Detailed tour description

Day 1: Individual arrival in Prague
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 2: Individual sightseeing in Prague
Today you can also visit Hradčany and their royal palace. The historic centre is ideal for exploring by foot, and the friendly atmosphere in the shops, cafes and wine bars make it a delightful place to visit. You can, of course, also lend your bicycles already for this day and take a ride through Prague by bike. 

Day 3: PragueMelnik (approx. 55 km)
Today you will start your bicycle tour from Prague to Magdeburg. After breakfast, you will leave the Czech capital and cycle along the Vltava River to the centre of the bohemian wine growing area Mělník. From where the castle stands in Mělník you can enjoy a marvellous view over the confluence of the two rivers Vltava and Elbe ("Labe" in Czech). From here you can also observe further course of the Elbe Cycle Path, on which you will continue your tour.

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.
