Dresden bike tours

The capital of Saxony is a treasure trove of unrivalled architecture – palaces a-plenty and commanding castles throw tantalizing reflections into the River Elbe. With its royal history, Dresden was once nicknamed the ‘Jewel Box’, the city being decorated to an exceptional degree of splendor in the Baroque and Rococo styles by the kings of Saxony. When Dresden was badly bombed during WWII, the entire city center was destroyed, leading to extensive restoration works to rebuild the historic sites visitors can still enjoy today. Since German reunification at the end of the 20th Century, Dresden has once again assumed its place as a cultural, political and education center of Germany, with an economy amongst the most dynamic in the country.

Dresden is threaded by the Weisseritz and Lockwitzbach rivers, with the Ore Mountains rising peacefully at the city limits. A ride along its romantic streets reveals such historic sightseeing splendors as the Semperoper, Old Town, Hofkirche, 'Zwinger', Tachenbergpalais, Schlossplatz, Procession of Princes, and Frauenkirche. Stunning architecture reflects ravishingly in the River Elbe, whilst treasures lie further out of town too - Pillnitz Castle and Moritzburg Castle, Meissen and Radebeul are all worth a wonderful day tour.
