Visit Torgau during your journey along the Elbe.
Hartenfels Castle can be seen from afar. The most important castle of the German early Renaissance seems even more imposing as you get closer.
And Hartenfels Castle isn’t the only thing that’ll convince you to stay a bit longer with its beautiful inner courtyard, its church that was consecrated by Martin Luther, its rose garden and its various exhibitions… The historic Renaissance monuments in the old town also play their part. And why not!
Enjoy a bit of culture on your cycling tour and relax in a beer garden on the Elbe in the evening.
