Cycling in Saxon Switzerland
Cycle tours are an ideal way to extensively explore Saxon Switzerland
Tourists preferring a relaxed and pleasurable cycling style find the Elbe cycling path to be an ideal combination of unhurried activity and grand nature experience. Cyclists hungry for altitude differences can be thrilled by panoramic views of the Elbe Sandstone Mountains away from the river bank.
The route conditions are sometimes rough and now and then there are some ascents to be mastered. But there are always fantastic views and gorgeous descents as an instant reward for all efforts.
Many hosts have adapted to cyclists and provide suitable lodging. It goes without saying that even without their own bike, tourists can enjoy cycling pleasures. There are many specialised businesses hiring bicycles or offering package deals for cyclists.
