River Cruise Night
Jun 26, 2019
The city of Dresden stretches out on both sides of the Elbe River and is embedded into picturesque slopes along the River Elbe with wine-¬growing areas through the Elbe valley. The Elbe River snakes its way through the city with a length of 30 kilometers. Nine bridges provide crossing points throughout the city.
After first day´s scientific programme, the Wednesday night river cruise will provide participants with some spectacular views on the city and its garden and wine growing suburbs. The tour starts in the historic centre of the city on the River where the Zwinger, the Semper Opera House, the Royal Palace, Frauenkirche and Brühl's Terrace form the typical “Canaletto View Silhouette”, before heading out of town along exclusive residential areas, castles, Wilhelminian quarters and vineyards. Upon return participants will have an idea why Dresden is said to be one of the most beautiful cities of Germany.
