Cycle from golden Prague in the Czech Republic to the beautiful city of Dresden, ‘the Florence of the Elbe’, in Germany, along the Vltava and the Elbe, crossing the beautiful Saxon Switzerland and the Elbe Sandstone Mountains. The Elbe Cycle Path is one of the most popular cycling routes in Germany, for a reason.
Explore on foot the best parts of Saxon Switzerland in Germany and Bohemian Switzerland in Czechia. Part of the route follows the Malerweg (Painters Trail). You will reach famous sights such as the Bastei viewpoint and bridge near Rathen, the Königstein Fortress and Pravčická Brána, the biggest natural rock arch in Europe.
The Giant Mountains offer great hiking opportunities in the heart of Old Europe, beautiful alpine meadows, bare ridges, picturesque waterfalls and fairy-tale villages. And maybe you will have a chance to meet the mischievous but friendly guardian goblin Krkonos (Rubezahl) himself! Your holiday will end in Prague with plenty of time to take in this beautiful city.
Take a walk through the narrow corridors of “rock cities”, exciting rock labyrinths, and splendid viewpoints. Explore castles, ancient ruins, waterfalls, and stunning rock phenomena. Visit Trosky Castle – the symbol of the Bohemian Paradise. Finish your Bohemian Paradise holiday in Prague with plenty of time to get to know the City of a Hundred Spires.
