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...

You can sit outside in one of those (lousy) bars along the river in the midst of Dresden and view the ships passing by and have a nice beer.

Spend some time viewing the beautiful and nostalgic steam-powered paddlewheelers. Take a ride down the river to Meissen or upriver to Rathen.

There is a short trip of 1,5h or a longer one to see all the castles and the river benches. We had great fun, meet nice people on the boat, good beer, hey what you want more?

It's a really nice place to ejnjoy the sun by promenading directly at the Elbe. You can sit in the grass or on different seats to relax and to have a wonderful view to the Old Town and the Frauenkirche.
