Elbe Cycle Route - restrictions

The diversion route for the bike path locked till 2018 on the dike between Groß and Klein Roseburg is largely destroyed. Although a way was built with coarse gravel to Breitenhagen. It is recommended for cyclists. In addition, here is the disaster with heavy technology in use during the day. Between Groß Rosenburg and Breitenhagen to go just on the street. Barby to Groß Roseburg is mobile. However, the ferries in Roseburg and Breitenhagen are not in service. Currently Breitenhagen is therefore the end, the street and the ship are still under water. From and after Calbe (Saale) must therefore be driven on the west side of the hall on the road. Between Gottesgnaden and Trabitz the way is severely damaged.

In the area of Bernburg-Nienburg a diversion for cyclists on Latdorf is signposted. Reason is the construction site for the bridge B6n.
