One way, two rivers, three countries

Landscape diversity

Nature lovers can also experience a multitude of scenic highlights, because the route leads directly from the heights of the Zittau Mountains with their sandstone formations, past Lake Berzdorf to the Rhodendron Park in Kromlau. The highlights of the route are the Muskau Geopark and the Fürst-Pückler-Park Bad Muskau, which are known as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

From the mountain to the lake

The Oder-Neisse cycle path begins at the source of the Neisse in the Czech town of Nová Ves and leads along the river in eastern Upper Lusatia. He crosses the cities of Zittau, Görlitz and Bad Muskau. With their historical beauty, these cities invite you to take a break.

Craft brewing from Görlitz

Landskron Brau-Manufaktur, a gem that survived two world wars and 40 years of East Germany. Today, Landskron is Germany's largest brewery and the most important beer brand, brewing naturally matured master beers in a high-quality range of varieties using the art of craft brewing. Once in Görlitz, you should not miss out on a guided tour of the Landskron Kulturbrauerei, which can be perfectly integrated into the cycle tour .

If you have time, stay a little longer and review your experiences in the visitor center.

Along the Neisse up to the Oder

On the drive along the eastern border of Germany, which is naturally marked by the rivers Neisse and Oder, the blue glittering surface of the water, green overgrown Neisse meadows, refreshing rustling pine forests and sunny yellow rapeseed fields ensure a colorful enjoyment of nature. At the same time, cyclists travel a route full of history. From the source of the Neiße at the southernmost point of the tour in Nová Ves (CZ), it goes to Zittau, with its baroque town houses, the pretty town hall and the mighty salt house at the foot of the Zittau Mountains Nature Park. The city is best known for the Lenten towels, which amaze thousands of visitors every year. They are part of the trinational tourist route Via Sacra, which also includes the St. Marienthal Monastery in Ostritz. The stations of the Via Sacra promise calm and reflection. The wheels roll down the river to Görlitz - the city that became rich as a trading hub and today enchants city tourists with a lovingly restored old town and outstanding buildings such as the old town bridge, St. Peter's Church, the Holy Sepulcher or the Kaisertrutz.

Görlitz and Zittau once united, together with Bautzen, Kamenz, Löbau and Lauban (Lubań /PL), to form the Upper Lusatian Six Cities League. This protective alliance was founded in Löbau in 1346 and existed for almost half a millennium. Families can treat themselves to a break from cycling with the leisure activities in Oberlausitz. Not far from the Oder-Neisse cycle path, narrow-gauge railways, zoos, indoor and outdoor play parks and moving water worlds invite you to enjoy family fun. The last stop on the way in Saxony, the Fürst-Pückler-Park Bad Muskau, was even awarded the title of World Heritage Site by UNESCO for the landscape park fantasy of Prince Pückler. About 20 kilometers north of Guben in Brandenburg, the Neisse flows into the Oder near Ratzdorf. From here it is a good 400 kilometers with many other attractions to the island of Usedom.
