Active and full of enjoyment through Dresden Elbland

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

Where to stay overnight? From simple guesthouses and holiday flats to hotels, everything is on offer - as well as suitable catering from hearty country house cuisine to Michelin-starred restaurants. Tip: The rustic beer gardens and broom taverns with wine, cheese and many other delicacies.
