This bicycle tour begins and ends at Burg im Spreewald tourist information centre. Start by taking a look at Burg local history parlour, a typical log cabin with a thatched roof that houses a small but excellent historical collection relating to the history of Burg. Before heading toward Schmogrow, you should enjoy the view of the unique Spreewald landscape from the 27-metre-high Bismarck Tower. The tour takes you along the river Spree, past green meadows and the auroch pastures by the renaturated River Spree, to Dissen, which is also called Storchendorf (“Stork Village”) due to its many stork nests. The enthusiastically maintained local history museum offers interesting insights into the customs and traditions of the Sorbs/Wends and is also home to a stork exhibition. The return journey is via Briesen, where you can take a break for a snack at the historic Spreewald railway station. You can finish off your cycling tour at Spreewald Therme – the thermal spas in Burg.
