    Today, the route starts in Saxony-Anhalt and leads you back towards the end of the stage on Thuringian soil. The stage is characterized by two long sections on beautiful bike paths (some former railway lines) and thus runs over long distances completely traffic-free.It starts right on the Saale - if only for a few hundred meters. Then the route bends to the south and takes you over the mill bike path through the picturesque valley of Wethau. About quiet cycle paths and small roads you come to the tranquil village of Seidewitz, where the entrance to the Zuckerbahnradweg is located. Where once trains with coal and sugar rattled, today you can enjoy the beautiful scenery in the border area of ​​Thuringia and Saxony-Anhalt completely car-free. The only price you have to pay is occasional stops on one or the other bollards, which here and there ensure safe crossing of some roads.In Zeitz you have already made more than half of today's tour and you deserve a short or longer break absolutely. Zeitz is best suited for this. Whether just a quick coffee in the well-kept city center or a longer break with a tourist program - you will not be bored here.After the break, you have a new companion: From now follows our route of the White Elster, a tributary of the Saale, which brings you partly accompanied by the Elster bike path directly to the final destination to Gera. Here you have no problems finding a suitable accommodation or finishing your tour and coming back to Jena by train.
