This route passes through small villages leading to the historic location of Brody. The castle there in its current shape was erected by the Count Heinrich von Brühl, prime minister of August the Strong, elector of Saxony and King of Poland. The castle and grounds were owned by the Brühl family until 1945. The route passes the villages of Sękowice, Polanowice, and Grabice, leading to Luboszyce. In Luboszyce there is a neo-Gothic castle from the 19th century, which today is privately owned. Nearby there is a landscape park that was created in the 18th and 19th centuries. Here grow common oaks with circumferences of 3 to 5 metres. Going on further via Węgliny you reach Suchodół, located by the lake of the same name. Just before Brody, visitors can climb the lookout tower in Jeziory Dolne and visit the Woods and Nature Museum. In Brody itself you can admire the huge castle grounds as well as the complex of the almost originally preserved town centre. Today the castle is a ruin, and the so-called cavalier houses have been renovated.
The way back to Gubin leads on natural trails through the idyllic landscape, via Koło, Wierzchno, Koperno, and Pleśno.
