Magdeburg - Bad Schandau (9 days)

Magdeburg - Bad Schandau (9 days) 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 "Mittlere Elbe". You can see the Bauhaus style in the streets of Dessau and stroll along romantic paths or admire temples and sculptures in the garden area 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. You continue along the saxon wine street to Meißen which invites you to stay longer with its enchanting old town and porcelain factory. A highlight is the Dresden with its famous castles, the Semperoper and relaxed lifestyle. Finally, you will be rewarded at the end of your cycling tour with a gorgeous view of the bizarre formations of the Elbesandtseingebirge.
