The round trip takes you from the starting point in Brockwitz past the baroque church. The tour continues in the direction of Friedewald, where you will pass the Wolf Monument and enjoy a view of the Fuchsberg. In Radeburg, the center of the tour, among other things, the birthplace of Heinrich- Zille, the historic market and a memorial stone await you. Along the way, you will pass stops on the Lößnitzgrundbahn. Get on and enjoy the ride on the historic narrow-gauge railroad. The bike path takes you further to Berbisdorf, Bärnsdorf via Reichenberg to Radebeul. There you have the opportunity to visit the historic village green in Altkötzschenbroda or to expand your wine knowledge in the wine museum Hoflößnitz. Ride a bit on the Elberadweg back to the starting point in Brockwitz.
