Ancient cultural landscapes, countless bathing lakes, lush, green nature, and a dense network of cycle paths – Saxony-Anhalt is an excellent destination for your next cycling holiday. Despite all these highlights, the region in the east of Germany is still a real insider tip among touring cyclists. But since this summer is all about adventuring closer to home, now is the perfect opportunity to discover this corner of Germany, and the best way to do that is by bike.

In addition to its wild and romantic nature, Saxony-Anhalt boasts a wealth of cultural and historical sites from all eras of the last millennium. You will discover thousand-year-old castle ruins, pretty Renaissance palaces, and imposing steel remnants from industry which had a lasting impact on Saxony-Anhalt’s landscape.



We have put together two bike Tours for you, which you can ride in up to four stages per Tour (if you're ambitious, you can do them in less). The KOHLE | DAMPF | LICHT (coal, steam, light) cycle route follows the tracks of the coal industry from the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site Lutherstadt Wittenberg to close to Leipzig. The Milde-Biese-Aland Tour takes you along the river of the same name in the northwest of Saxony-Anhalt.

The starting and finishing points of the Tours can be easily reached by public transport, so you can travel home comfortably by bus or train at the end of your adventure. On the way, you will find numerous guesthouses, inns, and campsites as well as restaurants and beer gardens, which are looking forward to your visit. At the end of both Tours, you can switch onto European Cycle Paths to continue your cycling adventure.
