The route begins in Berlin. With the river Panke by your side, you head for Bernau. From there the route takes you through forests and across gently rolling hills in a landscape shaped by the ice age. Barnim nature park and Schorfheide-Chorin biosphere reserve allow you to discover nature at its most unspoilt. Along the route you can find cultural treasures such as stately homes, churches, abbeys and museums, all well worth a visit. At Nieden the river you are following changes its name from Ucker to Uecker, then accompanies the route to Ueckermünde. After Anklam, the route continues to Usedom Island. Here you will find the old imperial resorts of Ahlbeck, Heringsdorf and Bansin. Your journey ends in Peenemünde on the Peenestrom strait. Terrain: the route is mainly level, but with some hilly sections, and runs largely on dedicated cycle paths away from traffic. Some stretches follow forest, farm and cobblestone tracks. Scenery: Berlin, woodland and moors in the Schorfheide-Chorin biosphere reserve, meadowland and forests in the Uckermark region, riverscapes and lakelands, Szczecin Bay, Usedom Island, Baltic Sea beaches.
