What to expect

This bicycle tour from Prague to Dresden connects two significant cultural and historical cities. Capture the flair of the golden city Prague before you set out on your way through the rural landscapes of the Czech Republic to Germany.

Over the last few years, the Czech side of the Elbe Cycle Path has continuously been extended and developed. Therefore, you will cycle mostly on the paved cycle path, rarely using country roads with light or moderate traffic. Look forward to the pretty Elbe-towns such as Mělník or Litoměřice before you reach the bizarre and rocky landscape of the Elbe Sandstone Mountains and, finally, Dresden - the 'Florence of the Elbe'.

Please note: This cycle tour from Prague to Dresden 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 Prague
Prague can easily be reached by airplane or train. If you wish to travel by car, we recommend to drive to Dresden and to use our convenient transfer service from Dresden to Prague. For the duration of the tour you can leave your car in the car park next to our partner hotel.

Day 2: Individual Sightseeing in Prague
Situated on both sides of the river Vltava, the ‘Golden city’ has plenty to offer. Visit the Old Town Square and watch the Astronomical Clock. Walk over the famous Charles Bridge with its sixteen arches to the Hradčany. You can easily explore the historic centre by foot and the friendly atmosphere in the shops, cafes and wine bars make Prague a delightful place to visit.

Day 3: Prague – Melnik (approx. 55 km)
Today you will start your bicycle tour from Prague to Dresden. After breakfast, you will leave the Czech capital and cycle along the Vltava River to the centre of the bohemian wine growing area Mělník. The castle in Mělník is the perfect place to watch the confluence of the two rivers Vltava (Moldau) and Elbe (CZ: Labe).

Day 4: Melnik – Litoměřice (approx. 45 km)
From now on the Elbe will guide you all the way to Dresden. Today's bicycle tour will take you via Roudnice to the former fortified town of Terezín. From here it is only a few kilometres to Litoměřice with its famous chalice house. End the day with a stroll through the charming old town with its Gothic, Baroque and Renaissance style buildings.

Day 5: Litoměřice Děčín (approx. 50 km)
During today’s cycle tour, you will ride through Ústí nad Labem, past the ruin of castle Střekov and continue along the Elbe to Děčín. In Děčín we recommend that you visit the baroque castle on top of a rocky hill offering wonderful river views and where Frédéric Chopin went to search for inspiration.

Day 6: Děčín – Bad Schandau/Pirna (approx. 21/44 km)
Leaving Děčín, you will be cycling on the left bank of the river and soon reach Germany. Now the bizarre rock formations of the Elbe Sandstone Mountains rise to the left and right of the Elbe. Enjoy the fairy-tale like landscape while riding on your bike.

Day 7: Bad Schandau/Pirna – Dresden (approx. 45/22 km)
The last leg of your cycling holidays on the Elbe Cycle Path first takes you past the Königstein fortress and the Bastei viewing rock. Take your time to enjoy the impressions of the picturesque Elbe valley before you continue your journey. Shortly before reaching Dresden visit the famous Pillnitz Palace & Park and walk through the tranquil gardens. From here it is only a short distance along the cycle path until you finally reach Dresden. The historic town centre is perfect for a relaxed evening walk and for having a pleasant farewell dinner in one of the many local restaurants.

Day 8: Individual departure from Dresden
After a delicious breakfast and with lots of wonderful memories of your cycling trip along the Elbe River, you will start your journey back home. Feel free to ask us for spending some additional nights in Dresden or other towns along the Elbe Cycle Path. We will be delighted to arrange the accommodations for you. If you have to get back to Prague, we can offer you our convenient transfer service.

All in all, the Prague to Dresden bike tour was one of the best experiences we have had so far in life! We were four days ahead of the floods that washed away the bike trails, the weather was not great but all this was largely insignificant all things considered. The people, atmosphere, history, culture, and scenery were all unbelievably special. The accommodations were excellent, breakfasts satisfying, the bike and equipment exceptional, services were near perfect and the instructions/maps given us left little doubt as to our progress, what to do, where to go, etc. Wow, what an exciting trip!!!!! I would highly recommend your company. Best wishes from Vancouver Island - Canada

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.
