Today I completed the fourth stage of the Spree, and it was also the last in Saxony. Unfortunately, it was the least attractive yet. On the planned routes I would rarely have seen the Spree, even if the map looked like it was close to the Spree, the river could often only be heard at best. I've tried to compensate for this with a few off-grid sections, but have refrained from doing too many experiments given the length of the planned tour. The second problem was the too high proportion of asphalt and slab paths, especially for the length. On the one hand, this was due to the inevitable sections of the Spree Cycle Path (with invariably considerate cyclists, thank you very much!), And on the other hand, it was due to the fact that not all of the planned routes worked. Komoot had me plan a path that runs in a restricted military area, which gave me a long stretch on a bike path parallel to a country road. It was still okay for a stage on the Spree, but I cannot recommend the tour outside of such a project. The most beautiful section was the way to Spremberg on the left bank of the Spree (part of the bike path, but without asphalt and close to the river), I also really liked the half-timbered church in Spreewitz, which is located on a small hill.
I started at Uhyst station. I went to the church via Bautzener Strasse and Hauptstrasse. Here I took a path to the right and walked to the castle park. Behind the castle I went down Schloßstraße to the left to the Spree bridge and crossed the Spree. This was followed by a longer section on a grassy farm road on the right bank of the Spree (not in the map material). Because the grass got too high for me at some point, I went up the road bridge and hiked on combined cycle paths along country roads to Bärwalde. There a branch led me to the Spree, I followed a path to two basalt grottos. The attempt to go directly to the Schlossallee failed because of a construction fence, so back again. I passed the so-called 'castle' (which is actually a manufacturer's villa from 1922/23) - the site is not accessible and you can't see much from the street. In the center of the village there is a stone cross next to a memorial for the fallen, probably an atonement cross, which originally stood in Merzdorf and was moved when the place was sacrificed for open-cast mining.At the Mühlgraben I hiked back to the Spree, crossed it, walked past the Bärwalde bathing pond and then at the Lohsa 2 floodlight on a flagstone path north. I took a branch to the right at a water management system, a forest path led me to the Spree, which I followed on grassy paths off-grid, after a while I went back to the main path. After a short time, this path led along the edge of the Oberlausitz military training area. I crossed the Spree and walked a short distance on the access road to the military training area, then I hiked on forest paths near the Spree. Shortly after a small power station I had to go to the right to the street in order not to enter the forbidden area. I hiked on the bike path next to the road to a forest path on the edge of the restricted area, which led me to the Ruhlmühle - you could rent boats here in normal times. I crossed the Spree again and came to a nameless body of water, on stones laid out I reached the other bank with dry feet. Behind Döschko (which belongs to Neustadt) I took a forest path to the right, which later becomes an asphalt path. Via this I reached Neustädter Hammer, where I took a break at a rest area by the river. From here I had to follow the Spreeradweg as far as possible, an 'experiment' in the forest was unsuccessful. Shortly before the level crossing, I allowed myself another piece of forest path for a change.A side street between the Great and Small Spree led me to Spreewitz, where I visited the Protestant parish church from 1688. In front of this is a memorial to the fallen and an atonement cross from the late Middle Ages.On the right bank of the Spree, I followed the Spreeradweg again - I didn't have to look for alternatives because only the dedicated paths can be used here. A bit behind the Wilder Wehr (with picnic areas) the path went away from the Spree, shortly afterwards I took a forest path to the left, which led me near the Spree and to a solar park. I got back to the Spreeradweg via a road between the solar panels. After a detour to a small vantage point on the Spree, I took another branch and walked in a curve on a grassy path to the Kuhtenbrücke, which I crossed. On the left bank a beautiful path led me into Spremberg. I crossed the next bridge and walked past an allotment garden to the White Weir, where there is a slalom course for kayaks. I followed this arm of the Spree to the castle. In front of this a memorial commemorates Ernst Tschickert, a Social Democrat who was active in the resistance against National Socialism and who was accused in 1949 of having forbidden contacts with the West SPD. He died in a Soviet camp in Siberia.I walked past the castle to the swan pond, which I circled. Then I hiked to the Georgenberg City Park with the Bismarck Tower, several monuments and military cemeteries. Via Bahnhofstrasse I reached the Spremberg train station, where the tour ended.
Wow ..... great performance .... and a nice tour 😃🐶
Respect! Great performance 👍
Thank you, Claudia and Ralf!
did you really hike 42km? : -0
Very interesting, Burkhard! I especially like the 'Ockerspree' pictures. Of course, I took a very close look at everything and thank you very much for the detailed description and the really helpful hints, which I can of course really use. I'm trying to hike the stage in the next few days or the next weekend and I'm excited.
Thank you very much for taking you on the Spree hike and the great description and documentation of your experiences. I immediately feel like hiking in the river again. But I have to be patient with the Spree and like to continue to follow your activities 😃 Very nice and great tour 👍🏻

Thanks for sharing this extensively documented tour that you probably did as the first one. Of course, you have to face the fact that this is a landscape that has been partially battered by mining, industries and their consequences - but the impressions conveyed in your pictures are quite exciting! I assume that the Spree river is the motivation to keep going :-)
Top. Congratulations on the project
What a great tour with an impressive 42 kilometers! The lack of proximity to the bank will probably be a problem on all such river tours. But you still mastered it and took great photos. Is that also the Spree that flows across the street 😅
Thank you, Mira! Well, the length was not an end in itself, I just couldn't find any other way to cut the stages differently, unfortunately Spreewitz no longer has a train station.
