The Elbe cycling path is among the most charming and diversified cycling tour routes in Europe. The route leads from the south of Magdeburg into the "River Landscape of the Middle Elbe" sanctuary. You can view the Bauhaus style in the streets of Dessau and stroll along romantic paths, or admire temples and sculptures in the Garden Kingdom of Wörlitz. Martin Luther hammered his 95 theses onto the castle door in Wittenberg, and one is happy to wander through the alleys of the city centre. The journey continues along the Saxon Wine Road to Meißen, which invites a longer stay with its enchanting old town and porcelain factory. A highlight is the Saxon state capital of Dresden with its famous castles, the Semperoper and relaxed lifestyle.

Whole route: approx. 306 km
