Cycling Tours

Cycling tours are an ideal way to extensively explore Saxon Switzerland. Guests who prefer a relaxed and pleasurable cycling style find on the Elbe Cycling Path an ideal combination of unhurried activity and grand nature experience. Cyclists keen on altitude differences can also find their thrills with panoramic views of the Elbe Sandstone Mountains off the river bank.

A particular insider’s tip is the cycling routes through the Saxon Switzerland National Park. On certain hiking trails marked as cycling routes – at the moment about 50 km – you cycle right through untouched nature. The bicycle should however be well-suited for off-road use. And you should be prepared for steep ascents and descents, narrow sections and rough terrain. But this is exactly what makes these tours so interesting.

Notice

Please pay attention to temporary forest closures and suggested diversions.
Due to acute bark beetle infestation, the stability of dead spruces has considerably decreased. In the entire National Park area, there is a very high risk due to dead trees and collapsing deadwood on many paths. Especially in the rear part of the National Park, there are paths which are currently impassable.
