The days are getting longer again. Nature beckons. It's time to finally get out and about in nature again. For example, on the first bike tour of the year. A great destination for this is the island of Rügen. The best starting point: the four-star Hotel Nordperd & Villen Urlaubsinsel Rügen. Thanks to its location on the Baltic Sea and the Nordperd nature reserve, numerous bike routes lead from here through the beautiful island landscape. For example to the southern tip of the peninsula Mönchgut and to the viewpoint Klein Zicker. Host Sven Coldlitz reveals the most beautiful bike route for this start to spring.
Through beautiful natural areas that are still little visited by tourists, we first head to the local beach near Göhren, the first highlight of the route. Few people and a fine sandy beach provide the perfect scenery for photos (and memories!). The route continues to the southern tip. Through a gently rolling landscape, you cycle past paddocks, pastures and fields to the Klein Zicker viewpoint. Here, at the southernmost tip of the peninsula, a magnificent view of the steep coast rewards the cyclists. On the way back, a short detour to the port of Thiessow is worthwhile. There, the pilot tower is another great vantage point with a view of the Baltic Sea. And - not bad either - delicious fish sandwiches! This will fortify you for the return leg of the tour, which is about 24 kilometers long.
Back at the Nordperd & Villas, the spacious spa area awaits tired cyclists. A real treat after a proper day tour! The sauna area, which flows directly into the hotel's large garden, forms the heart of the facility. Here the guests are spoiled with "pure nature" for all senses. Warmth, tranquility and soothing treatments such as the hotel's own herbal salt peeling ensure relaxation and enjoyment. And the panoramic barrel sauna offers a beautiful view of the sea once again at the end.
