Details

On a round tour of 260 kilometers, the pickle cycle path offers the opportunity to learn everything there is to know about the famous “Spreewald pickles” and at the same time to experience the wonderful landscape of the UNESCO biosphere reserve. You drive on a well signposted route past picturesque watercourses (rivers), romantic villages, cucumber fields and regional cultivation and processing plants as well as numerous sights. You will also encounter Sorbian culture at every turn.
The starting point is the lovely town of Lübben (Spreewald), which is centrally located between Ober- and Unterspreewald. You cycle along the Spree in the first section to Lübbenau / Spreewald, the city of cucumbers and boat trips, and on to the most famous places in the Spreewald - Lehde and Leipe, both of which were built on several islands and are completely surrounded by watercourses and the Spree are. Here at the latest you will encounter the Sorbian customs and traditions.
The next stop is Raddusch, where a visit to the reconstructed Slavic castle is worthwhile. Via Vetschau with its Wendish-German double church you get to the health resort of Burg, where you can relax in the Spreewaldtherme. The old Spreewald railway line takes you comfortably to the former Wendish village of Werben and then to Cottbus, one of the highlights of your bike tour. After cycling through the Peitzer pond landscape in the second section, you drive west in the midst of a varied landscape, including through Dissen, which is one of the most stork-rich places in Brandenburg. Next you come on your route to Straupitz with its Schinkel Church, which is unique in Europe, as well as the villages of Neu and Alt Zauche and then arrive back in Lübben (Spreewald).
In the third section of the round trip, it goes north and through Hartmannsdorf past some ponds to Schlepzig, one of the oldest Spreewald villages. Via Krugau you come to Groß Leuthen, which is located on the west bank of the lake of the same name. It continues through the municipality of Märkische Heide to Gröditsch, Pretschen, Alt-Schadow and around the Neuendorfer See to Neuendorf. In a southerly direction you cycle to Leibsch. This is where the largest rivers in the Spreewald come together. The next stop on the round trip is the Wendish fishing settlement of Köthen with its lake, over the Wehlaberg you reach the stage destination Krausnick. From here you can take a trip to the largest tropical leisure pool in Europe, the Tropical Islands Resort.
Back in the saddle, you first come to Groß Lubolz, then on to Golßen. The Spreewald Cucumber Day takes place every year in August in the Angerstadt. At the end of the loop you arrive in Klein Lubolz. Now it is not far back to the first stop of the cycle tour, Lübben (Spreewald).
On your bike tour you will discover the quiet landscape of the biosphere reserve, drive through great forest and meadow landscapes and experience the cultural and culinary offerings of the region.

Route characteristics

length

The total length of the main cycle route is around 266 kilometers. The variants and excursions are 15 kilometers long.

Path quality, traffic and inclines

The Gurkenradweg runs mainly on cycle and farm roads. It is rarely over roads with moderate to heavy traffic. The paths are easy to drive and mostly paved. Sometimes you drive on natural and paved surfaces (short, sandy forest paths). The route runs without any significant inclines.
The wooden bridges with steps that are typical of the Spreewald are sometimes difficult to pass, especially with a pannier, and depending on the weather, they can also be slippery.

Signage

On the bike route across the Spreewald, the signs with the bicycling pickle show the way. The entrance signs and signs are bilingual (German and Sorbian / Wendish).
