Get out of everyday life and into nature. This paradise for cyclists is just a stone's throw away from Berlin. Idyllic landscapes in Oderbruch, small towns with great history and, of course, hundreds of lakes await you in the Lakeland Oder-Spree. The infrastructure is ideally set up for cyclists. For this reason, the Seenland Oder-Spree has the very special honor of calling itself a ADFC-RadReiseRegion.

Explore the glorious landscape formed by the glacier between Berlin and the Oder on ten different routes. Each stage varies in length from 20 to 45 miles (30 and 70 kilometers) and varyies in difficulty, but you can expect no bigger bigger gradients than the gently rolling Brandenburg hills. All of the routes can be easily reached from Berlin by train, which is why they are all ideal for a day trip. The tours are dedicated to different topics, so you will find what you are looking for whether you are a nature lover, Badenixe or culture friend.

No matter if you have a weakness for smoked fish or if you are interested in ornithology you will enjoy the "Eagle meets Zander" route where you can meet varied wildlife from eels to zanders and eagles to siskins. Here, you will cycling between Erkner and Fürstenwalde following the trail of the Ice Age. Here, the last ice age left a beautiful and varied landscape. On the Schwielochsee, you will circle the largest natural lake in Brandenburg. On the petting tour you will discover deer, ponies, deer and geese. The route "In the land of canyons and gorges" by the Märkische Switzerland is also special. On the boat lift route, you will ride from Niederfinow to the gigantic ship lift and on to the Oder. One route is also dedicated to the Oderbruch, the inland delta on the border between Germany and Poland. On the route of the monks, on the other hand, you will follow in the footsteps of the ancient monks from the monastery of Neuzelle. You will discover magnificent castles, old estates and enchanting parks on the "Schloss und Parkerlebnis" tour. And, where the Oderbruchbahn once transported beets and schnapps, now lies another great cycle path.

As you can see, you will not be bored in the ADFC RadReiseRegion Seenland Oder-Spree. Take your bike – or just rent one when you arrive – pack your bathing suit and your good mood and explore the most water rich region in Brandenburg.
