Steam powered paddlewheelers

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.

we had a boat trip on the Elbe. That was really nice until a small group of drunken guys spotted my (coloured) girl friend. That part was not nice. But great was the help and support from many, many others. the boat trip was great and you are surprized how many great houses and places of history you can see... More

There's nearly no end to activities at the Elbufer in Dresden. It is not only a gorgeous area, and boasts historical places and buildings, but it is a photographer's dream and a great hangout. During the warm months, choose a multitude of outdoors restaurants and beer gardens. During the cold months, enjoy a hot drink from outdoor vendors or nearby... More

Really great landscape! My advice: book a steam boat trip one day in advance: one way to Bad Schandau and drive back to Dresden city by public transport (interurban train). Don't forget your cam and also enjoy the bridges and the Elbsandsteingebirge.

Elbufer, the part of Unesco Heritage, is great place to spend the whole day. You can ride your bike, skate, have a picnic or visit one of the many biergartens and have a glass of beer.
