Leipzig Region­ by Bike

Discover the most beautiful cycle routes

Miles of idyllic cycle paths lead through a picturesque landscape with historic towns and peaceful villages surrounded by forests, lakes and floodplains. Thanks to a well-developed network of paths, it is easy to explore Leipzig city and its surrounding region by bike. Numerous long-distance cycle routes and main regional bike trails run in all directions and are interconnected, making it easy to design your own tour.

Long-Distance Cycle Routes


On our long-distance cycle routes, you can extensively explore the region. Connections to other routes such as the Elbe bike trail invite you to continue your journey into neighbouring regions. You can also pedal the long-distance trails in stages. Our cycling brochure gives you a good overview of the complete network of cycle paths in the region.

Circular Routes and Main Cycle Routes

We recommend you try one of the main cycle routes in the region for an active day out. Themed cycle routes cover interesting topics such as the changing landscape in the region on the Kohle-Dampf-Licht (Coal-Steam-Light) cycle tour or a refreshingly fruity breath of air in Saxony's largest fruit-growing region on the Obstland cycle route. Leipzig's New Lake District remains a well-loved destination for days out and can certainly promise you one thing when you cycle the New Lake District cycle route – lakes as far as the eye can see. It is mandatory to take a refreshing dip on hot summer days!
