Itinerary

Detailed tour description

Day 1: Individual arrival in Magdeburg
Welcome to Magdeburg – the capital of Saxony-Anhalt! This old city has many tales to tell. The local historical monuments and building will satisfy your curiosity. For example the Magdeburg Dome, symbol of the city, or the12th or 13th century fortresses surrounding the old town will transfer you to another time!

Day 2: Magdeburg – Dessau (approx. 78 - 88 km)
As you are cycling along the river Elbe, notice the purity of the surrounding nature! This UNESCO protected area - the Biosphere Reserve of the Middle Elbe – contains the largest interconnected water meadow area of Middle Europe and includes the Elbe floodplains as a unique biotope which serves as a shelter for many endangered species. The reserve also contains Woerlitzer Park. This is the oldest landscape park and one of the first and largest English parks in continental Europe. Your last stop will be the city of Dessau. Explore the local ‘Bauhaus’ architecture and visit the Bauhaus Collage or Museum.

Day 3: Dessau – Lutherstadt Wittenberg (approx. 37 km)
On your second bike tour along the Elbe River you will pass the Biosphere Reserve for a few more kilometers before you reach the beautiful City Lutherstadt Wittenberg. There are many exciting places you can go to. A fun and relaxing way to spend the rest of the day is a visit to either the Alaris butterfly park, the NABU Center "Im Stadtwald" or the local zoo. If you are in for a more cultural experience, you can visit Wittenberg’s 14th century Reformation Church, the House of Lucas Cranach or Martin Luther, or the one-hundred-waters Luther-Melanchthon-Gymnasium. A perfect ending to the day offers Luthersbrunnen – local restaurant offering regional specialties.

Day 4: Lutherstadt Wittenberg – Torgau (approx. 68 km)
On the fourth day of your bicycle holidays you will be passing through the floodplains of the River Elbe until you reach the city of Pretzsch. The 16th century renaissance castle of Pretzsch offers itself as an ideal location for a snack. After you have left Pretzsch, you will bike approx. 20 more kilometers until you reach the border to Saxony and from there you will bike along the Elbe all the way to Torgau.

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

Day 5: Torgau – Strehla (approx. 40 km)
Passing by the villages hemming the River Elbe, one worth paying a visit is Belgern. The main attraction here is the city hall, painted in vermilion, guarded by the statue "Roland of Belgern". Once you have left the village, you will continue along the River Elbe until you reach Strehla. Besides the Castle and the old town hall of Strehla, you can visit the adorable zoo of small animals, nourishing raccoons, mini pigs, chipmunks and many more.

Day 6: Strehla – Dresden (approx. 66 km)
If you have decided to spend your night in Strehla, we recommend you pay a visit to Riesa, renowned for its steel industry and sports. Biking further along the Elbe, you will pass by lovely wine villages until you reach Meissen, a highlight of the today’s bike tour. The city of porcelain welcomes you in its whole noble beauty. With the castle Albrechtsturm, the porcelain manufactory, the late gothic city hall and many more, the city Meissen is annually visited by hundreds of thousands of people. Follow the River Elbe from Meissen and you will soon reach the town of Radebeul. This wine, mansion and garden city, with its eight historical village centers and two residential neighborhoods, is located directly on Saxony’s wine. Your final destination for today is Dresden, known as the Florence of the Elbe.

Day 7: Dresden – Bad Schandau (approx. 45 km)
Before continuing your tour you should visit the famous historical centre of Dresden. 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. Your today’s bicycle tour along the Elbe River Cycle Path leads you to 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 along the Elbe past the Koenigstein fortress to Bad Schandau in the heart of Saxon Switzerland.

Day 8: Bad Schandau – Litoměřice (approx. 70 km)
On this day trip along the Elbe cycle path you leave Germany and continue in the Czech Republic. You will still see some bizarre rocky formations of the Saxon Switzerland before coming to Decin. We recommend you visit the local baroque castle, where also Frédéric Chopin went to search for inspiration. From Děčín outwards, you will cycle through Ústí nad Labem and pass by 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 of the day.

Day 9: 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 10: 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 11: 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 12: Individual departure from Prague
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 along this cycle route. We will be pleased to arrange additional accommodation 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.
