From family-friendly to sporty-active. From the first spring green to the golden autumn. Cycling is one of the most popular sports and leisure activities in Saale-Unstrut. Along the Unstrut and Saale rivers as well as the Weisse Elster you have plenty of opportunities to pedal.
From the origin to the mouth. You don't have to cycle the whole 200 km of the Unstrut or the 400 km of the Saale cycle path to enjoy the river and the cycle pleasure. The two popular cycle paths are an impressive experience, even when used in stages. Start at Blütengrund near the cathedral city of Naumburg, where the Unstrut flows into the Saale, and let vineyards, castles and picturesque villages pass by. Many sections of the Saale-Unstrut cycle paths are particularly family-friendly, so that the youngsters will also enjoy cycling.
Along the water also runs the asphalt, 28 km long cycle path around the Geiseltalsee. For sporty and ambitious mountain bikers there is an additional 40 km long mountain bike route, which not only leads around the lake, but also offers ascents through vineyards and "rides" into the natural area.
