Despite always being close to a number of towns – some of which have to be traversed – this stage actually takes in some attractive scenery. One of the highlights is the Sielbektal between Ratekau and Kreuzkamp.
Leaving Lübeck there is a tunnel under the River Trave, the Herrentunnel. Pedstrians are not allowed to walk through this tunnel but there is a shuttle bus (you'll find it behind the fence) to take you through to the other side (more information).
Through the tunnel, there is an alternative route that takes you through Lübeck's city centre (marked in blue on the map, available as a GPS Track).
In Klein Grönau, you can take a bus north back to Lübeck or heading south to Ratzeburg and Mölln. Click here for the timetable.

*Real prices can differ. Prices are based on a single person in the lowest available category (a small tent on a camping site).
In Ratekau a short detour to the Vicelinkirche is worthwhile. It is one of the best preserved fieldstone churches/fortified churches from the 12th century in eastern Holstein.
