Magdeburg Cathedral on the Elbe Cycle Path

On their own. Explore the imperial city on your own in the afternoon.

Overnight place: Magdeburg

From the center of Magdeburg it goes along the Elbe meadows. In Hohenwarte you should look at the lock system. We continue to Buch, where a statue of Roland and a Dutch windmill can be seen. Tangermünde's lovingly renovated old town is surrounded by an impressive city wall with numerous towers and fortified gates.


Overnight place: Tangermünde

Leave Tangermünde with a special experience, the crossing with a yaw cable ferry to the other bank of the Elbe. On the way you should enjoy the historic town center and a wonderful view of the Elbe valley in Arneburg. Then it continues through the green Elbe landscape of the Altmark. Today's destination, Havelberg, is one of the oldest dioceses east of the Elbe. The Romanesque-Gothic cathedral shows the way to the Elbe town of Havelberg from afar.


Overnight place: Havelberg

You cycle through the wide landscape of the Prignitz on dyke paths along the Elbe. On the way you come to Rühstädt, the village with the most storks in Germany.
The destination is the Elbe town of Wittenberge in the Prignitz.


Overnight place: Wittenberge

Today you cycle through the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve "Flusslandschaft Elbe" along the Elbe via Dömitz to Gartow and Wittenberge. In Dömitz you can visit one of the most impressive fortresses in Northern Europe (on your own). The town of Lenzen, on the other hand, awaits you with half-timbered houses and a castle that are well worth seeing.


Overnight place: Hitzacker

From Hitzacker it goes to Boizenburg. Here, the tile museum gives an insight into craftsmanship and production (in-house). You cycle on a flat path to the left of the Elbe with a view of the hilly side to the right of the Elbe, where the steep banks and slopes of the Elbe offer an attractive contrast to the otherwise flat landscape. On the way, the Elbe Castle in Bleckede invites you
(in your own direction) to linger. The shipping town of Lauenburg with its half-timbered houses from the 16th and 17th centuries and the Elbe Shipping Museum is your destination for the day.


Overnight place: Lauenburg

Going with the flow, leave Lauenburg along the Elbe and cycle through the wide green land of the Elbmarsch. The destination of today's stage is the Hanseatic City of Hamburg.


Overnight place: Hamburg

After breakfast, you will travel home on your own. Musicals, theatres, excellent restaurants, 1.000 opportunities for shopping and a multitude of sights are what make the Hanseatic city so attractive. On request, we can book additional nights for you in the effervescent metropolis on the Elbe.

Last year we did this wonderful tour from Hamburg to Magdeburg with the Mecklenburger Radtour did. We found the tour very well worked out, the hotels were all highly recommended and the travel organization by the company. Mecklenburger Radtour very professional. The fact that we took the direction of the journey from Hamburg to Magdeburg was confirmed to us by the constant westerly wind. This trip is also a scenic highlight. You can't see that on any road trip. The rental bikes were great too. Thank you again for this beautiful bike ride. It will certainly not be the last with the Mecklenburger Radtour .

Impressive after the flood

After the terrible flooding, we had great reservations about starting the journey. We often drove on well-constructed dams and soon the doubts were gone and given way by beautiful new impressions of a beautiful landscape. I have never seen so many storks and the conversations with the affected people who braved the flood were very enriching. An unforgettable trip, superbly organised. Thanks.
- Guido Roppel

The bike tour was great fun.

In the hotel we would have liked the suitcases to be carried to the room, unfortunately the hotels had no service for this.
