The right number of like-minded travellers to make new friends.
Your dates. Your group. Our expertly-designed itinerary.
Tailored to your interests, a bespoke travel experience.
Combines the hallmarks of any B&R itinerary (excellent hotels and beautiful routes) with the freedom of pacing each day exactly the way you like.
Throughout the day, a knowledgeable local guide provides insider access and expert tips. At night, you can explore and dine on your own.
Our B&R guides are with you throughout, anticipating needs, translating languages, providing advice and—above all—facilitating fun.
We use 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.
These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.
“I can’t say I really ‘work out,’ but I’m in good shape and am relatively active.”
“I enjoy a good walk or ride, and feel comfortable while on the move.”
“I get moving at least once a week, and don’t mind a little sweat.”
“I get moving a few times per week and enjoy some exertion.”
“I want to feel invigorated each day and going hard is how I like to do that.”
Biking Between the Capitals of Cool
From the pulsating energy of Berlin to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Dresden, Germany still resonates as a flashpoint in history—but also a country with a progressive edge. Combine our urban explorations with rides that take us into the stunning countryside of Swiss Saxony, and the Elbe and Vltava River Valleys. Our Central European odyssey culminates in an evening peruse and unforgettable feast deep in the gothic beauty of Prague. Enjoy lunch on a punt, carefree moments in a biergarten on the Elbe and the deep silence of the New Green Vault. Wrap it in unparalleled B&R hospitality and experience a journey that peeks behind the Iron Curtain and covers the ages.

Zur Bleiche Resort & Spa, Burg
Set amid the peaceful Spreewald forest, the 18th-century Hotel Zur Bleiche 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. Beyond the imposing façade of this meticulously reconstructed royal palace lie equally regal amenities: sitting rooms, relaxing courtyards, a spa, and a sublime fifth-floor swimming pool.

The Augustine Hotel, Prague
A former monastery cum 5-star urban retreat, the Augustine is nestled at the foot of Prague Castle, has an extensive spa, and exudes the serenity of its ecclesiastical past. Nip at an archangel cocktail in the former refectory, now hotel bar, and reflect on how good life can be. View hotel website »
This was my first B&R trip and first biking trip ever. I was so impressed by all the little details and the general experience. My most memorable moment was simply getting to know the people on the trip and taking part in the rides. Our trip was amazing—it was fun, active, adventurous, unique and a great way to see a new part of the world.— Robin Storfer
We never wanted to be the biggest travel company in the world, just the best.
— George Butterfield
The riding is mostly flat and a good part of it is on dedicated bike paths. In Berlin 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 for more biking are available almost everyday. Given the variety of road surfaces, B&R recommends a hybrid bike for all but the most confident riders.
“I ride my bike once or twice a month and am comfortable on two wheels.”
Relatively flat but will include inclines and the occasional climb or two.Read more on our Activity Levels
