    On to the Czech Republic

    July 1, 2017 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    We headed out from Dresden, just out of the city centre there was a big second hand market along the river bank, we didn't stop, no room for extra stuff. At first the river still had wide grassy flood plains.

    We saw this flood marker not far from Dresden, the very top one is the 2002 flood.

    Gradually the river valley narrowed with dramatic cliffs. We crossed the river a couple of times during the day, and had an ice cream in Bad Schandau, to mark our last town in Germany. Shortly after crossing back from Bad Schandau we came to the border post, literally a post. We could see a much bigger border crossing on the road on the other side of the river. Suddenly we couldn't read any of the signs. But we know our bike route is route 2 so as long as we follow the '2' signs we'll get to Prague.

    Our day from Dresden to Decin was probably the one of the most beautiful of the trip. The area near the border is national park on both sides, Saxony Switzerland on the German side and Bohemia Switzerland on the Czech side. Some one thought the mountains looked like Switzerland. Luckily the bike path beside the river is mostly flat.

    Auf dem kleinen Bärnstein

    May 18, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C

    Oben angekommen hat man einen herrlichen Ausblick. Die Rapsfelder stehen in voller Blüte und leuchten herrlich Gelb. Ein wenig diesig ist es leider doch aber das trübt die Stimmung nicht. Wir entspannen uns jetzt erstmal bei Käse und Wurst und genießen noch ein wenig die tollen Blicke.

    Reach the high ground and you have a beautiful view. The fields of rape are in full bloom und have a beautiful yellow shine. It is a little bit foggy outside but this don`t negates the mood. Now we enjoy the beautiful view and relax with a Snack of cheese and meat.

    An der Götziger Höhle

    Die Natur lässt uns ganz schön ins Schwitzen kommen. Immer wieder geht es hoch und runter, wir springen über Bäume, Felsen, Wurzeln oder wir wandern entlang an kleinen Vorsprüngen. Die Felsen laden förmlich zum Klettern ein aber wir sind ja zum Wandern hier.

    The nature gives us a hard sweat. Everytime it goes up and down, we jump over trees, rocks and roots or we hike along little ledges. The rocks are good for climbing but we are here to hike.

    Die Riegelhoffstiege hinauf zum Großen Bärnstein

    Man merkt sofort, dass man nicht mehr abseits der Wege läuft. In einer Tour kommen uns Gruppen entgegen und auf den schmalen Gipfelpfaden muss man schon auf einander achten. Die tolle Aussicht entschädigt aber für alles. Jetzt geht es wieder Bergab.

    Now we know that we are back on the official footpaths. Without an end there so many groups we have to pass and on the narrow paths we have to look after each other. The good view repays us for everything. Now it goes downhill.
