Cycle tours in the Elbe Sandstone Mountains

Elberadweg bei KönigsteinNot only fans of hiking will discover their paradise in Saxon Switzerland; cyclists will discover innumerable cycle paths throughout the national park region and its surrounding area.

The Elbe cycle path from Schöna to Saxon Switzerland's northern border near Heidenau is 43 km long with very little change in altitude. Cycling upriver from Schöna, you can ride further into Bohemian Switzerland, or downriver from Pirna you can cycle to Dresden. The ferries along the path are recommended for cyclists wanting to cycle on both sides of the river.

Please note that the Elbe cycle path between Königstein and Rathen is only on the left (when facing downriver) side of the Elbe and between Königstein and Bad Schandau only on the right side of the Elbe.
