A gravel tour to the pagoda tower in Oranienbaum Castle Park has been on my "to ride" list for a while. The weather forecast today with wind and rain was not ideal for a brevet, but what the heck, if you don't dare you won't win. So after a hearty breakfast we went on our bike, first familiar paths to the north, past the Werbeliner lake and the paddle wheel to Delitzsch. The castle here is definitely worth a visit. We continued to the Goitzsche and past the Muldestausee. From Muldenstein it went into the forest and then into the Oranienbaumer Heide - a Graveltraum, great forest paths, fine trails - fun guaranteed 😉👍. Then I was already in Oranienbaum and at my destination, the Chinese tower. The castle and the castle park as well as the historic market square are worth a visit, so plan your time. Then it went on, back into the forest and on to the Dübener Heide. My next stopover was Reinharz, a great moated castle with a park, it's worth a detour. The castle itself is currently being renovated, so it is not accessible, but even the exterior view and the park are impressive. Many great kilometers on forest trails later I reached Bad Düben (there is also a castle that you can visit here). From here it went back up the river along the hollow. In Hohenpriesewitz there is a great castle park to visit, the castle complex itself is not accessible. In Gruna, I briefly considered taking the ferry to the east side of the Mulde, but on the map I saw that there should also be a castle in Zschepplin, so I had a new stopover. However, you can't really get to the castle there, so it's not worth visiting. Along the Mulde it went on to Eilenburg and on the local castle hill. There is not much left of the historic complex, but a detour is still worthwhile, if only because of the great view of Eilenburg. On the way back to Leipzig there was still an absolute highlight waiting, the fairytale castle in Lübschütz, if you pass there - be sure to see it. From here it wasn't far to Leipzig. A great tour, the proportion of roads was kept within very manageable limits, but there were a lot of gravel, forest and bike paths. Especially in the heather you can't stop grinning - very high fun factor.

Finally a day as expected in May, temperatures over 20 degrees, not too much wind and sun ☀️. So good conditions for something longer. For some time I had been thinking about cycling the Mulderadweg upstream from the Goitzsche, today it should be time. So first to the north over the Webeliner See to Delitzsch and on to Goitzsche, then along the Mulde to Wurzen. In between there were great castles and mansions to marvel at, like the one in Hohenprießnitz and Thallwitz. Then used a small ferry at Gruna to get over the Mulde. In Wurzen I left the Mulde and went through the Planitzwald, Nauenhof and the southern lakes back to Leipzig. A very nice route, very little road, a lot of gravel, forest and bike paths.

Today the destination was Saale Valley. From the center of Leipzig we went along the Neue Luppe and white Elster in the direction of the Saale. Past Raßnitzer and Wallendorfer See on the finest gravel roads. At the Hohen Brücke (a monument from the Middle Ages) we went south along the Saale to Bad Dürrenberg. The graduation tower there and the Borlach Museum are worth a visit. We continued on the Saale cycle path to Kleinkorbetha, there we crossed the Saale and on the other bank we continued to Weißenfels. From there on to Goseck Castle, next to the medieval building, which is worth a visit, there is a great snack with lovingly prepared dishes that provide energy for the next few kilometers. From the castle it went to the solar observatory, the Saxony-Anhalt “Stonehenge” and on via Naumburg to the Schönburg. Here, too, there is a possibility to fill your bottles and have a snack. In Schönburg we left the Saale and followed a wonderful bike path through the meadow landscape along the Werthau. At Caurwitz we went on an old railway embankment, which was expanded into a great bike path, to Zeitz and from there back over the Elsteraue and the Zwenkauer and Cospudener See.
Overall, a great round, hardly any roads, a lot of forest, field and bike paths and some trails, very varied.

A very nice gravel tour with many highlights. From the center of Leipzig we first went along the Elster to the southern lakes. Here you come to Knauthain Castle. Then on to the Trages dump and to the Nimbschen monastery in the Mulde valley. Along the Mulde we passed Grimma and Trebsen Castle before we left the Mulde valley again and continued to Johannas Höhe. Then off into the Wermsdorf Forest, past barrows to Wermsdorf. There, of course, had to be a detour to Hubertusburg, before going back through the forest and past the old ramparts of a moated castle towards Collmberg. From this highest point of the tour it went back to the Muldetal and Wurzen and finally through the Planitzwald back towards Leipzig. The tour runs largely over field and forest paths, some small trails are also included. The asphalt boulders are partly cycle paths and side streets, the more heavily frequented street passages never last long.

Wonderful gravel tour into the Mulde valley with a high share of gravel and some highlights. In addition to the Nimbschen monastery, you pass through Grimma and Trebsen Castle. The route is very varied and leads over forest, field and bike paths and only rarely and briefly over roads.

Friday and finally usable weather, the first time this week. The wind was blowing properly from the southwest, but the conditions were always better than in the last few days and so it was again in the direction of Geiseltalsee and around it. Not a new route, but always nice and thanks to the wind with a good training effect 😉.

We traditionally hike on Good Friday, so this morning we go to the Elbe Sandstone Mountains. From the Lichtenhain waterfall it went through the wild hell to the Carolafelsen and back over the cowshed. In particular, the passages in the "wild hell" are really great, a little climbing adventure. Since the weather was not quite as spring-like as in the last few days, the paths and climbing passages were also pleasantly little frequented, but you are happy to accept a little drizzle and fresh temperatures. Only with the prospects could it have briefly clarified 😉.

Even today there was again very pleasant spring weather, which could not be left unused. So briefly thought about where to go and decided in favor of the Mulde valley. Over beautiful gravel routes, forest and field paths, few roads and some nice paths we went towards Mulde. First past the Cospudener, Markkleeberger and Störmthaler See, through the Oberholz and over the Hirschberg to the Nimbschen monastery. Then rolled on over Grimma along the Mulde to Trebsen and then over the Planitzwald towards Nauenhof and back - all in all a very nice tour.

Finally another spring day that deserves the name. So after work, grabbed the bike and off we went into the sunset. The forest and field paths are already a little dry, so that it wasn't a total mud fight, it could be graveled nicely 😉. In the next few days, the underground will certainly be even better.
