Sometimes, the buzz of the big city has its charms. But it’s so much more peaceful in the many small towns along the Elbe. Here, you can chat with local shopkeepers in their lovingly curated shops, or enjoy a coffee and piece of cake as you watch the other visitors go by.
Sometimes, it feels like you’re in a bygone era surrounded by carefully restored historic houses and formidable town walls. Observant travellers will discover plenty to see.
