Flensburg Fjord Route is a cycle route that crosses the border between Denmark and Germany. It’s absolutely ideal if you wish to experience the landscape around Flensburg Fjord and the towns of Glücksburg, Gråsten, Aabenraa, Sønderborg, Augustenborg, Nordborg and of course Flensburg. The cycle route offers a wealth of attractions – castles and palaces, flower gardens, beautiful countryside, maritime activities and, not least, welcoming and hospitable inhabitants. You can get closer to all this and more on the 307-km long cycle route.
The cycle route runs through the eastern part of the border country, where there’s plenty of opportunity to explore the nature and history of the region. The route runs through the region’s major towns, picturesque villages, past open landscapes, along ridges, through woodland and along the banks of attractive fjords.
The route is divided into six stages, so you can easily shorten or lengthen the route depending on what you wish to see, and where you wish to explore. If you have children with you, there are also many places on the route where you can enjoy attractions that are both fun and educational.
If you cycle all 307 kilometres, you’ll cycle along the banks of Aabenraa Fjord, Alssund and Flensburg Fjord. You’ll cross the Baltic Sea Route and Hærvejen in Denmark and Ochsenweg and Ostseeküsten Radweg in Germany. This means that you can easily extend the route by making detours as you go.
Each stage offers unique experiences: become fully engrossed in wonderful collections of flowers and the region’s spectacular wildlife, or enjoy the chance to feel at first hand the history that has shaped the border country into what it is today.
