Your highlights:

  • Surprising: discover the tranquil Moryn and swim in the crystal clear lake

Where railroads used to run, bicycles roll today 

You start in Wriezen, from where it goes through the wide landscape of the Oderbruch. In the 18th century, the transformation from swampland to today's sparsely populated cultural landscape took place. You make good progress along the former railroad line until you suddenly find yourself standing at the imposing Oder River. The recently opened Europabrücke makes it possible to pass the great border river on foot or by bike. Information boards on history and nature and fantastic views of the Oder floodplain invite you to linger. 

The bikes purr along the former railroad line, today's long-distance cycle path 20, towards Moryn on the best asphalt. Only sometimes does an old brick house stand directly on the route: they are former station buildings, some with gardens and paddling pools where children romp, laundry fluttering in the wind. A summer idyll like from an old movie. 

Historic Moryn with swimming beach

Moryn, situated on a hill, welcomes you with almost completely preserved town walls. The medieval town layout is well preserved. The typical field stones are used everywhere. The ice-age witnesses are also thematized in the local geopark. The church is also worth a look. It is considered a valuable cultural monument.

But how about a little refreshment? The deepest lake in Western Pomerania glistens turquoise, the depth of visibility is phenomenal! Hidden accesses, but also a wide sandy beach invite you to swim and cool down if necessary. At the lido and the tranquil marketplace you can get ice cream and something for the small appetite.

Through the picturesque Słubia valley

You leave the tranquil town again and approach the Mieszkowice forests and the Słubia Valley. A small river has created an idyllic valley with steep slopes and springs here in the Cedynia Landscape Park and quickly makes you forget about one or two potholes. The stream forms numerous meanders and gravelly shallows, where the beaver builds considerable castles. The picturesque gorge is overgrown with lime trees, oaks and hornbeams - it's fun to roll down towards the Oder!

Odra panorama and crossing without borders

Once you're back on the Oder, turn southeast onto the Zielona Odra cycle path on a quiet country road. Another decent climb before you should definitely aim for a short detour. At a memorial wall, it goes a few hundred meters to a former bunker stand, from where a fantastic view opens up across the river to the Oder-Spree lake district. We guess: up here you will feel real grandeur!

In Gozdowice, you will take the ferry back to Germany. If the hourly ferry named "Bez Granic - without borders" still needs a few minutes to depart, you can learn something about the role of the Oder crossing in the last world war in the small regional museum. On the Brandenburg side, Viadrus, the river god of the Oder, will greet you with a sculpture.

An enchanted secret on the Oder dike 

For a good part of the way, you will now follow the Oder-Neisse cycle path. At the very top of the dike, you can really work up a sweat. The Radlers Hof invites you to refresh yourself on a pretty farm. Tip: At tour km 54 at Gieshof turn left again to the Oder! Only in summer does a secret dam open up at low water - the path to the Ruschebuhne and to the island of Dieser. Where Berlin summer visitors used to go swimming on the Oder beach, you can now watch water birds, listen to the grills chirping or simply enjoy this enchanted place on the sandbank. 

Along the Old Oder back to Wriezen

Finally, you leave the Oder floodplain and it's back on the Oderbruchbahn cycle path, which here runs on quiet district roads, towards Neulewin. In the colonist village, 80 families were once resettled in the course of the draining of the Oderbruch in the 19th century. Today the local history room in the former Büdnerhaus tells about it. Those who have not yet made a culinary stop can take the detour to Altlewin: with its idyllic garden and rustic furnishings, the popular Alter Fritz inn welcomes hungry cyclists. Following the original course of the Oder River, your tour ends again in Wriezen.

Refreshment tips: 


  • Europe Bridge: Healthy food truck with homemade bigos on Polish side of Europabrücke (summer months).

  • Moryn: Snacks at the lido as well as pizza, ice cream and waffles at the market

  • Zelliner Loose near the Oder dike: Radlershof

  • Side trip to Altlewien: Alter Fritz

  • Wriezen: Pizza at the Ristorante "Juani

Extra tour tip:
