Berlin-Copenhagen Cycle Route - In search of the Little Mermaid

This route between the capital cities of Berlin and Copenhagen provides an exciting and enjoyable bike tour. It runs through Brandenburg and Mecklenburg- Western Pomerania all the way to Denmark.

The journey to Copenhagen begins on Schlossplatz square in Berlin. From here, you set off into the tranquil expanse of the Brandenburg region. As you follow the Havel river, Oranienburg and Fürstenberg/Havel are excellent places to stop. The Mecklenburg Lakes provide a great place to cool off. Neustrelitz and Güstrow offer cultural attractions en route, and soon you are heading for Rostock where you take the ferry across to Denmark. Here the cycle route follows the steep coast with its white chalk cliffs through Nykøbing and Møn, and on to the cycling-friendly city of Copenhagen, where the Little Mermaid awaits.

Terrain: most of the paths are asphalt, some hilly sections, headwinds possible; not always traffic-free. In Denmark, the route follows national cycle route no. 9.

Scenery: cityscapes in Berlin and Copenhagen, forests, lakelands in Brandenburg and Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, islands, and cliffs and beaches along the coast.
