Berlin to Copenhagen

Denmark, Germany Bike Tours

Cycle in Europe from one capital to another…

  • This wonderful cycling adventure in Germany and Denmark is offered in both directions beginning in Berlin or beginning in Copenhagen. It is your choice. Berlin is a cornucopia of cultural and historical significance. This city has seen its share of war, which one is poignantly reminded of when passing through the remnants of the famous Brandenburg Gate that once fortified the city.

    You will also cycle in the Brandenburg region, encountering a lush landscape that includes Nature Reserve Parks, such as Müritz National Park.

    In Denmark, the route leads from coastal town to coastal town, showcasing thatched cottages as well as villas and grand houses surrounded by wide fields and arable land.

    Copenhagen, the colorful Danish capital, on the island of Sjaelland will be a highlight for sure.

A highlight of this tour is the amazing Müritz-National Park. This inviting park is scattered with more than 130 lakes all surrounded by miles of paths and trails.
The little village of Ankershagen, where the Troy-explorer Schlieman grew up, is located on the your way to Federow. With a little luck you might see an eagle in this area.

You will experience natural peace and relaxation as you bike through the Nature preserve "Nossentiner Heide" (heide=heather). You will also bike through large forests on to Krakow.

DAY 6: Krakow - Güstrow, 19 mi. (30 km)
Your day's end destination, Güstrow, renowned for the late artist, Barlach, isn't too long of a bike ride today. A sightseeing tour in the Old Town and the E. Barlach Atelier upon your arrival is time well spent.

Customer Feedback

  • Jeanne White/David Sampel 3 months ago

    This was our third Tripsite bike tour as well as 20 or more we've taken independently. It was our least favorite of all. It was rated easy but with distances and terrain, should have been moderate. We rode many days for miles without a small town or cafe to rest or get out of the rain in. Hotels were to be 3 to 4 star. At lease two and possibly three were substandard. We stayed in a one star Ibis in Brussels which was nicer. Several of them were outside the cities so wasn't feasible to sightsee after our long days of riding. We were really disappointed by the trip after looking forward to it for some time. Although we like forests, the sameness was monotonous. Copenhagen was a high point on our last day of riding. Enjoyed the other riders and of course German beer.

  • Caroline Thompson 2 years ago

    We have taken European trips put together by Pack and Pedal Europe for 12 years and will continue to do so every summer as long as possible. They are always wonderful. I cannot think of any bad experience. I always like the hotels, and their prices are extremely reasonable, a tremendous value! I highly recommend this company for bike trips.

  • William Kurtz 2 years ago

    I'm not accustomed to riding in a group. It was OK at times, but left little opportunity for solo riding and exploring.

  • Anthony De Costa 2 years ago

    Did not have to think (other than about directions) as everything was provided. All information from Tripsite was very accurate with no extra costing involved.

  • Bill Kurtz 4 years ago

    We had a wonderful experience cycling through the beautiful Meklenberg Lakes region of northern Germany. Our group, from USA, Germany, Belgium and Switzerland, was quite congenial. It was a trip well worth remembering.

  • Allandra Hyndman 5 years ago

    What a great trip this was through the old Eastern Germany and into Denmark. We rode through beech forests, beautiful old towns and tasted all the local food delights. Morning coffee and apple cake became a must. The accommodation was top rate and the daily distances just right to take in some sight seeing as well as peddling. Highly recommended bike trip.
