Nature safari around Hemmelsdorfer See (approx. 25 km)

The Hemmelsdorfer See is the perfect recreation area. Cycle tours around the lake are a really special holiday experience and the recreation activities on the lake are simply fantastic.

This is a half-day tour:

You set off from the Baggersand car park across the Teutendorfer Weg towards Warnsdorf. In Warnsdorf turn right to Häven. In Häven turn left at the “Kleinkunstkate”. At the river Aalbek, the link to the sea, you'll find the remains of Gosevelde castle. Close by, you can enjoy a unique view from the Hermann-Löns-Blick. The route then continues through the floodplain to Hemmelsdorf and towards Ratekau.

Then later turn left at the forest car park. This brings you back to the lake. At the Offendorf swimming area you can jump straight from your bike into the lake! An idyllic lakeside path takes you on to Kreuzkamp. In Warnsdorf you come full circle back to the Hemmelsdorfer See. You should definitely take the time here to visit "Karls Erlebnis-Hof" estate west of Warnsdorf.
