    The Drägerweg is a consistently made since 2007 trail between Lübeck and Rothenhusen.

    The trail runs almost parallel to the Wakenitz, but has little contact with the river in the southern part. Between the jetties Moltke bridge in Lübeck and Rothenhusen on Ratzeburger lake the path length is about 18 km. The waterway, used by the Wakenitz boat, is about 14 km long.

    The name refers to the former Lübeck manufacturer Heinrich Dräger, whose foundation has contributed organisationally and financially. Further funding was provided from the A 20 motorway project.

  • You can drive on the Drägerweg along the Wakenitz to Ratzeburger See. However, you do not always drive right on the water. In between, make a detour to Absalonshorst. There is a restaurant and a jetty there. The boat goes from Lübeck to Rothenhusen (at the transition to Ratzeburg lake). You can also stop there (see photo). Unfortunately, the ship does not carry bicycles. On the way, you might see some kingfishers on Wakenitz.

  • Nature lovers will find on the Drägerweg along the Wakenitz a river landscape with enchanted alluvial forests and dammed lake landscapes. Far away from the traffic, they reach along the banks or on the water from the city center of Lübeck into a green, unspoiled paradise. For hikers and cyclists, the signposted "Drägerweg" leads over 15 kilometers to Ratzeburg Lake. Water sports enthusiasts such as canoeists, rowers and sailors will find striking destinations on the west bank such as the Müggenbusch or the Absalonshorst. The former fishing foothills are now run as gastronomic businesses and have jetties where you can land. In addition, there are also the excursion boats of the "Wakenitz shipping Quandt".
    An absolutely recommendable route.

  • Last summer, the Drägerweg was partially closed. It was not easy to find an alternative route to the Ratzeburger See.

  • The approximately 18-kilometer Drägerweg leads from Lübeck to Rothenhusen and runs almost parallel to the Wakenitz River, so that hikers can always see water. The idyllic route begins at the Moltkebrücke. You pass the so-called Small Lake via the Müggenbusch restaurant with a large coffee and beer garden to the Löwenstadt viewpoint. At Ratzeburg Lake, the path continues on the western side to the town of Ratzeburg. The name of the idyllic hiking trail refers to the Lübeck factory owner Heinrich Dräger, whose foundation contributed to the construction of the route.geo.de/reisen/reise-inspiration/draegerweg--luebeck_30145130-30167420.html

  • Super bike path along the Wakenitz/Drägerradweg suitable for small children - our 5 year old was enthusiastic about the narrow natural paths that meander between Lübeck Herrentunnel and Ratzeburger See along the Wakenitz.
