Cycling holidays Prague - Dresden

Cycling: Prague - Dresden

Lust for life at rivers Moldau and Elbe

It will be hard to decide if start or end of this journey is more attractive. In imposing Prague the tour starts, full of history, lots of places of interest, coloured through lust for life. In Dresden the tour finds its end: Zwinger, Semper opera and Frauenkirche are competing against the beauty of Prague, trying to attract your attention.

In-between the cities you cycle on paths along the rivers Moldau and Elbe, you visit small, picturesque villages, you cross romantic river landscapes. Before Bad Schandau you pass the boarder. Bastei rock is awaiting you here and offering a wide view over the Elb valley, onto bizarre table mountains and impressing nature landscapes. Well, maybe you like the way from Prague to Dresden more than the cities itself?

Grandios
Eine wunderschöne Strecke mit vielen Sehenswürdigkeiten.

Prag - Dresden
Verglichen mit anderen Reisenden aus Deutschland wurde uns veraltetes Kartenmaterial ausgehändigt. Das führte zu einigen Problemen bei der Routensuche. Zudem genügte das Hotel in Leitmeritz den Ansprüchen an ein Viersternhotel nicht. Sonst eine schöne Tour mit guten Hotels.

Moldau - Elbe
Très bon accueil et organisation irréprochable. Parcours idéal pour débuter dans ce style de vacances, avec des trajets bien étudiés en longueur et difficultés. Site exceptionnel avec l'essentiel des chemins en site propre et très bien entretenu. Magnifiques vacances actives.

Passionnant
Le chemin est remarquablement bien indiqué par la signalisation en Tchéquie (numéros jaunes). C'est pour la plupart des beaux itinéraires. On a aimé prendre les bacs... L'offre des visites alentours était riche et variée.Nous avons apprécié de faire connaissance avec les autres participants lors du pot de bienvenue. Cela nous permis d'échanger au cours du voyage.Très bons vélos!

Schöne Städte - viel Erlebnis für fairen Preis
Die beiden Städte bieten viele Eindrücke. Die Reise auf dem teilweise neuen Europabikeweg Nr 2 ist angenehm (fast immer Radwege). Unterwegs tolle Kleinstädte, freundliche Leute, historische Stätten, Wasser und die böhmische Schweiz.
