Cyclists and hikers are recommended to go on a circuit tour from CottbusService (Stadthalle Cottbus) via Fürst-Pückler-Park and Branitz Palace>Kastanienallee>Kirschallee>Dissenchen district to Merzdorf. The final destination is the observation tower there. Directly by the lakeside there is a path to the inlet structure. For the way back we suggest the route from Lakoma to Saspow and then along the River Spree to the city centre. On the way, a stop at the Spreewehrmühle is recommended with its restaurant and museum.
