- The Elbe
Introducing our Elbe River Cruises
Picturesque though the River Elbe undoubtedly is, winding its way past dense forests and timeless scenes of rural Saxony, memories of a cruise are most likely to be inspired by the magnificent cultural cities and attractions that stand on its banks.
There are majestic Gothic castles and Baroque palaces to discover along with the great museums and galleries of Dresden which form, with an 18km section of the river valley, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. While away the hours in appreciation of the bewitching beauty of Prague, a city of spires and bridges easily accessible from the Elbe, and in discovery of numerous sites of extraordinary signifi cance beside the river itself, such as the Wittenberg church where Martin Luther posted his 95 theses in 1517, catalyst for the Protestant Reformation.
