    Prague - Dresden

    Nature and culture along the rivers Vltava and Elbe

    • The impressive city Prague is the beginning of your journey through history and a lot of sights.

      Dresden is the end of this beautiful tour: the Zwinger Palace, Semperoper (Opera house) and the Frauenkirche (church of ladays) wait for you. Between this two cities you cycle along the rivers Vltava and Elbe, visit a lot of picturesque villages and cross romantic landscapes. Enjoy the panoramic view from the Elbe Sandstone Mountains. This landscape is really impressive. Maybe you even like the way between Prague and Dresden more than the cities themselves.

       

       

       

       

       

      Tour profile

      Easy to moderate. You have to climb a few gradients, apart from that the route is mainly easy to cycle on the Elbe cycle path. A few roads are unpaved.

      Day 1: Prague

      Individual arrival.

      Day 2: Prague - Melnik, approx. 56 km

      Despite the first small ascent, today’s stage follows a nice trail to the heart of the Czech wine region - the town of Melnik. Just before we leave Prague, we pass the Troja Baroque Castle and we continue to the North following the bank of the Vltava River. The river cuts into the ground here, which creates very interesting rock formations and deep valleys. Visits of castles in Nelahozeves or Veltrusy are the biggest highlights of this day. We will end in an old wine town above the confluence of the rivers Vltava and Elbe – Melnik.

      Day 3: Melnik - Litomerice, approx. 48 km

      Today’s stage leads us through a calm Elbe region and is without significant altitude changes. This region is one of the most fertile regions in the Czech Republic. The most impressive stop on today’s stage is the massive Terezin Fortress from the turn of the 18th century, which illustrates the military architecture of that time. The seamy side of its history is the World War II period. Nazis used this place as a Jewish concentration camp. We will conclude the day in an old town and spiritual center of this region – Litomerice.

      Day 4: Litomerice - Decin, approx. 51 km

      Even though the Czech Middle Mountains region is very hilly, we will follow the banks of the Elbe River most of the time and hills with several old-time ruins will surround us. This former volcanic region had always been an ideal terrain for building of castles and fortresses.

      Day 5: Decin - Bad Schandau, approx. 23 km

      This day will be almost fully optional but always special! In the morning you can decide, whether you prefer biking or sailing to Hrensko. This border town is situated in the heart of the Czech-Saxon Switzerland NP and offers many attractive activities. It offers many hiking trails leading through the scenery of the rocky towns, the mesas, the passes, deep gorges and hillsides. Special bonus to admire is the wonder of the Pravcicka Gate, no doubt, the biggest natural rock bridge in Europe.

      Day 6: Bad Schandau - Dresden, approx. 45 km

      This day is packed with historical sights! Shortly from Bad Schandau we will see a scary looking Königstein Fortress and just past the curve a beautiful rock formation with a romantic rock bridge and Bastei Ruin. A couple of kilometers down the road, by the town of Pirna, we will enter the region of the Dresden Valley.

      Day 7: Dresden

      Individual departure or extended stay.

      According to your handouts, you tell us that helmets are provided. We strongly think that you should provide helmets, water bottles and handbag bags anyway., coming from Canada by plane, we don?t want to bring those items.
