Slow Boat Trip

Slow Boat Trip

[ Aug.2015 ] After enjoying the wonderful view of Bastei, we came down to the river.

The weather was too good to go back to Dresden, so we decided to take a boat going in the opposite direction.

The boat that picked us was a steamship called Pirna, which was built in 1898.

It seemed that they modernised it in 1994, but the old mechanism was used.

Very elegant, but very slow.

The time passed slowly while we drank a glass of local sweet white wine and enjoyed the view.

On the way, we went past Konigstein, a famous town with a fortress, but we did not get off and went all the way to the last stop of Bad Schandau.
