Elberadweg von Dessau nach Dresden
Auch die umgekehrte Variante gibt einen tollen Eindruck der Flusslandschaft und der Region wieder. Die Radwege unmittelbar entlang der Elbe sind auch für nicht geübte Radfahrer kein Problem. Auch die ausgewählten Hotels lagen sehr zentral und waren sehr gut.

Die Reise war einschließlich Wetter perfekt, das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis stimmig und der punktuelle Kontakt zu anderen Rückenwindlern angenehm. Besonders hat uns das Engagement von Herrn Wüst angesprochen, der uns u.a. telefonisch unverzüglich aus einer heiklen Lage befreite: Hotel in Meissen, alle Unterlagen dazu im transportierten Gepäck.

Schöne Radtour
Mit den Insider Tipps von Rückwind sind wir sehr gut gefahren. Das einzigste Manko war, das an der Strecke, die meisten Gasthäuser in der Woche Ruhe Tag hatten oder es gab nur ein Gericht!

Perfekte Betreung vor Ort durch HERRN Wuest und Herrn Seifert .Die Insidertipps sehr hilfreich. Bei der Affenhitze waren die Klimaanlagen in den Hotels in Dresden und Dessau überfordert,die Nächte waren eine Tortur.
