Two of the most exciting European cities connect 700 kilometres, two countries and a sea. On the Berlin-Copenhagen long-distance cycle route you can ride from pulsating Berlin to stylish Copenhagen.

The first 400 kilometres will take you through Brandenburg and Mecklenburg to Rostock. On the way unique cycle paths are waiting for you, which lead along straight canals, wind their way around the great waters of the Mecklenburg Lake District and pass through rustic forests, lush meadows and wide fields. The remaining 300 kilometres on the way to Copenhagen will take you through Denmark's unspoilt countryside, which is characterised by green meadows, lovely hills, imposing cliffs and beautiful beaches.

In this collection we have put together the Berlin-Copenhagen cycle path for you. In 14 stages, the journey goes from one capital city to the other, from Berlin to Copenhagen. You will almost always travel through unique nature, but you can still enjoy a great infrastructure along the cycle path. In Germany you can choose from a wide range of accommodation options and public transport connections at all departure points and stopovers.

There are also plenty of places to stay on the road in more rural Denmark, especially campsites, many of which are along the route. Here it is also possible to change to public transport such as bus or train if you want to shorten the tour a bit.

    On the way from Berlin to Copenhagen you have now arrived in Denmark after taking the ferry from Rostock to Gedser. The bike tour through this beautiful country can begin.

    

    A short 26-kilometer stage to Nykøbing Falster awaits you at the start. From the southern tip of Falster Island, head north. The route

    On today's stage you cycle from Nykøbing Falster to Stege / Møn. The special thing about this section is that you are doing island hopping by bike today! You first take a ferry from Falster to Bogø and then cycle over a bridge to Møn. A very special cycling experience!

    On today's stage, you can expect a wonderful round tour over the island of Møn, which you should definitely not miss. With Denmark's highest cliff, Møns Klint, the highlight of the tour, it goes 47 kilometers in a loop from Stege back to Stege - perhaps not a typical route of a long-distance cycle path

    Today's stage is again mainly characterized by the scenic beauty of Denmark, with two exceptions: The Queen Alexandrine Bridge, which connects the islands of Møn and Sjælland and is a symbol of the country, and the Kalvehave Church with its simple but memorable Architecture.
