Between barges and canals.
Beginning in Cottbus, one of the greenest cities in Germany with a great number of parks , this journey leads you along the Spree on the edge of the capital Berlin. First you cross the Spreewald, a region that used to be a popular recreation area in the times of the DDR. You will encounter a colourful mosaic of forests, grasslands, rivers and lakes with a corresponding rich animal world. Not without purpose the Spreewald is a UNESCO biosphere reserve. When leaving the Spreewald you go on cycling comfortably along the Spree as it meanders into the Mark Brandenburg and the Märkische Heide. At Müggelsee you finally reach the edge of Berlin.
