From Berlin via Wittenberg and Dessau-Roßlau to Eisleben

Total Route Length: approx. 220 km – We recommend 2 overnight stays

Berlin is the capital and cultural metropolis. The numerous cultural institutions invite you to go on an extended tour of discovery. The world-famous Museum Island is located between the Spree and the Kupfergraben. It houses the archaeological collections and art from the 19th century.

The Berlin Modernist housing estates are among the first social housing estates in Germany. Great architects have worked here, above all Bruno Taut, who, in addition to the garden city of Falkenberg, was also responsible for the implementation of the settlement at Schillerpark. Via historic Potsdam, surrounded by the Havel and countless lakes, you continue through the Brandenburg heathland, often on side roads through picturesque tree-lined avenues, to Lutherstadt Wittenberg.

In the city where Luther posted his 95 theses on the door of the castle church, there are several places where the great reformer worked. We continue across the Elbe to Dessau-Roßlau, where the Bauhaus was active. In addition to the Bauhaus itself, the villas of the Bauhaus masters can once again be admired.

The region is an ideal stretch of land for cyclists, not only on the Elbe Cycle Path. Along the Deutsche Alleenstraße, the route leads via the historic Bach town of Köthen to the Luther town of Eisleben, where Martin Luther was born and died.
