Informatie van de uitgever
The distance along the Elbe River Trail between Prague and Magdeburg is 500 Kilometres. This figure does not include the 300 Kilometres of additional excursions and alternative routes from which the rider can choose.
Surface quality and traffic
As a whole, the route of the Elbe River Trail has not quite reached the quality which is seen along the upper parts of the Danube Bike Trail, but years of continual improvements have produced and excellent cycling route with few gaps. Regular work is still being conducted on the route as well as on flood mitigation structures along the river, so please be aware that the route described in our guide may in some places differ from the actual signposted route. The route in the Czech Republic still frequently follows unpaved field roads or tracks, especially along the Vltava River, or along country roads with light to moderate traffic. Well developed bicycle paths and infrastructure can already be found between Litomerice and the German border. Once in Saxony you will find a very cycling-friendly state which has almost completed the development of the Elbe River Trail. The route partly follows quiet country roads, but mostly runs along even, paved bicycle paths. In Saxony-Anhalt you will still find some gravel paths along the river meadows, but these are generally good to ride on, even with a heavily loaded bicycle.
Along the section between Prague and the German border you will follow the signposted route No. 2, which is well posted on the bicycle paths, less often along the stretches on the roads. In some cases the signs are poorly recognisable In Saxony the route is signposted throughout with the distinct Elbe River Trail logo and in Saxony-Anhalt it is additionally signposted with "R2", the state´s own code for the route.
