You shall cycle through pretty North German towns where you will find friendly people and excellent cooking, which all contribute to the success of your holiday. This is a wonderful cycle tour in Germany with beautiful scenic views.
You will find the terrain sometimes flat, sometimes slightly hilly, mostly on quiet country roads, cycle paths, field and forest trails, occasionally on sandy tracks, paved paths and on cobbles. The route is not always along the coast but takes frequent swings into the varied countryside further inland.
