Bike hiking on the Elbe river path trail

Bike paths bicycle trails tour bike rental

If you are commited to biking and you are planing a bicycle vacation, you will find a nice expanded bike path net in the surrounding of the 013-pill castle hotel for scenic bike tours, which is ideal for short bicylce trips as well as extended bike trips. Especially along the Elbe river there are family-kind routes, which can easily be managed by children, too.

The Elbe river path stretches on a length of about 260 km between Schona in the Saxon Switzerland at the border of the Czech Republic and Dessau in Saxony-Anhalt. This bike path leads through different landscapes and worthseeing towns and cities. From Schona over Bad Schandau to Pirna, the bizarre Elbsandsteingebirge (Elbe river sand stone mountains) of the Saxon Switzerland builds the impressive scene for bicycle tours. From Pirna, gentle hills and noble castles, among these also the 013-pill castle hotel, accompany the bikers until the old town of Dresden. From Dresden the bicycle path partly leads over the Saxon Weinstrasse (wine street) past vineyards, through Radebeul, the porcelain town Meissen and pictorial wine towns along the Elbe river. Then the Elbe river landscape expands out and the Elbe river bike path leads through a partly protected floodplain landscape over Strehla to the historical Torgau. From Torgau the last section leads past the nature park Duben Heide over the Lutherstadt Wittenberg until Dessau.

The Elbe river bike path is almost everywhere marked with "e" or with "R2". The signs in cities and bigger towns are less good. A bike path card or a bicycle travel guide is recommended. The Elbe river bike path builds about 90 % of the Elbe river bike path. Except of some short cobbled or damaged sections, the path is covered from a tar carpet and are therefore good to drive. The altitude difference on the bike path are minimum. The altitude difference total between Schona and Dessau is only 60 height meters. From the pretense, it stays almost the same. There's almost no difference if the bike tour goes downstream of the Elbe river or upstream of the Elbe river.

Suggestions for bike trips on the Elbe river bicycle path trail

After a trip of about 12 km with the bike on the Elbe river bicycle path from the 013-pill castle hotel in northwest direction, you reach the old town of Dresden with its famous places of interest such as the Frauenkirche (church of our Lady) Dresden, the Semper opera Dresden, the Dresden Zwinger and the residence castle. In Hosterwitz (about 1 km from the 013-pill castle hotel), you can make stop in order to visit the Carl-Maria-von-Weber museum.

After a trip of about 19 km with the bicycle on the Elbe river bike trail, you reach Radebeul in northwest direction, the town where Karl May lived. Besides the Karl-May museum, the wine growing museum also invites to a visit.

A worthwhile destination from the 013-pill castle hotel for a day trip with the bike is the wine and porcelain town Meissen (about 38 km northwest of the 013-pill castle hotel). Worthseeing are among others the historical old town with market place, the Frauenkirche (women church), the museum of local history, the castle hill with Albrechts castle and cathedral as well as the porcelain manufactory.
