On the last stage you start from Sassnitz and cycle over the Jasmund peninsula to the south, where the Baltic seaside resorts line up on the Baltic coast like a string of pearls.From the port city of Sassnitz you first drive via Mukran on the Baltic Sea coast in the direction of Prora. Prora has become known for the huge hotel complex that the National Socialists once built here according to the motto “Strength through Joy”.The first Baltic seaside resort that you will see on this stage is Binz. Here you can also get a first impression of the typical Baltic Sea resort architecture. A beautiful example of the white elegant houses is the Kurhaus, which is located in the immediate vicinity of the pier.We continue on hilly terrain through the forest of Granitz. On your left you will always be able to see a piece of the Baltic Sea. It is possible that you have to pedal more here, but these efforts will be rewarded immediately when you reach the Ostseebad Sellin. Because from there the bike path runs almost on flat stretches.The Ostseebad Sellin is best known for its pier. Here, too, you will find some of the neat villas in the typical resort architecture.From Sellin the themed trail leads you directly to the next Baltic Sea resort: Baabe. From here it goes to the west side of Mönchgut. You ride on a fantastic bike path along Havinger Bay, which leads you through the small towns of Middelhagen and Philippshagen back to the east side of the Mönchgut peninsula.Here on the Baltic coast you drive through the Baltic resort of Göhren via Lobbe in the direction of Thiessow with a detour to the port in Gager. Here a sign on the themed cycle path indicates that ice fishing was once operated in Gager, which was an important extra income for fishermen and farmers in harsh winters. Nowadays the harbor is an idyllic place where you can watch the fishing and sport boats, or buy a fish sandwich from the fisherman directly from the boat.After this detour, it is only a few kilometers to the Ostseebad Thiessow. At the port of Thiessow you have finally reached your stage destination and the end of the themed bike path.With its reed belt lined with several meters wide on the shore area, which extends to the port entrance, the port of Thiessow on the Zicker See lies in the middle of nature. Adjacent fields and lawns give the port area an idyllic character.You can now start your journey home via the RADZfatz bus and then the train or you can stay a little longer in the southernmost Baltic Sea resort on the island of Rügen.
