Itinerary

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”.

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. Continue on the bicycle trail on the North Sea Coast to Husum.

Depart after breakfast. For the departure you are also responsible on your own.

Landschaftlich schöne und abwechslungsreiche Tour.
Unterkünfte gut ausgewählt - meist zentrale Lage und gute Verpflegung. Kartenmaterial gut geeignet, um alternative Strecken zu fahren, wenn z.B. Streckenbeschilderung nicht ausreichend vorhanden war.

Tolle Radtour!
Das Hotel Am Schlosspark in Husum hat uns am besten gefallen. Das Frühstücksbuffet war sehr reichhaltig und das Zimmer sehr gemütlich.

Wetterbedingt eine sehr schöne Tour
Die kleinen Städte sind für Radreisen ideal, da man sie nach der Ankunft noch gut kennen lernen kann. Husum und Kappeln sind besonders lohnend. Reizvoll an dieser Tour ist auch, dass man von einem Meer zum anderen fährt und die Unterschiede von Marsch und Geest unmittelbar "erfährt". Froh waren wir, dass wir nicht testen mussten, wie diese Tour bei dem hier leider häufig anzutreffenden starken (Gegen-)Wind und Regen ausfällt. An der Schlei ist es bei gutem Wetter regelrecht romantisch. Die Hotels waren alle in Ordnung, das Hotel am Schlosspark in Husum ein wirkliches Highlight. Besonders lobenswert ist der Einsatz des betreuenden Mitarbeiters der Mecklenburger Radtour vor Ort, der sich auch sofort um Hilfe bei einer neuen, unangenehmen Brückensperrung über die Eider bei Rendsburg gekümmert hat, die wir noch - sozusagen als Testfahrer - mit einem Umweg von 15 km bezahlen mussten.
