Mecklenburg Lakes

In the land of thousand lakes

8 Days / 7 Nights
Waren on the Müritz

The unspoiled beauty of the Mecklenburg Lake District is especially captivating on a cycling tour through its enchanting water landscapes. Enjoy the crystal-clear lakes, expansive fields, dense forests, and charming villages along the way. Pedal along rivers like the Müritz and be mesmerized by the diverse nature and peaceful atmosphere. This region provides perfect conditions for cyclists eager to immerse themselves in the idyllic scenery, breathe deeply and simply enjoy.

Two accommodations, daily loop tours – our lake district tour is based in Waren and Neustrelitz. Your first excursion takes you along the western shore of the Müritz, giving you plenty of time to enjoy the picturesque lake. On this day, you'll return to Waren by boat. Around the Fleesensee, you'll be enchanted by the island town of Malchow and the "Damerower Werder" reserve, where you can marvel at a herd of bison in the wild.

You can also enjoy the region's flora and fauna on your way to the picturesque town of Neustrelitz, where you can take in a stunning panoramic view from the viewing tower on Käflingsberg. The beech forests south of Neustrelitz are a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and your visit to Serrahn can include stops for swimming and relaxation. The Kleinseen area is perfect for exploration by both bike and canoe. On the final stretch back to Waren, you'll pass through the charming village of Ankershagen and once again relish the beautiful landscape.

  • Relax and unwind by the glistening water: The Müritz is the largest lake entirely within German borders and a popular vacation destination in the Mecklenburg Lake District. Enjoy a variety of leisure activities such as boat rides or stand-up paddling, or simply explore the picturesque landscape.
  • Fascinating animals in the Damerower Werder: Located on a small peninsula in Lake Kölpin, a herd of bison has lived here since 1976. These animals, along with other species, roam freely in the wild. Visitors can enjoy show enclosures and public feeding sessions.
  • Baroque flair in Neustrelitz: Amidst all this natural beauty, the lively atmosphere of a city can be refreshing. Relax in the charming cafés and bars, and make sure to visit Neustrelitz. Discover its impressive castle with baroque charm, stroll through the idyllic castle garden, and explore the historic old town with its notable buildings.

One thing you must not forget on this vacation: your swimwear! The Müritz is perfect for all kinds of watersports and, of course, for relaxing. Just enjoy yourself – the cycling routes are easy to handle and mostly flat.

Whether it's the North Sea, the Baltic Sea, the capital, or the Lake District - you can experience all this and much more on one of our cycling tours in Northern Germany. So, hop on the saddle and let's go!
