Itinerary

Cycling - Prague to Dresden - 6 nights | 5 stages

Day 1 - Arrival to Prague

After your arrival and check-in to a Prague hotel, this day is yours to explore, relax, or have a unique, private Prague-by-bike tour. The tour is guided by Prague natives who truly love the city and can reveal much more than any travel book. It is also great way to test your bikes before your tour starts and therefore highly recommended!

Extra nights available!

 

Day 2 - Prague - Melník (53 km)

Leaving Prague, we will peek into the elegantly restored Trója Chateau and its royal gardens before rolling under the rock cliffs of the Prague basin. Our route will pass by the sgraffito of the Renaissance-era Chateau Nelahozeves- feel free to enter the courtyard and admire the architecture. Pay attention to the small house nearly in the shadow of the castle, the birthplace of composer Antonín Dvorák. From Nelahozeves, it is only a short ride to Chateau Veltrusy and its Romantic-era park. Take some time to meander around the hidden statues and monuments of the wooded park, or continue along the main path towards Horín, whose water lock is a technical and architectural landmark of the late 19th-century. We will finish our first day of biking with a glass of wine, since this whole region is one of the centers of the Czech wine-growing.

 

Day 3 - Melník - Litomerice (52 km)

Today’s bike tour stage will take in the most fertile part of the Czech Republic – the Elbe lowlands (Polabská nízina region) or Czech Garden. For most of our day we will have the volcanic cone Ríp in sight, a hill where the mythical arrival of Slavs into the Bohemian (Czech) Lands occurred. Pause to watch local champions working out on rowboats in the Racice sports facility before pedaling to Roudnice, one of the oldest cities in the Czech Republic and an ideal place for a pleasant lunch. From Roudnice it is only a short bike ride through the hops fields (basic ingredient for Czech liquid gold – beer) to the impressive 18th-century fortress of Terezín. Unfortunately, nowadays it is very well-known as a Jewish concentration camp during the Second World War, bearing witness to the dark side of the 20th-century. But a happier coda to the day can be found just across the river in the regional capital town of Litomerice, our overnight stay.

 

Day 4 - Litomerice - Decín (52 km)

Today, we will head towards the romantic region of the Czech Central Mountains. This ancient volcanic region rises high around our river valley route, medieval castles looming over visitors from the narrow peaks of extinct cones. But we will use the ancient trade route along the river Labe connecting the Czech and Saxon Kingdoms. We will enter the Czech Central Mountains by the symbolically named Porta Bohemica. From here we will continue to nearby Zernoseky, a village known for its wine-growing and Baroque chateau. Our next landmark will be more modern: the Masaryk flood-gates, followed by the ancient ruins of Strekov Castle majestically rising above the City of Ústí. In Ústí, we can admire the most off-center tower north of Alps. The incline of the tower was caused due to a heavy bombing at the end of World War II. Farther along, Velké Brezno Castle is a fine testimonial of Empire architecture in the Czech Lands. We will end our bike route in a city of Decín, a city dominated visually by a chateau high above on a rocky perch.

 

Day 5 - Decín – Bad Schandau/Krippen area (25 km)

During this day, we will take a break from our bicycles, only making a short 25 km ride through the picturesque landscape of the Czech and Saxon Switzerland National Park. The bike path is lined by amazing sandstone cliffs and pillars - one would scarcely believe that this is the lowest point of the Czech Republic! After arriving to Hrensko, we can dedicate the whole day to hiking across this exquisite terrain. We can again chose from a few options: we can either hike up to the largest natural sand stone arch in Central Europe – Pravcická brána with an admirable view of the surrounding area. Or we can take a relaxed stroll and gondola ride through an untouched part of the Kamenice River valley. We will conclude the day after a short bike ride and cross the border to Germany in the lovely Bad Schandau spa town area. (you can also spend half-day with spa procedures).

 

Day 6 - Bad Schandau – Dresden (40 km)

On last full day of our bike touring from Bad Schandau it is only a short ride to an impregnable fortress of Königstein. In Bastei we will come along a great view combining the natural beauty of the local sandstone and the medieval castle ruins. It is highly recommended to take one more hike to enjoy stunning views of the Elbe valley and the Bastei Brücke! From medieval town Pirna all the way to Dresden the system of chateaux and castles built by Saxon kings have merited an inscription onto the UNESCO World Heritage list. After a fulfilling day among culture and nature we will end up our day by arriving to bustling Dresden.

As an option to biking, you can ride to Dresden on one of the historical boats.

 

Day 7 - Return

After breakfast, the trip will be over.
