The stage begins at the Wellingdorf ferry terminal. Unfortunately it is only possible to cross from the Reventlou jetty to the other side of the Kieler Förde (Kiel Fjord) on weekdays.
After passing through the Wellingdorf centre, the path follows unpaved paths along the Schwentine river. The path then leaves the river heading up a hill on dirt roads towards Flüggendorf and then on forest trails back to the river, which has cut deeply into the landscape at this point. Some steep ascents and descents have to be overcome here before you reach the Schwentinental Game Park near Raisdorf with its llamas, wild boars and aviaries.
The trail continues along the course of the Schwentine, following pleasant hiking trails southwards through the gently rolling countryside. The Preetz Monastery marks the destination of this short stage. The path continues into the pedestrian zone to the cobbler's monument on the market square.
