sz-bike is a fully automatic bike rental system of Sächsische Zeitung, operated by nextbike. Rental is possible around the clock, all days of the week.
Partnered with Sächsische Zeitung and DVB, sz-bike began running in April 2014. Whether for daily use or for discovering the city, the rental bikes offer an optimal addition to bus and train. The bikes can be returned at any public spot within the city centre’s Flex Zone (26 Ring). Outside of the Flex Zone returns are only possible at official sz-bike stations, as seen on the map.
Rental is possible by phone and via the app, as usual. The bikes also come with an on-board computer. Simply place your customer card on it and press Rent. The sz-bike customer cards can be ordered here. You need to know the intersection of the return spot when returning the bike.
