We jogged up and down the Elbe Ufer and really enjoyed the architectural giants, the classy villas and the open, flowing river with adjoining paths. It was a nice way to get a feel for the city, exposing many of the sights from various distances and angles. The bike paths are heavily used, so walkers need to pay attention. Also,... More

A boat tour on the Elbe is a must to understand what the river has literally brought to the world and the world has motored in by the Elbe. Starting by the bridge going East and then going back West you see how Dignitaries and royals lived by it, Universities were created, historic breweries and original ice wine vineyards, bridges...

in the Winter it does NOT look so good, but if you come during Spring, Summer and Fall it is more investing to take a stroll or a River Cruise on the Elbe.

We made several hours bike trip on very nice roads along Elba river shores both downstream and upstream. There is a nice windmill on the left shore downstream from city center. If the whether is fine, take your chance and enjoy!

A stroll along the banks of the Elbe on a sunny day is a most pleasant experience. Starting near the Augustus Bridge and following along the path heading east you encounter a number of wonderful sights and activities. It is about a 3.5 mile walk, jog or bike ride to the Blue Wonder bridge with paddlewheel boats steaming in both... More

The Elbufer - banks of the Elbe - is a excellent place to enjoy in a hot summer day looking at the river, tourist ships an having a cool glas of good local white wine.

The banks of river Elbe are a must see in summer! There's nothing quite like hanging out there with a beer from the Fährgarten and watching the sun set over the idyllic scenery. In summer. All that applies during summer. Maybe spring. But not in Winter or Autumn. Bring friends, blankets, drinks. When it's really warm, it's even good for... More

Dresden is known as the Florence of Elbe, because of it's classic skyline. But this jewel box of city has something more to offer besides beautiful buildings. It has the world's oldest and largest paddle steamer fleet to cruise the Elbe River. During the cold winter months these paddle steamers give local rides and during the warm summer months the...

Walking along the Elbe will offer you one of the best views onto Dresden with it's baroque buildings and at the same time a wonderful escape from the bustling city center. And it is here that you will also understand why Dresden has also been called Elbflorenz or Florenz of the North ever since the 19th century. As you can... More

Beautiful walk along the river between the old "Augustus-bridge" ( built in1287 and at that time the oldest stone bridge north of the Alps ) and the new Carola-bridge. You will admire the "Elbe-fleet", a dozen old steamers, many of them with paddle-wheels. Unfortunately I had to cancel my boat-trip to Meissen because of the extreme drought, no navigation on...
