Day 1: Individual arrival in Dresden

The impressive scenery of Dresden greets you from a distance, with the famous landmark buildings of the Zwinger Palace, the Semperoper Opera House and the Frauenkirche, Church of our Lady which was completley destroyed during the Second World War but has since been completely restored. Stroll through the beautifully restored baroque Old Town of Elbflorenz, the former seat of power of the Electors of Saxony.

Day 2: Trip to Pirna, approx. 50 km

Today you will be cycling up the Elbe, past the wonderful Pillnitz Palace to Pirna, known as the gate to Saxon Switzerland. You will be able to discover the charming old part of the town in a tour. Castle lovers will enjoy visiting Sonnenstein Castle. The Saxon wine route begins in Pirna and this is where you can enjoy a glass of wine before you get back to Dresden.

Day 3: Trip to Radebeul and Moritzburg, approx. 45 km + train journey

Winding roads leading through romantic valleys take you to Radebeul today, which is also known as Saxony´s Nice because of its wonderful location in Lößnitz. You travel by Lößnitztalbahn railway (included) to Moritzburg with its famous waterside castle, which was once a hunting lodge belonging to August the Strong. You cycle back to Dresden through the Friedewald forest, which is a nature reserve, and the Moritzburg ponds.

Day 4: Day spent in Dresden

A varied day in Dresden begins with a tour of the town (included), which highlights the many sights of this metropolis on the River Elbe. Enjoy the Baroque buildings and the flair of the beautiful historic centre. The afternoon is reserved for tasting the local wines. A winemaker from Dresden will be presenting some very tasty local drops (not included).

Day 5: Trip to Meissen, approx. 25 km + boat trip

Cycling down the River Elbe, you pedal towards Radebeul, also known as Karl-May town. You continue to Meissen, which is famous for its elegant porcelain. A visit to the porcelain manufacturer is a must. Otherwise we can recommend Meissen cathedral and Albrechtsburg castle, which is considered to be the first castle to have been built in Germany. You return to Dresden by boat, a relaxed way to travel back upstream. The elegant panorama of the Baroque town awaits you.

Day 6: Trip to Saxon Switzerland, approx. 20 – 40 km + tram ride

If you fancy you can spend a day in Saxon Switzerland. The countryside is an absolute delight. Conquer Fort Königsstein and be breath-taken at the lovely panoramic views. Or visit Edmunds Ravine in the Bohemian part of the national park, just after the German-Czech border. Let the boatsman tell you all kinds of facts as you float down this narrow gorge. The trip there and back from Dresden is easily done by tram.

Day 7: Individual journey home or extension of stay

Your cycling tour in and around Dresden ends after breakfast. We would be happy to extend your stay in Dresden if you like.
