    OK, I didn't see huge numbers of cyclists in Altenburg, but I didn't see huge numbers of motorists or pedestrians, either, since the streets were mostly quite empty.

    From Altenburg there are signposted bicycle routes leading in all directions, for instance to Eisenach (229 km to the west) and Gera (45 km).

    Bicycle rentals

    Peter Mende's bicycle shop

    The one place I know of for bicycle rentals in Altenburg is the Peter Mende bike shop on Gabelenzerstraße, just across from the Lindenau Museum and several blocks downhill from the railroad station.

    There are no bicycle rentals at the station itself.

    In addition to this shop in Altenburg, Peter Mende also has bicycle shops in the nearby towns of Meuselwitz and Zeitz.

    I arrived too late to rent a bicycle here, but I did have a chat with them as they were closing up, and came away with a favorable impression.

    There are currently two trains an hour from Leipzig to Altenburg.

    One is a regional express (RE) that takes forty minutes, stopping at four stations along the way. The other is a regional train (RB) that takes fifty-two minutes, stopping at all sixteen stations along the route.

    The main station in Altenburg is an imposing edifice that was built in 1876 during a period of prosperity and increasing rail traffic.

    This is the smalles airport I have ever been. The waiting hall is twice as big as my living room and the only shop in the airport has a shape of 1,50 m times 2 meters. The second picture shows you the complete waiting hall.
