What to expect

On this bicycle holidays you will have the opportunity to cycle through most beautiful parts of Germany. The bike tour along the Elbe river from Magdeburg to Hamburg will lead you through three different Nature Reserves, many historical cities and countless charming little villages.

The bike 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.

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

This trip is not recommendable for travellers with mobility impairments.

Itinerary

Detailed tour description

Day 1: Individual arrival at Magdeburg
Experience the Cathedral, the Monastery and stroll in the footsteps of the inventor Otto von Guericke. Magdeburg also offers lots of rambling parkways like the "Elbauenpark" and the "Rothehornpark" where you can relax.

Day 2: 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.

Note: If today’s cycle tour is too long for you, we can split it into two cycle tours. Please ask for your individual itinerary.

Day 3: 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 to visit the Romanesque cathedral.

Day 4: 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 5: 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.

Note: If today’s cycle tour is too long for you, we can split it into two cycle tours. Please ask for your individual itinerary.

Day 6: 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 7: 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. Don' t miss the opportunity to take part in a roundtrip by boat. You will get an impression of Hamburg harbour seen from the water with its huge ocean liners and container terminals.

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