On the varied circular trail around Lake Senftenberger See there is a lot to discover for cyclists. From all sides you have a good view of the striking nature-reserve island in the lake. The passenger boats “Santa Barbara” and “Aqua Phönix” sail across the lake, allowing cyclists to shorten their journeys if they wish. One worthwhile short detour is to the Koschen Canal, the first navigable waterway in the Lusatian Lake District, which connects Lake Senftenberger See with Lake Geierswalder See.

Length: 17 kilometres

Start/finish (recommended): Senftenberg OT Großkoschen

Circuit tour via: Großkoschen - Niemtsch -Senftenberg - Buchwalde

Trail conditions: The circuit is mostly on the asphalted, partly paved lake circuit and is largely flat.

Points of interest along the route
  • Senftenberg town harbour
  • Senftenberg castle and fortress
  • Zoo in Senftenberg
  • Koschen Canal with the lock in Kleinkoschen
  • Amphitheatre in Großkoschen
  • Observation tower between Hafencamp and Südsee


Parking: Large car park at the bathing area in Großkoschen, on the west shore in the Niemtsch bathing area, on the north shore in the Buchwalde bathing area as well as at the harbour camp and the Südsee bathing area

Food and drinks: at the bathing area in Großkoschen various snack bars, restaurants and a beach bar; ice cream parlour at the harbour camp; on the west bank the restaurants Niemtscher Mühle and Strandidyll; at the town harbour Restaurant, Bistro & Café Cucina; in the Buchwalde bathing area restaurants in the Strandhotel and the Brasserie am Seeschlößchen

Useful information about the bicycle tour:
  • numerous bathing and sunbathing lawns, e.g. in Großkoschen, Niemtsch, Buchwalde, Senftenberg and at Lake Südsee
  • Viewpoints: With its 10-degree inclination angle, the 31.5-metre-high “Leaning Tower” on the southern shore of Lake Senftenberger See leans even more than the world-famous “Leaning Tower of Pisa”. From its viewing platform there is an excellent view of the protected island complex.
  • public toilets: around Lake Senftenberger See in the bathing areas and at the town harbour
  • playgrounds: there are many playgrounds around Lake Senftenberger See
  • the longest part of the lake circuit is unshaded
  • the lake circuit has kilometre posts and the circuit number 10
  • connecting lake circuits: Lake Geierswalder See (16 kilometres)


Tip: Pedal boats, canoes and boards for stand up paddling (SUP) can be rented at the harbour camp. In Niemtsch it is possible to rent surfboards as well as swim, and the area between the island and the town harbour offers excellent windsurfing conditions.
