The E10 crosses the eastern part of Germany from north to south. From its scenic start on Germany’s largest island Rügen to its end by the Zittau mountains, it passes some of Germany’s least populated landscapes like Mecklenburg and Lusatia as well as the outskirts of Germany’s capital Berlin. A small part of the Austrian E10 section runs through the German Alps.
