MDV - Mitteldeutscher Verkehrsverbund planned a hike.

    The water rushes along the river bed, rumbling and roaring. Right in the middle: a kayak. The paddles hit the waves in a flash. Right, left, phew. The rapids are done! Orders are shouted loudly behind him. A rafting boat fights its way through the masses of water. Will the crew make it? You can attend this spectacle - as a spectator or even pick up the paddle yourself. And you don't have to drive far to do that. But more on that later.From the Markkleeberg train station, which you can easily reach by S-Bahn, take the 106 bus to the Markkleeberg Seepromenade stop. On the hiking and cycling path you now stroll towards the west around the lake. On the opposite bank of the lake, the path climbs a little to the Crostewitzer Höhe. Above you can expect a wonderful view over the lake and to the Leipzig Völkerschlachtdenkmal, the university giant and the striking tower of the New Town Hall. In addition, massive bison live up here in a spacious enclosure.Then it goes gently downhill to the lakeshore and along the Störmthaler Canal under the motorway. From the path you can see the huge bucket wheel excavators that once plowed through the landscape south of Leipzig. The Bergbau-Technik-Park shows you a typical open pit construction that shows you the entire funding cycle very realistically. The stars of the park are the two monstrous large devices.After your visit to the mining park, it's back to the canal back to the lake shore. At the southern end of the Markkleeberger See it gets really exciting. A whitewater park was built there around ten years ago and is now used for competitions - but hobby canoeists can also let off steam while training. By the way, you can also join a rafting crew yourself and master the canal with the massive inflatable boats. Just watching makes it clear: everyone is having a lot of fun here!At the end it will be really calm and relaxed. You stroll along the shore of the lake, can see sails, rowing boats and also one or the other excursion steamers go by. If you have thought of bathing suits, it is worth taking a dip in the cool, clear water. After circumnavigating the lake, bus line 106 will bring you back to the train station.
