This stage leads along Schleswig-Holstein's largest nature reserve through a unique world of flora and fauna.
Starting in Husum, the journey takes you via Schobüll, Halebüll and Wobbenbüll to the Nordstrand peninsula, which is surrounded by the North Sea on three sides. Besides the well-known Frisian customs, such as ring riding, the Rummelpottlaufen (New Year's Eve custom for children) and the Biikebrennen (a Frisian fire festival celebrating the welcome end of winter), Nordstrand is also home to the famous national drink "Pharisäer". This is sweetened coffee with a dash of rum and a topping of stiffly whipped cream - a well-known hot drink throughout North Frisia.

Continuing northwards, the North Sea Cycle Route leads through the Beltringharder Koog nature reserve - directly along the North Sea. This is the largest nature reserve in Schleswig-Holstein on the mainland and a paradise for nature lovers. A unique flora and fauna has developed in the salt and freshwater areas, attracting over 100,000 resting waders and waterfowl. It is regarded as one of the most richly populated nature reserves in Germany when it comes to birds.
It's not far to the stage destination of Dagebüll by way of the Schlüttsiel ferry harbour. The bathing huts on the green beach in Dagebüll are a particularly striking feature and can be seen from afar in all colours. Ferries to the islands of Föhr and Amrum leave from the harbour.

The Hamburger Hallig can be spotted a few kilometres beyond the Beltringharder Koog with views of the North Sea. It lies in the heart of the Wadden Sea UNESCO World Heritage Site and is approx. 4 kilometres from the mainland. Anyone interested in visiting this special place can easily embark on a short detour by bike from the North Sea Cycle Route. A restaurant is enthroned as a solitary building on the small island, providing an opportunity to take a short breather and stop for a refreshment break in the midst of pure nature.
