The river Neisse rises in Nová Ves in the Czech Republic, but the cycle route ventures as far as Szczecin Bay, following almost the entire length of the German-Polish border. Attractions along the way include the old quarter in Görlitz and Prince Pückler's country park at Bad Muskau. The town of Guben in Germany and Gubin in Poland were a single entity until 1945, when the border was established between them. From here, the cycle route continues to Eisenhüttenstadt and Frankfurt an der Oder, before crossing the Oderbruch marshland and the Lower Oder Valley National Park. Near Mescherin, the Oder proceeds into Poland, while the cycle path in Germany veers off towards Ueckermünde. Terrain: mainly asphalt route along the banks of the Neisse and Oder rivers, mostly car free. Detours across the border into Poland are possible at numerous points. The route is not consistently signposted. Scenery: riverscapes, shady forests and hills along the Neisse river, broad meadows along the Oder river, nature conservation areas, the Lower Oder Valley National park and Szczecin Bay.
