Cycling from Prague to Dresden by the Moldau (Vtava) and Elbe (Labe) is one of the most rewarding and physically least challenging bike trips to enjoy in Central Europe. You’re mostly following the rivers on dedicated cycling paths or small country roads, have little to fight with climbing, pass beautiful landscapes and discover historic towns. Alone or in small groups you can make it to Dresden in four days of easy cycling (4-5 hours per day). If you want to spend more time at one place or take a day off for hiking in the National Parks of Bohemian / Saxon Switzerland, you should plan on a full week.
