Arrival in Hamburg
Individual arrival to Hamburg on your own until the late afternoon. Visit the metropolis of Hamburg. Explore the diversity this beautiful city has to offer.
Cycle along the Elbe River, through Blankensee, and to Wedel. Continue through marshland protected by dikes, through Uetersen, and to Elmshorn.
Cycle to the charming small town of Glückstadt and to Brunsbüttel. The Kiel Canal begins in Brunsbüttel. The lock is definitely worth seeing.
Once you have past the dikes, you will see the Wadden Sea. Cross the vast ‘Dithmarscher Land’ towards North Frisia. You’ll soon reach Büsum.
Cross the dam, Eidersperrwerk, onto the luscious green island. There is a watch tower near Katingsiel from which you can take in the beauty of surrounding nature. Visit the information centre in Katingsiel for more information about the national park near Wadden Sea. The red farm house called the “Haubarg” isn’t far from Husum and is worth a visit.
You can either cycle along the coast line or take the shorter route directly to Hamburger Hallig and over the dikes to Dagebüll. The ferry to Föhr/Amrum leaves from there. If you like, you can take the train to Niebüll. The fare is payable on-site. There, you can visit the museum of natural history.
