The bike tour on the Elbe-Havel Canal takes you, as the name suggests, from the Elbe to the Havel. The starting point is the Hohenwarthe double savings lock. Since the town of Hohenwartthe has no rail connection, you can also consider starting the tour a bit further in Burg. Your destination is at the Havel lakes in Kirchmöser directly at the train station, so you can skilfully get back to your starting point.From the double economy lock at Hohenwarthe, the path leads you directly along the canal to Burg. Shortly afterwards you branch off from it, cross it once and drive across meadows and fields. Now you can even see the Elbe again.For a few kilometers you follow the Elbradweg through the Jerichower Land. It is worth taking a short detour to Zerben to visit the castle that inspired Theodor Fontane at the time to his novel "Effi Briest". If you want, you can also take a refreshing break at the swimming lakes, which are located directly at the junction for Zerben.A short time later, you leave the Elbe again and go back to the Elbe-Havel Canal behind Parey. You follow this from Bergzow via Genthin to Wusterwitz. The Große Wusterwitzer See is an excellent place to end your tour in a relaxed way and invites you to a swim or an ice cream on the promenade. The bike path ends in Kirchmöser at the train station. If you want, you can also curl a bit around the many lakes on the Havel before you return.
