On the road on the Baltic Sea Cycle Route

The German section of the Baltic Sea Cycle Route (also called the Baltic Sea Coastal Cycle Route) is almost 1.100 km long.

The AQUAMARIS beach residence is located directly on the Baltic Sea Cycle Path

And since the AQUAMARIS Strandresidenz is located directly on the Baltic Sea Cycle Path, we present this wonderful long-distance cycle path here.

The German section of the Baltic Sea Coast Cycle Path leads from Flensburg through Schleswig-Holstein and Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania to the Polish border on Usedom.

Only on Rügen do you have to climb more than 100 metres in altitude from time to time. Instead, lively seaside resorts alternate with secluded beaches and unique sights. The Baltic Sea Cycle Route circles the entire island of Rügen and passes directly by the AQUAMARIS beach residence.

Many AQUAMARIS guests experience the Strandresidenz during a short stop-over, others use the great location for wonderful day tours. Rügen is a cyclist’s paradise.

Rügen is a cyclists’ paradise

These are the things cycling enthusiasts should know about the Baltic Sea Cycle Route:

  •  The complete Baltic Sea Coastal Cycle Route runs from Copenhagen in Denmark through historic Hanseatic cities in Germany to Gdansk in Poland.
  •  In total, the Baltic Sea Coastal Cycle Route is approx. 2,000 km long. Cycling around Rügen covers approx. 270 km on the well-signposted Baltic Sea Cycle Route.
  • In many places you cycle directly along the sea, which makes it possible to stop regularly at picturesque bays and flat sandy beaches (with nice swimming stops in summer).
  • The cycle path passes numerous Baltic Sea islands, such as Fehmarn, Poel, Rügen or Usedom.
  • Beautiful, approx. 40 to 60 km long stages on Rügen lead from Stralsund to Gingst (53 km), from Ginst to Cape Arkona (60 km), from Cape Arkona to Sassnitz (approx. 50 km, past the AQUAMARIS beach resort and Jasmund National Park) and from Sassnitz to Göhren (33 km), from Göhren to Lauterbach (47 km), from Lauterbach to Frankenvorstadt (47 km) and on to Stralsund.
  • In terms of metres in altitude, this is more of a leisurely long-distance cycle route. But the wind can get to cyclists. It is therefore better to plan more stages, especially as there is so much to see along the way.

The stages of the Baltic Sea Cycle Route are well described on Komoot:
