Cycling along the Trail of the German Language

Starting from Köthen, we follow this tour along the Trail of the German language through the world heritage region of Anhalt-Dessau-Wittenberg. On the "Euro-Route R1" we cycle from Köthen through the Eike-von-Repgow-town Reppichau to Dessau. The tour continues via Elbe and Mulde cycle route through Vockerode, Wörlitz and the picturesque flood plains of the Elbe river to Wittenberg. Afterwards we follow the Kohle | Dampf | Licht (German for: Coal | Steam | Light) cycle route, which leads us past the lakes of the Düben Heath, which were created by the mining industry, to Gräfenhainichen and the book town Mühlbeck-Friedersdorf.
