You begin your tour in the Hanseatic city of Hamburg with its numerous tourist features. Your journey leads you through the exquisite north German landscape, which is characterised by the blessing and the curse of the Elbe waters. Idyllic half-timbered villages and giant fruit orchards line your path. Take time to admire the mighty river following its course! Your path leads you through the biosphere reserve "River Landscape of the Elbe Valley" and the picturesque imperial city of Tangermünde to the cathedral city of Magdeburg. Stopping here for a longer period also has its rewards, as the favourite residence of Emperor Otto I looks back on 1,200 years of history. The flat terrain also makes it possible for even the untrained cyclist to easily travel longer distances.
