Ruta para recorrer el rio Elba, desde su desembocadura en el mar del Norte (Cuxhaven), para atravesar Alemania Occidental, Oriental y Chequia, hasta Praga. Recorre la famosa i ciclada ruta en bici Elberadweg.

Route to go trough all Elbe river, from the mouth in the North sea (Cuxhaven), to cross all West German, East German and Czech Republic, to Praga. It goes through the famous and very cycled bike route Elberadweg.

This is an interesting trip to cross part of Europe from the north to the center, following the river Elbe and his Elberadweg. The route is well prepared for bikes, using dam paths, cycle paths near local roads, and beautiful farm paths near the marshes of the river.

The first part passes on the dams and near the river which is very wide from the mouth to Hamburg. This part can be done in two stages and take a rest in the lively city of Hamburg.

The second part we can consider from Hamburg to Magdeburg, which can be done with 3 stages of 100 km. Is very flat and you can pass many types of paths near the river and the villages next to it. Hitzacker and Werben can be the two stops, but you can try other like Lauenburg or Havelberg.

After crossing Magdeburg, we can consider the third part of the trip, till Dresden. It can be done also in three stages stoping in Worlitz and Torgau, two beutiful villages next to the river. It's also very flat and beautiful.

After the reconstructed Dresden, we enter the hilly fourth part of Porta Bohemia, that enters us to Czcech republic. All this part is a full of bikes beautiful cycle path to the frontier.

Once in Czech Republic, most of way is next to the river, mostly paved and can be done in three stages, stoping in Decin and Melnik before arriving to Prague, the very touristic city of central Europe.

The best time is late spring. Not many rain, and temperatures are not very high.  July can be hotter, and final august and september are a bit colder but good temperature to ride.

We got by plane to Bremen, and then there is good connection to Cuxhaven, which is the start point. From Prague the international airport has many flight connections to many places in Europe.

No needs of Visa in any of the three countries if you are european citizen. There is plenty of places to have meals and sleeping. But some are for local tourists and can be dificult to speak english in some places. West Germany is more expensive than East. Czech is more economic.
There is many information of the route and all is prepared for bikes. Hotels and B&B are bike friendly.

All the way is very easy to ride. There are no roads with traffic. The pavement is quite good, and only few parts are non paved. The way is very flat and the wind normaly goes from west-soutthwest, so this direction is good for the wind. Normally all the roads has
cycle paths beside.

    Molt bona ruta, majorment per carril bici i la resta, amb molt poc poc trànsit. Tot molt bé, ho explica molt en WCRVBB.

    Aquest estiu hem fet aquesta ruta i gràcies al Vicens que ens va complementar el track vam poder allargar-lo de Praga a Viena amb tot luxe de detalls.
    Ens ha agradat molt i hem gaudit de cada camí, transbordadors, carrils bici, carreteres molt secundaries etc. Apart de seguir el riu Elba, també en travessat boscos i pobles, les rutes et porten a visitar monuments històrics i punts turístics.
    Agraïm molt que hagin persones com el Vicens que comparteixin amb nosaltres aquestes rutes, sense tots vosaltres no seria possible per nosaltres poder-les realitzar.
    Moltes gràcies
