The approximate difficulty level for this tour
Day 1: Individual arrival in Frankfurt/Oder
Discover the old university town of Frankfurt/Oder. There are a range of architectural highlights in store, from imposing, listed North German brick Gothic buildings to the impressive campus of the European University Viadrina, which exists since 1506.
Day 2: Frankfurt/Oder – Groß Neuendorf/Altlewin (approx. 58 – 68 km)
Today’s route takes you through the low lying natural paradise of the Oderbruch marshes. The sea of picturesque fields and seemingly endless tree-lined avenues that accompany you as you pedal through the flat, marshy countryside or along the top of the dike will ensure that the Oderbruch lives long in your memory!
Day 3: Groß Neuendorf/Altlewin – Schwedt/Oder (ca. 65 km)
Another day, another procession of glorious natural vistas! Your route takes you through the Lower Oder Valley National Park, which is Germany’s only national park dedicated to river meadows. It ranks among the most biodiverse habitats in the country. You then glide past the Stolper Grützpott – a 12th-century fortified tower – and Lenné Landscape Park in Criewen before arriving in Schwedt/Oder.
Day 4: Schwedt/Oder – Löcknitz (approx.80 km)
Savour the last few kilometres of unspoilt nature and endless meadows as you near the northern edge of the Lower Oder Valley. From Gartz onwards your route takes you through hilly countryside to Löcknitz.
Day 5: Löcknitz – Ueckermünde (approx. 58 km)
Today’s route is characterised by expansive moorland and picturesque landscapes of the Uecker River and the adjacent Stettiner Haff, a Baltic lagoon at the mouth of the Oder and Peene rivers. The region is home to a huge variety of flora and fauna. A stroll around Ueckermünde’s pretty old town and romantic harbour is a delightful end to a splendid day.
Day 6: Ueckermünde – Island of Usedom (approx. 30 – 45 km)
Your day begins on the early ferry from Ueckermünde to Kamminke on the popular island of Usedom. This gives you plenty of time to cycle around exploring a number of imperial bathing resorts, perhaps even finding a piece of the island’s famed amber on the shoreline. You will stay in either Ückeritz or Zempin, both of which are among the island’s “amber resorts”.
Day 7: Overnight stay on the Island of Usedom
Usedom is known as the “Green Island” due to its forested, sometimes hilly paths and broad, sandy beaches. Enjoy your last day on Usedom and take your time to discover the island.
Day 8: Individual departure from the Island of Usedom or transfer service to Frankfurt/Oder.
A slight-challenging bike tour. You cycle mostly on bike paths and sometimes on side streets with less traffic. Two stages are a little bit hilly.
