Glamorous start




After a short train ride, Bad Saarow welcomes you appropriately. The representative station building gives an idea of ​​how stylish it is in the spa and health resort. Your tour now starts in the direction of the Scharmützelsee and the historic lido. Take the Kurpark and the chic lake promenade with you at a walking pace. It's relaxed. You can finally breathe sea air. The holiday mood arises on the harbor promenade. Also take a look at the magnificent villas. The listed Villa Paolo in the Uferstraße is for many the most notable. And of course Fontane should not be missing either - striking sayings by Brandenburg's most famous poets are presented in the park of the same name.






 







On the west bank

Your tour continues south and Saarow Dorf. At the bathing area at the transition to the Alte Eichen peninsula, you should take a look over to the Kleiner Werl island. So many cormorants breed here. You can also observe various water birds from the rest area on the opposite Silbersee.

On a former railway line, the bike path now leads you through the forest and past the golf course. Those who have wider tires, who are not afraid of carrying a small passage and the natural path can also take the direct riverside path behind the roundabout. This is how you pass the ´Das Dorsch´ restaurant in Saarow Strand, which is known for its regional creations and the phenomenal view.






 







Scandinavian flair in Wendisch Rietz

When you arrive at the southern end of the lake, the seagulls will guide you back to the lake. You can take a look at Sweden or Finland with a detour to the Scandinavian-looking harbor area in Wendisch Rietz, where the typically colorful wooden houses on the water greet you. From a culinary point of view, a stop is also worthwhile: try the homemade lemonade in the artistic studio café, relax in the fisherman's house at the transition to the Glubigsee or stop by the Storkower fish cooperative. In the farm shop with smokehouse, there are regional fish from the Brandenburg Sea.






 







Quiet villages and beautiful swimming spots on the east bank

From Wendisch Rietz you follow the Oder-Spree-Tour for a while. Across meadows and you come to Diensdorf on the eastern side of the lake. Here the bank drops off steeply. Between the houses you can see the water flashing again and again and from the headland at the water hiking rest area there is the best view. Also interesting: the exhibitions in the old school barn and one village further, in Pieskow, the private manor house "Klein Sanssouci", the fairy tale forest and the church on the village green with a wooden altar from the 17th century.






 







Sundowners by the sea

Beach atmosphere comes up again on the beach in Cecilienpark. Back in Bad Saarow, the Bavarian-inspired Freilich am See offers you the opportunity to end the day with a sundowner or a light beer in the beer garden. Park your bike, put your feet up and enjoy the sunset over the Märkisches Meer! Cheers!
