The best way to explore the places associated with the bishops is by bike. A premium cycle route, the Bishops Tour begins in Havelberg, the cradle of Prignitz, and ends in Wittstock where the bishops' rule came to an end in the 16th century. The route through the flat countryside is lined with pilgrimage sites, bishop's palaces and small towns with centuries of history. Naturally, there are also plenty of attractions without a religious background on or near the route, such as the narrow-gauge railway museum or Hoppenrade country park. Terrain: a well-planned route that does justice to its theme with many episcopal highlights, including ancient bishop's castles, important pilgrimage sites and centuries-old little towns. Traffic volumes are low. Scenery: away from big towns and busy roads, predominantly through flat agricultural land, unspoilt oak, beech and pine forests, heathland with small rivers.
