Potsdam in a different way
Potsdam is an ideal destination for cycling enthusiasts due to its well-developed cycle paths. Various cycle paths lead past the charming surroundings with their countless sights. The city with its beautiful corners is best explored by bike - past the Marstall, the Mosque, Sanssouci Palace, the New Chambers, the New Palace and of course the quarters "Dutch Quarter" or "Russian Colony".
Rent a bike and go
Many hotels offer their guests the possibility of renting bicycles. In addition, there are rental stations at the Griebnitzsee train station and at Potsdam's main train station, and for short-term rentals, PotsdamRad/Nextbike offers a good range of rental bikes.
Route „Alter Fritz”
The "Alter Fritz" tour, which is marked with the "F1" signs, stretches over 17 kilometres. You can "take in" almost all the important sights on this tour - the Marstall, the Mosque, Sanssouci Palace, the New Chambers, the New Palace and of course the historic quarters.
Panoramic bike tour
The panoramic bike tour is just as charming. This 13-kilometre tour winds through Potsdam's city centre via the Pfingstberg and Cecilienhof Palace, through the New Garden and Babelsberg Park. Again and again, exciting sightlines and panoramas open up for pausing.
Cycling tours in the Potsdam environs

Wall path along the old border
If you want to follow in the footsteps of German-German history, you can follow the course of the Wall through Potsdam and Berlin by bike. You can discover the remains of the old border fortifications by bike. One stop on the 160-kilometre-long circular cycle route is Potsdam. For about 15 kilometres, you cycle through the former border area of Brandenburg's capital city.
Around Lake Schwielow
This short and varied circular tour takes us from Potsdam around Lake Schwielow and Lake Templin. From the second residence of the Prussian king, we pass natural stretches of shore, historic buildings and sights such as Caputh and Petzow castles.
On the trail of Theodor Fontane
The "FONTANE-RAD" cycle route follows in the footsteps of Theodor Fontane, who is synonymous with the exploration of the Mark like no other. The route takes you to the places and landscapes in Havelland and the Ruppiner Seenland that served as real-life models for his main work "Wanderungen durch die Mark Brandenburg".
