In the footsteps of the Vikings and others

The bike tour with your own bikes started and ended in Husum in a very nice hotel/hotel at the castle park. This was about 10 minutes from the harbor, the actual center. And since the hotel didn't have a restaurant, we went there for dinner. The selection was more than sufficient and for every taste. The shipping museum there is also recommended, small but nice. For the first day of cycling we grabbed provisions at the supermarket near the hotel. What luck! The inn in Dannewerk mentioned in the travel guide was also closed during the day, like almost all the inns mentioned. This should be revised! The hotel in Schleswig was great/Waldschlösschen, absolutely! We chose the more expensive category. Unfortunately the hotel was a little outside of Schleswig, but had a very good restaurant. And swimming pool and sauna waren a compensation. After Kappeln in the rain, the hotel/city of Kappeln again had no restaurant. If you arrive soaked, you won't want to go out again in the evening. We could have used the sauna as a consolation. Eckernförde, again a hotel/Seelust outside of the city without a restaurant. The view of the Baltic Sea from the room was very limited by a garden sauna with a privacy fence - and we didn't feel like visiting the neighboring Chinese restaurant. Off to Rendsburg. Here the tour guide mockingly sent us to the left, but the right was correct, or the route of the road was described very ambiguously. We weren't the only ones wandering around! Luckily I noticed it in time. The Covent Garden Hotel was huge, a lovely room with a canal view. We decided not to eat here because we had already eaten really well on the canal. Off to Friedrichstadt, where we got a guesthouse, Marktblick, at a discount due to our late booking. Great, right on the market, the suite, all restaurants in sight. And we did the Treene trip as soon as we arrived, because sailing was already over at 15:30 p.m., no matter what the internet said about it. Was worth it! This guesthouse beat some hotels in terms of comfort! The bike tour was really nice except for the one rainy day, which we got over. Mileage information between the individual sections would be very helpful in order to be able to orientate ourselves better.

A nice bike tour

A bike tour with lots of sea, fjord, river, canal, lake and dyke views. The cycle paths are well developed and easy to drive with little traffic.

Great tour and very nice route

As always, very good service when booking the trip and very well organized, especially the route description. A tip for choosing a bike: It's best to ride the route with a trekking bike, especially through the Hütten mountains. Now review hotels.One thing I didn't really like: the Hotel Försterhaus = loose floorboards with nails! Danger of injury! and the service is overloaded. I had to go there myself to pay for my meal. When I arrived, I was asked to eat before 20 p.m. if possible, as they were expecting a larger group. Was eating at 19 p.m. and still received my food. At 19:30 p.m. the bus group arrived and then things got going. As a guest, I expect that I will not be affected by the stress of the team and that no guests will be served differently than others, regardless of whether they are a tour group by bus or a solo traveler. I slept in the building next door with construction workers. Not so wild because of one night but cleanliness and security there is no mercy. The whole system gives the impression that they are on the verge of bankruptcy. The other Meck bike tourers also had this impression. When I was back in Husum, the employee told me that the building next door was actually intended for employees... The best was Thomsen's Motel with a very well-stocked minibar and Hotel Herzog with a very nice courtyard and nice furnishings - everything done in an "old" style . All other hotels are good to very good average. The breakfast was always very good, no frills. Two hotels are particularly worth mentioning here: Heldts Hotel (scrambled eggs with freshly served bacon, etc.) and Hotel Herzog (old coffee pots, etc. like grandmother's and candlelight). The 2 additional Nights in Fahrdorf and Husum were worth it. The Viking museum was very informative and well done. 2 m from the hotel there is a beautiful small beach with shower, playground and toilet facilities. why not mentioned in the tour description. Was there after visiting the museum. On the last day in Husum I took a tour to the island of Nordstrand (round trip approx. 600 km). Very beautiful and you can see the mudflats and lots of sheep. This could be called the 64st day or include the last day in the tour as an additional offer. Otherwise I had very nice, relaxing days and the right cycling bathing weather in contrast to the temperatures of the last few days here in the Ore Mountains.

Questionnaire online

Super organized trip, unfortunately the weather wasn't so nice, but nobody can do anything about that. I would do it again anytime and have already recommended it. As an improvement, I would edit the itinerary description and shorten it to essential detail.

Recommended circular tour

A week on tour with your own e-bike: everyday life is forgotten! The weather is of course crucial for a bike tour - lucky. We liked the route. We got to know a bit of Germany and we think it's definitely worth it. We have changed some routes (from Kappeln to Eckernförde along the Baltic Sea coast - very nice tour). On the last day after Husum we rode stretches along the dike. The luggage transport worked perfectly!!! At this point, thanks to those who reliably brought our heavy bags to the place on a daily basis!!! The accommodations waren good. Only the hotel in Schleswig didn't work at all. For the A category, it disappointed us on all counts (a small room with a plush blue carpet and worn furniture - overall the hotel felt completely "tired"). Overall: recommended to book this tour.
- Michael Witting


well organized bike tour

We really liked it. The daily itineraries waren great put together. The hotels, including breakfast, have met our expectations. Special mention should be made of the hotel in Husum, the breakfast buffet "super tasty". The hotel staff all friendly. Since we traveled individually and had our own bikes with us, we can of course not rate the bike quality and travel support. We would recommend you as a tour operator at any time and would also be happy to plan a trip with you again.

Nice tour with Fromstrichen at the accommodation

Overall, we liked the tour, even if the weather gods weren't kind to us. The Schlei in particular is beautiful and varied. The stage locations also have something to offer for many tastes. It's just a pity that we lived outside of Schleswig, we would have liked to have spent more time there (but the hotel in Fahrdorf was good). In the hotel list, the Hotel Herzog Friedrich in Friedrichstadt unfortunately stands out extremely negatively (we cannot understand one of the earlier reviews). Unfortunately, a beautiful garden/courtyard and vintage ambience cannot make up for a rundown and unclean room. A torn carpet with obvious folds and many stains awaited us (walking barefoot is not recommended), stained curtains and wallpaper, etc. We first collected various "roommates" and their nets. Apparently the room hadn't been cleaned beforehand. Storage options for the bikes: none (!). The list could go on, but it should suffice here. Please remove this house from the list!!! The accommodations are therefore only three stars. On the other hand, we really liked the Hotel Am Schlosspark in Husum, where we spent two additional nights. Suggestion for the route of the tour: the last stage back to Husum criss-crossed a largely unchanged landscape (although it is only 14 km from Friedrichstadt to Husum). Alternatively, maybe install Nordstrand?

Anonymous online review from 28.06.2022

The trip was great - maybe with the exception of the Hotel Stadt Kappeln. We recommend a tide calendar: high water in the entire bathroom after the shower, storm surge if the room is occupied by 2 showering people :-) The bicycles waren in very good condition, but we had a deja vu: the chain was (much) too loose on the E.191, the computer on the E.104 was fine, but the display was defective and not waterproof - just like the last two bikes September. Perhaps waren it the same wheels? We are already considering which tour we will book with you next.

Map material and digital routing waren very good! Unfortunately, lugging the luggage to the 2nd floor of several hotels was very difficult.
