Elbe River

After spending many years under the Iron Curtain in Germany and the Czech Republic, the Elbe River is home to some of Europe’s most untouched land. With a path running directly through Dresden, Germany there is no lack of poignant history along its banks. To discover the secrets of the Elbe is to discover Bavaria itself.
