588 km (~84km per day)
Some hills, Quiet roads, On-road
The trip starts in the German capital of and ends in the most beautiful city and capital of Denmark.
On the way we pass through beautiful countryside with forests, natural lakes, meadows and fields north of Berlin. We then arrive in the Hanseatic city of Lubeck, Germany’s most extensive UNESCO World Heritage Site. We will have a day off here to explore this unique and remarkable city on the Baltic coast.
We then continue to the northern tip of Germany, near the town of Puttgarden. From there, a ferry will take us to Denmark. Denmark has one of the most extensive bike path networks in Europe and Danish drivers are arguably the most considerate drivers in the world when it comes to cyclists. We spend a few days on the bike paths and countryside roads of Denmark before arriving in Copenhagen, where, apart from other sightseeing, you will have the opportunity to explore the city from a boat.
There is so much to see in Berlin as well as Copenhagen and we certainly encourage you to stay a few more days before and after the trip. Moreover, should you desire to continue further north, to Sweden and Finland, you can join us for the second leg of our Scandinavian adventure, a tour from Copenhagen to Helsinki via Stockholm, which immediately follows the tour you were just on. You will not regret it.
For full enjoyment of the trip, you should come prepared to complete the 70-95 km / 45-60 mile days comfortably on flat and just very slightly rolling terrain. Most of the hilly terrain occurs during the last four days of the trip.
Our route is mostly designed along small, quiet, and picturesque roads with as little car traffic as possible and/or bike paths that enhance your sightseeing experience of the local areas. With the exception of a few sections, most of the roads and bike paths are paved. It means that the trip is suitable for road as well as hybrid bikes.
