 This section of the "Cycle Route to Luther" takes you from the northeast of Thuringia to the north of Saxony. Be enchanted by the picturesque nature around Leipzig and enjoy the varied mix of forests, meadows, rivers and lakes. The tour also offers opportunities to see regional sights at regular intervals. From Gnadenstein Castle, Frohburg Castle and Colditz Castle, to a pottery and a shield museum, to monastery, bridge and spa parks, there is something for everyone.

Author’s recommendation

 Take the time for small pleasure breaks in nature, especially in the Dahlener Heide.
