Starting at Markkleeberg, visiting Markkleeberger lake, Störmthaler lake, Hainer lake, Kahnsdorfer lake, reservoir Rötha, Zwenkauer lake and Cospudener lake.
We see the Canoe Park at Markkleeberger lake and the floating Church Vineta in the middle of the Störmthaler lake, roll through the newly built holiday Resorts at Hainer & Kahnsdorfer lakes, enjoy the peace and silence at the Rötha reservoir and observe the change of the shore landscapes at Zwenkauer lake in contrast to the completed renaturalisation at Cospudener lake.
We make several stops en route, for instance at the Artists’ Village Dreiskau-Muckern, at the Seehaus Leipzig with its modern, open juvenile detention centre, at the Bistumshöhe with it’s observation tower, and at many other worth seeing places that we encounter along the way!
Catering facilities are available in Kahnsdorf and at the Bistumshöhe!
Approx. 50 – 60 km, 4 – 5H, on paths along the lakes, across fields and on dedicated cycling routes. Flat.
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!
