Flowering rape fields, shady beech forests, picturesque villages, remote natural beaches, impressive country estates and rugged cliffs along the Baltic Sea: When you set off on the Schwansen peninsula, things get relaxed - but definitely not boring. Here you can ride through the remote hinterland in the morning through wonderful old avenues or along colourful meadows and fields, while in the afternoon you can let the sun shine on your fur on one of the postcard ripe beaches. Holiday feeling and nature idyll are right next to each other here and you don't even have to travel far to get there: Situated in the north of Schleswig-Holstein, the peninsula is easily accessible via Eckernförde by car or train.
In this collection we show you seven varied bike tours, which all start and end in the holiday resort of Damp or in the immediate vicinity. Damp is situated directly on the Baltic Sea and is an ideal starting point for your exploration tours. After you have exhausted yourself, you can relax on the beach or - even in "slippery weather" - enjoy real seawater in the discovery pool. The young village is well-prepared for tourists and offers you numerous accommodations and refreshment facilities. The historic Gut Damp is particularly worth mentioning: here you will pass by automatically on the way back on most of our tours - ideal for fortifying yourself in the restaurant "Kuhhaus" in a wonderful ambience.
The tours of this collection are declared as "mountain bike tours". And indeed, you use many beautiful paths and trails off the beaten track. But of course no alpine trail challenges await you here. The tours are all easy to ride and you will also have a lot of fun with a simple mountain bike or a touring bike. Just be aware that you won't be riding on asphalt all the time. True to the motto of the region: Take it easy - then you will enjoy a wonderfully relaxed time in the beautiful landscape of Swan.
