  Steamships in Dresden
by globetrott

For romantic people and those, beeing interested in old steam-ships I may highly recommend to take the steam-boat in order to explore the most important places along the river Elbe:
Ships will start at Dresden and go down the river to Meissen or up the river, where you may get to places like Schloss Pillnitz - Pirna - Rathen & Elbsandgebirge - Festung Königstein - Bad Schandau and sometimes even further to Hrensko and Decin in Czechia.
While other shipping-companies have maybe 1 or 2 steamships only, the shippingline in Dresden has only a very few other ships, but all of the rest are powered by steam !
Such an excursion from Dresden might take the whole day, but it is well worth it !
Where-ever you go upstream, you may also take back the train in order to save time, or get there by train and get back by ship.
