As you ready your bike for spring, the bicycle buses will be rolling again in Germany’s Leipzig district and elsewhere. Whether you want to go on a day Tour through the Leipzig Neuseenlandschaft and the Dübener Heide or ride along the Saale Cycle Path to the sights of the region: we’ll take you and your bike to the starting point of your choice on selected bus routes and in the S-Bahn and trains of the local public transport system.

Do you want to explore the Leipzig district, Halle or somewhere else in the area by bike but you know that getting your bike out there is often difficult? In the cycling season from April to October, the bike buses will help you get there and back with their special carrier systems and trailers.

In this Collection, we’ve selected six cycling Tours that you can easily reach by bike bus or other cycle-friendly public transport. You can also find important information here: mdv.de/tickets/fahrraeder-sachen-tiere (in German). From the quiet, three-hour Tour to the challenging two-day adventure, you’ll find exactly the route that suits you, and the Tour description will tell you which bike bus you can use.
