Prague to Hamburg

Jump to last reply

Soon we will embark on a river cruise on the Elbe from Prague to Hamburg. There will be stops along the way for day trips. Especially in Dresden and Berlin and Hamburg which may be too large to cover in one day what would anyone recommend as not to miss, perhaps of special importance or beauty or historical interest? Any places for photos? Also any outstanding restaurant? Also we look forward to Wittenberg with its Luther connection.

I've been reading several books...Dresden and also The Berlin Wall both by Frederick Taylor...and learning quite a bit. Hope to read Bonhoeffer by Erick Metaxas (though it is 540 pp). This is a new work but I'm familiar with this Christian martyr. Any other book or source, including fiction? My wife and I have toured various places in Europe and elsewhere and enjoy learning along with sightseeing.

Looks like the temp forecast for upcoming weeks in Germany may be highs mid 70s for the most part. Is that usually norm? That isn't much different than Boston rather than much of the hot U. S. I'll keep checking of course.
