From Prague bike along the Vltava River to Melnik, the Bohemian winemaking center. From there follow the Elbe River through Litomerice with its Gothic houses to the most impressive part of the tour, steep-sided valley in Bohemian-Saxon Switzerland National Park with fantastic sandstone formations above. The German bike trails then lead you safely to Dresden.
