Panoramic bike ride
Equally attractive is the panoramic bike ride. This tour winds its way through Potsdam’s city center over the Pfingstberg and the Cecilienhof Castle, through the New Garden and the Babelsberg Park. Time and again, exciting visual axes and panoramas open up to pause.
Bike tours in the Potsdam hinterland
The charming surroundings can also be easily explored by bike from Potsdam. We recommend trips to the flower city of Werder and to the communities located on the Havel Ferch and Caputh.
Wall path along the old border
If you want to follow in the footsteps of German-German history, you can follow the course of the Wall through Potsdam and Berlin by bike. You can discover the remains of the old border fortifications by bicycle. One station of the 160 kilometer cycle route is Potsdam. At about 15 kilometers, it goes through the former border area of the Brandenburg state capital.
Around the Schwielowsee
This short and varied round trip leads us from Potsdam around the Schwielowsee and the Templiner lake. From the second residence of the Prussian king, it goes past natural stretches of the river, historical buildings and sights, such as the castles of Caputh and Petzow.
In the footsteps of Theodor Fontanes
The cycle route “FONTANE-RAD” opens up the northwest of Brandenburg in the footsteps of Theodor Fontane, who stands like no other for the exploration of the Mark. The route leads to those places and landscapes in the Havelland and in the Ruppin Lakeland, which served as a model for his main work “Wanderungen durch die Mark Brandenburg”.
