Long an important delineator of east and west, the Elbe River links two of the most fascinating capitals of Europe—Prague and Berlin—as it traverses a land filled with captivating treasures.
This seven-night river cruise aboard the newly built Elbe Princesse II captures both the broad sweep and the fine details of these treasures: See Wenceslas Square, ground zero of the Velvet Revolution; the fortress-crowned crags and spectacular gorges of "Saxon Switzerland"; the Wittenberg church where Martin Luther posted his 95 Reformation Theses; historic Jewish synagogues and cemeteries; World War II memorials; Meissen's fine porcelain workshop; the treasures of Dresden's Green Vault; Potsdam's whimsical Sanssouci Palace; and the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin. From Bohemia to the former East Germany, the variety of visits and views in this part of the world is rich and unique.
For those wishing to lengthen their stay, a post-tour extension in Berlin is available.
