Med flodbåt på Elbe

Cruise the Elbe river by steamboat. Dresden, Germany is divided by the Elbe, a river that runs from the mountains of the Czech Republic to Hamburg and the Baltic in Germany. Much of the river is navigable, and the stretch from Dresden to Prague (via Děčín) has long been popular for day trips and multi-night river cruises.

Sächsische Dampfschiffahrt, a.k.a. the Saxon Steamship Company, has been cruising the Elbe since 1836.

The company, has the largest fleet of vintage paddlewheel steamers in Europe. Seven of its nine historic steamboats were built in the 19th Century.

Jacob-und-Wilhelm-Grimm-Zentrum Berlin

The Grimm Center of the Humboldt University in Berlin is the largest free hand library in Germany. In order to mark the importance of the library in terms of urban planning, part of the building towers above the typical Berlin eaves. Like a cubic store of knowledge, the house joins the urban silhouette of the nearby Museum Island. To create an entree for the library, the fabric of the Berlin Dorotheenstadt was enriched by an outlying town square along the S-Bahn Viaduct. From the staircase-like terraces of the central reading room all 2.5 million media units can be reached: A central room that also enables decentralized work. In the humboldtian sense, knowledge areas are brought together in the library - and at the same time visitors are encouraged to literally cross the boundaries of these areas.
