Stage description

This is a very pretty and highly varied stage. From Mölln, the E1 heads south along the banks of three lakes: Schmalsee, Lüttauer See and Drüsensee, before reaching the picturesque Hellbachtal. The Hellbach valley, located in the nature protection area of the same name, is one of the highlights of the stage. The last few kilometres of the stage passes largely through commercial woodland. Just before Güster, the E6 trail follows its own course leaving the E1 and E9 and heading south towards Lauenburg and the River Elbe. Just before the end of the stage the path crosses the Elbe-Lübeck canal.
