We drive through Potsdam’s historic city centre with its finely restored buildings, past the Dutch Quarter with its attractive gables. On our way to Cecilienhof Palace we pass the Glienicke Bridge, which played an important role in the Cold War. We take a stroll through the palace park before going on to the Summer Palace of Sanssouci. Fredrick The Great had this palace built in order to escape the hustle and bustle of the capital, to live without cares (sans souci) and to immerse himself in art, music and philosophy. We have a guided walk in the beautiful park before transferring to the ship.

Arrival and departure times are target times. The Elbe is not regulated by locks in Germany. It therefore offers a natural shoreline landscape that is unique in Europe, but is also more susceptible to high or low water than other rivers. We reserve the right, therefore, to make short-term changes to the programme (itineraries, excursions) in case of difficult water levels. If a route cannot be travelled due to low/high tides or a boat defect, the shipping company reserves the right to take passengers by bus to the excursion destinations, to accommodate them in hotels and/or change the route; it may also, however, be necessary to change to another vessel.
