Long-distance routes and tour tips
From the buzzing German capital to the tranquil town of Dahme: this four-star premium ADFC route links Berlin with the various destinations for excursions and holidays to the south of the city.
The tour begins in Köpenick on the outskirts of Berlin, before moving on to the ‘cradle of German radio’, Königs Wusterhausen. At the residence there, you are whisked back to the era of Friedrich Wilhelm I of Prussia. In Prieros you arrive at the Dahme-Heideseen nature reserve. Woodland and lakes are the dominant features here. In Brand you can cool off at the Tropical Islands water park. The tour continues through the Dahme-Mühlental valley to medieval Dahme. Here you meet inline skaters on the ‘Flaeming Skate’ route. Your tour, however, ends south of Dahme in Kolpien at the source of the river.
Terrain: this largely flat route runs on asphalt for the most part, though there are some paved sections. Traffic volumes are very low.
Scenery: the cycle route runs alongside or near the Dahme river through lakeland scenery, large expanses of woodland and interesting towns with historical buildings.
