Lost-in-Brandenburg route

︎Brandenburg, Germany

The Lost-in-Brandenburg Loop is an easily accessible mixed surface overnight bikepacking route that covers the rural and forested north-east of Brandenburg. Exiting the Berlin metro area, the loop travels over the area's infamous sandy and cobbled doubletracks, weaving in bouts of gravel, mellow singletrack, and smooth tarmac. Get lost and find yourself in the endless pine forests and tiny towns seemingly stuck in time.

This route showcases the excellent off-pavement riding that is directly accessible from the urban island that is Berlin. Exiting the metropolitan area via park trails, urban forest paths and dedicated cycle ways, this route puts you on track of a 260km loop through the sparsely populated area of Märkisch-Oderland in the federal state of Brandenburg to the north-east of Berlin. You’ll encounter sights characteristic of this area in Eastern Germany–dusty double tracks bounded by blooming fields, cake stops in quaint towns, derelict rural architecture, waning remnants of the socialist GDR regime and–above all–sprawling dry pine forests thriving in the sandy soil interspersed by tiny lakes.
