Philip Moritz invented and built the first bicycle in Germany about 200 years ago. Today there are over 70 million bikes in Germany.
Cycling is part of German culture. People ride to work, using them for exercise or just for enjoyment.
Germany is a paradise for cyclists vacationers. There are scenic routes in the lush countryside, along rivers and vineyards. Most of them are peppered with culinary stops, monuments and UNESCO World Heritage sites making it a compelling experience.
We have chosen a classic route from Hamburg to Dresden riding along the Elbe River Cycle Path and continue from Dresden to Prague in the Czech Republic. The route is loaded with historical monuments, many dating to the 1st millennium as well as breathtaking natural sights.
