A little information on the Baltic Sea cycle path

There are almost 8,000 kilometres to be cycled from Denmark to Sweden along the beautiful Baltic Sea. At Eurobike, we concentrate on the German part of the famous cycle path along the Baltic Sea coast, which runs from Flensburg to Usedom on German soil – a route that is almost 1000km. Both the level of difficulty and the nature of the cycle path vary considerably. Some sections are very easy and suitable for families, others are more demanding cycle tours. The cycle path itself mostly runs on asphalt, but sometimes on gravel roads, unpaved paths or cobblestones could be found.

Impressions of the Baltic Sea cycle path

The most beautiful cities along the Balic Sea cycle path

Trave in Lübeck

Lübeck

The Hanseatic city of Lübeck is considered the mother of the Hanseatic League. The cityscape is characterised above all by the style of the famous Gothic brickwork and has an irresistible historical charm. The historic centre of Lübeck was declared a World Heritage Site in 1987. So you understand why we chose Lübeck as the starting point for some tours on the Baltic Sea Cycle Path. Additional nights here are certainly recommended!

Wismar

Even today, you can see that Wismar was once an important Hanseatic city. Due to the late Gothic influence of the architecture, the historical importance of the city and the convenient location, Wismar is one of the most popular tourist destinations on the Baltic Sea. After an extensive walk through the old town, you should definitely visit the three Gothic churches in the city, pay a visit to the town house and marvel at the royal court.

Stralsund

The Hanseatic city of Stralsund is also one of the absolute highlights on the Baltic Sea coast! And there is a lot to see here. The most popular sights include the German Maritime Museum, the Gorch Fock (a sailing school ship), the Stralsund Museum and the St. Marienkirche. And the fact that Stralsund is recognised as a state-approved resort only makes the city more attractive to us!

Flensburg

Flensburg

Everyone has heard of the famous spots in Flensburg. But there is so much more to discover here! You will get to know the most beautiful sights of the city on a walk along the Captain’s Trail. You should also pay a short visit to the Flensburg Brewery and try a good sip. We wish you a lot of fun!

Usedom

Usedom

The delightful island of Usedom, which belongs to Poland to a small extent, is one of the sunniest areas of the Baltic Sea and all of Germany. No wonder the island is also known as the island of the sun. Extend your cycle tour by a few days in Usedom, so that you can enjoy the mild climate, visit the most beautiful beaches in Germany and do something good for your soul! You will not regret it.

Useful information for your cycling holiday on the Baltic Sea cycle path

Cycle path

You can pedal almost 1000 kilometres along the German Baltic Sea coast. But the cycle path does not run continuously along the coast. Instead, you make detours inland, which is not less interesting due to the hilly landscape. Most of the cycle path on the Baltic Sea is asphalted, but you can always come across sections that run over gravel or unpaved ground.

 

Travel time

As already mentioned, the Baltic Sea coast is one of the sunniest areas in Germany. It is therefore not surprising that many tourists come here, especially in the summer months. The best time for cycling starts a little earlier – from April the temperatures are mild and inviting for a cycle tour. And if you want to avoid summer travel time, you still have enough time in autumn, since we offer our cycle tours on the Baltic Sea coast into October!

Climate

The German Baltic Sea coast can be classified in the humid-temperature climatic zone. This means you can count on mild summers and cool winters. The temperature differences between the two are not huge, which is why you can get on your bike in the spring months. In summer, rarely more than 20° can be expected because the steady wind keeps temperatures low. The climate on the Baltic Sea coast is said to be extremely healthy, since the salty air paired with the sun and wind has an extremely positive effect on the skin and respiratory tract.

Cuisine

In large parts of Germany the cuisine is meat-oriented. Of course, this is different on the Baltic Sea. Fish, fish, fish wherever you look. In addition to classics such as fish rolls and plaice fillet, there are also a lot of less well-known dishes that are worth a mention. For example, have you heard of Schnüsch? It is a stew, in which all garden vegetables are boiled in milk. Herring is often served with it. You should definitely try the cream herring Rügen style – a light herring salad with fresh jacket potatoes. Simply heavenly!
