Decin Transportation: 6 reviews and 16 photos
In spring 2011 I planned on visiting Decin and thought "Why not cycling?" It is just 21 km from Bad Schandau to Decin, a well maintained, flat cycling trail along the river. And the scenery is gorgeous! This trail is a section of the very popular "Elbe cycling trail" which leads from the Krkonose mountains along the river to Hamburg.
Trains also run along the river so you can take a (regional) train to the station where you want to start and hop on another train in case you're exhausted. Very convenient!
Expect a lot of traffic on this trail. Beside the cyclers you will also see walkers, skaters, rollerbladers. No cars, of course.
There are benches and picnic places every couple of kilometers. More frequent on the German side, less so on the Czech side.
