Long-distance routes and tour tips
This route is ideal for leisurely tours and has a number of places to explore along the way. It consists of eight circuits through the flat countryside of the Lower Fläming region and the Baruther glacial valley south of Berlin.
Flemish people settled here between the Elbe, Havel and Spree rivers in the 12th and 13th centuries, giving the region its name. Today, the area is more popular with cyclists and skaters who come to enjoy traffic-free fun on the broad asphalt paths. At the heart of the route is a circular tour covering just under 100 kilometres. It also has several shorter circuits, which are perfect for a tour divided into one-day stages. The swimming lakes and outdoor pools en route are great in the warm weather. There’s also plenty of variety on offer in the medieval towns and villages.
Terrain: the path for cyclists and inline skaters runs along several circuits away from traffic and is on asphalt throughout. The tracks are between two and three metres wide and there are only a few steep inclines.
Scenery: the route runs through a predominantly flat landscape with sandy dunes, the sparsely populated Baruther glacial valley and the Lower Fläming region. Fields and forests are typical features of the landscape.
