The Great Spreewald Tour offers cycling fun in a unique natural and cultural landscape. Moderate daily stages allow you to get to know the country and its people extensively.

The tourist centers of Lübbenau, Lübben, Burg and the lagoon village of Lehde await you along the cucumber cycle path. Quaint inns invite you to stop off along the way and, above all, try the delicious Spreewald gherkin, which gave the cycle path its name.

grüne Karte mit gelben und weißen Punkten von Cottbus über Burg, Lübbenau, Lübben, Schlepzig und Krausnick

On their own. Branitz Park, a masterpiece of garden art created by Prince von Pückler, and Branitz Castle invite you on a tour of discovery. End the evening in a cozy restaurant in the old town.

Overnight place: Cottbus

Burg, the gateway to the Oberspreewald, can be reached quickly. A short detour to the White Stork Center in Vetschau is well worth it. Your path continues to Lehde, the village in the Spreewald, which still radiates its original character today. Here the barge is still the most important means of transport. A network of countless flows accompanies you to Lübbenau.

 

Overnight place: Lübbenau or the surrounding area

You leave Lübbenau, not without enjoying the colorful hustle and bustle of the market at one of the ferry ports. When you arrive in Lübben in the Unterspreewald, you have to decide whether you want to go via Golßen or the circular route across Lake Köthener. A detour to Tropical Island (on your own) is worthwhile.

 

Overnight place: Krausnick or Schlepzig

The Neuendorfer and Groß Leuthener lakes offer undisturbed bathing fun before you reach the most beautiful village in the Lower Spreewald today. Many sights await you in Schlepzig, such as the farmer's museum (under your own management), the private brewery, the Spreewald information center and some nice places to stop for refreshments. Through a beautiful pond landscape, you return to Lübben.

Overnight place: Lübben or surroundings

If you want, you can swap your bike for a paddle boat (own management) in the morning to see the Spreewald from a different perspective for an hour or two. Afterwards you cycle to Burg. You should definitely visit the Schinkel Church and the Dutch Mill in Straupitz.

Overnight place: Castle

Cycle today on the old Spreewaldbahn route. You will reach the stork village of Dissen with its interesting local history museum. Experience a successful renaturation of the river between Dissen and Maiberg. The new Spree flood plain is the habitat of many new plant and animal species and will inspire you. Then you reach the old fortress town of Peitz and cycle through the Peitz ponds. Before you reach Cottbus, you should take a look at the future "Baltic Sea", which is being created from a former lignite opencast mine.

 

Overnight place: Cottbus

After breakfast, you will travel home on your own or with an extension.

Overnight place: Cottbus (departure)

  • 6 nights in the booked category, including breakfast
  • Luggage transfer from hotel to hotel (9am-18pm)
  • 7 days service hotline
  • 1x per room travel documents with maps/route descriptions for the tour
  • Admission to the Lehde cucumber museum with tasting

Outstanding

Our Spreewald tour was a complete success. The "Mecklenburger Radtour" was perfectly organized in advance. Information material, travel documents and room bookings were all excellent. Optimal organization on site. Thanks to Mr. Henning and the team from Cottbus for top bikes, tips and reliable luggage transport. There is nothing to complain about!!!!!

Beautiful days on the cucumber cycle path

It was a very nice bike ride on the cucumber cycle path. Unfortunately waren some bridge closures not listed in the description. Should be improved. We have informed the MA Radtransport about this. Some routes did not match the tour signs either. Regards U. Reese

Large Spreewald cycle tour cucumber cycle path

Have experienced a varied tour in the best cycling weather (not too warm). 90% good signage.
-Helmut Zahn


What else we wanted to say

All in all, the bike tour will be an unforgettable experience for us, which has motivated us to definitely go on holiday in the Spreewald again. Most of the accommodations surprised us positively, with the Hotel Nordic in Lübbenau being particularly noteworthy. The route description you provided inspired us during the preliminary study, but did not always do justice to the challenges in practice. Although we 4 not completely stupid adults waren, we had to accept at least one detour every day, since the route was not always clear. We would have liked more information and assistance on ambiguous or hidden signage. This was particularly serious on the mountain stage, which was very tough and not suitable for participants with heart problems. On the one hand, there was no indication of the considerable strain, on the other hand, the four of us couldn't agree on what the official alternative would have been. Nevertheless, the overall enthusiastic impression of the natural spectacle "Spreewald" remains and that we everywhere praise both the Spreewald cuisine and the Spreewald beers. Thank you for letting us enjoy this offer. Kind regards from Hamburg Barbara and Thomas Klimpel

Great Spreewald tour

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you very much for the pleasant care. The fact that we were able to start the trip for one day is also due to their accommodating continued success and few complaints Hans and Theres Gerber CH-5413 Birmenstorf AG

Angels on the Cucumber Cycle Path

Hello, from 18.5.-23.5.2015 we followed the cucumber cycle path this year. 1. Luggage transport: The luggage transport went smoothly and quickly, i.e. perfectly. We didn't even have to wait for our luggage at the destination hotel. 2. Bike quality: We came with our own bikes. 3. Travel Documents: You waren complete, well put together and very helpful. I would have liked to have had the route information as a file for my navigation device. I then had to create this file myself. 4. Travel support: Ultimately, the support only referred to the timely sending of the documents. But nothing more was needed. 5. Consultation: There was no consultation in this sense. 6. Accommodations: Unfortunately, I have to express my displeasure here. We sometimes had the impression that cyclists were unfortunately assigned unattractive rooms because they continued their journey the next day. In Krausnick we had a ground floor room right by the parking lot, the bike stand right in front of the window, the employees' smoking corner right next to it and the back entrance wasn't far away either. To compensate, there was no bottled water in the hotel room either, which was somewhat amusing since there is no grocery store in Krausnick itself. Although we spent our last night in a panorama suite in Cottbus, as the hotel was occupied by many bus tour groups. One point that bothered me massively about the accommodations was that there was no bicycle service. There was no bucket with sponge and soap, no place for small repairs and none of the hotels had provided a decent air pump. The quality standards still need to be worked on here. 7. Environment and bike paths: The route took us through a natural area with a lush fauna and flora. The cycle road network was in very good condition and is second to none. Rarely have we found such great cycle paths. Conclusion: Except for small things, it was a great and successful cycling holiday.

Great Spreewald Tour SPR-04_13

A beautiful week in a diverse nature. The card was good.
- Lisa Christiansen


Nice tour in the Spreewald

The Spreewald tour is our 3rd trip with the Mecklenburger Radtour. We really enjoyed the bike tour. The support provided by Mr. Henning was excellent, very helpful and friendly beforehand and during the tour. The accommodation was fine. The Hotel Spreebick in Lübben was just being built and the rooms waren a bit tight. At the Landhotel Krausnick, the staff in the restaurant seemed a bit overwhelmed. The maintenance at the Hotel Nordic in Lübbenau was exceptionally friendly and good. We will die Mecklenburger Recommend Raddtour and certainly book a trip with you again.
- Hubert Willecke


Big thank you

Thank you for being available, for planning the trip at short notice and the tour was super beautiful.

Anonymous review

Luggage transfer from 10.00 a.m. would be a little more relaxed in the morning... The hotels waren partly a little outside the center (up to 3 km), probably depends on the chosen category. But if possible, accommodation in a central location would be better...
