Description:

The Elsterradweg leads from the source near Asch (Czech Republic) to the mouth of the river Saale.

This section (130 km), from Wünschendorf to the mouth of the Saale near Halle, is particularly family-friendly. It is almost entirely asphalted and has few inclines.
The upper course cannot always be led close to the river because of the narrow river valleys. Not all sections of the trail are asphalted yet.
The Elsterradweg leads from the source near Asch (Czech Republic) to the mouth of the river Saale.

In the lower reaches, the cycle route runs close to the river through the varied Elster floodplain.

This section (130 km), from Wünschendorf to the mouth of the Saale near Halle, is particularly family-friendly. It is almost entirely asphalted and has few inclines.
The upper course cannot always be led close to the river because of the narrow river valleys. Not all sections of the trail are asphalted due to the existing topography, so that this section can be characterized as sporty.
The beautiful landscape, the interesting Elster viaducts and towns like Bad Elster, Plauen and Greiz compensate for the effort.
Intensive work is being done on the extension of the Elster cycle path in the lower reaches, so that significant improvements have already been achieved here in recent years.

Tour Description:
From Gera: near-natural and asphalted development, easy
