Nature and sportive Activities
In addition to the architectural and historical features that our beautiful Elbe valley and the region have to offer, you can also enjoy a spectacle of nature. In this way we would like to introduce you to a few possibilities how you can be active in the region.
Cycling through the Meissener Land
Combine a tour of the numerous castles and palaces with a cycling tour. The excellent Elbe cycle path offers you the opportunity to do so. Leaving the usual route of the cycle path you will find yourself in unspoilt green landscapes.

Hikes in and around Meissen
Meissen is not only for cycling enthusiasts. There are also around 18 different hiking routes that start in Meissen and also connect nature and culture. We are sure there is at least one route for everyone.

The Elbe River
Directly in front of our door the river Elbe flows, which has its origin in the Czech Republic and runs through Germany until it flows into the North Sea. With its more than 1,000 kilometres, the Elbe is the twelfth-longest river in Europe. It springs from a spring in the Krkonoše Mountains near the Czech village of Spindleruv Mlyn and runs for 370 km until it reaches the German border, after another 100 km you will reach our beautiful little town until it finally reaches the last 9,000 km to Cuxhaven.
In our region, the Elbe valley is characterised by a natural beauty, which you can even admire from a real steamship. Further information can be found here.
