Elbe River Trail: Prague to Dresden

This superb trail leads you along one of the largest European rivers, the Elbe (total length 360 km), and through two countries, the Czech Republic and Germany.

Starting in Prague, close to the river's source amongst the mighty Krkonose Mountains, you'll enjoy one of our most leisurely routes. Go zoom downhill and comfortably pedal on roads that are mostly straight. Like the majority of our cycling routes following water courses, this path offers beautiful views of the river and the surroundings. One very special highlight is the confluence of the Elbe with the Vltava River in beautiful Melnik, Czech Republic.

Along the route, there are also many interesting monuments in the towns and villages that have historical centers protected to preserve their historical charm, such as in Vrchlabi, Jaromer, Hradec Kralove, Pardubice, Kolin, Podebrady and Stara Boleslav. In addition, there are a host of chateaux and castles you may choose to visit. For sure, you'll not want to miss the stunning palaces at Kuks, Vrchlabi, Kuneticka Hora, Melnik, Libechov and Decin before pushing through to the spa town of Bad Schandau and finishing your extraordinary adventure in Dresden.
