What to expect

This bicycle tour from Dresden to Prague connects two significant cultural-historical cities. Starting from the bizarre rocky landscapes of the Elbe Sandstone Mountains the tour leads you through the rural landscapes of the Czech Republic passing the lovely Elbe-towns like Litoměřice or Mělník to the "Golden city" of Prague.

In the last couple of years, on the Czech side the Elbe cycle path has continuously been extended and developed. This allows bikers to mostly cycle on the asphalted path, rarely have to make way through any roadways.

Please note: This cycle tour from Dresden to Prague can also be booked in the opposite direction.

This cycle trip is not recommendable for travellers with mobility impairments.

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.

Day 2: Dresden – Pirna/Bad Schandau (approx. 22/45 km)
You will start your bicycle tour along the Elbe River Cycle Path with a first highlight of the day: take your time to stroll through the gardens of Pillnitz Palace, the former summer residence of the royal Wettin family of Saxony. The park with its numerous trees, some of which are more than 200 years old, is regarded as a significant collection of rare and precious plants. From here the journey takes you to the so called 'gate of the Saxon Switzerland': Pirna.

Day 3: Pirna/Bad Schandau – Děčín (approx. 21/44 km)
Today the cycle path will take you along the Elbe past the Koenigstein fortress to Bad Schandau in the heart of Saxon Switzerland. After a few kilometers you leave Germany and continue in the Czech Republic. You will still see some bizarre rocky formations of the Saxon Switzerland before coming to Děčín. We recommend you to visit the local baroque castle, where also Frédéric Chopin went to search for inspiration.

Day 4: Děčín – Litoměřice (approx. 50 km)
From Děčín outwards, you will cycle through Ústí nad Labem and pass the ruin of castle Střekov which is situated atop the River. From here it is only a few kilometres to Litoměřice with its famous chalice house. Take a walk through the old town of Litoměřice to give your day the ideal ending.

Day 5: Litoměřice – Melnik (approx. 45 km)
Today’s cycle tour you should start with a visit of the former fortress and town Terezín only a few kilometres from Litoměřice. The Elbe cycle path leads you through the town of Roudnice before your tour continues to the centre of the bohemian wine growing area Mělník. From the castle in Mělník you can enjoy a marvellous view over the confluence of the two rivers Vltava and Elbe (Labe in Czech).

Day 6: Melnik – Prague (approx. 55 km)
The rest of the tour today the Vltava River will lead you all the way to the Capital of the Czech Republic. The “Golden city” has plenty to offer: Situated on both sides of the River Vltava, the highlights of Prague include the sixteen arches of the 14th century Charles Bridge, the Old Town Square and the irregular cobbled square with its famous Astronomical Clock.

Day 7: Stay in Prague
Use the day to discover Prague on your own. The historic centre is ideal for exploring by foot. You can visit Hradčany and their royal palace. And then just sit back and enjoy the friendly atmosphere in the shops, cafes and wine bars, which make Prague a delightful place to visit.

Day 8: Individual departure from Prague or transfer service to Dresden
After this eventful and unforgettable bike tour from Dresden to Prague you will now set out on your way home. You can of course always extend your journey with extra nights in Prague, Dresden or other overnight locations alont the Elbe Cycling Route. We will be pleased to arrange additional overnight stays 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.
