Built by the water.

It is the star among Germany's cycle paths - with culture and nature as constant companions on the banks of the Elbe. The Saxon section of the Elbe cycle path is fascinating: The dramatic cliffs of Saxon Switzerland in the east, the lovely hilltops of the Meissen Spaargebirge. In the far north-west is the Luther town of Torgau. In between, unspoilt nature, vineyards, cute village greens like in Altkötzschenbroda - and the picturesque old towns of Meissen and Pirna.
