A salty breeze, the sound of the ocean, glittering water: the sea has always fascinated humans. Whether in a small harbour or on a lonely beach, it radiates magic. There are wonderful areas to discover not only on the Baltic Sea coast though, but also in the hinterland, which are often even more peaceful.

In this Collection, we present six magical places in Germany and Denmark that are ideal for exploring by bike. Set off and discover traces of the last ice age, which created erratic landscapes in Denmark including some hills. Cycle around the island of Fehmarn and the lakes in Holstein Switzerland; relax on wide beaches and walk through the countless nature reserves. The magical highlights include castles, manor houses and unique works of art from the Stone Age to the modern age – all are waiting for you.

The Tours vary in length, so there’s something for every fitness level. Even though you often ride through rural areas, you can still find a small inn or fish smokehouse where you can stop for a bite to eat.

Up for an adventure here? Then grab your bike and start riding! We wish you lots of fun and many magical moments on your adventures.
