On 25 kilometres we cycle a flat route from Dresden to Meissen. From the cultural capital, our route always runs along the Elbe, past vineyards, to the town of Meissen, which became famous for the production of porcelain.
Distance 24.3 km
We start in the cultural city of Dresden. Besides the old town on the banks of the Elbe, the Semper Opera House, the Zwinger, the Cathedral of St Trinitatis, the Albertinum, the Hofkirche and, of course, the Frauenkirche (1), there is so much to see here that you should actually stay for several days. From the station we start on Eisenbahnstraße and turn right onto Leipziger Straße. We now follow the Elbe until we turn right onto Kötzschenbroder Straße. Finally, we pass under the A4 and then immediately turn left into Grimmstraße. Passing the village of Kaditz with the Emmaus Church, we reach the Elbe again. Soon we pass Radebeul, which has merged with its neighbouring parishes. The peace treaty between Saxony and Sweden was concluded in the Radebeul church (2) after the 30-year war. But the town has even more to offer. In Karl-May-Straße 5 we find the Karl May Museum. We continue our tour along the banks of the river through the Saar Mountains and the Saxon wine-growing region. We quickly reach the centre of Meissen. Here Johann Friedrich Böttger produced the first white porcelain in 1709. One year later, the first porcelain factory (3) was founded, whose wares with the blue crossing swords are still known worldwide. The factory can be reached from the market along Webergasse, Görnische Gasse and Am Steinberg Straße. The old town around the cathedral, castle, bishop's palace and Frauenkirche church are also worth seeing.
