Itinerary

Detailed tour description

Day 1: Individual arrival in Dresden
You arrive in the Florence of the Elbe, Dresden, which is beautifully located along the Elbe valley. Whether the famous Zwinger, the Semper Opera or the Court Church – a tour of the former royal residence by bicycle will take you past many sites.

Tip: We recommend an extra night in Dresden for a day trip to the Saxon Switzerland. You will get back by local train to Dresden (approx. 45 km)

Day 2: Dresden – Strehla (approx. 66 km)
The first leg of the bike tour along the Elbe river cycle trail will take you through the beautiful meadows of the Elbe valley. From far away you can already see the landmark of the city of Meissen: the impressive castle hill with the cathedral and the Albrechtsburg castle. A visit to the world-famous Meissen porcelain factory is also a must. On this stage of your bike tour you pass picturesque wine villages before you get to the City of Sports Riesa. Here the popular noodle producer is at home and in the pasta museum you will learn about the rich pasta shape. Should you be on a weekday in Riesa, even a glance at the current production is possible.

Day 3: Strehla – Torgau (approx. 40 km)
On the way along the Elbe river cycle path you will be enjoying the enchanting rural atmosphere of the Elbe town of Strehla. You cycle tour continues to Torgau, a Renaissance town featuring Schloss Hartenfels and the palatial church which is known as the first Protestant church of Germany and which was dedicated by Martin Luther.

Day 4: Torgau – Lutherstadt Wittenberg (approx. 68 km)
First you will have a ride passing through the floodplains of the river Elbe until Pretzsch. Today you will be staying in Wittenberg, a town which became famous through Martin Luther. As the historic, spiritual and cultural centre of Europe, Wittenberg was influenced by such important historical figures as Martin Luther, Philipp Melanchthon, Lucas Cranach the Elder and Lucas Cranach the Younger. In 1996 the Luther memorials were placed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

This bike tour can be shared by an extra night in Pretzsch (approx. 37 km/35 km). Price see extra nights (Category B).

Day 5: Lutherstadt Wittenberg – Dessau (approx. 37 km)
This leg will take you through the beautiful meadows of the Elbe and past the world-famous Woerlitzer Park and Gardens. The 100-hectare large park offers numerous attractions including islands, canals, temples and statues. With Dessau you will enter a town which played an important role for a new architecture style including a whole life philosophy occured in the 1920s, the so called "Bauhaus".

Day 6: Dessau – Magdeburg (approx. 78 - 88 km)
Between Barby and Magdeburg you will cycle across another biosphere reserve along the river Elbe giving home to lots of vulnerable species of birds. Magdeburg offers lots of rambling parkways where you can relax. Experience also the famous Cathedral and the Monastery.

Day 7: Magdeburg – Tangermünde (approx. 80 km)
Today you will pass the impressive and technical challenging construction of the waterway junction - a gigantic building project to conect the waterways of Hannover, Magdeburg and Berlin. Milestone of this cycling day will be the famous monastery of Jerichow. The Elbe river cycle path takes you further to Tangermünde. By walking through the town you will discover the traces of 1000 years of history. The most impressive building is the 24 meter high town hall with its opulent decorated front created in the 15th century.

Day 8: Tangermünde – Havelberg (approx. 50 km)
Today Elbe river cycle path takes you to Havelberg. Havelberg is another round village with half-timbered houses. Do not miss the Romanesque cathedral. 

Day 9: Havelberg – Wittenberge (approx. 38 km)
We recommend to make a break in the town Ruehstaedt. It is known for its big stork population. Every year in spring time about 70 storks turn back from their winter time overseas to live on roofs, pylons or towers. Wittenberge with its numerous towers can already be seen from a distance.

Day 10: Wittenberge – Hitzacker (approx. 78 km)
Recreative hours in untouched nature will define your cycling day. Only from time to time you will pass through dreamy villages.

Day 11: Hitzacker – Lauenburg (approx. 55 km)
You will pass through an unique landscape called "Wendland" which is characterized by a special form of settlement - the round villages. The landscape is flat and dominated by huge floodplains. They are a paradise for birds like storks, sea eagles or cranes. Lauenburg is an old skipper's town with a lot of beautiful restored half-timbered houses from the 16th and 17th century.

Day 12: Lauenburg – Hamburg (approx. 55 km)
Most of the time you will cycle along the Elbe riverbanks. Before entering the metropole you will pass a calm area with small villages. You can see Hamburg already from far away. Do not miss the opportunity to take part in a roundtrip by boat. You will get an impression of Hamburg harbor seen from the water with its huge ocean liners and container terminals.

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.
