Germany Bike Tours

Rolling Beyond the Wall

In only one week on this Germany bike tour, we explore the dynamic cities of Berlin, Potsdam and Dresden—cities replete with culture, history and art, but that also reveal a dynamic, contemporary soul. We venture off into the countryside, traversing forest paths and wending along lakeside trails outside of Potsdam, spinning through the woods of Swiss Saxony and through the Elbe River valley. We tour palaces and the incredible gardens of Sanssouci, reside in a castle, and immerse ourselves in all the delicious comforts that accompany us along the way.

Signature Hotels: This trip uses premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they've had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.

Zur Bleiche Resort & Spa, Burg

Set amid the peaceful Spreewald forest, the Hotel Zur Bleiche, once a royal bleaching-house, was converted to a luxurious Resort Spa & Wellness Centre in 1992. Its health facilities are topnotch; they are frequented not only by guests, but also by the world renowned Bayern Munich football club. View hotel website »

Kempinski Taschenbergpalais, Dresden

Nestled between the baroque landmarks of the opera house and historic national museum, the Kempinski Taschenbergpalais has a location that is second to none. And beyond the imposing façade of this meticulously reconstructed royal palace built in 1706 lie equally regal amenities: sitting rooms, relaxing courtyards, a spa and sauna, and a sublime fifth-floor swimming pool.

Activity Level

Occasional

The riding is mostly flat and a good part of it is on dedicated bike paths. In Berlin and Potsdam, we follow paths and quiet roads to get an inside view of the interesting history of these places. The Spree Forest is also very level riding, where riders could be required to push their bikes over a couple of low wooden bridges. In Saxony we bike along the river Elbe, which is virtually flat. Options are available.
