One of the major rivers of Central Europe, the Elbe passes through the mountains of north-western Bohemia and crosses the lowlands of the Czech Republic into Germany. Embarking on an Elbe river cruise will enchant you with majestic sandstone rock formations, vast woodlands and Gothic castles.
Sail to the charming Czech city of Litomerice: a 10th Century town that makes for a fine fairy-tale scene. Walk through its winding streets and marvel at incredible architecture and must-see landmarks, including St Stephen’s Cathedral and House of the Black Eagle. Based at the confluence of not only the Elbe, but the Ohře, this is a royal city to grace with your presence.
Dresden is another location to travel to while on the Elbe, after extensive restoration following the Second World War. This now remarkable and contemporary city boasts lush greenery as the backdrop to the spires, towers and domes of the palaces, churches and stately buildings that line the northern bank.
Most river cruises will stop at Germany’s capital city, Berlin. Here, experience some of the country’s finest contemporary architecture, including the Reichstag building, Brandenburg Gate and the Berlin Wall Memorial, playing host to a number of world-renowned treasures and secrets of this German wonder.
