The palaces and residences along this route through the Märkisch Oderland region take you back to the time of Prussian pomp and splendour.
This long-distance cycle route, awarded four stars for quality, traces a figure of eight through the Märkisch Oderland countryside as it links a series of palatial buildings, many of which are nestled in beautiful parks. Of particular note are Neuhardenberg Palace, Schloss Gusow and Beeskow moated castle. In between, you ride along the roads as the lords and ladies once did in their carriages, enjoying the scenery offered by the Oderbruch marshland and the many lakes. So plenty of attractions along the way before your thoughts return to the present day.
