Come soon to Berlin, the city is worth it. Maybe you have time for a stroll over Kurfürstendamm, through Nicolai quarter at Spree Island or through Brandenburger Tor. Berlin offers many possibilities. Boarding from 4 pm at Berlin Tegel.
The bike path leads towards North to Oranienburg. Well-worth seeing is the baroque palace with park, the museum and the Orangery. You go on board again. Cruise to Eberswalde. In the heart of the city, in Finow canal, one of the oldest lock of the Elbe is located. It is a technical memorial since 1978.
Today you cycle on the towpath along the Finow Canal and through the almost deserted Mönchsheide to the boat lift Niederfinow to Hohensaaten. The oldest working ship lift in Germany from 1934 proudly bears the title "Historic Landmark of Civil Engineering Germany" and is even Europe's largest ship lift. In Hohensaaten you go on board and cruise comfortably on the Oder to Schwedt. If you want, you can of course also cycle the route from Hohensaaten to Schwedt (about 32 km).

Afterwards cruise to Stettin, the green big town at Oder estuary. There is one of the biggest harbors at Baltic Sea. Well-worth seeing is the reconstructed palace which is located in the old city.
Today you spend the whole day aboard. You pass through the protected landscape area Szczecin Haff / Oder Lagoon at a slow speed. Discover fine sandy beaches with small bays, typical Vorpommersche fishing villages and thatched houses. Look forward to Wolgast, the gateway to the island of Usedom. The city is known for its preserved historic center with many monuments, the city harbor and the Peene shipyard. Stroll through the renovated medieval city center, visit the St. Peter's Church from whose tower you can enjoy a fantastic view and marvel at the historic town hall in the brick building.
Today you cycle via Zecherin and Karlshagen-Hafen to Peenemünde (Tip: historic technical museum). In Peenemünde you go on board again. At 6 pm cruise to Lauterbach which is in the southeast of island Rügen.
A beautiful cycling day awaits you. Guests can visit the town of Putbus, which is only 2 km away, and has a classicist urban ensemble that is a listed building. Today's bike tour takes you via Putbus, Garz, Groß Schoritz, birthplace of Ernst Moritz Arndt, Poseritz and Gustow with its well-known village church and over the Rügendamm to Stralsund, where you meet your ship again. Marvel at this brick embossed historic Hanseatic city, which has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2002. Let yourself be inspired by the unique ensemble from Alten Markt, Nikolaikirche and the imposing Stralsund Town Hall.
Today your eventful bike and boat trip ends after breakfast until 09:00 am with the disembarkation.
Timetable and program changes are basically reserved. If e.g. If a route cannot be traveled due to low or high tide or bad weather, the skipper reserves the right to change the route for your safety (this is not a free reason for cancellation). Since your ship usually calls for the next port on the same day, your time frame for your own activities and sightseeing is limited. With some bridges the headroom is so low that the sun deck is locked for your safety.
