Holiday overview

A lovely journey along the River Elbe, Germany's second largest river, which flows through beautiful countryside and some of the country’s most interesting towns and cities.

Once you have arrived in Dessau you will begin cycling through beautiful meadows alongside the lovely Elbe, passing by the world famous Woerlitzer Park and Gardens, to the historic Lutherstadt Wittenberg.

As you make your way along this river you’ll encounter a fantastic selection of historical German towns.

Your journey also takes you through one of the most distinguished wine growing regions of Germany.

During your final day of riding you'll soak up the sights of Saxon Switzerland and complete your journey at the Spa town of Bad Schandau.

Discover beautiful places on two wheels with HF Holidays and Saddle Skedaddle.




You'll be staying in good quality 3 and 4-star hotels, located within close proximity of the River Elbe. You'll be provided with detailed route notes and maps so that you can navigate your way along the route each the day, and we'll transfer your luggage from hotel to hotel. Please note that the road book provided is designed to take you from Bad Schandau to Dessau, however it does also give instructions on how to do the route the way we offer it. Going from Dessau to Bad Schandau sees you setting off in the lowlands and then cycling into the mountainous countryside giving the best variety of scenery. That being said, please do let us know if you'd like to start the tour in Bad Schandau.
