The Beltquerung was first accomplished on 25 July 1949 by Karl-Heinz Rauert who swam from his hometown of Fehmarn to Denmark, accompanied by a boat captain, his mate and his father.


The traditional start is on the beach in Rødby, Denmark with the finish on the coast of the island of Fehmarn in Germany, specifically the beach of Gammendorf on Fehmarn. The certified escort pilot is Wolfgang Schlosser of Fehmarn-Lemkenhafen.
