Bike Touring Highlight
Colorful half-timbered houses, historic steamboats and wonderful views over the Elbe await you in the boatman town of Lauenburg / Elbe.
The southernmost city of Schleswig-Holstein is located in the border triangle Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Lower Saxony and Schleswig-Holstein.
Located right on the banks and on the slopes of the Elbe, historic half-timbered houses in the Elbstraße line up. With the many lovingly restored houses, the old town of Lauenburg is the largest monument ensemble in Schleswig-Holstein.
A stroll through the cobblestones of Schifferstadt brings history to life. Numerous small streets and stairs connect the old town with the upper town. The castle with its castle tower and princely garden is reminiscent of the time of the Ascanian dukes. The Elbe has shaped the history of the city. And the shipping itself can still be experienced in Lauenburg. Modern passenger ships and historic steamboats invite to tours on the Elbe, the Elbe-Lübeck-Kanal or the Elbe-Seiten-Kanal. Near the waterways intersect in Lauenburg and the cycle paths "Elberadweg", "Old Salt Road", "Hamburg-Rügen" and the "Iron Curtain Trail" and offer a wonderful opportunity to explore the area by bike. All further information can be found under Duchy -lauenburg.de

The view shows the old town and is always worth a stop. Coming from Lauenburg it goes directly behind the bridge down a steep staircase and on the other side then on the Elbe long back towards Tespe and Marschacht. Directly behind bridge, the view can then be deepened with an ice.

Lauenborg, the dutch Schipperstadt at Elwstrom, bromsen, saddle and a la bade Tiet. Dor löt sik dat fien utholln, most of all in the city of ünnen an de elw.
Lauenburg is an old skipper town on the river Elbe. The most beautiful to look at probably the houses, streets, restaurants and the shipyard down by the Elbe.

A good way to cross the Elbe here. The next Elbe bridge to the east is only about 70km further (via the Elbe Cycle Path), at Dömitz. In between there are three Elbe ferries with which you can cross the Elbe during the day (at Bleckede, Neu Darchau and Hiztacker).From the Lauenburg Elbe bridge you have a very nice view over the Elbe and Lauenburg!
