Cruising the Elbe River

About the Tour

Begin with a stay in Prague before boarding the Elbe Princesse.  Embrace the broad sweep of history across this region from Bohemia to the former East Germany: Prague Castle, a sprawling 9th-century complex that has served as the seat of power for kings of Bohemia, Holy Roman emperors, and presidents of the former Czechoslovakia; the Wittenberg church where Martin Luther posted his 95 Reformation Theses; historic Jewish synagogues and cemeteries; World War II memorials; Meissen’s fine porcelain workshop; the treasures of Dresden’s Green Vault and Zwinger Palace; the famous Bauhaus school of 20th-century architecture; Potsdam’s whimsical Sanssouci palace and gardens, the summer residence of Frederick the Great, notable for the numerous temples and follies within its park; and the contrast of old and new in Berlin, Germany’s dynamic capital city and largest metropolis. An on-board lecture program and top-tier local guides will help provide context, perspective, and enrichment.
