      The ninth stage runs constantly up and down the northern edge of the Harz - with over 800 vertical meters in the ascent a real, small mountain stage. Take your time for some breaks in the beautiful cities along the stage, then today's tour is no problem.Before the start of the bike tour, it is definitely worth a trip through the impressive old town of Goslar with its innumerable perfectly preserved half-timbered buildings. Then you leave the city and cycle on lonely bike paths through the northern foothills of the Harz mountains. Shortly after Bad Harzburg you cross the former German border and are now in Saxony-Anhalt.Here you cycle on the edge of the Harz through Ilsenburg and Drübeck, before you reach Wernigerode. Wernigerode also has a medieval old town like a fairytale movie. Many cafés and restaurants offer themselves here for a long break. Afterwards you cycle on forest trails, which offer you again and again magnificent views of the North German Plain, to the stage destination Blankenburg.

      At the beginning of the tenth stage, you can proudly say that you have already made half of the entire bike ride. With almost 83 kilometers of track today is also the longest stage of the bike path in front of you. The route continues along the Harz and from Ermsleben into the expanses of the Magdeburger Börde.From Blankenburg you cycle over hilly meadows to neighboring Thale, where the Bode flows out of the gorge-like Bodetal valley into the North German Plain. On open meadows you drive under the wooded mountainsides of the Harz. You pass Ballenstedt with the magnificent castle and at Ermsleben you finally leave the mountainous landscape of the Harz mountains behind you.Before you open the wide landscape of the Magdeburger Börde. The bike path leads gently downhill and without much effort you roll through small villages and past the Concordiasee to the stage destination Staßfurt.

      As befits a Germany crossing, of course, your bike tour starts at a border - in this case, in the very west on the Dutch-German border. From here you cycle through the vast meadows of Münsterland and visit small towns along the way.In Vreden district Zwillbrock starts the first stage of the Radnetz D-Route 3. You cycle through the vast wet meadows of the Zwillbrocker Venn and Ellewicker field and then visit the cozy old town of Vreden.On almost flat bike paths and quiet roads, you then cross the vast fields and pastures of Münsterland. Another nice stop is the center of Stadtlohn, where you can fortify yourself in numerous restaurants. Afterwards, the bike path will continue over fields and meadows and through small woodland until you reach the finish line. The stage ends just outside Coesfeld, which is only four kilometers away from here.The journey to the small border town of Vreden-Zwillbrock is not that easy. The best way to get there is by train from the Ruhr area via Arnhem and Zutphen to Lichtenvoorde-Groenlo station. The station is only about ten kilometers from the starting point of your stage. If you are too cumbersome to get to the starting point, you can alternatively start your bike tour with the second stage, as Coesfeld can easily be reached by train.

      On the 17th and last stage it is time to say goodbye. To sweeten the end of your tour again, today you can expect dreamlike, untouched landscape. The Oderbruch on your way from Buckow to Küstrin is sparsely populated like no other area in Germany.Leave Buckow heading east and cycle for a while over the wooded ridges of Märkische Schweiz. Soon, the forest opens and gives you the view of a wide, gently rolling meadow landscape. On good cycle paths along old cobblestone streets you cycle towards Oderbruch.In Neuhardenberg, it is worth taking a break before the bike path leads you into the lowland meadows of the Oderbruch. Until well into the 18th century here were endless wet meadows and swamps, until under the direction of the chief dike inspector Simon von Haerlem the Oder diverted and the Oderbruch was laid dry. As a result, many small settlements, villages and farms were built here.The cycle path leads you once across the Oderbruch to the diked course of the Oder. On the dike, you will finally cycle south to your destination Küstrin on the Polish border.Finally, if you are on the Oder bridge with the front wheel in Poland and the rear wheel in Germany, then you have indeed reached the end of your journey. With pride you can look back on the past 17 days. From the bike saddle, you have come to know and love the diversity of Germany between the Netherlands and Poland in an intensive way.From the station Küstrin-Kietz on the German side of the border brings you the NEB-Bahn RB26 back to Berlin, where you can easily start your journey home. The timetable can be found at neb.de/linien/rb26.

      The 15th stage is fundamentally different from all other stages of the Radnetz D-Route 3. Instead of lonely nature you cycle today right through the heart of Berlin. In spite of everything you will be amazed by how many forests and parks you drive.Starting point of the stage is the city center of Potsdam. Here you cycle through the suburbs of Berlin and then change at the famous Glienicker Bridge from Brandenburg to Berlin. On forest trails you cross the Düppeler forest on the banks of the Havel and then take a look at the Wannsee. From the Wannsee S-Bahn station you follow the Havelchaussee through the Grunewald and finally reach the Heerstraße.This leads you straight ahead past the Victory Column and up to the Brandenburg Gate - here you must not forget a souvenir photo. At the Brandenburg Gate, you also cross the line of the Berlin Wall and change to the eastern part of the city. It goes past the TV tower and then over the East German boulevard Karl-Marx-Allee to the East Side Gallery. Here stands the longest existing part of the Wall - but today is decorated by artists from around the world.Cross over the Warsaw Bridge to the other bank of the Spree, cycle through lively Kreuzberg and dive into the Treptower Park. At the Plänterwald, the BVG ferry F11 returns to the other shore. There you cycle through the landscape park Wuhlheide to today's stage destination Berlin Köpenick.If the traffic and bustle in the capital are too much for you, you can also take the S-Bahn line S7 at the Wannsee S-Bahn station and get off at the Ostkreuz station in the district of Friedrichshain. From here you change to the other Spree shore and meet in Treptower Park again on the signposted bike path.

      The eleventh stage will take you through the open landscape of the Magdeburger Börde in a wide loop. From Staßfurt you cycle on the banks of the Bode on quiet bike paths through a picturesque meadow landscape. Always along the river you drive through the villages Hohenerxleben and Neugattersleben, until the Bode at Nienburg flows into the Saale.Up the river you cycle along the course of the river Saale to Bemburg, where the Fuhne flows into it. Here you leave the Saale and drive instead across wide, open meadows on the Fuhne further south. Leave the narrow river in the small village of Leau and follow the cycle path to the east. A hilly landscape dominated by meadows and fields goes along country lanes and quiet roads to Köthen. Here you can marvel at the impressive town hall in the idyllic old town and take a break in one of the restaurants. Also worthwhile is a visit to the city museum in the castle Köthen.Strengthened you follow the bike path Radnetz D-Route 3 past grain fields and through small villages to the stage destination Dessau.

      Even if you feel like a cyclist in Münster, on the third day it is time to say goodbye - and not only from Münster. Today's tour takes you from Münsterland to the adjacent Emssandebene. After crossing the Dortmund-Ems-Kanal and the Werse, you will cycle over wide meadows and through small woodland to the village of Müssingen.Shortly after the village you will find the nature reserve Emsaue and thus the landscape of the Emsandebene. Now you cycle along the meadows and the Kottruper lakes to Warendorf. Here you have earned a long break in the quaint old town, before it goes out directly from the city on the banks of the Ems. From Warendorf the cycle path of the Radnetz D-Route 3 roughly follows the course of the Ems. Along the lush meadows you cycle to the finish line Harsewinkel.

      As exciting and lively as the 15th stage was through Berlin, today's stage is so calm and contemplative. From the starting point in Köpenick, the Radnetz D-Route 3 takes you along the banks of the Großer Müggelsee, the largest lake in Berlin. At Erkner am Dämeritzsee you change back to Brandenburg and cycle along good paths along the lakes and lakes of the Grünheider Seenkette. The chain of lakes was formed in the last ice age as a drainage channel of the melting glaciers.At Kagel you leave the chain of lakes and drive north over beautiful, wide fields. Before reaching today's stage goal, it is slowly getting a little hilly again - especially for Brandenburg. Here the glaciers of the last ice age pushed together some ridges and therefore this landscape bears the affectionate name "Märkische Schweiz". With its wooded mountains and hills, the narrow valleys and the idyllic lakes, the Märkische Schweiz is without question one of the most beautiful landscapes in the already picturesque Brandenburg.In the middle of Märkische Schweiz lies the spa town of Buckow, your destination for today.

      From Bad Belzig, the starting point of the 14th stage, you cycle over the hilly foothills of the high Fläming in the northeast. Soon you'll leave the ridge behind you and dive into the typical and endless pine forests of Brandenburg. Especially on warm days, the pines smell wonderful after summer vacation.In a loop, it then passes at the Beelitz Heilstätten first under the A9 motorway and then over the A9 and the A10 over until you reach the Potsdamer lake landscape at Ferch. Ferch is just a few meters off the bike path and is perfect for a long break.Then you cycle on well-developed bike paths and with a beautiful view of the Schwielowsee and the Templin lake along in the Brandenburg state capital Potsdam. If you still have desire and reserves, a detour to the UNESCO World Heritage listed Schlosspark Sanssouci is worthwhile.

      On the 13th stage you leave the meadow landscape of the Elbe valley and cycle north over the hills of the High Fläming. The Fläming takes its name from the Flemish settlers, who settled here in the High Middle Ages in the then founded Mark Brandenburg.From Wittenberg you cycle to the north and soon the bike path climbs gently. On quiet bike and dirt roads you drive off the road through hilly fields and through small forests. Shortly after you have crossed the A9 motorway, you will reach the castle Rabenstein. Since the Mark Brandenburg was formerly a border area, there were numerous castles here, which should offer the settlers protection. Rabenstein is one of these castles and is still very well preserved today. A castle tavern invites you to a longer break.Through silent pine forests and over wide grain and rape fields the bike path leads further north. On your tour to the stage destination Bad Belzig you pass several small villages, which have preserved their medieval charm to this day. Bad Belzig is worth a visit to Eisenhardt Castle. There you can climb up to the keep and enjoy a wonderful view.
