Itinerary

Individual arrival to Stralsund. Embarkation starts at 4pm. Maybe you have time to stroll through the old city, which is located on a small island. The city has a great past so you will see remarkable places of interest.

Today's bike tour will take you through Stralsund over the Rügen Dam to Gustow where there is a well-known village church. You will then go past Poseritz, Groß Schoritz, the birthplace of Ernst Moritz Arndt and Garz to Putbus. Tip: Don’t miss the famous circus. Classical buildings line this circular “square” where all the streets converge. Then it’s off to Lauterbach located to the southeast of Rügen Island. You will board the boat here. Departure to Usedom is at 6.30pm.

Today you have plenty of time to explore Usedom Island. Tip: historical/technical museum in the former power plant or alternatively you choose the “beach-route” via Trassenheide and Zinnowitz. Afterwards you will cycle past Karlshagen Harbour and Zecherin to Wolgast, which is also known as the “Gateway to Usedom Island". The Medieval historic centre with its town hall and the Church of St. Petri are interesting sights and are worth a visit. 

Today you spend the whole day on board. You cross Stettiner Haff (Oderhaff) and reach Stettin, the green metropolis on the Oder estuary with one of the biggest harbours by the Baltic Sea. Worth-seeing is the reconstructed palace which is located in the old city. Tip: a guided city walk to discover Stettin (optional).

In the morning you cruise from Stettin to Mescherin. Via Gartz you cycle to the unique border-area “International park Lower Oder Valley”, which you will cross before you reach Schwedt, today’s destination. Tip: A guided city walk through Schwedt (optional).

In the morning you will move on by boat from Schwedt to Hohensaaten. You then cycle towards Niederfinow (ship lift – a tour is always possible) through the splendid landscape, passing by small hills, clearings and forests. The last section will be on the Treidel bike route along the Finow Canal to Eberswalde. In the heart of the city, in the Finow Canal, is the oldest working lock in Germany, which has been a technical monument since 1978.

In the morning you enjoy a boat ride to Oranienburg. Sightseeing tip: the Baroque castle with its park, museum and orangery. You then cycle along the well-signposted bike route, which will take you southwards through the Ruppin sea area to Berlin.

Disembark after breakfast and then travel home as arranged by you. 

Tour character

You mainly cycle along traffic-free paths, country roads and tarmac bike paths as well as sandy fields and forest tracks. There will be shorter sections along main roads.
