Travel the entire city on a hired bike

Visitors to our city can now discover Dresden in an even more individual manner. The partnership between Dresdner Verkehrsbetriebe AG and the cycle hire system sz-bike (part of nextbike) means that you can explore the city on the Elbe in a flexible, independent way.

Get to know Dresden individually with the combination that best suits you:

  • Explore routes through attractive countryside
  • Leave the bike near a tram or bus stop and get a ride by tram or bus over longer distances
  • After getting out, continue to discover interesting districts by bike
  • What if the weather changes? No problem: leave the bike where it is and simply get back on the tram or bus. It's up to you whether you steer or leave it up to someone else.

Our subscribers enjoy other great advantages

Regular DVB customers can now stay mobile at any time, at a special price. With our subscriber's monthly pass and cooperation with sz-bike, we offer our subscribers another eco-friendly mobility solution: you can use the hired sz-bikes at especially attractive conditions.

So why not take the tram to an appointment then return at your convenience on an sz-bike? For you, the first 30 minutes are even free of charge! And you save a full 50 per cent on the standard charge from the 31st minute. Billing is per 30 minutes.

The bikes are scattered all over the city. Before pedalling off, simply register for free at www.sz-bike.de, charge your account with the minimum sum of €9 and get on your bike!
