#1368314 - 30.12.18 22:19 Polen: neue touristische Radrouten in Westpommern

Hallo aus Polen :),

did you know, Friends, that the Polish province of West Pomerania put into service the first long sections of its new bicycle route network?

The entire network will consist of four routes with a length of 1120 kilometers. The most popular will be Velo Baltica - of course - running along EuroVelo 10 and 13. The remaining routes of the West Pomeranian network include, among others, the Blue Velo (Polish counterpart of Oder-Neisse Radweg) and the Western Lakelands Route (Trasa Pojezierzy Zachodnich).

The new cycling route starts right at the bridge in Siekierki, runs through Moryn to Trzcinsko-Zdrój and then turns north to Gryfino. About 60-70% are cycling routes on the former Prussian railway lines.

Because these are not very popular areas among Polish tourists, it is worth looking for accommodation and meals in advance - I am writing about several possibilities in the article on my website:


The next works and development of the bicycle route network in Western Pomerania are planned for the coming years. The Western Lakelands Route will run through Zlocieniec, Borne-Sulinowo to Szczecinek. Blue Velo - up to the Baltic Sea.

Current information appears on the fanpage on Facebook:


And this is the map of the new bicycle network - the purple color means the sections completed and put into use:


These are some pictures from the Gryfino-Siekierki route from November this year.

One of the important elements of the development of West Pomeranian routes will be the renovation of the bridge in Siekierki and making it accessible to cyclists and pedestrians. This is going to happen until 2021.

Hi Szymon,

this is very good news, at least for the large number of cyclist in Berlin. schmunzel We travel quite often to Poland. It is not so far away from here. Thank you for the information!

We have done two big tours (big means at least 5 people, often more) to Moryn, two to Szczecin, one to Gorzow Wielkopolski and a countless number to Slubice and Osinow Dolny in the last years. During the tours to Szczecin, we used the short bicycle lane on the former railway tracks from Swobnica via Banie to Borzym. But near Borzym it stopped suddely in a forest, leading the riders on a very bad cobblestone road. How far is the asphalt right now? Does it extend to Gryfino already? I have not bee there for 2 years.

Your pictures show a signpost for Gryfino (6) and Szczecin (37). Thus, I assume, the way is complete now?

The opening of the bridge at Siekierki was frequently announced in German newspapers a couple of years ago. It was open for German and Polish officials for one day, and there was a short film in local TV. But then nothing happened... This bridge would make the way to Moryn more attractive. On the German side it has direct connection to the Oderbruchbahn cycle way (and hence, also to Berlin).

The GPS track "blue velo" on your homepage - is that something still planned? Or can this track be cycled as it is?

Have a nice New Year! bier

I would like to invite you to any of our tours, the next ones will be on 5.1.19 and 19.1.19 (unfortunaltely I will not be there for both tours, but there will eb other cyclists from this forum...). You can also come to Berlin and drink a beer with us. bier

Unterwegs in Deutschland

Hello Szymon,
this seems to be good news. Not long ago, I went with Sabine, my wife, on a tour from Krakow along the "via regia" with the little workaround of the region of Zakopane to Katowice and all the way to Breslaw. The quality of the descripted "velo route" was sometimes rather a wish than a real bicycle way.

Nevertheless did we like your country and your fellow polish people very much.

Happy new year, Jakob

Dear Szymon,

Since my father was born in Slovakia (close to Spišská Nová Ves), I have also visited Poland several times and I also had cycled there. I will certainly return to both Slovakia and Poland and explore new regions by bicycle. Thank you for your information.

Happy New Year!
Gruß, Arnulf

Dear Szymon (and all),

thank you very much indeed for the recommendation - I took the chance to check out the new route between Siekierki and Gryfino last weekend.
It's really good by all standards and was very enjoyable (with the notable exception of some rather bumpy kilometers after Trzcinsko-Zdroj). I was also pleasantly surprised to see that the new route is being actively used by tourists and locals alike.

While it is true that it can be a problem to find a warm meal along the route, there's still enough supermarkets with comfortable opening hours not to let you starve. It also looks like the commentator on your website was right (if I understood correctly) about a few rooms being available for overnight stays in the centre of Trzinsko-Zdroj.

I can't wait to see the bridge open and connect it to the Oderbruchbahn-Radweg...

All the best,

Hi Szymon,

just found your post and am trying to revive this thread! ;-)

Last weekend, I cycled across the Odra at Siekierki and was astonished by the superb quality of the veloroute. We stopped at Moryn and cycled back to Berlin.

Considering to extend these tours in summer, I was wondering where and how to get the .gpx data for the routes? Are these available?

Best wishes from Berlin,

Hi Nicolas

although summer has gone now: there is a downloadable gpx in the first link provided by Szymon, maybe it will still come in useful on the future.
