Cycling holidays 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?

Sehr schöne Velotour
Alles hat perfekt geklappt : Übernahme der Räder inkl. Zubehör, Information, Gepäcktransport und Hotels! Wir können diese Velotour jedermann wärmstens empfehlen.

Von der Böhmischen zur Sächsischen Schweiz
Einchecken im ersten Hotel war um 16:00 Uhr noch nicht möglich. Alles hat geklappt - auch die diversen Fährenfahrten in der ersten Etappe. Die Infos wegen einer Schleusen-Schliessung kurz vor Melnik war etwas unklar. Dieter war mit der Gepäck-Anzahl sehr gefordert. Sehr unterschiedliche Wegbeschaffenheiten, vom Schotterweg bis zur verkehrsreichen Hauptstrasse. Hotels unterschiedlich: von genügend bis sehr gut. Fahrräder: stabil, 'rustikale Unisexmodelle' Gute Insider Tipps-Booklet vom Partner. Reiseunterlagen, Stadtpläne waren hilfreich.

sehr empfehlenswert
Die Radstrecken waren in Tschechien in einigen Abschnitten schlecht befahrbar. Eine Verbesserung dieser Abschnitte ist sehr wünschenswert. Das Hotel in Melnik war sehr unfreundlich und düster. Ein wenig mehr Licht und etwas aufgeräumter würde gut anstehen. Alle anderen Unterkünfte haben unseren Vorstellungen und Wünschen entsprochen. Über alles gesehen war es eine sehr angenehme, erlebnisreiche und naturnahe Tour. Sehr zum empfehlen.
