Come to the city known as the Florence of the Elbe, Dresden, which is beautifully located along the Elbe valley. Whether it's the famous bailey known as the Zwinger, the Semper Opera or the Court Church- a tour for discovering the city on your own is a must.
Arrival by train is optional/parking site at the hotel.
Travel by train to Bad Schandau. From there you will cycle via Königstein, Rathen with its rockstage, castle Pillnitz and underneath the Loschwitzer Bridge (called "Blaues Wunder") back to Dresden. Enjoy the evening atmosphere in Dresden. The restaurants, wine cellars and rustic pubs on both sides of the river cater to all tastes.
Today you will cycle via Radebeul, once home town of Karl May, where you have the opportunity to get on the historical lightrailway 'Lößnitzdackel'. By that railway you can get to Moritzburg castle. In Meißen you may visit the world-famous porcelain-manufacture and the worth seeing Albrechtscastle.
Along traditional wine villages, which invite for a break, you follow the Elbe-bike 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.
After breakfast your tour will end in Wittenberg.
