From the cathedral town of Magdeburg, the eastern stages of the Elbe Cycle Route lead 350 km through the floodplain landscapes of the Mittelelbe biosphere reserve and the Elbe-Brandenburg river landscape to the Saxon Elbland, where the final spurt through the rocky world of Saxon Switzerland begins in Dresden.
The destination is Schöna, the last S-Bahn station before the Czech border.
Waterbirds, storks and dike sheep alternate with half-timbered villages, parks and world heritage sites. Since the Elbe River between Magdeburg and Schöna has hardly any gradient, the Elbe Cycle Route is almost flat and cyclists, families and day-trippers enjoy sailing upstream on the fast asphalt and gravel paths in the main wind direction.
The largest towns along the way are Magdeburg and Dresden, Dessau, Wörlitz and the Luther town of Wittenberg belong to the World Cultural Heritage. Other city highlights are the Renaissance town of Torgau and Meissen with Albrechtsburg Castle.
Over long stretches there is a right and a left Elbe strand of the Elbe Cycle Route, bridges and ferries connect the two strands. The guide's stage destinations are all at railway stations, so that the stages can also be organised as day tours with a return to the starting point.

Cancellations - non personalised/bespoke items
The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (formerly the Distance Selling Regulations) provide consumers with the right to a 'cooling-off' period to allow you to change your mind. Under these regulations, you have the right to cancel your order, without explanation, within 14 days of delivery (starting the day after you receive the goods) and to return the goods for a refund within a further 14 days (28 days in total). The Distance Selling Regulations do not apply to businesses nor to individuals who are trading or acting as a trader (buying goods to re-sell for profit) because no-one is the 'Consumer'. This means there is no 'cooling-off' period and the order cannot be cancelled once processed.

Where an order is placed for an item which is to be personalised or is bespoke, cancellation is not possible once production has started and these are expressly excluded from The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (formerly the Distance Selling Regulations).
