Welcome to the North Sea
With a distance of around 6,000 km, the North Sea Cycle Route is the longest signposted cycle route in the world. It leads through the countries of Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Scotland, England, Belgium and the Netherlands.
In Schleswig-Holstein, the North Sea Cycle Route leads from the Danish border to Hamburg. Cyclists can expect to find incomparable nature experiences on their tour through North Friesland and Dithmarschen. Enjoy the beauty of the Schleswig-Holstein Wadden Sea national park. The North Sea with its tides, green dykes, grazing sheep, sand dunes and meadow landscapes characterise the west coast. The route leads past sand and grass beaches, colourful lighthouses and picturesque villages with typical thatched rooves. Use the opportunity to take an excursion to the islands and Halligen, some of which can be easily circled.
