Mooring 9:00 am Casting off 1:00 pm Guided tour of the Reformation City Wittenberg Excursion Package

The importance of Wittenberg historically was due to its close connection with Martin Luther and the dawn of the Protestant Reformation. Several of its buildings are associated with the events of this time. Wittenberg is home to numerous important historical artifacts, as well as portraits and other paintings by Lucas Cranach the Elder and Younger. On the doors of All Saints' Church, the Schlosskirche ("castle church" built 1496–1506) Luther nailed his 95 theses in 1517. During your visit of Luther’s House (a museum) you will learn more about his life and the meaning of his work.

The mooring and casting off times are approximate. The Elbe is not regulated by locks in Germany. This is why it has a shore landscape to offer unlike any other in Europe. However, it is also more severely affected by flooding and low water than other rivers. The Vltava, in particular, is not navigable at low water. We therefore reserve the right to make changes to the itinerary at short notice (route, excursions) if water levels are challenging. If due to low or high water or a defective ship a section of the river is closed to travel, the shipowner reserves the right to transport guests to excursion destinations along this section by bus, accommodate them in hotels and /or change the course of this part of the journey. It may be necessary to transfer to another ship.
