Elbe Cycle Route

Bicycle Tour

From Wittenberge to Cuxhaven via Hamburg: the Elbe Cycle Route takes you along one of the most beautiful and varied river landscapes in Europe, right across the Republic.

The Elbe belongs to the "slow" rivers in Germany. The absolute difference in altitude between Cuxhaven and Wittenberge is about 30 m. So you can generally cycle upstream or downstream without much effort. Problems can be caused only once by a strong wind. The stage from Cuxhaven to Hamburg covers 141 km, a stopover with overnight stay in the Hanseatic city offers the optimal opportunity for a break.

You can see the "Kugelbake" at the northern peak of Lower Saxony next to "Alten Liebe" (a pier with viewing platform) – the former navigational mark is the symbol of Cuxhaven today and part of the city's coat of arms.

Old half-timbered houses, cobblestones, the old Hanseatic harbour, the proximity to the water - attributes which are associated with a Hanseatic town and are found in Stade in exactly the same way. Over ten million fruit trees bloom every spring at the gates of the Hanseatic city of Stade. A day trip to the Lower Saxon town on the Lower Elbe is worthwhile.
