To mark UNESCO World Heritage Day on June 2, 2024, we would like to take you on a virtual bike tour along the North Sea and Baltic Sea in Germany, passing numerous World Heritage Sites along the way. Perhaps the virtual journey will inspire you to take a real bike tour along the beautiful German coast! 😊

The six-day cycling tour starts in the quaint village of Dangast on the Wadden Sea and continues via Bremen (77km) and Hamburg (111km) to Lübeck (68km), then to Timmendorfer Strand (18km) and Wismar (60km). From there, the route continues along the Baltic coast to Rostock (62km), Stralsund (80km) and ends in Sassnitz on the island of Rügen (55km).

And if you would like to find out even more about Germany's 52 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the ARD Mediathek is offering documentaries about many of them (in German).
