The Elbe, a great variety

Sail Date: September 2012
Destination: Europe - River Cruise
Embarkation: Other

From Prague to Magdeburg and then on to Berlin this was a wonderful trip. the MS Schumann is rather small and the stateroms cramped but the energy of the staff and the excellence of the galley made this one of our best ever trips. Prague is an ancient city full of interesting architecture and readily accessible history. Do walk across the karlov bridge , visit the castle complex. Did you know that an American owns one of the palaces within the castle walls? Check out the town clock, the Jewish quarter and the old churches. While Wenceslas Square isn't much to see and the national Museum is really pretty poor ( at least for now) this square saw a great outpouring aginst the Soviet machine .

The river flows through some of central Europe's most historic areas. Do not miss Dresden, the Meissen factory, Wittenburg where you will learn more about Martin Luther than you thought there was and Potsdam,home to SanSouci, Frederick the Great's palace and site of the talks that divided More Europe after WW II.

Viking will feed you well. Our meals rivaled the big ocean lines that proudly boast of their chefs. This trip is a "Must do!"

PS: for you runners Schumann ties up near excellent paths and roads for at least five mornings. Less
