Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, a pedal-pushers country. Roll up your trouser leg, hop onto the saddle and set off on an adventure of freedom.
Chestnuts and lime trees spread a canopy of leaves over picturesque avenues. They lead to sleepy villages where storks clatter and geese honk. Imposing red- brick churches have been towering over the pleasant towns for centuries. In spring, the scent of the golden-yellow rape tickles your nose. A fresh summer's breeze dispels the sweltering heat. And when sea buckthorn glows in the autumn, the heavens are filled with the thousands of cranes flying southwards.
There are lots of day trips and circular tours and you decide yourself just how far and how fast you want to peddle. For those who want to take a longer well-deserved break from the daily grind, discover the coastal landscape along the long distance paths.
A modern road network gets you there quickly and conveniently. The rail also takes you into every region. There are plenty of bike rental stations and workshops around. Numerous hotels, B&Bs, campsites and guest houses welcome people on cycling holidays. Plus, specialised cycle travel organisers also take care of transportation of luggage.
