So where to go today? The very beginning of our today’s trip will take you to the most interesting road in the vicinity of Zittau running from Eichgraben and Lückendorf (point 1) to Oybin. It depends on our decision only whether you will go to the famous ruins of the castle and the monastery, or you will go straight to Jonsdorf and Großschönau (point 2). From there continue your ride on the No. 135 road to Spitzkunnersdorf, where you continue along the main road slightly to the right to the village and when leaving it at the roundabout turn slightly to the left and follow the roadsigns towards Niederoderwitz (point 3). There, cross the main No. 96 road and continue your ride straight along
the No. 128 road to Groβhennersdorf. The road becomes pleasantly curly, it makes the journey to be more entertaining. Cross the main road (No. 178) again and keep the No. 128 road up to Kunnersdorf (point 4). Turn left into the Bautzener street in the square with famous fountain. There is a good number of turns and bends on the road ahead of you and the road will take you to Kemnitz village
(point 5) after a few kilometres. At the park in Kemnitz turn right into the Hornstraße street. What about visiting the Agricultural Tractors Museum?
The road continues through Sohland am Rotstein to the outskirts of Reichenbach / Oberlausitz (point 6), where you can take the No. 6 road (towards Görlitz) for a while; then after riding about 1 km turn left into the An der Schanze street (No. 111 road). The road will take you to Weiβenberg, where you
will find the No. 4 main road crossroads. Ride straight through the crossroads and keep straight on
the No. 55 road to Gebelzig, Ober Prauske, Weigersdorf and Förstgen (point 7). There are plenty of curves on the road, every true biker should have fun on this road.
You will see a pond on the right and opposite to it there will be the Dorfstraße street you should ride in. The road will take you to the forest and after riding through it you will pass through the villages of Tauer and Zimpel. Then, at the farm, follow the turn to the right and follow the roadsigns towards Klitten (point 8). Here in the village you will come to the main road and turn left. And it’s only a few kilometres to the southern shores of popular Bärwalder See lake. There you can find not only beaches where you can enjoy a good swimming and sunbathing or just having relax, but having some refreshment, too . Just beyond the lake, you will find the No. 156 road and then turn right. After less than 2 kilometres this road will turn right (towards Bad Muskau), but you should continue your ride
straight ahead along the No. 108 road and pass the ponds by the beautiful curly road to Lohsa (point
9). There stick to the No. 108 road (slightly bending to the right) and beyond Weißkollm village turn right around the lakes. The road will take you to the village of Burg in a while; there you should take sharp turn right at the bus stop to ride to the Bernsteinsee lake. Then you will ride along northwest shores of the lake through Burghammer to Burgneudorf (point 10).
At the outskirts of the village, look for the right turn to the No. 130 road towards Schleife. There are further 13 kilometres of turns and pure joy ahead of you, till you arrive at Schleife (point 11), respectively to the part of Rohne village. There follow the turn to the right to Trebendorfer Weg. From there it is just a few hundred meters to the local attraction, to the Reinert ranch. There is a saloon with excellent cuisine, they offer horseback riding, but also quadbike rides which could
be attractive for the bikers and you can enjoy much more there. Your ride will continue from the ranch to the main road and then to the right to the Weiβwasser road. Cross the main No. 156 road and continue straight ahead along the No. 126 road, which will take you through beautiful countryside to the roundabout on the northern outskirts of Weiβkeiβel – follow it straight to Sagar (point 12). In front of you, there is the Lusatian Neisse making the natural border between Germany and Poland; you should follow the river along the No. 127 road. You will ride along the military
base and then its fence will be replaced by almost untouched landscape of previously closed -
to - public border area. Rothenburg (point 13) is the only larger village you will ride through there; ride straight ahead and continue your ride until you reach the bridge over the main No. 4 road and just beyond it the intersection with No. 115 road (point 14). Turn left there and the road takes you directly to the bypass of Görlitz. Follow carefully the roadsigns towards Zittau and the road will take you to the south of the town and then to the No. 99 road; that road will take you back to Zittau around the Berzdorfer See lake and through Ostritz (point 15).
