The Zuckerbahnradweg - a special kind of cycling experience

Very scenic, it leads along the old railway line from Zeitz to Stöben near Camburg. Again and again shady sections alternate with open countryside.
The Zuckerbahnradweg is the networker among the cycle paths. In Zeitz it is possible to change to the Elsterradweg and in Stöben near Camburg the connection to the Saaleradweg.

Between Kretzschau and Osterfeld, part of the Saale-Unstrut-Elster cycle route runs along the Zuckerbahn cycle path. This also provides a connection to the Unstrut cycle path.
With the RECARBO-Kohlradweg from Kretzschau which also runs on the Saale-Unstrut-Elster-Radacht, a connection to the Mondsee, to Hohenmölsen and further to the Saaleradweg to Weißenfels is possible.
In Osterfels itself you have the possibility to be spoiled gastronomically or, in good weather, to make a detour to the Natural swimming pool to make. 
The advantage of this cycle path is obvious - its almost infinite combination possibilities with other cycle paths.
A detour from the Zuckerbahnradweg to Schkölen offers the possibility of the cycle route "Renewable Energies" to the Saaleradweg in Würchhausen and the Elsterradweg near Crossen. Furthermore to Eisenberg to the popular Thuringian mill cycle track and to Dorndorf to the Saaleradweg. 
Of course, culture is not neglected - because in Zeitz, Moritzburg Castle, the castle park and the briquette factory Herrmannschacht attract visitors. In Droyßig there is a castle with a castle church and its own bear enclosure.
With 36 km, the Zuckerbahnradweg is not too long but inspires with "1000" possibilities for planning round and route routes.
 
The Zuckerbahn cycle path is asphalted throughout and is therefore also suitable for bikes with narrow tyres.
Several information boards (with cycle map for orientation) and covered rest areas are located directly along the cycle path. Clear signposting with place and distance information along the cycle path.

The Zuckerbahn cycle path has a low gradient, max. 3%.
