On a Spreewald cycle tour, most people will think of tours that take you past the famous Spreewald gherkins. But this route takes you to the wild origins of the Spreewald forest with its magnificent water labyrinth of the natural, branching waterways of the Spree. You'll see postmen on yellow barges which are just as much part of this area as the watery meadows and moors and their unique flora and fauna. Cottbus is the cultural centre of the Sorbian minority. Baroque town houses, the English-style Branitz Park, Germany's oldest Art Nouveau film theatre and the town houses of the migrant French Huguenots all shape the character of this town.

Day 1: Individual arrival in Cottbus, excursion to Spremberg Lake, approx. 60 km

Arrive, steady, go! You cycle via the riding and leisure centre Kutzeburger Mühle to the big Spremberg Lake. A bit further on eastwards and you get to Bagenz Pond. Fancy a break at the beach and a dip into the water? Then it's time to back through Branitz Park. This country park designed by Prince Pückler to the traditional English style

Day 2: Cottbus – Lübben, approx. 65 km

Your destination today is the huge Peitzer Pond Landscape, which is home to many plants and carp that are bred there. Then the route takes you out of the woods, through Dissen - known for its storks - and into the green countryside through Burg to Straupitz. It is there that you'll find Europe's last functioning three-in-one mill which produces linseed oil! Next you pedal off to Lübben, the main town here in Spreewald.

Day 3: Lübben – Cottbus, approx. 50 km, individual departure or extension of stay

The 300 natural waterways course through the green fields and meadows like blue and white shimmering threads. You get to Lehde via Lübbenau. The village is pervaded by a fairytale-like water labyrinth - the real streets in Spreewald. Via the fishing village of Leipe, you cycle to Burg and then follow quiet roads back to Cottbus. Your luggage awaits you here and you can make your way back home. If you don't want to leave just yet we would be happy to extend your Spreewald cycle tour in Cottbus.
