This wonderful round trip through the Spreewald begins in the garden city Cottbus, because from here you are in the middle of the beautiful Spreewald in no time at all. You can look forward to countless watercourses, typical neat wooden bridges, idyllic villages and an extensive network of rivers that used to completely replace the streets in the Spreewald. In the past, the wooden boat was the most important means of transport. It was used to get to work, to bring the harvest in, the cattle and everything necessary for life were transported. Let yourself be enchanted by a 1-2 hour boat trip in Lübbenau, Burg or Schlepzig. Enjoy the silence and tranquility as your boat glides smoothly in the UNESCO biosphere reserve. And of course you have to try the Spreewald pickled cucumbers from the wooden barrel, visit the Heimatstube in Dissen, which offers interesting insights into the way of life and traditions of the Sorbs / Wends, the smallest Slavic people who have cultivated their language, customs and culture up to the present day.

This trip is perfect for:

  • Nature lovers: Discover the unique landscape of the Spreewald.
  • Fans of tradition: immerse yourself in Wendish culture.
  • River enthusiasts: Did you know that roads here used to be completely replaced by rivers?

Tour

Arrive early to Cottbus, it's worth it. So you have time to explore the idyllic Branitzer Park with Pückler Castle in the afternoon and take a stroll through the beautifully restored Cottbus old town. Overnight stay in the center.

After a few kilometers you will already feel a change in the landscape, because you are in the Spreewald. Look forward to Burg, which is considered the center of Sorbian culture. Due to the remoteness of the region, old customs have kept surprisingly alive. You cycle to Vetschau on the well-signposted Gurken cycle path. Take a break here at the German-Sorbian double church and visit the information center about white storks. Past the imposing Slavic castle Raddusch, built of wood, you roll on the most beautiful bike paths through the Spreewald forest, which exudes its own fascination with its multitude of water arms. There is a lot to discover today and a lot to experience. The photogenic lagoon village of Lehde with its open air museum, the cucumber museum and the pretty town of Lübbenau are waiting for you.

Lübbenau is the tourist center of the Spreewald region. Take your time and let one of the many wooden Spree boats drive you through the imposing Spreewald early in the morning, try the famous Spreewald mustard cucumber and taste the mild horseradish. Today you cycle comfortably along the Spree to Lübben, where even the city center is criss-crossed by numerous watercourses. Marvel at the old castle and take a leisurely break. Then you leave the Oberspreewald and follow the Spree on quiet paths to Schlepzig to the most beautiful village in the Unterspreewald. From here you can individually take a round tour through the Unterspreewald or cycle to the Tropical Island (indoor waterpark). Overnight in Krausnick or Schlepzig.

Through a beautiful landscape riddled with ponds you cycle on new paths back to Lubben, where the magnificent castle is  waiting for you. Look forward to the bike route, enjoy the peace and beauty of nature and look forward to Straupitz, with its famous Schinkel church and the beautiful Dutch mill. Burg, one of the 3 main locations in the Spreewald forest awaits you today. This remarkable scattered settlement offers much to see. In the afternoon visit the local history museum that is located in an idyllic reets covered typical spreewald cabin and provides deep insight into the historic site. Also you should visit the aromatic and medicinal plant garden with over 600 medicinal plants, spices and old crops.

Before leaving Burg, be sure to visit the 27-meter high observation tower at the legendary castle hill, a prehistoric and early historic ramparts. From the top of the tower you enjoy a breathtaking panoramic view of the unique Spreewald countryside. On a disused railway line you cycle with pleasure to the Spree. Visit the absolutely worthwhile Museum of Folklore in the stork village of Dissen. An interesting exhibition informs about the lives of the Sorbian/ Wendish farmers and their festivals and customs. Dissen would actually be a normal village, if there were not so many storks (8 to 10 occupied nests), the beautiful half-timbered church and lovingly maintain museum of local history. After this break you cycle along the natural paradise Peitzer ponds to the old fortress town of Peitz and through the brown coal mining back to Cottbus.

After breakfast this tour ends back in Cottbus. Our recommendation: if you are already in the Spreewald, book in advance a extra night in Lübbenau Schlepzig or Burg.
