Beautiful countryside and unforgettable sea views await as you cycle in the far north, along the North Sea in Schleswig-Holstein. The cycle path runs along the dunes, occasionally venturing inland where fields of sheep graze happily. Idyllic little villages with pretty Frisian houses and long sandy beaches provide the perfect opportunity to take a leisurely break before continuing to cycle through lush meadows and fields.

You can discover the coastline and its islands on a network of beautiful cycle paths that runs through the entire region. In this Collection, we show you the ten most beautiful day trips along the North Sea. From a relaxed ride with numerous stops at farm shops where you can enjoy regional specialties to island routes on Föhr, Amrum, Pellworm and Sylt where the fresh North Sea wind will cool your cheeks to the cabbage route through the largest cabbage growing area in Europe – cycling in the North Sea has a lot to offer.

The day trips in this Collection are mostly flat and between seven miles (eleven km) and 28 miles (45 km) long. The shorter routes are ideal for families with children. If the wind makes you push a little harder, you can always take extra breaks to enjoy the fresh salty air and wonderful sea views a little while longer.

Information on how to get to the islands by boat and train can be found here: nordseetourismus.de/anreise-nordsee
