Paradisiacal on the road

by bike

The Garden Realm of Dessau-Wörlitz is a wonderful place to explore by bike. But did you know that with the Elbe River Cycle Route and the European Cycle Route R1, two of the largest long-distance cycle paths in Germany lead through the World Heritage Site? Follow the well-developed network of paths, then you will come through the entire Garden Realm – almost as if by the way.

The most beautiful cycle paths

in the Garden Realm

From highlight to highlight

Garden Realm Tour "Fürst Franz"

Over a distance of 72 kilometres, the Garden Realm Tour “Fürst Franz” through the UNESCO World Heritage Site. On this circular route, you will not miss any of the highlights and will clearly see how nature and architecture were merged into a cultural landscape of world class over 250 years ago.

There is no better way to experience the 142 km² Garden Real in its entirety!

Across the Middle Elbe Biosphere Reserve

Elbe River Cycle Route

The Garden Realm is not only characterized by gardens and parks, but also by the dikes, floodplain meadows and forests along the Elbe river. Thus, the landscape south of the mighty river is not only culturally significant, but also of inestimable natural value as part of the Middle Elbe Biosphere Reserve.

Nature and culture in the most beautiful harmony between Lutherstadt Wittenberg and Dessau-Roßlau.

Through Europe, through the Garden Realm

European Cycle Route R1

The European Cycle Route R1 runs from east to west through Germany. In doing so, it enables a journey through time through European cultural history – the Garden Realm of Dessau-Wörlitz is of course not to be missed!

Take advantage of the fabulous route from Oranienbaum to Mosigkau to explore the World Heritage Site.

Let's go to the Elbe!

Mulde River Valley Cycle Route

The Mulde winds its way 175 km from the Erzgebirge to the Garden Realm, where it flows into the Elbe river between Dessau and Roßlau. The Mulde River Valley Cycle Route thus leads to the centre of the UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Tip: From the Elbe River Cycle Route, the Garden Realm Tour “Fürst Franz” and the R1, the route is ideal for a detour into the southern Garden Realm!
