Experience boundless nature and culture along the Rivers Neiße and Oder and catch a glimpse of neighbouring Poland. This is where the towns are full of tranquillity and cities steeped in history or where one can trace the signs of a European future. In contrast to the urban life, idyllic, vast landscapes will leave a long-lasting impression. The path mainly leads along the shores of the Rivers Oder and Neiße and passes through Europe’s largest flood plains in the "Unteres Odertal" National Park.
The tour starts in Gruben, which is on the German-Polish border. The Oder and Neisse flow together in Ratzdorf. Here the gauge house showed the record level of 6.88 meters during the flood of the century in 1997. The cycle path leads through the Oder-Spree lake district to Hohensaaten. In between there are plenty of reasons to get off your bike.
The Monastery in Neuzelle is one of the few completely preserved monastery complexes in Europe. The next surprise is waiting a few kilometres further north: Eisenhüttenstadt. The town was built for the steel mill in the 1950s. The houses of the four residential complexes in the "confectioner's style" are becoming increasingly popular as a backdrop for cinema and television films.
In the Kleiststadt Frankfurt (Oder) you can take a detour to the Polish neighbours or you can visit the Marienkirche with the valuable lead glass windows.
When the Adonis florets bloom around Lebus in spring, the slopes of the Oder turn a bright yellow. In
In April 1945 the Oderbruch was the scene of fierce fighting. In Kienitz there is a monument to a Russian tank that commemorates the fighting in the last days of the war. In Groß Neuendorf you can spend the night in the Kulturhafen in former railway wagons and enjoy the view over the Oder from the café in the loading tower.
