Itinerary

Detailed tour description

Day 1: Individual arrival in Dresden
You arrive in the ‘Florence of the Elbe’ which is beautifully situated along the Elbe valley. Use the rest of the day for a walk along the river or through the Baroque town centre to be enchanted by the city’s historical flair.

Day 2: Stay in Dresden or day trip to Bad Schandau (approx. 45 km)
Today you have time to explore Dresden’s many sights and attractions such as the famous Frauenkirche, the Zwinger Palace or the Semper Opera House.

Our tip: Or you make a trip to the Saxon Switzerland Region with its bizarre rock formations. Take the local train to Bad Schandau (ticket not included) and then cycle back to Dresden along the Elbe River passing sights such as the Fortress Königstein, the Bastei Bridge and the Pillnitz Palace & Park.

Day 3: Dresden – Meissen (approx. 30 km)
On the first stage of the tour along the Elbe River Cycle Path you will pass the town Radebeul which is famous for its vineyards. Continuing your journey you will soon 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 a must. In the evening enjoy a glass of local wine because you are in the heart of one of the smallest yet most distinguished wine growing regions of Germany.

Day 4: Meissen – Riesa/Strehla (approx. 28 km/36 km)
Today’s cycle tour will take you along picturesque wine villages to Riesa, the city of sports. The town is also famous for its pasta production. In the transparent noodle centre you can gain insight into the modern food production of the second largest pasta manufacturer in Germany.

Day 5: Riesa/Strehla – Torgau (approx. 48 km/40 km)
Continuing the tour along the Elbe River Cycle Path you will soon reach Strehla where you will be enjoying the enchanting rural atmosphere of the Elbe town. Today’s destination is Torgau, a Renaissance town featuring Schloss Hartenfels and the Palace Church known as the first German Protestant church.

Day 6: Torgau – Lutherstadt Wittenberg (approx. 68 km) 
After leaving Torgau you will cycle through the Elbe’s floodplains and reach Wittenberg, the starting point of Martin Luther’s Reformation process 500 years ago. Take a walk through the historic centre and visit the various memorial sights dedicated to Martin Luther and Philip Melanchthon, which were added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1996.

The stage can be divided by booking an extra night in Pretzsch (approx. 33 km/approx. 35 km). For prices see extra nights (Cat. B).

Day 7: Individual departure from Lutherstadt Wittenberg or transfer service to Dresden
After a memorable cycle tour from Dresden to Wittenberg, you will start your journey back home. You are welcome to prolong your journey with some additional nights, e.g. in Dresden or other towns along the route. We will gladly arrange the accommodations 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.
