No sports! Not in Riesa, because there’s something for everybody here. If you want to play 10 Pin Bowling, football, go for a swim or work out in a gym - even if you are looking for something totally out of the ordinary - Riesa’s health clubs and gyms have it all. Take a look around and choose the sport you like best.
Here’s something special for you – a bicycle tour along the Elbe river. The Elbe river bicycle path is among the most captivating and panoramic bicycle tours anywhere in Europe. You have 860 kilometres of breathtaking countryside from the German Wadden Sea to the Sandstone Mountains on the Elbe river. Then you can also take a break when you get to Riesa where you will be amazed by the Elbquelle, the largest iron sculpture in Europe, the convent chapel, the Pasta Centre, the Animal Zoo and a whole lot more.
Nordic Walking has become a popular sport for the young and the old. Riesa offers three walking paths in Riesa’s Municipal Park and the meadows of the Elbe river, and the only thing you need is a pair of good walking shoes. Walking is a gentle, but an effective way to train your body and get your blood circulation moving.
