Come to the city known as the Florence of the Elbe, Dresden, which is beautifully located along the Elbe valley. Visiting one of Europe's richest treasuries, the "Green Vault" inside the Zwinger, the Semper Opera or the Court Church- a tour for discovering the city on our own is a must. Enjoy the unique structur in a film screening about the Frauenkirche at the visitor center. Take your time and get to know the different sides of this beautiful city.
You will cycle via Radebeul, once home town of Karl May. In Meißen you may visit the world-famous porcelain-manufacture and the worth seeing castle Albrechtsburg.
Along traditional wine villages, which invite for a break, you cycle on the Elbe bike trail path to Riesa/ Strehla, whose castle, church and zoological garden are waiting for your visit.
In Belgern you can visit the sole Roland in the whole of Saxony and in Torgau you should visit the Hartenfels castle and the castle church. This church was inaugurated by Martin Luther and is regarded to be the first protestant church in Germany.
Today you will cycle to Wittenberg, which stands in direct connection with the name of Martin Luther. We recommend staying longer, so you can spend more time in the world-famous Wörlitzer park, which offers lovely islands, canals, temples and sculptures.
Today's journey leads through the delightful floodplain of the Elbe, along the world famous 'Wörlitzer Park', a more than 100 hectare large area filled with islands, channels and temples.In Dessau you will find a lot of interesting architecture in the 'Bauhaus-style' under direction of Walter Gropius accomplished in the 1920's.
In Aken you are going to cross over to the right side of the Elbe by ferry. Now you are in the biosphere reserve 'Mittlere Elbe', where - with some luck - you'll might be able to see an Elbe beaver. Further on you get to Walternienburg, where you will cross the Elbe again to get to Barby. Further on yxou will cross the reserve Kreuzhorst. To shorten the cycling distance you can take the train from Gommern to Magdeburg (direct train, aprox. 25 min., ticket not included in the tour price). Enjoy your stay in Magdeburg where you can visit the Magdeburger Dom.
