Between Grimma and Bad Düben
Nearly 90 kilometres of the Mulde river flows through the Leipzig region, past beautiful and idyllic floodplain landscapes, through villages and historically-significant cities, such as Grimma, Wurzen, Eilenburg and Bad Düben.
We recommend a detour along the 10-kilometre-long Eilenburg Mühlgraben, a centuries-old man-made canal.

Along the river Mulde
The Mulde is a river with two sources and many different sides to it, which has been an integral part of the region that surrounds it since the Middle Ages.
The Zwickau Mulde originates in Vogtland's Schöneck and flows around 160 kilometres before it meets the 120-metre-long Freiberg Mulde. From Sermuth, these two branches of the river combine to form the united Mulde, which then flows into the Elbe near Dessau-Roßlau, after a further 120 kilometres.
