Tours:

Our Tours through the Neuseenland and the rural surroundings of Leipzig are made for Guests who would like to actively experience the eventful past of the Saxon lowlands. Even today, the landscape is still partly shaped by the dimensions of the former open-cast mines. But nature is recapturing the terrain. Reforested areas and the filling of the open-cast mine waste holes give the landscape a new image and have created a new Saxon lake landscape. Thus, old wounds and a barren lunar landscape have been turned into a new holiday paradise with green shores, inviting sandy beaches and a modern tourist infrastructure.

We would like to take you with us and show you special places, beautiful viewpoints and hidden sights on simple cycle paths and small side roads with little traffic. On the way we will make many stops and tell you interesting facts, humorous anecdotes and also one or two legends. The bicycle is the ideal means of transport for this. You can cover considerable distances relatively quickly and with little effort! You can use almost the entire network of ways, even hidden paths! You protect the environment, you do something good for yourself and your body; and we are quiet – a rare Commodity in our noisy times!
