Discover the history of this region’s industrial culture.
The first stage of the Coal I Steam I Light cycle route begins in Bitterfeld-Wolfen and ends in the southern Leipzig Neuseenland. Lake Großstolpen offers a well-deserved cool-down after a long bike ride. Along the route, tangible milestones of industrial history, such as the Zschornewitz power plant or the Mining Technology Park, are strung together. If you want to spend a little longer in the region, you can cycle around the mining lakes, which almost doubles the distance.
The Coal I Steam I Light cycle route is very varied and consists mostly of asphalted cycle paths. On some short stretches, the route also takes you along natural paths.
