The Baltic Sea and all its facets
Your personal East Side Story on the coastal cycle path at the Baltic Sea
Wind in your hair, salt on your skin and a truly maritime atmosphere – that's what you can expect from this 1,000 kilometre long cycle path along the Baltic Sea, starting high up in the north in Flensburg leading to Lübeck in the southwest on a long-distance cycle track through Schleswig-Holstein.
A section of this track leads you directly to the Schlei region, passing the Geltinger Bucht and the port of Kappeln before you reach Schwansen peninsula on a coastal path.
