Hydration pack filled, bars packed and chain oiled? Wonderful, then you can set off on one of our single trail day Tours in one of the best biking areas in Germany: Dresden. Now that winter is finally subsiding and the sun is warming up the trails, it’s about time to finally head back into the forest. In this Collection, we’ve put together six trail-heavy MTB Tours that introduce you to Dresden’s diversity.

In addition to a fantastic network of home trails, two of the best bike parks outside of England are within an hour's drive of Dresden – the Trailcenter Rabenberg and the Bikepark Elstra. But the city's surrounding countryside has even more to offer: The region around Freital valley and the area along the Elbe Cycle Path offer many metres of altitude and trail descents for all skill levels.

To take full advantage of these epic trails, you can rent and test ride all of our mountain bikes, from light hardtails to full-throttle enduro bikes at the GIANT test centre in Dresden Neustadt. You can also buy body protection and other accessories there so that you’re ready to set off on an adventure. From the store, you can reach nature within a few minutes and, after your ride, you can relax in one of the cool pubs in this district of Dresden with a chilled drink.

    We are certainly not telling Dresden bikers anything new when we describe the Dresdner Heide with its single trails as an absolute must-do in the area. Countless shapers and riders do a great job here to transform the backyard of the city into an MTB Mecca.

    This exit is packed with flow, enchanted forest paths and beautiful views over the city. Relaxed flow trails alternate with one or the other crisp Enduro announcement and the demanding straken uphill over rough cobblestones is sometimes so steep that it is not a shame if you briefly descend and push

    This tour has it all: Not only the distance of 67.9 kilometers is pretty crisp without an e-bike, the 730 meters of altitude promise to make you sweat properly. On the other hand, you can look forward to a lot of trails on this exit to the house of the dead, which are sometimes flowing, sometimes steep

    Expert mountain bike ride. Very good fitness required. Advanced riding skills necessary. Some portions of the Tour may require you to push your bike.

    This tour is a real kneebiter. Just over 1,000 meters in altitude and 57 kilometers are waiting to be conquered by you. You will also be challenged technically, especially on the Rockbrothers Trail. Even with an e-bike, this tour is not for beginners, but it rewards with a lot of downhill fun and beautiful

    The Rabenberg Trail Center is the first trail center outside the United Kingdom to take over the structure of the bike parks there. Instead of the usual lift uphill runs here, you can cycle all the trails yourself. The Rabenberg Trail Center is not a downhill park, but rather made especially for cross

    On this relaxed half-day tour, you will explore the immediate vicinity of the Black Mountain Bikepark in Elstra (black-mountain-bikepark.de/). If you are in the mood for a small regional expedition after half a day of trail beating in the park, this trip is the ideal addition. In addition to cool local
