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?
