Dresden - city of culture

Paddle steamer cruises

As they journey between Seusslitz near Meissen and Bad Schandau in the Elbe Sandstone Massif, the ships of the Sächsische Dampfschiffahrt fleet pass through some of Europe's most picturesque river scenery. The fleet comprises nine historical paddle steamers, all between 80 and 130 years old, as well as two pleasure boats and two small motorised riverboats. Packages include discovery tours around Saxon Switzerland or along the Saxon Wine Route, trips to Pillnitz Palace, city sightseeing tours, jazz and Dixieland river cruises, and evening dance cruises in summer.
