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.

Guest Feedback

The Schlei-Baltic Sea-Region as a perfect cycling destination

We are passionate cyclers and never thought of these hilly routs up in the north of Germany. It really was a big surprise. Our children love horses and are looking forward to every Schlei vacation for easter- or summer holidays.
