Leipzig by bike

Rosental – Gründerzeit district on Waldstraße – hip district of Plagwitz – Spinnerei with its international galleries – Johanna-Park (2,5 – 3 hours/ 20km) If you want to know what made Leipzig the most livable city in Germany, take a bike tour with us to places that most guests don’t see. In our opinion, the best way to get a well-founded overview of the city. From the Rosental tower you have a unique view of the city. The Gründerzeit district on Waldstraße is just as much on your route as the young, hip Plagwitz district with its many small pubs, shops and gems. A highlight of the tour is certainly a visit to what was once the largest cotton spinning mill in continental Europe, which today houses many well-known galleries, factories, a cinema and a restaurant. Along the Karl-Heine-Canal you reach Schleußig with the largest industrial monument in Europe from the Gründerzeit. Ready to bike through one of the most laid back cities in Europe?

Colditz Castle

Almost 500 years old, but most famous for its younger history. Colditz Castle is especially in England known for hosting Oflag IV-C a Prisoners of War Camp during World War II. The Castle is located in Colditz, a small town on the river Mulde, that is roughly 50 km away from Leipzig. We recommend to take the trip from Leipzig by bike. The area is a paradise for riding road bike and not boring at all. On the way to Colditz you have the chance to explore the so called „Neuseenland“. The name can be translated as ‘New Lakeland’, because till the end of the GDR the area was dominated by open brown coal pits. Since the 1990s the former moonscape is getting transformed into a recreation area. If you prefer to take a trip that is more relaxed, we can arrange it as well.
