    Great bike path right on the water. Incredibly beautiful. It was pleasantly empty in December, but in summer you probably have to share the way with many walkers on nice days. At least everywhere there are signs that call for mutual consideration.

    Like almost every lake around Leipzig, there is a nice bike path around it.

    The Störmthaler See is worthwhile in every season. You can cycle very well, well signposted and almost entirely paved. Many swimming areas and a lot of gastronomy is offered ....

    The 34.8-kilometer circular route around both lakes near Markkleeberg is a great experience. Although the path was well frequented, you can still find a place to rest and enjoy nature.

    On warm summer days, you can stop at one of the small sections of the beach at any time and cool off your feet.

    Great bike paths, wide view. Unless you are bothered by the post-industrial charm and the landfill.

    We haven't been to the Leipziger Neuseenland for a long time and were surprised how well you can vacation here. Everything is there and is right outside the door.
