Itinerary

Detailed tour description

Day 1: Individual arrival in Wittenberge
Wittenberge is the most populous town in this area. On your day of arrival you can visit the town museum in the Old Castle, the city’s oldest residential house. And all railway fans should have a really great time at the biggest railway museum of the province Brandenburg.

Day 2: WittenbergeHitzacker (approx. 78 km)
Recreative hours in untouched nature will define your cycling day. Only from time to time you will pass through dreamy villages.

Day 3: HitzackerLauenburg (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 4: LauenburgHamburg (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 5: HamburgStade (approx. 50 km)
Now that you have explored Hamburg, you will continue your bike tour into the surroundings of this harbour city! The Elbe cycle path guides you through the Altes Land, a quiet oasis surrounded by meadows and countless small streams and known to be the largest contiguous fruit-growing region in Germany. Windmills, small bridges and characteristically constructed row houses still remind the viewer of Dutch ancestors. Passing by thousands of apple trees and picturesque fruit farms, your way leads you through Jork and Steinkirchen. Today’s goal is Stade, which is more than a thousand years old and awaits you with a beautifully restorated old town. We recommend you to take a look at the timbered houses during a stroll.

Day 6: StadeBalje (approx. 70 km)
Today, you cross Wischhafen and Freiburg which lie in the Kehdinger Land. You now cycle again through protected outer dyke terrain. With a little luck, you may be able to watch rare bird species.

Day 7: BaljeCuxhaven (approx. 40 km)
During the last day of your cycle holiday, you keep following the Elbe dykes past beautiful nature reserves. Breathe in the fresh North Sea breeze and enjoy the view of small thatched houses along the way. You cross Neuhaus and Otterndorf to reach the seaside health resort Cuxhaven. Find out whose ship “Alte Liebe” lies sunken here and what’s meant by the expressions “Kugelbake” and “Semaphor”.

Day 8: Individual departure
You can of course always extend your bike tour with extra nights in Cuxhaven or other towns. 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.
