What to expect

Your cycle tour on the Northern Elbe Cycle Path from Cuxhaven to Wittenberge takes you past thatched half-timbered houses with carved ceremonial gates and on through extensive orchards.

Start your Elbe Cycle Route tour on the wide sandy beaches of the North Sea, which not only invite you to swim but also to go for extensive mudflat walks. With a fresh North Sea breeze in your nose, you will then set off on the bike route: Hamburg with its imposing harbor and fish market will soon be reached. From the metropolis on the Elbe, you continue upriver along the Elbe cycle path through idyllic meadows, wide meadows and romantic towns to Wittenberge. On the way you can discover numerous animal and plant species.

The Elbe Cycle Path is excellently developed and signposted, so that the tours are relaxed and you often have the opportunity to discover interesting things to the left and right of the path.

Itinerary

Detailed tour description

Day 1: Individual arrival in Cuxhaven
Welcome to Cuxhaven, the place where the Elbe River meets the North Sea! After your individual arrival in the seaside health resort you should take a deep breath. Enjoy the fresh sea air. What about a walk along the North Sea coast or through the so-called “Wattenmeer”?

Day 2: Cuxhaven – Balje (approx. 40 km)
On your first bike tour along the Elbe River you will be passing through the fascinating protected landscape of the Lower Elbe with small thatched houses along the cycle path. After biking through the cities Otterndorf and Neuhaus you reach Balje, your today’s destination.

Day 3: Balje – Stade (approx. 70 km)
Passing by the towns Freiburg and Wischhafen, you will soon reach the “Kehdinger Land”. The Elbe cycle path here again guides you through protected terrain of outer dyke and with a little luck, you may get the opportunity to watch rare bird species. Today’s goal is the more than 1,000 year old city Stade, which has a beautiful, restorated old town. You can take a stroll here and enjoy the view of beautiful half-timbered houses.

Day 4: Stade – Hamburg (approx. 50 km)
Today, you will cycle through the Altes Land, a quiet oasis which is known to be the largest contiguous fruit-growing region in Germany. The Elbe River cycle path takes you past windmills, thousands of apple trees und picturesque fruit farms and after passing the town Jork, you will reach the Hanseatic City of Hamburg.

Day 5: Hamburg – Lauenburg (approx. 55 km)
Now that you have explored Hamburg, you will start your bike tour into the surroundings of this harbour city! From the Elbe metropolis, the first part of your cycle tour along the Elbe Cycle Path will take you through Geeshacht to the sailor city Lauenburg. The Elbe – here still very broad – winds its way through the flatland, dispersing into many smaller and larger tributaries.

Day 6: Lauenburg – Hitzacker (approx. 55 km)
Today you will bike through dreamy villages, wide floodplains and the beautiful region of the Wendland to Hitzacker – one of the most attractive cities on the German timbering lane. The historical old town, with its many timbering houses, invites for a stroll and perhaps a short stay.

Day 7: Hitzacker – Wittenberge (approx. 78 km)
On day 7 of your biking holidays, the Elbe River will accompany you on your way through small villages in the region of Wische, tranquil nature of Prignitz and past Lenzen, the gate to the Nature Paradise of the Elbe Valley. Cycling along the riverbank, you will continue your journey through the Wendland to Wittenberge. On your way, you will pass the former inner German borderland. Soon after that, Wittenberge will show on your horizon, well known for its many towers.

Day 8: Individual departure or transfer back to Cuxhaven
You can of course always extend your bike tour with extra nights in Hamburg, Wittenberge or other towns. We will be pleased to arrange additional accommodation for you.

Further information about our cycling holidays along the Elbe River Cycle Path

Cycle tours along Germany's most popular cycle path

Overwiev map of the Elbe River in GermanyThe Elbe flows through beautiful countryside. Its characteristic features include the towering Elbe Sandstone Massif, delightful riverbank meadows and impressive terrace vineyards. There are charming historical monuments along the river and lovely "old towns".

The Elbe, Germany's second largest river, flows through beautiful countryside. Its characteristic features include the towering Elbe Sandstone Massif, delightful riverbank meadows and impressive terrace vineyards in the region around Meissen. There are plenty of charming historical monuments along the river including magnificent castles, palaces and lovely, preserved, historical "old towns".

The cycle tours are fairly flat and follow the run of the river Elbe. The majority of the trails are in good condition and offer a wide range of cultural and leisure activities, making it ideal for travellers in every age group, for families and groups. The Elbe is one of the "slow" rivers. There is hardly any altitude, so it does not really matter whether you cycle upstream or downstream. However, the prevailing winds from the west and the countryside around the Elbe make the journey upstream preferable.
