      Leave civilization behind you and enjoy pure nature? Then out with you and off towards the Planitzwald. In addition to numerous harmless mountains, there are deep blue to turquoise lakes hidden in the middle of the forest. They are former open-cast mine holes, which with their rugged rock edges form a great photo opportunity and are reminiscent of volcanic craters.With the RB 110 you drive out to Naunhof. You can also choose to take the PlusBus lines 640 (from Klinga or Brandis) or 641 (from Kitzscher or Grimma), 644 (from Grimma or Brandis) to get there. From here it's straight ahead. You walk past the Grillensee and Moritzsee, cross the A 14 and finally dive into the green of the forest behind Ammelshain. The first picturesque pond landscapes await you on Haselberg.Wherever fish romp around today, stone picks used to be swung. The old blue and black quarries will cast a spell over you. The edge of the rock falls directly into the blue water and forms beautiful crater lakes. If you can finally break away from the sight, you walk past the no less attractive Schmielteich and on over the shady paths of the Planitzwald.The forest opens up and in front of you is not only your destination Wurzen, but also the leisurely flowing hollow that you cross with a ferry. In Wurzen you take the RE 50, the S-Bahn line S3 or one of the numerous bus lines (PlusBus 610 to Bad Lausick, 619 to Colditz, 630 to Wermsdorf, 641 to Kitzscher, 644 to Brandis, 690 to Leipzig or 693/694 Wurzen) and drive home relaxed.

      The 15-kilometer hike, always along the White Elster, has several interesting and photographic highlights. Shortly after you have crossed the river after arriving at Zeitz train station, the view of the fairytale Moritzburg Castle opens up to you.One reason for the construction and long existence of the former Moritzburg hunting lodge was probably nature in the 16th century. Due to the game, which was to be found in droves in the area in the 16th century, the headquarters of the Saxon hunting society was established there.Elector August the Strong expanded the already splendid hunting lodge into a larger pleasure palace to celebrate lavish parties. Today the castle is also popular with photographers because it is beautifully surrounded by water on a green island.After stopping at the castle, continue hiking and cross the White Elster over an idyllic bridge at Zangenberg. Then the path leads you through the green to the destination Profen, where you can still see the old fire brigade and the church. From Profen you can get to your home station the same way you got to Zeitz, because the two stations are connected by the same route.

      From platform to platform, from tree to tree - do it like a monkey and swing your way through lofty heights to test your skills and courage. And all of that with a lot of fun! On the way to the Leipzig climbing forest, great views and even a mountain church await you. When the weather is nice, you should definitely have your bathing suit with you.Take the PlusBus lines 640 and 689 from Leipzig to Beucha. The small town is known for its stonemasonry culture and so it is not surprising that you suddenly find yourself standing in front of some granite steles of different colors and origins. Directly opposite you can see the pretty Beucha mountain church on the other side of the bank of the church. With its location high on a rock above the small lake, it is a unique photo opportunity. Of course, you can also see it up close on the hike.You are now leaving Beucha towards the south. In front of you is the Albrechtshainer See, on the banks of which the Leipzig climbing forest invites you to go climbing with numerous courses of different difficulty levels. Whether it's a spider web, wobble climbing wall or the rapid 90 meter long descent with the Flying Fox - here you can let off steam to your heart's content.Then it's wonderfully wooded on the Dreiflügelweg to Naunhof. How about a dip in the cool water of the Grillensee or a promising break? Before you get on the PlusBus 640 or PlusBus 641 for your journey home, you can take a look at the loving collection of tower clock wheels in the tower clock museum. Truly timeless!

Whether old and young, big and small - the summer toboggan run conjures a grin on everyone's face with its rapid descent. Those who can tolerate a little culture can look forward to a detour to the Kohren castle ruins and the nearby pottery museum. The hike takes you to the north and then to the south of Kohren-Sahlis. Since you are touching the center, you can also cut the tour in half.From Leipzig you first take the RE6 to Geithain, then you get on the bus 264 to Kohren-Sahlis Busplatz.

      It gets particularly musical on this wonderful forest hike from Großpösna to Belgershain. In Oberholz, the idyllic piece of forest near Großpösna, you can look forward to a particularly lively conversation on the path of songs, during which you can also really break loose. Who knows, you might even lure the furry auditorium in the game reserve next door out of the shelter.The RB113 takes you from Leipzig to Oberholz (Großpösna) every hour. Follow the train tracks for around a kilometer and a half, then you will arrive at the first of twelve stations along the Path of Songs. Alternatively, you can also take the PlusBus 690, for example from Leipzig main station. It will take you to the Großpösna Pflaumenallee stop. From there it is only about 800 meters to the path of songs.For a good four kilometers you can sing as much as you can - or just let yourself be carried away on a stroll through the history of German folk songs. The content of each song board is related to the place of installation. And? Do you know all the stanzas of Wandering is the miller's lust?In a zigzag you meander from station to station through the Oberholz. At a small refuge you can give your singing organ a break and enjoy the snack you brought with you. Soon it goes straight south towards Belgershain. However, you leave the train station behind you, because the castle of the same name is definitely worth a short visit. If you have seen the former swamp castle, you walk back to Belgershain station on the same path and get on the RB113.

      A whole firework of old castles and palaces awaits you on this tour around Frohburg all the way into the Streitwald. Embark on a fairytale hike that will take you back some ages - and sometimes to a completely different world, the world of fairy tales.To the starting point of the tour, the RB113 first brings you to Geithain and from there you continue with the S4 to Frohburg. You walk about two kilometers from the train station to the center of Frohburg, where the first highlight awaits you with the castle of the same name. Inside you can admire building elements from different eras and learn about the history of the city.From the castle you follow the course of the Wyhra for a while until you reach the edge of the battle forest. No sooner have you crossed the Wyhra than Wolftitz Castle rises in front of you. The former knight's seat was in the meantime used as a retirement and nursing home, but today it is empty. Along beautiful ponds, you dive into a forest area and continue to Gnandstein.There is not only a fabulous castle to marvel at, but also a pretty fairytale garden with all sorts of well-known scenes such as Puss in Boots and the Ice Queen right at its foot. You can strengthen yourself in the café and restaurant next door. Lots of peace and idyll accompany you on the way back through the enchanting Streitwald. A fairytale ending!

      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.

      Let's be honest, who don't cute meerkats put a smile on their faces straight away? Only a short train ride away from Leipzig you will meet the cute little animals and watch them in peace and quiet as they look boldly out of their holes in the ground. In keeping with this, the tour leads you to significantly larger earth walls, which were, however, created by human hands and promise a true idyll today.You can travel comfortably with the RE50 from Leipzig and Wurzen to Kühren, then continue with the 659 bus towards Meltewitz (Falkenhain) to Mark Schönstädt. The small train station is right on the edge of the forest and so the first kilometer also runs through shady wooded areas along the rails. Once you have crossed the rails, you are standing in the open field. Past the Läusehübel you walk to Meltewitz and on until you come to the Via Regia Way of St. James.The Way of St. James leads you to a first-class view over a former quarry. The flooded open-cast mine is now a small biotope for all kinds of animal species. You follow the Way of St. James to Dornreichenbach and turn off to the animal enclosure. Fluffy mouflons, spotted pigs and the cute meerkats that have already been advertised are looking forward to your visit.On the way back to Mark Schönstädt, rich in forests and fields, a short detour to the forest pool is worthwhile. In the flooded quarry you can even go swimming and marvel at the rugged walls from a different perspective. Then it's back home refreshed on the same route.
