The Lübeck-Elbe Canal has existed as a waterway and the old trade route from the salt town of Lüneburg to the Hanseatic city of Lübeck for centuries. Along the canal, which feels more like a river, you will pass villages, ships, half-timbered houses and of course the beautiful countryside that surrounds you.

On their own. Lüneburg is one of the most fascinating cities in Northern Germany. The brick Gothic stands in charming contrast to the lively, young city life. Everywhere in the city center the visitor encounters the history of the city, whose most important asset was salt. For more than 1000 years, salt was boiled in the saltworks and through the trade in the then precious "white gold" the city became rich and famous in the Middle Ages.

Overnight place: Lüneburg

Before you set off, get in the mood for the coming days in the German Salt Museum (in its own ranks) near the old town. You leave Lüneburg heading north.
In Erbstorf you will come across the Elbe Lateral Canal, which you will follow. In Scharnebeck you cycle past the impressive ship lift that bridges the 38 meter difference in altitude between the Lüneburg Heath and the Elbmarsch. We continue towards the Elbe. Today's stage destination, Lauenburg, is already in sight on the other bank. After a few kilometers up the Elbe you have the opportunity to cross the Elbe.

Overnight place: Lauenburg

Lauenburg's closed city complex with many lovingly restored half-timbered houses from the 16th-19th centuries. Century gives the old shipping town its unmistakable face. Today your way goes north in the direction of Büchen. After a few kilometers you will come across the Elbe-Lübeck Canal. Follow the wide curves of the canal. It goes past the village of Güster, with its lake landscape created from old gravel pits, via Grambek to Mölln.

Overnight place: In the Eulenspiegel town of Mölln or Ratzeburg

Mölln benefited from its good location at the intersection of important trade routes.
The "Alte Salzstraße" met other paths here that led east to Mecklenburg. In addition, there was the Stecknitz Canal, completed in 1398, as the oldest canal in Germany.
Your journey always follows the canal via Berkenthin to Krummesse. After a few kilometers you will reach the confluence of the Elbe-Lübeck Canal and the Trave. Alternatively from Ratzeburg along the Ratzeburg Lake northwards through the suburbs of the Hanseatic city. Lübeck, the destination of your journey, has been reached. Let the day end with a coffee and a piece of Lübeck marzipan (on your own).

Overnight place: Lübeck

Today you can visit the museum harbor, the Holstentor or the historic old town of Lübeck again. After breakfast, you will travel home on your own or with an extension.
