Discover the rich history and culture of Germany and the Czech Republic on an Elbe River cruise. The route between Berlin and Prague is lined by soaring cliffs, Gothic castles and medieval monuments.
Many itineraries visit Potsdam, where you can tour the rococo Sanssouci Palace or the baroque New Palace, both built by Prussian King Frederick the Great. In Dessau, stroll the English-style gardens of Worlitz Park and tour Worlitz Castle, modeled after an English country manor. Learn about Martin Luther's life in Wittenberg and see the church where he preached and the door where he nailed his "95 Theses."
In Meissen, visit the factory where the city's famous fine porcelain has been produced since the early 18th century. Get an up-close look at the crown jewels of Saxon monarchs at Dresden's castle, and sample Bohemian beers in Litomerice, a picturesque Czech town.
Elbe River cruises are hassle-free because all the day-to-day travel details are handled for you by experienced tour directors.
