Grenzerfahrungen Gallery – Part One
Markus Stitz documents his self-supported cycling journey along the European Green Belt. Born and bred in Germany, Markus travelled 700km along the former Iron Curtain on a gravel bike through the federal states of Thuringia, Lower Saxony, Hesse, Bavaria and Saxony in October 2020, shortly after the 30th anniversary of the German reunification. ‘Grenzerfahrungen’ (Borderline Experiences) launches the Iron Curtain Gravel Trail. Read more about Markus’ experience including a film, at this link.
