    Müritz

    Bike Touring Highlight

    With over 110 square kilometers, the Müritz is the largest inland lake in northern Germany. So it's no wonder that his name, which comes from Slavic, means “little sea”. The Müritz is just right for nature lovers, regardless of whether you come here for cycling, hiking or swimming.

    Part of the east bank belongs to the Müritz National Park, which is great to explore by bike or on foot. Outside the national park you will always find beautiful bathing spots on the banks of the Müritz, which either have a sandy beach, a bathing jetty or sunbathing lawns. Most bathing spots are free and there is guaranteed to be the right one for everyone. There are dog beaches, nudist stands, and shallow waterfront areas that are perfect for families with children. Those who prefer to swim under supervision can switch to a lido. However, all bathing spots have one thing in common: the wonderfully clear water of the Müritz.

    Schweriner See

    Hiking Highlight

    If you want to get out of the city for a moment and experience a bit of nature there, then you have come to the right place at Lake Schwerin. Here you can hike, ride a bike and cool off in the refreshing water of the lake on hot days.

    Riverside and cycle paths lead around the Schweriner See, on which you can explore the lake. Here and there you will find beautiful swimming spots with partly large sandy beaches. Some are in the immediate vicinity of the city and offer you a spectacular view of the city center of Schwerin, others are a bit further away, but offer you more nature and idyll.

    The insider tip, by the way, is the outer lake in the far north. The water quality is best there and the east bank is also ideal for surfing and sailing due to the wind conditions.

    A day trip by bike around the lake or rather just to one of the bathing spots on the water. The Kummerower See is the fourth largest lake in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and is more than beautiful in the midst of deep green meadows and fields. In the distance you can admire the mountains of Mecklenburg Switzerland and if you do not want to go swimming, just get in and enjoy the lake from the boat.

    Tollensesee

    Bike Touring Highlight

    Around the Tollensesee there is an approximately 35-kilometer circular path that is great for cycling. If you are planning a day at the lake, you should definitely pack your bathing suit in summer, because there are seven bathing spots on Lake Tollensesee. All but one are free of charge. The water quality is excellent on all beaches.

    Particularly noteworthy is the Augustenbad, one of the free bathing spots on the eastern shore of the lake, where Theodor Fontane was a bathing guest as early as 1897. In the Augustenbad you can enjoy a large sandy beach and a lawn with shady trees. A lifeguard ensures the safety of the swimmers and a restaurant for the physical well-being.

    Badestelle am Priestersee

    Bike Touring Highlight

    Like several other smaller lakes, the Priestersee belongs to the Schaalsee, which is one of the deepest German lakes. During the division of Germany, large parts of the area lay in a kind of slumber for almost 40 years, so that nature had room to develop. That's why this area is so beautiful and so worthy of protection that it was declared a Biosphere Reserve in 2000. Anyway, you can not jump into a lake much more idyllic.

    Badestelle am Schaalsee

    Bike Touring Highlight

    Since the Schaalsee is located in the middle of the Schaalsee Biosphere Reserve, you are only allowed to jump into the water at designated swimming areas to refresh yourself. But there are enough of them, for example in Eechin, Dargow, Lassahn, near Seedorf and Großzecher. There is also a lido in Zarrentin on the Schaalsee.

    The water quality is excellent throughout the lake. When you take a break, you can take a carefree swim in the cool water and really enjoy nature, which is ideally protected on this lake and can therefore unfold so wonderfully.

    Plauer See

    Bike Touring Highlight

    The Plauer See is one of the most beautiful lakes in the Mecklenburg Lake District. With its broad, natural banks, it offers many birds a place of retreat and a home. If you are out and about at the lake, with a little patience you can even observe such rare animals as the osprey or the bittern.

    The beautiful banks not only inspire birds, but also sunbathers and swimmers in summer. At numerous bathing spots you can spread your towel on sandy beaches or sunbathing lawns and go into the water.

    If you are also interested in other activities, the Plauer See offers you the opportunity to row, paddle, surf, sail, dive or go water skiing in various places. You can also get active outside of the water, namely with your bike. A path leads around the lake, on which you can circumnavigate the water. And if you like it so much at Plauer See that you would like to stay longer, the campsite on the lake is ideal for staying overnight.

    Zachuner See

    Bike Touring Highlight

    The Zachuner See or Kiessee Neu Zachun is a great destination for a stopover on a bike tour. Here you can refresh yourself with a cool drink in the restaurant on the lake and watch the water skiers and wakeboarders doing their tricks. Maybe you will feel like venturing onto one of the boards yourself and trying your luck on the water ski facility.If you like it quieter and still want to cool off in the water, you can swim on the sandy beach of the lake and relax on the large lawn. And if you want to extend your break, you have the option of staying overnight at the campsite.Entrance to the beach costs 1.50 euros for adults and 1 euro for children.

    Krakower See

    Bike Touring Highlight

    The southern part of the Krakower See, the Obersee, is under nature protection and is part of the Nossentiner / Schwinzer Heide nature park. The northern part, the Untersee, is used for tourism and is ideal for cycling and hiking with flat paths close to the shore.

    On your way around the lake you will pass many playful bays and peninsulas that make the landscape and the lake so interesting and varied. In one or the other bay you will also find bathing spots that you can use in summer to rest and cool off in the fresh water.

    If you want to stay longer at Krakower See or plan it as a stage destination of a tour, you can stay at the campsite right on the shore or in an accommodation in the town of Krakow am See.

    A large beach on the Inselsee awaits you here, which is ideal for a rest. Lots of trees grow on the spacious lawn on the bank, providing pleasant shade in summer. A great place to take a cool dip in the lake water on hot days and relax in the shade of the trees.

    Incidentally, the Inselsee was formed over 10,000 years ago during the last Ice Age. It got its name from the Schöninsel, which is located in the lake. If you want to visit the island, you can reach it via the bridge that connects it to the surrounding area.

    Klostersee

    Bike Touring Highlight

    The Klostersee is around 1.4 kilometers long, but on average only 180 meters wide. It got its name because it was probably created by the monks of Dargun Monastery.

    There is a lido on the southwestern shore of the lake, which is ideal for swimming in summer. You can set up your day camp on the large sandy beach or just take a short rest and refresh yourself in the water of the lake. With a lifeguard, sanitary facilities and a kiosk, the lido offers everything you need for a nice day at the lake.

    Mirower See

    Bike Touring Highlight

    The Mirower See is surrounded by wide fields, meadows and forests, which makes it a wonderful place for cycling. The town of Mirow extends on the south-east bank, and there is also a well-kept lido if you want to swim in the lake in summer. In the immediate vicinity of the beach there is a kiosk and a restaurant so that you can strengthen yourself.

    On the opposite bank, which is easy to reach by bike, there is a campsite with canoe rental.

    Teterower See

    Bike Touring Highlight

    There are various beaches at Teterower See, which attract water rats and sun worshipers in summer. You can also take a break here on a tour and enjoy the beautiful bathing areas on the lake.

    One of them is the NaturBad Teterower See, which is located on the southern tip of the lake. Here you can relax on the large sunbathing lawn while the youngest bathers dig holes and build castles on the small sandy beach. Several bathing jetties ensure easy access to the lake and fun in and around the water. In the summer months there is a lifeguard on site to supervise the bathing pleasure.

    If you are more drawn to the island, you can take a trip to the Burgwallinsel in Teterower See. You can also swim there from Easter to the end of September.

    Glambecker See

    Bike Touring Highlight

    The Glambeck lake is like a small natural oasis in the middle of the city. The best: There is a bathing establishment on the lake that invites you to cool off on hot summer days. As in many other bathing waters in the area, the Blue Flag flies here, which stands for excellent bathing spots with excellent water quality throughout Europe.

    The Bad am See is open daily from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Admission costs € 2 for adults and € 1 for children. Young bathers up to the age of 4 do not have to pay admission.

    Großer Weißer See

    Bike Touring Highlight

    Somewhat enchanted and slightly hidden, the White Lake is embedded in a picturesque forest. Here you will find pure nature, be it cycling or bathing in the lake. The forest lake is fed by fresh groundwater and is one of the most popular bathing lakes in the area, not least because of its beautiful location surrounded by trees.

    You can take a dip in the water at a large swimming area with a beach and boardwalks. Changing rooms and toilets are also available to bathers at the White Lake. A lifeguard is on site in summer to ensure safety when bathing. If you get hungry and have nothing with you for a picnic on the large lawn, you can strengthen yourself in a nearby restaurant.
