Visit the former dwelling-house of one of the most important poets, Gerhart Hauptmann, which now houses an interesting museum. Let yourself be driven on the almost car-free paths of the only 19 km² small island to endless sandy beaches, steep cliffs, through clear forest and colorful heath. Let yourself be fascinated by the nature, wide salt meadows, moorish reed thicket, dikes, dunes, ponds and reet-covered villages. In the afternoon, the ferry will take you to Nordrügen, where you can take a short bike ride to Cape Arkona. Overnight stay in Trent, Bohlendorf, Wiek, Breege, Juliusruh or surroundings
Enjoy the beautiful cycling stage on the narrow, pine-lined piece of land between the Baltic Sea and the Bodden. Look forward to the national park "Königsstuhle", the famous chalk cliffs and cycle through the vast old beech forests that have been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2011. Visit the national park center with 2000 square meters of exhibition space and 28,000 square meters of outdoor space, certainly a very special experience.

Today you travel by train to Anklam at Peenehaff. Along the river Peene you cycle to the island of Usedom. Discover the quiet hinterland of the island, return to the Mellenthin water castle and taste the self-brewed beer before you reach the wonderful long white sand beaches of the imperial baths. Stroll comfortably over the promenade, let the wind blow on the long bridges around the nose and jump into the cool water.
The imperial baths, with their unique spa architecture, will be explored by you today. With its columns and towers, the magnificent villas look like from sugar-cake. The seaside resorts of Ahlbeck, Heringsdorf and Bansin proudly present their beauty, luxury and exclusivity. Like pearls of a chain, the extravagant summer domains of the Berlin High Society of the late 19th and early 20th century are the longest promenade in Europe. What a wonderful cycling day. Along the steep coast, always close to the sandy beaches, you cycle on a separate bike path in the easy up and down through the coastal forest to the north of the island. Overnight stay in Wolgast, Karlshagen, Zinnowitz or surroundings.
In the morning you leave Usedom and then cycle along small paths and quiet streets to the Hansestadt Greifswald, one of the most important cities along the European Route of Backsteingotics.
