Steamer trips on the Elbe
Steamer trips on the Elbe
Steamer trips on the Elbe are offered by the Saxon Steamship Company. With eight historical paddle steamers it possesses the oldest and largest fleet of paddle steamers in the world. Two modern salon ships complete the fleet. The section of the river covered stretches from Seusslitz near Meissen via Dresden to Decin (Czech Republic).
The trips on offer include panorama cruises through the Saxon Switzerland and the Saxon Elbe Land, short cruises to Pillnitz Palace, city tours, jazz and Dixieland cruises, and summer-night cruises with dancing. Further attractions are afternoon coffee cruises with as much coffee and cake as you please, and special
surprise tours, where the destination remains a secret until the steamer casts off.
Check the Sächsische Dampfschiffahrts website for timetables and ticket prices.
