The round around the inner lake Schwerin I was with Marlies and Buddy 2011 - before Komoot - ever ridden. Today, I was alone on the road and have also surrounded the same Schwerin outer lake with. We also knew the outer lake from past, unfortunately not yet recorded, tours. Was very nice today, I can recommend this tour.

In the already summery temperatures, we stayed today in the surrounding area and have made a nice bike ride through the Bistal to Dalbekschlucht and are relaxed back on the villages again. The route through the Bistal and the Dalbekschlucht is more of an MTB tour - but you can also drive it with normal bicycles. The slope in the southwestern part of the Dalbekschlucht is really violent - unfortunately I did not make it today because I got stuck in a slightly muddy place - the rear wheel turned when pedaling through and I had to dismount - that would have to try more often / train , then you could do it. Unfortunately, the photos and the elevation profile of the tour do not really reflect how steep it is - if you are there, you can better assess it

Until Bleckede we were already cycled - today was the next stretch to Hitzacker for me. The Elbuferstraße along to Dömitz I used to go by motorbike several times - it was always a lot of fun - but now with the bike it is the even better alternative.A top highlight for me is always the lookout tower on the Kniepenberg. From there you have fantastic views in all directions.
And the descent from the mountain is really cool. For the first time today I had over 60 km / h on the speedometer with this bike. The track here has gradients and gradients of up to 13%! That's really fun.
The return trip on the other side of the Elbe is rather leisurely - always on or along the dike with views of the Elbe - but also beautiful. There were also many other cyclists on the road today - probably because this route is easier to drive without inclines and inclines. Personally, I liked the hint better, because it is much more diversified.Hitzacker is a pretty little town with a history and beautiful half-timbered houses. I have always liked it very much. It is worthwhile to stop by there.The small Elbe ferry at Hitzacker has brought me well and quickly over the Elbe for € 2.80 - as well as the Elbe ferry Bleckede back for only € 1.50.Let's see how long it takes for us to cycle the Elbe from the source to the mouth.

The 800 years old cultural monument Gut Basthorst is a nice stage destination for tours in our near surroundings. We always come here again and again. Also today it was again a very nice and relaxing tour with Marlies and Buddy past the blooming rapeseed fields.The historic estate has not been the home of vocalist Vicky Leandros for several years, but she still likes to return here regularly.At Gut Basthorst, traditional agriculture and forestry exist alongside modern, former stables and the manor house for weddings, company celebrations, conferences, fairs, concerts and markets. Above all, the atmospheric, traditional spring, autumn and Christmas markets attract many thousands of visitors each year. Then there is really something going on here and also a lot of excitement.In addition, you can enjoy fresh, regional food all year round in the well-kept restaurant to the horse stable and the rose garden behind it, and end the evening in one of the individually furnished hotel rooms in the yard or in one of the apartments.The estate with its more than 30 buildings has become home to several medium-sized businesses and dealers as well as a distillery, a gunsmith, an antique dealer, a Swedish whiskey barrel warehouse and a restoration workshop. Their exclusive, often handmade goods are produced and sold here on site.
As the rain radar showed, today in Schleswig-Holstein we have been spared from the big rain clouds, which were over the rest of Germany. We even had sunshine here. So nothing like getting out into nature and grab a lot of fresh spring air. Of course, Marlies and Buddy were also there and we had a lot of fun together.
On the way back from Eckernförde I made a short detour to Kiel. I also know the state capital very well from my Rendsburg time. We often went shopping there and I went to vocational school here. We had often visited my aunt in Friedrichsort and connected it with a day at the beach on the Kiel Fjord.
The still relatively good weather I have used for a round trip in the beautiful Baltic Sea Eckernförde. Up here and on the beaches of the Eckernförde Bay I have spent many beautiful summer days since my earliest childhood.
We've been here many times and I refreshed precious old memories today.
On the way back from Ketzin to Schwarzenbek we made a stopover in Tangermünde and strolled through the historic old town. We have not been here yet, but had already heard a lot about this interesting city and were not disappointed. It really is a wonderful and very worth seeing city. An absolute top recommendation from us.
Herr von Ribbeck on Ribbeck in the Havelland, a pear tree in his garden stood ....
Where we were just in the vicinity, we have made a little detour to the castle Ribbeck. Can we clearly recommend - especially the Williams Christ pear Edelbrand, which we have just tasted.
Mitten in Schleswig-Holstein, in der schönen Stadt Rendsburg, bin ich geboren und habe dort die ersten 20 Jahre meines Lebens verbracht.
Weitere 20 Jahre habe ich in Hamburg gewohnt. Jetzt habe ich bereits seit über 20 Jahren mein Domizil im schönen Schwarzenbek im Herzogtum Lauenburg in Schleswig-Holstein.Ich war schon immer viel zu Fuß und mit dem Fahrrad unterwegs gewesen. Zunächst in Rendsburg und Umgebung - später dann auch die ganze deutsche und dänische Nord- und Ostseeküste rauf und runter sowie auch überregional in Deutschland und Europa.Seit Oktober 2017 bin ich - nach über 45 Jahren im Berufsleben - im wohlverdienten Ruhestand und habe jetzt endlich mehr Zeit, mit dem Fahrrad (Pedelec) oder auch zu Fuß auf Entdeckertouren zu gehen. Oft sind auch meine Frau Marlies und unser Zwergschnauzer Buddy dabei.
Buddy ist schon 11 Jahre alt und hat leider "Rücken" - er kann keine längeren Strecken mehr laufen, möchte aber natürlich immer mit dabei sein. Deswegen kommt er in seinen Fahrradhundekorb oder in seine Karre, wenn er nicht mehr laufen kann. Da fühlt er sich wohl und wir sind alle mobil. LG Jörg 🙂
