The Elbe Cycle Path - Germany's most popular long-distance cycle path. You decide which section and in which direction you want to cycle. A recommendation is difficult because you will find an incredible density of culture and nature. Dresden Frauenkirche, Meissen porcelain, Sachsenwein, Luther in Wittenberg, Bauhaus in Dessau, Hundertwasser in Magdeburg - there is a lot to experience. On a trip to Saxon Switzerland, you can swap your bike for hiking boots and scale the heights of the Elbe Sandstone Mountains. Stay in a café with a typical Saxon cake, the "Eierschecke". Discover your personal Elbe cycle path.

Today you cycle past Schönebeck and Gommern to the beautiful town of Barby.

 

 

Overnight place: Barby

You cycle through the river meadows of the Elbe to Aken. The small town is now a monument and includes a city wall with 14 defense towers and three city gate towers, which have been preserved without major destruction for 700 years. Your journey continues to Dessau. Dessau was once the residence of the Ascanians and, with the establishment of the Bauhaus in 1925, has become an address with an international reputation in art, architecture and design.

 

Overnight place: Dessau or surroundings

Today you can either follow the Elbe directly or cycle via the baroque town of Oranienbaum to Wittenberg. Via the Elbe you reach the town of Wörlitz with its 112-hectare Wörlitzer Park, which was built between 1765 and 1819 as the first English-style landscape park on the European mainland. The largest exhibition on the history of the Reformation in the Luther Hall in Wittenberg invites you to follow in the footsteps of Martin Luther. The town church of St. Marien (UNESCO World Heritage) is also worth seeing.

 

Overnight place: Wittenberg,

Today you cycle past Lichtenberg Castle via Pretzsch along the Elbe. Your destination is the former fortress town of Torgau. This is where the Soviets and Americans met at the Elbe Bridge during World War II.

 

Overnight place: Torgau

On today's stage, the path leads through the town of Mühlberg with the Cistercian monastery and the Treblitz tree park. Further along the Elbe to Strehla, an idyllic town with a history of more than 1000 years. Continue cycling to the former steel town of Riesa, where you can visit the pasta factory for free.

 

Overnight place: Riesa or Strehla

Today the path leads you along the northernmost vineyards in Germany to Diesbar-Seußlitz. In addition to the baroque castle with a beautiful garden, the wine-growing village offers a variety of places to stop and get to know and taste Saxon wine. When you arrive in Meissen, a visit to the Porzellan Manufaktur (under your own management) and the Albrechtsburg (under your own management) is a must.

 

Overnight place: Meissen

On the way from Meissen, it is worth leaving the Elbe cycle path and cycling the vineyards between Radebeul and Meissen. In Radebeul there is the opportunity to visit the Karl May Museum (own management) or to take one of the guided tours of Wackerbarth Castle (own management). In the afternoon you will reach Dresden, the Florence on the Elbe and the cultural metropolis of Saxony. In the cityscape, the Frauenkirche can be seen in the ensemble with the Brühlsche Terrasse, the Hofkirche, the Semperoper and the Zwinger. Especially as a cyclist you always have a beautiful view of the cityscape from the Elbe.
