      On the fourth and last stage of the COAL | STEAM | The LICHT cycle route meanders you one last time through the deep, water-filled wounds of coal mining and allows you to enjoy the beauty of the lakes created. It starts in Markkleeberg, where you cycle over Lake Cospuden to the east to Lake Störmthal.Afterwards you hit a hook to the west and come across another imposing coal mining structure: the coal belt of the Lippendorf power plant, which is still in operation. The belt transports the coal and sewage sludge over a distance of 15 kilometers to the power plant.Now you are finally on the home straight. A few last kilometers and you reach the Großstolpener See, which invites you to swim and rest. You did it!

      Also on the third stage of the KOHLE | STEAM | The LICHT cycle route alternates between wildly romantic nature and idyllic bathing lakes - with the glorious exception of the cultural metropolis of Leipzig, for which you should definitely plan a bit of time to visit.You always drive south from Bitterfeld, past numerous lakes, dreamy villages and on quiet bike paths. At some point the traffic will become denser - you are approaching the city. Rural idyll is replaced by urban park landscapes and you could theoretically leave the city aside. A little ice cream in the beautifully restored old town should at least be in there - or simply at the ice cream truck at the Sachsenbrücke in the middle of the Clara-Zetkin-Park and directly on your bike route.After that, it is not far to Markkleeberg and Lake Cospuden, which closes today's stage before tomorrow's grand finale.

      From the Ferropolis in Gräfenhainichen you can reach the second stage of the KOHLE | STEAM | LICHT cycle route first to Zschornewitz, where you can see another typical factory settlement during the coal mining period.Then the bathing fun begins: The open-cast mine has torn many deep holes in the ground in this region, which have since been converted into bathing lakes in the course of restoration measures. The result is not only pleasing for cyclists: you will hardly be able to decide which of the lakes you want to lay down on to relax a bit.This continues until you reach Bitterfeld. In between, the tower of Pouch is worth a detour, just for the magnificent view.

      On the first stage of the COAL | STEAM | LICHT cycle route you travel through time. You start the section in the historic factory settlement Piesteritz, the largest car-free factory settlement in Germany. Your path then leads you through the old town of Wittenberg, which is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, offers insights into Martin Luther's time and some of its buildings are over 500 years old.Afterwards you go out into the country and you cycle through the now idyllic but clearly industrialized landscape, past the first open-pit mines before you reach Gräfenhainichen and the impressive Ferropolis. The open-cast mining machines that still exist here tower imposingly into the sky and are an open-air museum for most of the year. A few times a year, the Ferropolis becomes a festival venue.

      The fourth and last stage of the Milde-Biese-Aland tour leads from Brunau to Beuster, where you can either continue your journey on the Elbradweg or return to Letzlingen by public transport. At 43 kilometers, this is the longest stage of the tour.You cycle through the dreamy villages of the Altmark and discover gems along the way like a baroque rectory with a beautiful garden and an old bakery. In Krumke there is the beautiful garden dream park, in which a café invites you to mark the halfway point of today's stage with a break in the middle of the park.On hot days in Osterburg, you can consider whether you want to cool off in the Biesebad, one of the last managed river baths in Europe. Then it continues towards Seehausen. There you can discover a tower clock museum next to the Romanesque St. Petri church. The 15th century Beustertor is also worth a look. If you only feel the need for cool water in Seehausen, there is the forest pool where you can refresh yourself.Now you reach Beuster, a small, idyllic place on the Alte Elbe. Here too there is a Romanesque church worth seeing, a blue light museum with an extensive collection of historical technology and old consumption from the GDR era. You have reached your goal!Finally, you can take the train home from the nearby Geestgottberg.

      The third stage of the Milde-Biese-Aland-Tour leads past a marine radio station from World War II through a large bird sanctuary where many migrants and winter guests stay. But the Curlew is also at home here - maybe you can spot it from the observation deck?From the summit of the Dolchauer Berg (at least 94 meters high) you have a great panoramic view before you continue to roll along the basic moraine "Kalbescher Werder". Shortly afterwards you will reach Brunau, where you can visit the St. Martin church with its two unequal towers.

      On the second stage of the Milde-Biese-Aland tour, you continue to drive along the enchanting Milde towards Kalbe. Along the way you will always find old buildings from different eras, including the typical old market village of Schenkenhorst, where you will find a neo-Gothic church from the 15th century and an old manor house.Kalbe itself also has a lot of cultural and historical sites to offer. In addition to a centuries-old hydraulic engineering monument with a barrage, culvert, drainage ditch and ford, there is a pretty old town with a Romanesque church and a castle ruin to discover. By the way, Kalbe is also called the city of 100 bridges and was mentioned in an old chronicle as early as 983.You will also find the MEDIAN clinic here, which has made Kalbe a popular health resort.

      On the first stage of the Milde-Biese-Aland tour there is the former Hohenzollernschloss Letzlingen, old manor houses, pretty village kiches and a few historical mills that were once driven by the Milde water. You pedal through pine forests and green meadows.In Ziepel there is an artesian village fountain that invites you to refresh yourself and have a quick rest. Then it continues to Gardelegen with its rampart and the historic town center, where a longer stop to explore is definitely worth it and the first stage ends.

      On this bike tour we take you on a journey through the impressive cultural landscape of the Leopold III garden. Friedrich Franz of Anhalt-Dessau. As a supporter of the Enlightenment, he undertook several study trips to other countries during his working life, the findings of which he also implemented in landscaping. He made a little variety in the baroque gardens and created beautiful parks that were closer to nature. Look forward to a journey of almost 70 kilometers through the blossoming garden world of a bygone era.The train station in Mosigkau is the perfect starting point. Since the tour leads around Dessau-Roßlau, it is also easy to reach from Dessau's main train station. The starting point would be just behind Ziebigk in the north of Dessau. If you start the tour in Mosigkau, the route initially leads you in a wide arc around Dessau, past the Kühnauer See and along Wallwitzberg along a section of the Elbe, which describes a pretty loop here.It continues on the Elbdamm, where the first pretty elements of the garden kingdom are not long in coming. Again and again on the tour you will encounter such dreamy buildings that locate the route in an almost fairytale-like atmosphere. A clear highlight of the tour is the Wörlitz Park shortly afterwards. Here you should definitely take the time to explore the parks more closely.Via the village of Oranienbaum, you continue south along the palace grounds of the same name along the garden kingdom of Prince Franz. Shortly afterwards you are in the middle of the Middle Elbe biosphere reserve. The protected area designated by UNSECO is home to an incredibly diverse flora and fauna, and one or the other beaver castle can also be admired here.Back to Mosigkau it goes again in a wide arc in the south around Dessau. At the end of the tour in the garden kingdom, you can still look forward to a tour of the Mosigkau Castle with its extensive park. If the tour is too long for you, you can also cleverly divide it into two small round tours. A good basis for an overnight stay is, for example, in the inner-city area north of Dessau-Roßlau.

      The Green Belt Germany is a project for nature conservation, which provides a green strip up to 200 meters wide along the former inner German border, which is to be declared a complete protected area for animals and plants. It is a fine example of how negative can be converted into positive and how a space can develop from a boundary.You start your tour on the Green Belt in Ilsenburg, which can be easily reached by train, for example, via Goslar. Slightly downhill, the route leads you first in the northeast to Berßel, where you change the compass direction and drive over Osterwieck to the Kleine Fallstein.In the middle of an otherwise rather flat landscape, such a small elevation is something special. You will also get to see something special, because from the range of hills you have an excellent view of the northern Harz foothills and the Brocken, the highest mountain not only from Saxony-Anhalt, but throughout northern Germany.Hornburg, with its beautiful old town, is the perfect place to take a break before heading back south in a small arc over Börßum and Werlaburgdorf. From Schladen you now drive directly along the Green Belt along the Oker and will certainly not only be informed once about the course of the former inner German border by information sign.From Vienenburg you change your companion and join the Ecker, which also runs along the Green Belt. About Abbenrode and and past Stapelburg the round closes again in Ilsenfeld. Only a small extension of the Harz stands in your way beforehand, then you have reached your starting point again.
