You cycle on very good bicycle paths through idyllic greens of the Havel in the country of Brandenburg, cross the beautiful lakeland area of Mecklenburg and enjoy a 2 hours cruise on the Baltic Sea.
The countryside of Denmark is rich in contrast. Cliffy coasts change into white sandy beaches. Picturesque fishing villages take turns with majestic palaces and gorgeous manor-houses in the inland. The bicycle paths lead you along the coast on mostly quiet side roads and unhitched well drivable bicycle paths.
Tour profile:The landscape is moslty flat, only few parts are slightly hilly.
