This tour is just the thing for lake addicts, because behind almost every bend it splashes and glitters. Germany's largest inland lake - the Müritz - forms the centre of the tour. The Müritz National Park and the Mecklenburgische Kleinseenplatte are located on the eastern shore of the lake. The tour reaches its climax on the island of Usedom, Germany's sunniest region.

Author’s recommendation

Great eye-catchers: At the Herzogpalast in Ludwiglust and at the Stargarder Tor in Neubrandenburg, you can hardly get enough.

Turn-by-turn directions

The Mecklenburg-Vorpommern cycle path and the Griesen area pass before Dömitz on the Elbe meadows. This landscape is characterised by picturesque paddocks and fields. Even magnificent castles can be admired here, like the baroque castle of Ludwigslust. In Neustadt-Glewe, a medieval fortress can be explored. The small town is the gateway to Lewitz, Germany's largest continuous meadow landscape and at the same time a European bird sanctuary. Numerous canals, fishponds and especially the river Elde are suitable for swimming and paddling.

In the town Röbel, cyclists reach the Müritz. The picturesque town of Waren (Müritz) is also not far away, with its lively harbour forming a charming contrast to the quiet Müritz National Park. Here the silence only breaks through the rustling of the leaves. At the tower Käflingsbergturm, it is worthwhile to get off the saddle. At a height of 55 metres, you have a fantastic view of the national park.

A real paradise for leisure captains and paddlers is the lock village Mirow. The 3-Königinnen-Palais on the castle island should be visited during a rest. Between the Müritz and Havel, there are also countless picnic areas and bathing places where cyclists can relax. Via the former residence town of Neustrelitz with its star-shaped city complex, the route continues along Lake Tollensesee to the city Neubrandenburg. The historic fortification with its four magnificent city gates can be discovered here during an extensive city stroll. The tour then continues in the direction of Vorpommern. The port of Ueckermünde is reached at the region Stettiner Haff. We continue to the city Anklam, where we have to cross the Peene river. On the island of Usedom, the tour slowly approaches its destination. The route leads through sophisticated Baltic seaside resorts, between lush green dune forests and dreamlike beaches to Wolgast. The tour ends in this city at the Peenestrom.
