Itinerary

Detailed tour description

Day 1: Individual arrival in Hamburg

Day 2: Hamburg – Lauenburg (approx. 55 km)
Your first cycling stage along the Elbe Cycle Path will take you through Geeshacht to the old shipping town Lauenburg. The Elbe – here still very broad – winds its way through the flatland, dispersing into many smaller and larger tributaries.

Day 3: Lauenburg – Hitzacker (approx. 55 km)
Today you will ride through sleepy villages and the Elbe Floodplain UNESCO Biosphere Reserve with its largely untouched fluvial landscape to Hitzacker. The town’s historic centre with numerous half-timbered houses is picturesque situated on an island and invites you for a stroll.

Day 4: Hitzacker – Wittenberge (approx. 78 km)
On your fourth day you will continue to cycle through the peaceful Elbe floodplains. Enjoy the tranquillity and wildlife along the way. You will also pass the former inner German borderland. Soon after that, Wittenberge will appear on the horizon, well known for its many towers.

Day 5: Wittenberge – Havelberg (approx. 38 km)

Shortly before reaching Magdeburg, stop at the imposing "European water junction" connecting the Elbe, the Elbe-Havel-Canal and the Mid-land Canal. In Magdeburg do not miss to pay a visit to the cathedral and Hundertwasser building.

Day 8: Magdeburg – Dessau (approx. 82 - 88 km)
The cycle path will lead you through the Biosphere Reserve of the Mid-Elbe, one of the last undeveloped floodplains in Central Europe. The untouched nature is home to rare bird species. Soon you will be arriving in Dessau. The Bauhaus buildings and the Masters’ houses from Kandinsky, Klee or Feininger all belong to the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage.

Today’s tour ends in Lutherstadt Wittenberg, the starting point of Martin Luther’s Reformation process 500 years ago. Take a walk through the intact historic centre and visit the various memorial sights dedicated to Martin Luther and Philip Melanchthon which were added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1996.
