From Kiel in Germany to Le Havre in France

Hi guys!

Any particular road I just HAVE to see on my way from Germany to France? Any beautiful sights/stretches or beautiful camping sites along the way? Viewpoints etc?

Thanks in advance!

Ghent

Ghent (Gent) in Belgium?

An article on CNN from three weeks ago:

And Lonely Planet’s top 10 cities for 2011 ranks Gent at nr. 7: http://www.lonelyplanet.com/belgium/...articles/76165

The North Sea Cycle Route will take you most of the way. It is fairly well signposted and you can get the maps in booklet form for Germany and a set for Netherlands. Campsites are all marked.
There are some good ferry routes to the islands. Harlingen to Vlieland, then over to Texel and ferry to Del Helder is a good detour. Vleiland is a car-free island with a nice campsite signposted just inland from the coastal road, a few km S of Vlieland town.
Texel has a pretty main town and a farmyard campsite close to the main ferry terminal but you have to ask around, it is not well signposted. The other campsites are huge commercial tourist ones.
