Cycling tour „Luusangeln“

Luusangeln – sandy soil and a beautiful landscape.
Do not be put off by the name: “Luusangeln“ is derived from the phrase „lousy Angeln“, a rather unflattering description, stemming from the very inferior quality of soil to be found in the western part of Angeln, and one that certainly does not apply to the area‘s varied and beautiful scenery.

Time after time, in the transition from the gently hilly end morain landscape in the east to the level Geest in the west, splendid views open up over the meadows and fields along the hedge banks that are typical of this landscape. This 28 km long tour leads over asphalted secondary routes and little-used roads.

Hedge banks that enclose fields are called "Knicks". The Knicks, planted with trees and shrubs, are an important habitat for many animals.

6th February
- every year the Oeversee March takes place in remembrance

In February 1864, rearguard fighting took place between the Danish army and the Prussian and Austrian troops at the Sankelmarker See. There were been many fallen and wounded on both sides. Three monuments were built in their memory. The historical tavern in Oeversee was used as a military hospital at that time. The inn looks like a museum, with pictures, weapons and helmets as striking relics of past events.


From the 12th century
- both churches were at that time already on important long distance paths/pilgrimage routes

Find repose, peace and sanctuary – the old St. George Church in Oeversee once acted as a fortress church. On the tower, you can still see the arrow slits. But the altar and the vault paintings are also worth seeing. The St. Peter Church in Sieverstedt, built around 1100 in the Roman architectural style using boulders, is one of the oldest churches in the peninsula of Angeln. There is a lot to discover in this church.
