To cycle through Brandenburg’s autumn, you don't have to buy Fontane's book "Rambling through Brandenburg", this Collection will guide you through six beautiful routes. So grab your bike and discover the countryside around Berlin like the poet himself once did.

In autumn the Spreewald shows its magical side – which you can wonderfully experience on the Spreeradweg from Cottbus via Peitz, Burg and Lübbenau to Lübben. On the "Königstour im Oderbruch" the easternmost part of Brandenburg reveals its rough charm under a sweeping sky. In Havelland there is an enchanting place dedicated to the delicious pear: Ribbeck! The route "Mit Ribbecks Birne auf Du & Du" (Discover Ribbeck's Pear) you can also discover traces of the legendary pear tree from Fontane's poem.

Cultural enjoyment awaits you on the route around Potsdam's Havel lakes. Not only Fontane, but also Albert Einstein, was very impressed by this little corner of the world. The cycle route to the historic city centres between Neuruppin and Wittstock (Dosse) where the State Garden Show is held until 6 October, takes you past the beautiful Kyritz chain of lakes.

The cycle route around Ruppiner See runs around Brandenburg's longest lake and offers beautiful views of the water again and again! Tip: plan extra time for the Fontane town of Neuruppin – there's plenty to discover here. All routes are independent of each other as daily stages and are well connected to the regional rail network so that you can arrive and depart stress-free.

    Who is on the 98-kilometer "King's Tour" on the eastern edge of Brandenburg on the road, will be fascinated by the flat landscape under the wide sky. The name goes back to the "Old Fritz", who let the former wetland dry. In Neutrebbin and Letschin remind monuments to the Prussian king.
