From Markkleeberg via the Markkleeberg lake, the Störmthal lake, through the Oberholz and Belgershain to the Nimbschen monastery and the Ship Mill in Grimma. Back via Pomßen and the Güldengossa castle.
We experience the lake landscape of lake Markleeberg and lake Störmthal, enjoy the peace and Silence in the Oberholz, see the historic castle in Belgershain, the Nimbschen monastery and the Ship Mill on the Mulde river. On the way back we will be impressed by the flood gates in Grimma and we stop briefly at the castle in Güldengossa.
We stop at the lakes, at the castle in Belgershain, the Nimbschen Mmonastery, the Ship Mill, in the old town of Grimma, at Güldengossa castle and at many other worth seeing places that we encounter along the way!

Approx. 70 km, 7-8H, on paths along the lakes, through fields and forests, on dedicated cycling Routes as well as small roads. Flat with some short uphills.
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!
