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.
