From Hof to Berlin.

From Hof to Berlin.

From the north-eastern Bavarian town of Hof, the day's route leads eastwards and passes the Klingenthal located in Vogtland. From there, it's on towards Dresden. Those who fancy it can take a break in the Saxonian capital. It's worth it because Dresden surprises not only with its magnificent architecture like the Semper Opera House, but above all with its open way of life and Mediterranean flair. It's an appetizer for the ensuing journey through the Spreewald. Waterways stretch like lagoons through the countryside, a labyrinth of water bodies and plants. From the Spreewald, it's only another hour to Berlin.
