What to expect

The rivers Elbe and Havel connect the lively harbour-metropolis Hamburg with the German capital Berlin. On the bicycle tour along the two rivers you will pass tranquil floodplains, sleepy villages and charming half-timbered towns. From Hamburg to Wittenberge you will cycle along the Elbe River and then you will follow the Havel River to Berlin.

Along the Havel you will experience the extensive landscape of the Westhavelland Natural Reserve. Passing through the cities Brandenburg and Werder, you will reach Potsdam with its unique Palace and Park Sanssouci. Having crossed the large Wannsee Lake by ferry, you will soon reach Berlin-Spandau. From here you will follow the Spree River Cycle Path right into Berlin’s city centre.

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

Itinerary

Detailed tour description

Day 1: Individual arrival in Hamburg
After your arrival in Hamburg, explore the Hanseatic city either on a boat trip through the harbour or take a walk along the jetties.

Day 2: Hamburg – Lauenburg (approx. 55 km)
On the first stage of your tour you will cycle on dykes along the Elbe to Lauenburg. The old shipping town is studded with half-timbered houses from the 16th and the 17th century.

Day 3: Lauenburg – Hitzacker (approx. 55 km)
Today’s cycle tour through sleepy villages and the Elbe Floodplain UNESCO Biosphere Reserve with its largely untouched fluvial landscape will lead you to Hitzacker. The town’s historic centre with numerous half-timbered houses is picturesque situated on an island and invites you for a stroll.

Day 4: Hitzacker – Wittenberge (approx. 78 km)
On your fourth day you will continue to ride through the peaceful Elbe floodplains. Enjoy the tranquillity and wildlife along the way. You will also pass the former inner German borderland. Soon after that, Wittenberge will appear on the horizon, well known for its many towers.

Note: If today’s cycle tour is too long for you, we can split it into two legs. Just enquire for an individual itinerary.

Day 5: Wittenberge – Havelberg (approx. 38 km)
After leaving Wittenberge you will cycle on dykes along the banks of the Elbe to Havelberg. The town is situated at the river Havel. Visit the city’s impressive cathedral in the Romanesque and Gothic style made of red-brick.

Day 6: Havelberg – Rathenow (approx. 53 km)
From today on your tour continues along the Havel River Cycle Path passing green fields and small villages. You will finish the stage in the ‘town of optics” Rathenow. We recommend a visit at the Optics Museum and the Optic Park.

Day 7: Rathenow – Stadt Brandenburg (approx. 65 km)
Today you should pack your swimwear because the cycle path will lead through the lake region north of the city Brandenburg. The city itself is scattered over several islands and peninsulas worth exploring.

Day 8: Stadt Brandenburg – Potsdam (approx. 60 km)
At the beginning of the stage, you will cycle on dykes along the Havel through vast landscape. Allow some time to visit the town Werder situated on an island and the Palace Caputh with its garden. In the afternoon the idyllic waterfront of the Lake Templin will guide you to Potsdam.

Day 9: Potsdam – Berlin Mitte (approx. 50 km)
On the last stage of your cycle tour, you will cross the Glienicke Bridge first and find yourself in the German capital – Berlin. Continuing the tour you will take the ferry across the Wannsee Lake (costs not included) and then ride along the Spree Cycle Path right into Berlin’s city centre.

Day 10: Individual departure
Take your time to review your memories of the journey along the Elbe and Havel before departure. You are welcome to prolong your cycling holidays with additional nights, e.g. in Hamburg or other towns along the route from Hamburg to Berlin. We will be delighted to 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.
