Arrival at the Baltic Sea to Timmendorf beach and move into your accommodation. The travel documents and rental bikes (if booked) are at your hotel. Today you have got time to check out the large range of activities offered incl. free sport and recreational activities.
The first day is well suited for exploring the area on a leisurely walk. You shall head towards the beach promenade and Niendorf harbour. You stroll along the promenade and dive into the modern Baltic Sea lifestyle. Then you will walk along the Aalbeck to Niendorf bird park, where there are around 1,000 species of birds for you to see. You continue walking to the Herman-Löns Turm. On one of the long wooden bridges via the Aalbeck, you can admire the many species of birds in the wild. You walk past Lake Heemelsdorf where you can find Germany’s lowest point. You will return back to Timmendorf beach and your accommodation through the beautiful nature protection area, Aalbeek-Niderungen.
Today you take the train (organised by yourself) for about 1.5 hours to the Baltic island, Fehmarn. As soon as you have crossed the impressive Fehmarns bridge, you get the island feeling straight away. You start the tour from the station, Burg auf Fehmarn, on the cycle path that has been built on the old train tracks towards the South and to the South beach. Here you can grab your swimming things and relax in one of the many thousands of deck chairs. If the weather were to be bad the gigantic swimming pool ‘FehMare’ is a great place to spend the time. You will then continue on your way along the bike path network to Puttgarden running along the length of the East coast. There are lots of lidos along the way where you can cool down. Enjoy the beautiful cliff views! You then continue cycling to the Niobe monument and from there you head back to where you started through the inland island areas. Those who would like to spend longer swimming can do the shorter cycle ride. You can then head back to Timmendorf beach by train.
Lübeck, the hanseatic town is worth a visit: the old town has been well maintained and has therefore become a UNESCO world heritage site. Culture is abundant here and there is a lot for children to explore ranging from Lübeck’s harbour to a history adventure area, ships and play areas. You shall explore Lübeck’s old town from a very unique and active standpoint - from a canoe! After a short train ride and a walk you will receive your equipment and get into your canoe. It doesn’t matter which direction you choose as the light current means that paddling around the old town is a leisurely tour that is manageable for every ability. You can paddle around in a relaxed manner and observe the town’s hustle and bustle from the water. You will slowly go through the ‘Strecknitzfahrer’ quarter and past the museum harbour. After your canoe tour, you will take the train back to Timmendorf beach. Particularly sporty families can cycle the route both to and from Lübeck.
Today you get back on your bike. You cycle along the promenade towards the North past the SEA LIFE Timmendorf beach where there are over 2,500 animals in over 38 tanks and aquariums. Then continue to Scharbeutz and Haffkrug. The Baltic Sea and its sandy beaches will lure you to take a break and to go for a dip or alternatively maybe you fancy an ice cream and a little stroll along the promenade? You then continue your cycle ride to Sierksdorf. The large Hansa park is located here. It has over 125 attractions and 35 rides. Fun is guaranteed here! You then continue along the bike path to the Lübeck bay and to the Neustädt harbour. From there you go via Pönitz am See and then back to Scharbeutz. From there you will recognise the last few kilometres back to your hotel.
