Cycling in Dresden Elbland

Traveling alone? Or as a group? Just get on your bike, take a deep breath and head out into the countryside. What sounds so simple works in Dresden Elbland at any time of year - not least because of the wonderful, well-signposted bike routes. The famous Elbe Cycle Path elegantly follows the river from Pirna to Torgau, and if you feel like exploring off the main route, there are countless themed trails to discover everywhere. Wonderful landscapes, nice wine taverns - and lots of nature also make you want to go on tours lasting several days. 

It is the star among Germany's bike paths: Culture and nature are constant companions on the banks of the Elbe like nowhere else. Dresden's magnificent cultural scene shows itself from its most beautiful sides - a wonderful reward for the many kilometers in the saddle. How about a stopover at the art collections in the palace and Zwinger, for example?
