Across Meadows, through Forests and to the Water

Through fields and on tree-lined streets, you can explore the large and small lakes, the different forest- and wetlands. You can follow the flowing waters and canals or have a look at the wisent enclosure near Fredeburg. The long-distance bicycle route "Alte Salzstraße" takes you on a medieval tour, while the "Via Scandinavica" is part of St. James' Way.
The programme of the tourism centre "erlebnisreich" in Mölln offers many themed round tours for cyclists, among them the ice age tour, the lake bike tour, the monument tour, or the border tour. They are lined with "Handy Guide" stations, where you can call information on your mobile phone.
