From the German port of Rostock on the Baltic Sea coast, the EuroVelo 7 follows the Berlin-Copenhagen Cycle Route. Passing through the state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania it takes the route south towards the Mecklenburg Lakes. The towns of Neustrelitz and Güstrow offer cultural attractions on the way. It then follows the Havel River and the towns of Oranienburg and Fürstenberg/Havel and the tranquil expanse of the state of Brandenburg towards Berlin. After Berlin, the route eventually connects to the Elbe Cycle Route which leads through Dresden, and then takes you all the way to the Czech border.
