The Elbe Art and Music Cruise

From the north of Germany to the heart of Bohemia, the Elbe River and its tributaries link the great cultural centres of Hamburg, Berlin, Dresden and Prague.

In the company of classical music broadcaster Christopher Lawrence, the Art Gallery Society of New South Wales’ Liz Gibson, and Berlin-based art expert Thomas Abbott, discover the art treasures and musical riches of these magnificent cities as you gently cruise the River aboard the M/S Elbe Princesse.

By day immerse yourself in some of the world’s greatest art collections, discover smaller hidden gems such as Potsdam, Magdeburg, Wittenberg and Litomerice and marvel at the natural beauty of ‘Saxon Switzerland’. In the evenings, enjoy performances in the new Berlin State Opera, experience a night at Dresden’s Semper Opera and concerts by the likes of the Berlin Philharmonic, Dresden Philharmonic and the Czech Philharmonic orchestras.

Extend your journey with an optional extension to Vienna, the city of art and music, which in 2018 will host special exhibitions devoted to Viennese Modernism.
