You can find more information and up-to-date maps for all the trails in the region at the Tourist Information Offices

The Flounder route

This route leads you the Holstein's typical hedgerow countryside through meadows, fields and shady copses. You will skirt the nature sanctuaries adjoining the former fishing village until finally you have the sea before you. A large proportion of the route takes you along the coast with a view of the Baltic Sea. The route owes its name to the unique sea platform over the sea which you will see on the last third of the route.

For beginners or as a training route for professionals - this 7.1 kilometre route has much to offer in sporting terms but also for the eye.
