Kurhaus, Bad Schmiedeberg

Stage Bad Schmiedeberg-Leipzig

From the spa town of Bad Schmiedeberg, the cycle path leads through the mill region of northern Saxony to the metropolis of Leipzig.

On the last stage it goes from the tranquil Bad Schmiedeberg in an also lovingly renovated spa town, which invites with small stores, cafes and restaurants to enjoy and linger - Bad Düben.
Still shortly before the city, you pass the wood sculpture meadow in Tornau - a now large collection, which impressively presents the "art with chainsaws".

Arrived in Bad Düben, one finds directly next to the castle Düben the nature park house of the Dübener Heath, in which also the tourist information is integrated. With the ultra-modern and multimedia permanent exhibition, it is the central communication point of the nature park.

On the last section of the route towards Leipzig, you should once again make a stop in Wölkau at the patron saint's church and take a look at the beautiful natural landscape of the Düben Heath from the observation tower. The following about 20 km of the cycle path lead on quiet country roads through the suburbs of Leipzig and finally on the very good cycle paths of the water-rich parklands to the heart of the vibrant university city.

Tipp des Autors

The also very popular Mulderadweg runs through Bad Düben. This leads in a westerly direction to the Great Goitzsche Lake at the gates of the city of Bitterfeld. The Goitzsche lake region is a scenic gem with several bathing spots, a water sports center and a modern wake park.

If you take the Berlin-Leipzig cycle route the other way around and start in Leipzig, you can travel from Bad Düben via the Mulderadweg to Bitterfeld and also reach Lutherstadt Wittenberg via the Kohle | Dampf | Licht | Seen - Radroute. The cycle route is a very special themed tour that provides insights into industrial history and the remarkable transformation of the Central German industrial region into a scenic lake district. A special highlight of this tour is FERROPLIS - the city of iron on the Pouch peninsula on Gremminer Lake.

With the slightly faster Gravelbike or even with the mountain bike, we recommend a round trip through the Dübener Heath. On this approximately 80 km long route, you pass both the Goitzsche Lake, as well as FERROPOLIS at Gräfenhainichen. The return tour runs directly through the forests of the Dübener Heide Nature Park via Tornau to Bad Düben.
