The cruise lasted almost four hours. Two hours up river, an hour at Pillnitz gardens then the return one hour. Passing graceful buildings from the Renaissance and 19th century. Open fields, birds and life on the river made this a very enjoyable experience. Food and drink available on board. Boats leave at different times of the day, the wait never... More

Just enjoy the same way the locals do and escape the tour groups. Rent a bicycle and ride along the River Elbe Bicycle-path to enjoy the landscape.

We were advised to take a look at this by our tour guide and decided to give it a go - as we found out it was well worth it. When seated the boat takes you down the Elba river and a prerecorded guide talks about certain important points along the way. It is a great way to take in... More

Enjoyed the river Elba's banks the paddle steamer and stunning views. A cycle ride somewhere along the banks is recommended. Really lovely.

This is a nice place to take a lovely stroll along the river's bank with a great view of the city and the other bank.

Great panorama. Perfect place to see the city from further away, see the boats pass and wonderful walks along the river.

Top experience. Steamship DRESDEN ( anno 1927! ) for 45 minutes to the Blue Wonder ( Blaues Wunder ) Bridge combined with a ticket to the BERGFAHRT for panoramic view of the city and bus ride back for only 14 euros. It was rather fresh autumn day but we enjoyed the old steam ship "Dresden" which is beautifully restored. Spic... More

We took the Elbufer to Pillnitz. It was a beautiful fall day and the trip was perfect. Reasonably priced and they offer several excursions on historic paddle wheeler boats. The running narrative was both in German and English and was very understandable. Drinks were reasonably priced as well.

Thank Jess B
