A spectacular water world with more than 20 new lakes is being created between Dresden and Berlin. The Seenland-Route runs through the Lusatian Lakeland from north to south and back again. On the 191-kilometre-long cycle route, cyclists experience at first hand how Europe's largest man-made water landscape is growing up. Here, where lignite mining once dominated the landscape, a new holiday paradise is being created by the flooding of former open-cast mines. The decades-long transformation of the landscape can be experienced on the Seenland Route in just four daily stages.
The Lakeland Route runs from Lake Großräschen in the north to Lake Bärwalde in the south of the Lusatian Lakeland, passing a total of 16 lakes. Along the way you will experience the change in the landscape from growing lakes with rugged shores to completely flooded lakes. In some places you can still directly experience the transient stage between open-cast mining and lake. Other lakes were flooded decades ago and now boast bathing beaches, water sports, marinas and amphitheatres.
Landmarks and viewing towers along the way offer cyclists great views of the impressive changes in nature. Whether industrial culture, such as the ENERGY Route station, garden cities, rural art or the customs of the Sorbs - the Lakeland Route also awaits you with outstanding attractions away from the lakes.
