Afterwards you will have the opportunity to stroll through the baroque old town of Dresden. Discover the world-famous beauties and the magic of this city with unique sights such as the Zwinger, the Frauenkirche, the castle and the Semper Opera House.

Passing the “Blue Wonder” and overlooking the castles of the Elbe, you will take the Elbe Cycle Path to Pillnitz. The castle park offers a flourishing backdrop for the summer residence of the Saxon kings. Behind the famous castle lies the vineyard church in the middle of the Royal Vineyard. Visit the well-known Zimmerling winery or, in good weather, one of the broom farms on the slope. Overnight in Dresden.

You cycle along the Elbe and the vineyards to Radebeul and reach Wackerbarth Castle. Where once counts resided and the court of August the Strong celebrated lavish parties, today Europe's first adventure winery welcomes its guests daily. Experience and enjoy a unique ensemble of baroque grounds, picturesque vineyards and modern manufactory - refined with selected events, elegant "Cool Climate" wines and the sparkling delights of the "Best Sparkling Wine Producer in Germany". Get to know the Saxon State Winery on a guided tour with wine tasting (incl. ) know. You will spend the night in Sörnewitz at the Winzergasthof Schuh. www.weingut-schuh.de. In the evening you will enjoy a wine tasting with a glass of wine (incl.)

Soon the city of Meißen, world famous for porcelain, is reached. The picturesque alleys of the historically grown town centre are ideal for strolling and shopping. Further in the direction of Seußlitz you pass the wine tavern "1. Weinkönigin", maybe it is already open. We can recommend a trip to Proschwitz Castle, the Proschwitz Winery is today the oldest privately run winery in Saxony. You will spend the night in Seußlitz at the Winzergasthof Lehmann. Here we invite you to a 4 wine tasting.. www1.weinstube-lehmann.de .

One of the most famous wineries in Meissen is certainly Vincenz Richter. Maybe you visit his winery or his restaurant directly at the Frauenkirche. After a beautiful bike ride along the Elbe to Radebeul you will reach Hoflößnitz. More than half a millennium of wine culture - it is not without pride that Hoflößnitz looks back on its 600-year history at the foot of the Lößnitz slopes. Once a vineyard and rural retreat of the Wettin dynasty, the idyllic, listed site is now a jewel of Saxony's wine cultural landscape and the first producer to dedicate itself entirely to organic cultivation and press certified organic Saxon wines. On the Elbe cycle path you reach Dresden again. Enjoy the last evening in the capital of Saxony.
