Germany River Cruises - Viking River Cruises
Viking River Cruises has created spectacular itineraries on the Elbe River, sailing through the diverse landscapes of Germany. You’ll start in Berlin, where you’ll get acquainted with the friendly citizens and rich cultures of Germany. Museums are around seemingly located around every corner, and there’s even a Museum Island!
Before boarding your Viking river ship, which will serve as your theater, restaurant and hotel, you might also stop in Potsdam, host city for the post-WWII Potsdam Conference. The city and surrounding regions were popular with German and Prussian royalty, so you’ll also be treated to an abundance of beautiful palaces and gardens.
Since the Elbe was such an important river, there are several important cities that line its shores. For instance, the events that happened in Wittenberg have changed many lives. You might have to recall your high school history class, but this was where Martin Luther started the protestant reformation, and his impact is still celebrated to this day.
Viking River Cruises’ Elbe River voyages offer more than just man-made marvels and human history. For example, the Saxon Switzerland region shows off something that no man could ever make, the towering sandstone rock formations overlooking the Elbe and your Viking river cruise ship.
