Upstream - Elbe in another way!

The Dove Elbe is quieter, more idyllic and cleaner than is big brother in the harbour. It's the perfect place to relax and maybe even to take a dip. 18km long, this anabranch of the the Elbe meanders througjh the idyllic Vierlande and Marschlande districts. Here and there it widens and assumes the appearance of a romantic lake landscape.

Water sport enthusiasts and bathing fans love the Dove Elbe.

With your bike, you cycle past Speicherstadt and Deichtorhallen through the Elbpark Entenwerder towards Allermöhe. Keep to the bank of the Elbe River.
