Starting in Markkleeberg, passing lake Cospuden, lake Zwenkau, the Elster, through Pegau and back via Groitzsch and Cape Zwenkau.
We experience the lake landscape of the Cospuden and Zwenkau lakes, see the straightened banks of the Elster, roll through the old town of Pegau with its historic town hall and Napoleon’s House, visit the only Iron Mill in Germany in Elstertrebnitz and let the Froschkönigin pamper us with coffee and cake. On the way back we visit the ruins of the Wiprechtsburg in Groitzsch and the newly created Cape Zwenkau.
On our way we stop at the Bistumshöhe observation tower, at the lake Zwenkau, on the Elster, in Pegau with its sights, at the Iron Mill for a tour and at many other worth seeing places that we encounter along the way!
Catering facilities are available at the Froschkönigin and in Cape Zwenkau!
Approx. 60 – 70 km, 6 – 7H, on paths along the lakes, through 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!
