Join me on a bike trip from Berlin to Prague
This is a trip I have always wanted to do. I’m not an expert biker (and may even use the e-bike) but I’m looking forward to the adventure. If you are a single traveler, couple or even a family, consider joining me on this amazing experience. We will be guided by my friends at Butterfield and Robinson, experts in designing, planning and guiding trips of a lifetime all over the world.
It’s going to be fun!
Between two of Europe’s most exciting cities, we have crafted a biking journey through world history. We cross the bridge behind the former Iron Curtain on our first ride and spend the whole trip on the “other side.” In Potsdam, we ride to a palace where the foundations for the World Order after WWII were laid. In Dresden, our guide will tell us all about the Peaceful Revolution—she was there! In between, we ride through the UNESCO biosphere Spreewald and enjoy an aperitif on a punt. We glide along the vineyards above Elbe river, explore Europe’s greatest treasury all by ourselves and hike through Saxon Switzerland National Park’s bizarre landscape. We cap off our adventures with a night out in Prague, a marvellous city that was miraculously untouched by the ravages of the 20th c. wars.

ACTIVITY LEVEL: 1
The riding is mostly flat and a good part of it is on dedicated bike paths. In Spree Forest, the riding is very level, where riders could be required to push their bikes over a couple of low wooden bridges. In Saxony we bike along the river Elbe, which is virtually flat. Options for more biking are available on some days. Given the variety of road surfaces, B&R recommends a hybrid bike for all but the most confident riders.
