Morning: Before departure, we'll enjoy a lecture on the World War II Bombing of Dresden. We are entering one of the most scenic areas of the Elbe River Valley as our journey continues southeast of Dresden into "Saxon Switzerland," where the scenery is almost as dramatic as the Alps. This area of rugged cliffs and bizarre sandstone rock formations extends along the Elbe River between Pirna, Germany and the city of Dìèin in the Czech Republic. The stone formations are at least 100 million years old and the soft stone has been sculpted over time by wind and water into dramatic columns of stone. Don’t worry about bicycling up mountains; however, as our route follows the flat bicycle path along the Elbe River.

Lunch: This meal has been excluded from the program cost and is on your own to enjoy the food of your choice in Pirna.

Afternoon: Our destination for the night is the spa resort of Bad Schandau. On arrival, you may want to enjoy a ride on the unique 50-meter high freestanding elevator, built in 1904, for a wonderful panoramic view of the Elbe River Valley.

Note: Biking distance: 33 miles

Breakfast: Hotel dining room.

Morning: Following a healthy breakfast, we’ll take a motorcoach to the Saxon Switzerland National Park for a lecture and field trip to the Basteibrücke, (a bastion cliff formation), high above the Elbe River with fantastic views of the surrounding countryside. After returning to the hotel, we’ll mount our bicycles once again and say “Auf Wiedersehen” (goodbye) to Germany and “Dobrý den” (hello) to the Czech Republic. You might want to practice your Czech language before the tour so that you are able to converse with the natives along the way!

Lunch: This meal has been excluded from the program cost and is on your own to enjoy the food of your choice in Decín.

Afternoon: We’ll encounter a few “undulations” in this part of the Czech Republic as we make our way to Decin, where the castle overlooking the Elbe dominates the city.

Lunch: This meal has been excluded from the program cost and is on your own to enjoy the food of your choice in Litomerice.

Afternoon: Just outside the city is the village of Terezín. We’ve arranged a lecture and field trip to the notorious camp Terezín (Theresienstadt in German), the "model" Jewish ghetto, where a cruel trick by Heinrich Himmler duped the world and left thousands to die. Built originally as a fortress in 1780 by Joseph II to defend Bohemia from Prussian incursions, it never served its original purpose. Instead, it was taken over during World War II by the occupying Nazi forces as a transit camp for political prisoners, Jews, Gypsies and homosexuals. Today, it is the site of two fortresses, numerous memorials, a ghetto museum and a Jewish cemetery.
