Today begins the last stage of your 600 km journey in the footsteps of the monks. The route takes you today for almost 60 kilometers over the Baltic Sea to Puttgarden on the island of Fehmarn. In Oldenburg you drive through small villages to Heiligenhafen, 20 kilometers away, the center of which is located directly on a bay. You can admire the historic old town and the impressive cliffs here. The journey continues across the extreme tip of the Wagrien peninsula and through the vastness of the Feldmark. At Grossenbrode you will find an exciting nature trail on the other side of the tracks and the path leads you past the St. Katharinenkirche. Next, you will come to the Fehmarnsund Bridge, an impressive structure that connects Wagrien with the island of Fehmarn. Crossing this bridge and enjoying the magnificent view of the Baltic Sea and the island is a special experience. Now you are on the island of Fehmarn and the Mönchsweg leads you via Albertsdorf, past the small Petrikirche in Landkirchen, to Burg auf Fehmarn. Here the route runs in one lap through the small town. The last 20 kilometers will take you to Puttgarden with a short detour to Bannesdorf and along the coast. The official German route of the Mönchsweg ends here. But if travel fever grips you, the ferries will take you here to Denmark. The 430 km long Munkevejen starts from Rødby and leads you to the cathedral in Roskilde. In Fehmarn there are also many great bike paths along the coast so you can end your tour on the beach.In Puttgarden and Burg auf Fehmarn you will find a train station where regional trains run to Hamburg, and you can also take the Flixbus to various German cities.
