Dresden: Elbe River Cruise to Meissen

1. Dresden: Elbe River Cruise to Meissen

Explore the picturesque Saxon Wine Route on a boat trip from Dresden to Meissen and back.

Set off on the paddle steamer in the morning and reach Meissen at midday for a break of 3 hrs. Even from a distance you can discover the silhouette of the town characterized by its castle hill and surrounded by the hills in the Elbe Valley. In the town itself, you can visit the Albrechtsburg with its cathedral. Heading from the pier, simply take a right turn down under the bridge and you'll reach the castle after a 10-minute walk or by using the lift. Take a stroll through the town with its historical wall and visit the town museum or the porcelain factory. Meissen's Frauenkirche is also worth a visit. The church, built in the 15th century, is located in the center of the town, a few minutes walk from the Albrechtsburg. Ride on the paddle steamer back to Dresden and reach the city in the evening.

We had a lot of fun as a group on the Elbe. There was enough time to take a break from time to time. We were able to see the many different sights from the river and enjoy the weather on the boat. So it was possible for us to see Dresden from a different side. Contact with the owner was easy and very friendly. We would definitely recommend this event.

We traveled with our children and grandchildren. Both grandchildren felt very comfortable. There was a lot of interesting things to see. The service was super nice. The prices for food and drink were also reasonable. No excessive prices. We look forward to the next time.

The five stars say it all. The captain, who sells the tickets in Meissen and shortens the waiting times with his humor, deserves a special mention. Extra five stars!!!

It was wonderfully relaxing to sail for 2 hours on the Elbe, and back in 3 hours On board they were also very friendly

Just nice, to include a relaxing day in your holiday.
