeestuuv, a rustic, thatched-roof café directly behind the dike.

Look forward to an exciting bike route through the Hohwacht Bay, which offers miles of sandy beaches and a 20 meter high cliff. Discover grand estates in the hinterland and pretty seaside resorts. You cycle via Weißenhäuser Strand to Heiligenhafen with the old fishing port and the adventure pier.

Today you cycle to Lübeck Bay and past the Baltic seaside resorts of Dahme and Kellenhusen to Grömitz. Look forward to one of the oldest and largest baths at the Baltic Sea. Plan time for the 4 km long promenade in a class of its own, past the new Baltic Sea lounge, shops and restaurants, before cycling on to Neustadt, a small town in Holstein. Overnight in Neustadt / surroundings.

The best bathing opportunities, cafes, restaurants, boutiques and shops are now lined up in a colorful row. Mostly along white sandy beaches and tempting beach promenades you cycle via Haffkrug, Scharbeutz and Timmendorf to Travemünde. You can comfortably shorten the last leg to Lübeck with the S-Bahn before your eventful bike tour ends in Lübeck in the afternoon.
