Oder-Neisse Cycle Route
Further information about our cycling holidays along the Oder-Neisse Cycle Route
The Oder-Neisse cycle path is ideal for experiencing near-natural cycling tours. The route along the river Oder and the river Neisse leads through dense forests, vast meadows and the National Park Lower Oder Valley. Take your time picking up fresh and regional fruits from the trees, exploring pretty cities and little towns along the cycle path or watching cows and storks in their natural habitat. A side trip to the Polish part of the Oder and Neisse to get an unforgettable impression of its culture and sights is highly recommended.
Further north, wooded landscape turns into the flat landscape of the Oderhaff, from where you can almost smell the Baltic Sea. At the end of your bike tour a refreshing bath in the Baltic Sea awaits you.
Further information about the Oder-Neisse cycle path
- Location / Length: The Oder-Neisse cycle path meanders along a route of 392 miles along the German-Polish border to the Baltic Sea. It begins in the Czech Nová Ves at the source of the Lusatian Neisse, crosses the border to Germany in the south of Zittau and from here continues 289 miles along the west bank of the Neisse to its estuary into the Oder. North of Frankfurt / Oder, the long-distance cycle path runs on somewhat more challenging paths to the Szczecin Lagoon and from here on as far as Ahlbeck on Usedom.
- Difficulty level / track character: The bike path, which has been excellently developed over long distances, often runs very close to the river. Starting from the Upper Lusatia in the south to the National Park Lower Oder Valley you can look forward to flat bike paths and other landscapes - a cycling pleasure for beginners and connoisseurs! North of the stage location Schwedt, the route of the Oder-Neisse cycle path becomes a little hilly, but all the more interesting.
- Signage / Logo: The logo of the Oder-Neisse cycle path shows the two rivers Neisse and Oder on a light green background and is labeled with the words "OderNeiße".
Sights and special features along the Oder-Neisse Cycle Route
In addition to Görlitz, the easternmost city in Germany, and the garden artwork Fürst Pückler Park in Bad Muskau, you will pass imposing monasteries and numerous dreamy gems on your cycle tour along Neisse and Oder. From Ratzdorf, where the Neisse flows into the Oder, fertile wetland meadows and floodplains determine the landscape. Enjoy the idyllic flora and fauna and immerse yourself in the history of former Hanseatic cities.
At Mescherin you leave the Oder River, which finally flows into the Polish Police in the Szczecin Lagoon. The Oder-Neisse cycle path leads you further to Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, where you will find quiet forests, isolated lakes and moderate inclines. Arrived at the Szczecin Lagoon, salty sea air accompanies you on your cycle tours to the seaside resorts of the island of Usedom. Let your gaze wander into the distance!
