WCRVBB-21-ELBERADWEG - STAGE 03 - Hamburg-Hitzacker 113 km
Esta tercera estapa nos lleva de Hamburgo a Hitzacker, bella ciudad a orillas de río Elba y con un complejo sistema de muros para evitar los embites de las crecidas del río. La etapa es llana y sin dificultades.
La salida de Hamburgo es fácil y discorre por caminos asfaltados lejos del río hasta Geestach. A partir de ahí pasamos por un bosque frondoso con algunas subidas y llegamos a la bella ciudad de Lauenburg.
El resto son carriles bicis y carreteras locales a cierta distancia del río hasta Hitzacker
