Bike Touring Highlight
Great view from here across the Elbe to the idyllic old town of Lauenburg.
Colorful half-timbered houses, historic steamships and wonderful panoramic views of the Elbe await you in the shipping town of Lauenburg / Elbe.
The southernmost city of Schleswig-Holstein is located in the border triangle of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Lower Saxony and Schleswig-Holstein.
Located directly on the bank and on the slopes of the Elbe, historical half-timbered houses are lined up in the Elbstraße. With the many lovingly renovated houses, the old town of Lauenburg is the largest monument ensemble in all of Schleswig-Holstein.
History comes to life on a walk over the old cobblestones of the shipping town. Numerous small streets and stairs connect the old town with the upper town. The castle located there with the castle tower and royal garden is reminiscent of the time of the Askan dukes, and the Elbe has shaped the history of the city. And the shipping itself can still be experienced in Lauenburg. Modern passenger ships and historic steamships invite you to tours on the Elbe, the Elbe-Lübeck Canal or the Elbe Side Canal. Near the waterways, the long-distance cycle routes “Elberadweg”, “Alte Salzstraße”, “Hamburg-Rügen” and the “Iron Curtain Trail” also cross in Lauenburg and offer a wonderful opportunity to explore the area by bike.
