Untouched nature and shimmering lakes, historical sites and finely-renovated manor houses – Brandenburg is a wonderful destination for a relaxing cycling holiday. On your bike, you glide along well-maintained cycle paths through the peaceful countryside, along river banks and through picturesque lake landscapes. There are thousands of kilometres of cycle paths in the countryside around Berlin – to help you navigate them, we’ve put together eight cycle tours through the region for you.

Our routes take you out into the fabulously beautiful woods and hilly landscape of the Uckermark, into the enchanted forests of the Spreewald, to beautiful fishing towns in the Oder-Spree lake district and to the ancient royal seat of Potsdam with its palaces and gardens. With its old manor houses, medieval villages and rich Prussian history, Brandenburg offers you an exciting mix of nature and culture. You can easily spend a longer time in one area and get to know Brandenburg at your own pace.

The traditional cuisine is original, tasty, and healthy. Thanks to the forests and lakes, you can find excellent fish and hearty game dishes, but don’t forget the world-famous Spreewald gherkins too. Potatoes have also been an integral part of Brandenburg cuisine ever since Frederick the Great passed a decree that citizens must grow them. Potatoes are a great cycling snack to keep you energised during your ride.

You can easily reach Berlin from across Europe, for example a night train runs from Zurich to Berlin. Once in the capital, you can conveniently take regional trains throughout Brandenburg. During your adventure, you can choose from a range of accommodation such as quiet campsites or wellness hotels. Don’t forget to pack your swimsuit as you will have many opportunities to go for a swim. Although in Brandenburg, bathing in your birthday suit is quite common ;-)
