It is a somewhat less active, but just as beautiful and romantic trip on the Elbe. Experience the feeling of the centuries-old tradition of the timber floating industry on the river. On a raft reproduction (capsize-save floats, metal/timber construction) we are going to cover the 16km long distance. Due to our travelling speed of approx 4-6km/h you will certainly be able to enjoy this unique nature along the Festung Königstein, Lilienstein and the Bastei. Our meaning of being active is to hold the course with paddles and wood poles and to make use of the engine as few as possible (only in case of an emergency). On our 16km long ride from Königstein to Pirna we will berth at an idyllic anchorage and have a rustic barbecue for lunch right on the waterfront of the Elbe.
