In the extreme northeast of Germany lies Vorpommern, a rural region that is full of variety. Whether inland or offshore – Vorpommern’s mainland is rich in history, nature parks in unspoilt countryside, wild rivers and romantic coastal landscapes. There is also no lack of quaint small towns with a unique flair. You can relax at the Greifswalder Bodden, the Recknitz, the Peene, and the Szczecin Lagoon away from the crowds. Here, you can tuck into a fish sandwich on the harbor promenade and watch the sailboats swaying or take a refreshing dip in the lagoon, in the bay or in the Baltic Sea. So, do not forget to take your bathing suit with you or if you dare, you could take a dip in the cool water in your birthday suit, like the locals.

In this Collection, we present you the most beautiful cycling tours in Western Pomerania. They are all various lengths and you can combine some of the routes to make a longer day hike or take your time by choosing to complete one route over two days. On the route of the North German Romantics between Greifswald and Wolgast, you will cycle to places that influenced famous German romantics such as Caspar David Friedrich and Philipp Otto Runge. Around the seaside resort of Ueckermünde there are four hikes to help you discover the nature reserves on the Szczecin Lagoon. One of the routes even takes you across the border to Poland. Three of the hikes around the Hanseatic city of Anklam will reveal the fascinating Peene Valley and the unique landscape of the Peene estuary. Two short bike tours from Klein Bünzow to Anklam will show you the treasures in Lassaner Winkel. Finally, the Recknitztal circular route takes you from Ticino to Vorpommern, from Mecklenburg along the Recknitz to its mouth in the Saaler Bodden.

The routes are as varied as they are beautiful. You can easily reach all the starting and finishing points by train and you will also find small cafés and restaurants here and there. Although long sections have already been developed as cycle paths, there are still parts along the pavement, concrete slabs or sandy soil. But, this is part of the feeling of Northeast Germany and helps you to slow down as your ride through the beautiful landscape of Western Pomerania.
