Interessant mit tiefen Einblicken in die Geschichte
Die Tour startet in Dresden, sicherlich ein Highlight am Beginn. Mit nur 35 km am ersten Tag startet die Tour sehr gemütlich, sodass wir einen Abstecher zum "Blauen Wunder" machten. Insgesamt waren die Wege sehr gut ausgeschildert, die Wege mitunter etwas holprig, da es etliche, wenn auch kurze, Kopfsteinplasterpassagen, gab. Die Einblicke in die Geschichte und auch die jüngere Vergangenheit waren sehr interessant, die Dörfer, die wir passierten, boten mitunter eine eher trostlose Stimmung, aber auch das ist eben auch ein Teil unserer jüngsten Geschichte. Obwohl wir mit "Rückenwind" unterwegs waren, wurden wir nicht von Gegenwind verschont, der mitunter sehr kräftig aus Norden und Nordosten blies. Die Tour ist sehr gut mit ganz normalen Tourenrädern zu bewältigen, bequemer natürlich mit dem Ebike. Der Gepäcktransport klappte perfekt. Insgesamt sehr zu empfehlen.

Die Seele baumeln lassen
Die Tour von Dresden nach Potsdam führte durch eine erholsame Landschaft, auch nachdem wir die Elbe verlassen hatten, weite, goldgelbe Felder, am Horizont durch dunkelgrüne Wälder begrenzt, das war eine gut ausgesuchte Streckenführung!! Erholung für Geist und Auge! Kurze Holperstrecken machten den E-bikes manchmal zu schaffen, der Akku löste sich einmal, der "Bordcomputer" musste über "Reset" wiederbelebt werden. Dabei war jedoch sofort die Unterstützung durch Herrn Wüst, den Ansprechpartner vor Ort, gewährleistet. Ausgezeichnet! Ein defekter Akku wurde umgehend ausgetauscht. Wir fühlten uns sehr gut betreut! Leider verpassten wir auf den letzten Kilometern die Abzweigung zum Radweg am See entlang und fuhren Bundesstraße, also: Dort besonders aufgepasst!!!

Tolle Tour
Wir fanden die gesamte Tour sehr toll. Die Beschreibungen und Tourempfehlungen waren super gut beschrieben (mann konnte sich jeden Tag auf die einzelne Tour vorbereiten). Die Hotels waren richtig gut und lagen sehr zentral (das Personal war immer freundlich). Ein Lob auch an den Gepäcktransfer, wurde pünklich und zuverlässig ausgeführt.
