The Baltic Cycle Path 2013
Level paths, long hours of sunshine, heavenly beaches, beautiful countryside and excellent food make the Baltic a very popular area for cyclists. Unique countryside to be experienced on the islands, proud old Hanseatic towns along the coast and the infinite vastness of the lagoon area are what makes the Baltic cycle path so special.
In addition to lively, cultural towns such as Flensburg and Lübeck, the Baltic also has miles of sandy beaches to offer. Some of them are well developed while others are beautifully isolated. It's your choice. The well known holiday islands of Rügen and Usedom are not only on lists of holiday destinations for many people in Germany but used to be favourite destinations of emperors and royalty throughout Europe.
For people who love pure nature, the Pomeranian Baltic coast is perfect. There is a whole host of nature reserves here. Heading east of the wonderful town of Gdansk, you will eventually pass through former West Prussia and Ermland to approach Masuria, a destination that is particularly popular among lovers of nature, water and bicycles.
Our Baltic neighbours, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, not only have wonderful beaches for cyclists to discover but also the impressive Hanseatic towns of Tallin, Riga and Memel.
Denmark is particularly friendly to cyclists - with its level ground and wonderful beaches. Bornholm is definitely worth visiting. And is rightly known as the Sunny Island on the Baltic.
