So close, so beautiful - in northeastern Europe, where diversity and contrasts lie close together, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia together form the Baltic States. Unique nature, pulsating cities and a wealth of historical sights characterise the three neighbouring countries of the Baltic Sea states. Explore the picturesquely beautiful old towns and let yourself be inspired by fascinating natural landscapes and coastal strips. On this trip you will be rewarded with fairytale landscapes, untouched nature as you can hardly find it in Western Europe and picturesque cities.
The capitals of the three Baltic states, Villnius, Riga and Tallinn, are not on the UNESCO World Heritage List for nothing!
Visit the new Europe with us! We promise: whoever sets out on this journey will be rewarded with fairytale landscapes, untouched nature as you can hardly find it in Western Europe and picturesque cities. The capitals of the three Baltic states are not listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List for nothing!
Far away from the cities we have to pass through countless fragrant forests, hilly landscapes with the finest curves, lonely straights through national parks and routes along the beautiful Baltic Sea coast, which invite us to ride a motorbike!
Of course, during such a round trip through the Baltic Sea republics, a ramble through Masuria, the Curonian Spit with its unique sand dunes, the picturesquely situated water castle Trakai and the Mountain of the Crosses must not be missed. This trip combines a portion of culture with motorcycle travel.
Day 1: Individual arrival to our starting hotel in Leipzig
Check In until 18:00; tour introduction and getting to know each other at a dinner together.
Day 2: From Leipzig to Posen (Poland) approx. 400km
On the way you can see the largest Jesus statue in the world in the small Polish town of Swiebodzin (Schwiebus). The 33m high statue of the Son of God is 3m taller than the famous figure in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. The crown alone is 2m high.
The building was planned and implemented by the local priest Zawadzki, who made Swiebodzin a place of pilgrimage for all believers.
Day 3: From Poznan to Mrągowo - Sensburg (Poland) approx. 440km
After breakfast we start further in eastern direction, our today's tour destination is Mragowo - Sensburg. This lies in the Masurian territory. Along the first Masurian lakes on winding, lonely roads we reach Sensburg, where we stay two nights in our hotel.
Day 4: Round tour through the Masuria to the Heiligelinde and to the Wolfsschanze incl. guided tour approx. 160km
Święta Lipka (German Heiligelinde) is a village in the Polish voivodship Ermland-Masuren. Święta Lipka is one of the most famous Polish Marian pilgrimage sites and is popular with pilgrims and tourists alike.
The baroque pilgrimage church of Heiligelinde was built by Jesuits in the village, which was East Prussian until 1945. The basilica with cloister and monastery is one of the most important Baroque monuments in northern Poland. The Pope raised her to the rank of Basilica minor in 1983.
Wolf's Lair: Wolf's Lair was the camouflage name for a military situation centre of the command staff of the German Wehrmacht and one of the Führer's headquarters during the Second World War near Rastenburg near the village of Görlitz in East Prussia, in today's Poland.
Day 5: Ride from Mragowo to Vilniuis (Lithuania) approx. 350km
Across the Masurian Lake District we tour further east.
On the way to Vilnius we also make a detour to the Trakai moated castle. The water castle of Trakai is probably one of the most visited and photographed sights in the entire Baltic region.
The late medieval castle complex from the 14th century is picturesquely situated in the middle of the surrounding lake landscape, embedded in a magnificent natural ensemble.
In the late afternoon we arrive in Vilnius, where we move into Quertier for the next 2 days.
Day 6: City tour in Vilnius
After breakfast we start for a city tour. The rest of the day is free. Either simply to stroll in the old town or a small tour in the surroundings of Vilnius.
Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania, is known for its Baroque architecture, which is particularly evident in the medieval old town. However, the buildings on these streets, some of which are cobbled, reflect different styles and times - from the neoclassical cathedral of St. Stanislaus to the Gothic church of St. Anna. The Gate of Dawn from the 16th century, which houses an icon of the Virgin Mary, once offered access to the city.
Day 7: Vilnius to Riga (Latvia) approx. 300 km
After breakfast we head for Riga. According to scientists from 1989, we are passing by the geographical centre of Europe. We continue to the border crossing to Latvia and spend the night for 2 nights in a hotel in the city centre.
Day 8: City tour Riga
After breakfast we start for a city tour with a local guide.
Riga, the capital of Latvia, lies at the mouth of the Düna into the Baltic Sea. It is considered a cultural centre and has many museums and concert halls. The town is also known for its wooden buildings, Art Nouveau architecture and medieval old town. The latter is pedestrian-only and includes numerous shops and restaurants. Here is also the bustling Livu Square with its bars and nightclubs.
Day 9: Riga to Tallinn (Estonia) approx. 320 km
Today we continue in a northern direction along the Baltic Sea. We tour in the direction of Estonia, the geographically highest Baltic country. Estonia is the smallest of the three Baltic states but has a lot to offer. Along the picturesque west coast we tour north and arrive in the afternoon in the capital Tallinn. The medieval old town is world famous. Here we move into our hotel for the next two nights.
Day 10: Guided city tour in Tallinn
Tallinn, the capital of Estonia, lies on the Baltic Sea and is the cultural centre of the country. The old town, surrounded by a city wall and cobblestone streets, with numerous cafés and shops, and the defence tower Kiek in de Kök from the 15th century are well known. The historic town hall square of Tallinn is dominated by the Gothic town hall with a 64 m high tower. The Nikolaikirche is a 13th century landmark.
A special dinner: In a medieval restaurant we can enjoy delicious dishes and herbal drinks, prepared by the master chefs as in the days of the Hanseatic League.
Day 11: Tallinn - Riga approx. 350km
After breakfast we head back towards Riga.
Overnight stay in a hotel near the city.
Day 12: Riga via Klaipeda to the Curonian Spit approx. 360 km
We'll stop at the Mountain of the Crosses. Around a statue of Our Lady there are thousands of crosses - small and large, simple and richly decorated, wooden or metal. In this Lithuanian place of pilgrimage, the crosses symbolize the memories and hopes of Lithuanians.
Klaipėda is a port city in Lithuania located where the Baltic Sea meets the Danė river. In the old town there are half-timbered houses built in the 18th century in the German style. The Theaterplatz, the city's most important meeting place, is home to the neoclassical drama theatre. The sculpture of Taravos Anikė from 1912 is also on the square and is a tribute to a poet of the city. The Lithuanian Maritime Museum on the waterfront includes dolphin shows and maritime exhibits in a 19th century fortress.
The Curonian Spit is a 98 km long peninsula on the north coast of Sambia. It begins in Lesnoi and ends at Memel Low. Since 1945 the northern 52 km belong to Lithuania and the southern 46 km to the Russian oblast Kaliningrad.
Endless sand dunes, fragrant pine forests and golden beaches await you here. The nature on the spit is unique.
Overnight stay on the Curonian Spit.
Day 13: Curonian Spit - Klaipeda - Ferry passage approx. 50km
Ride on the Curonian Spit to the Russian border. Afterwards we go to the ferry Klaipeda - Kiel
14 Day: Ferry passage - Kiel
A last common breakfast we let our journey once again pass in review. In the afternoon we reach Kiel and start our individual journey home.
