West to East route

I will be travelling through Germany to the Baltic states from mid-April to mid-May or thereabouts. Attached is a pic of 3 possible routes - the middle one I will probably save for the homeward leg as I've sort of miscalculated and given myself 36 days to get from Hook of Holland to Ruska Wies, but only 13 to get from Klaipeda to Hook!!

So, given that it's last fortnight in April and 3 weeks in May, which would be the best area to explore - the northern or the southern section? Given that most of it will be new to me either way.

We spent a few weeks up there seven or eight years ago. We have friends at Travemunde, where there's a nice stellplatz with an coastal walk adjacent. It rains quite a bit too, so it's just like home. Isn't that nice?

You will be in Germany when I will probably be in France and England Jean, wont be bumping into each other this time.

I will be interested to hear how you find the top route as we have never been there even though its not a million miles away.

I'm Jan
We learn something new every day.

Not sure about the rain Alan! But they do say there's no such thing as bad weather, just bad gear.

You'll be right beside Besskow then. It's a very nice small town in the river Spree. There are two aires, one in an industrial estate which has little to recommend it and the other at the Marina on the river which is very pleasant. We spent a couple of months there maybe three years ago. The whole area along the river, which opens out into numerous lakes and is lovely still mostly unspoiled. It's very reminiscent of Fermanagh except the architecture mostly varies between old and ancient. There are some very good restaurants.

The area does not attract much tourism from far away and practically none from outside Germany. We had definitely intended going back there some day and may well still do.
