Elbe Valley and Saxon Switzerland

Tour Description: Self-guided

The Elbe river cycle path follows the river from the mountainous areas of Saxon Switzerland (at the Czech border) to the city center of Dresden with its famous skyline. Behind Dresden, the vineyards of Radebeul appear. This town, near the Saxon capital, is characterized by an almost mediterranean atmosphere.

The next stop is Meissen, the historical cradle of Saxony. The famous Meissen Porcelain Factory presents masterpieces in "white gold" from past and present. Other well-known places along the route are Torgau, where the American and Russian armies met after World War II, Wittenberg, the place where Luther's reformation began and Dessau, famous for its "Bauhaus" style of architecture.

This tour is also offered in reverse, from Bad Schandau to Dessau.  The itinerary for this option is simply the reverse of the itinerary for Dessau to Bad Schandau.
