Stage description

The stage actually starts at the 'Am Torfmoor' bus stop in Groß Grönau. The path leads directly passed Lübeck airport until Blankensee, which can be seen close by. After a short walk through the woods, there is a somewhat unattractive section on or alongside roads until it crosses the Elbe-Lübeck Canal in Krummesse. From here on, the stage starts to gain in appeal. The E1 follows the canal south until Klein-Berkenthin, where the path crosses the canal, taking in the beautiful Maria Magdalena Church and its grounds.

The trail follows gently rolling hills across fields and through some woods passed Klein Disnack to Buchholz, where a little pontoon jutting out in the lake offers a wonderful opportunity to sit and take a break. The is the Ratzeburger See, which the path follows until the city of Ratzeburg. The impressive cathedral, the Ratzeburger Dom is the symbol of the town and can be easily seen across the lake.

The E1, E6 and E9 long-distance paths all follow the course of this stage.
