If you don’t feel like cycling, stay aboard the ship!
It is a special pleasure to experience the Mecklenburg Lake District by boat and bike. The glaciers of the last Ice Age created fascinating landscape of glittering lakes and deep forests. Slavs and Germans founded a number of small villages and towns, which are definitely worth seeing. Nature conservation areas alternate with beautiful lakes, perfect for swimming. This bike tour through the Mecklenburg Lake District is also suitable for less experienced cyclists. Here you can find details about your boat, the MS Gretha van Holland.
