Elbe Bike Route: Bad Schandau

My day started with a morning walk in the lovely town of Bad Schandau before breakfast. The air was crisp and almost no one was out there that early in the morning. I love roaming around small streets and get lost in its corners.

Yesterday evening I already discovered a blissful green park along the small stream as well as a magnificent lookout point higher up. It leads to other hiking paths but I did not venture out after a full day of biking…

While walking in town I noticed some houses were marked with the historic high water levels. The hotel where we stayed was apparently damaged three times by the Elbe floods and they had to close and renovate the hotel recently in 2013. The town looks peaceful but it has been fighting for its survival.
