Individual arrival to Husum on your own until the late afternoon. The late poet, Theodor Storm, wrote a beautiful poem of Husum calling it “the gray city”. You can visit the Theodor Storm House or the maritime museum with a stroll through the city.

Cycle the Eider-Treene-Sorge Trail to Hollingstedt. Northern Europe’s largest archeological monument called the ‘Dannewerk’ is located there. Continue on to the museum called ‘Danewirkegarden’ near Dannewerk and to Schleswig.

Today’s leg of the tour takes you through the old town, the historic fishing village of Holm, and along the Schleishore. Cycle through the rolling hills of Angelns, Borderby, Lindaunis, and Arnis (Germany’s smallest city), to Kappeln.

Cycle south of the Schlei to Kopperby, Sieseby, and Missunde, following the route once used by Vikings. Continue to Eckernförde.

Today’s leg of the tour takes you through the Hüttener Berge Nature Park, to Rendsburg. The highest elevation near Rendsburg is called the ‘Scheelsberg’ and reaches 106 m / 348 ft.

The Vikings used to move their ships on oxcart to Hollingstedt, sail down the Eider, and into the North Sea. Cycle part of the same oxcart route and continue to Friedrichsstadt.

Cycle along the Eider, through marsh land, and across dikes to Tönnig. You can find out all you want to know about the Wadden Sea at the Mulitmar Wattforum Information Centre in Tönnig. Numerous bird species are found in and near the salt meadows. The ‘Haubargs’ (typical farm houses) dot the landscape on Peninsula Eiderstedt.
