The journey to the Hotel Seerose in Bad Malente takes place on your own during the day. Your home for the next five nights is right on the banks of the picturesque Dieksee and just a few minutes' walk from the green heart of the city. Take a walk along the lake, discover the "Malenter Mermaid" - a double of the Copenhagen original - and take a deep breath in the Kurpark. The small natural paradise was once voted one of the most beautiful gardens in all of Germany. A coffee with a view of the lake in one of the many cafés and restaurants by the water already gets you in the mood for your first cycling stage.

Lots of water, lots of forests and a castle enthroned in the middle: On today's tour around Lake Plön you cycle through a unique natural and cultural landscape. Along the Dieksee, the course is initially southwest. After just a few kilometers you will reach Lake Suhr, which has made a name for itself as the cleanest lake in all of Schleswig-Holstein. If the weather is nice, you should definitely plan a longer stop in Bosau. In the little town on the eastern shore of the Great Plöner See, not only a fine sandy beach and the opportunity for boat trips await, but also the smallest bishop's cathedral in the world. Through a forest and after further panoramic kilometers on the lake shore you will reach Plön with its famous castle in the afternoon. The three-winged building is an outstanding architectural example of the stylistic mixture of Baroque and Renaissance elements - and is incidentally one of the largest palace complexes in northern Germany. After a visit and a stroll through the city, you can return to Bad Malente in a relaxed manner.

Sea in sight: After breakfast you start in the direction of Eutin. The city, picturesquely situated between two banks, has an old town worth seeing and a great history. Goethe already stayed here and once described Eutin as the "Weimar of the North" because of its cultural treasures. In addition to a visit to Eutin Castle, it is worth climbing the almost 39 meter high water tower, which already lets you spot your destination for the day: Lübeck Bay. You can reach this in the Baltic Sea resort of Sierksdorf, which draws attention to itself with a five kilometer long powder-fine sandy beach. From now on you can always cycle along the Baltic Sea. In Timmendorfer Strand, the SEA LIFE aquarium landscape lures you with an exciting view of the depths of the Baltic Sea, before you can watch maritime activity above the water over a fish sandwich in the port of Travemünde.
Return journey by train on your own.

Today's bike tour takes you first to the Selenter See nature reserve. The largest lakeside landscape in Schleswig-Holstein is known for its rich bird life. Accompanied by the calls of pretty eider ducks, barnacle geese or bitterns, you drive a few kilometers within sight of Lake Selenter before you reach the holiday resort of Laboe at noon. The brick naval memorial can not only be seen from many kilometers away, but is also worth a visit. Afterwards there is still time for a visit to the museum submarine U995 and a break on the white sandy beach before you cycle along the Kiel Fjord and several marinas to the state capital Kiel. Return journey by train on your own.

Experience Holstein Switzerland in all its facets. You leave Bad Malente in a northerly direction and cycle first along wide fields and through small woods. Among other things, you touch the Malkwitz winery. Did you think you could get a vineyard tour so far north? By the way, you should also enjoy a piece of homemade strawberry cake here, so that you can then head towards the Baltic Sea strengthened and elated. From Sehlendorf you are accompanied by a fantastic sea view. In the idyllic Hohwacht, which draws attention to itself with enchanted thatched cottages and a wide sandy beach, the so-called "flounder" has to be discovered. The unique lake platform is an absolute eye-catcher, a great photo opportunity and the landmark of the former fishing village. Passing small lakes, the 128 meter high Pilsberg (third highest elevation in Schleswig-Holstein) and the flower-lined climatic health resort of Lütjenburg, you return to Bad Malente.
