Small group, full charter:

Elbe Boat and Luther Bus

Elbe River Cruise on a private river boat...
... with small groups of just 30 to 50 travelers
Perfect for congregations, off-campus seminars, Pastor's conferences
Close to nature and Elbe river wildlife
Experience small towns, and land in the center of Prague
Time for group activities on board

Profound excursion program

Overnight in comfortable rooms in local hotels
Followed by bus program, like to the Luther sites or elsewhere in Europe


Of course you expect to have a "private motor coach" when travelling with a group in Germany. Now you can also have your private river boat for groups of same size like on a bus tour! Starting from Lutherstadt Wittenberg the river cruise will take you to towns like Torgau, Meissen, and Dresden before finally arriving in the center of Prague. With a maximim capacity of 50 passengers the boat is small enough to give you an unparalleled experience of flora and fauna along the riverbank. We land close to town centers (and in the heart of Prague), always in walking distance to the places to see.
Sun chairs are available for everybody on the upper deck, while the air conditioned salon provides room to meet, chat, and play cards. Lunch and Kaffeetrinken are served on board, snacks and beverages are available from the bar. For overnight we walk from the landing pier to local, private owned hotels nearby, where the luggage already awaits us in our comfortable, non-rolling hotel room.


This innovative and exceptional river cruise concept is proven with many German groups over the past two years.
Exclusive by Terra Lu Travel, it is now first-time offered on the international market.

An Elbe river cruise from Wittenberg to Prague (or in reverse direction) can be the height of any bus tour to the Luther sites and central Europe. Just one of many examples:

Day 1 Arrival Berlin
Upon your arrival at Berlin Airport the group will be met by the Terra Lu tour escort who will travel with your group for the entire tour. A bus takes you to Wittenberg, the cradle of the Reformation. See the town of Martin Luther, and enjoy the churches and museums.

Day 2 - 8 Elbe River Cruise
Starting from Wittenberg we follow the Elbe upstream. We enjoy visiting towns like Torgau, Riesa, Meissen, and Dresden before passing through the Elbe Sandstone Mountains. Decin and Melnik will be other places to see before we turn right on the Vlatava river which takes us into the heart of Prague.
Having the entire boat in full charter allows a wide range of group building program. Fun and games, music and singing, bible studies and lectures: the group will enjoy the time on their own boat.

Day 9 Sightseeing Prague
The Golden City of Prague welcomes us. We visit the Hradschin castle district, cross Charles Bridges with its many street musicians, and admire the astronomical clock at the market. Dinner will be in a cozy restaurant in the old center.

Day 10 to Erfurt
We change from the boat to our private motor coach and head north to Erfurt where Martin Luther lived as a monk in the Augustinian Monastery.

Day 11 Wartburg, Eisenach
We visit Wartburg castle and the birthhouse of Johann Sebastian Bach on a day excursion.

Day 12 Berlin
Heading into Berlin in the morning the rest of the day is for sightseeing in the vibrant German capital.

Day 13 Flight home
Homebound flight from Berlin, after a boat & bus week in Germany.


This itinerary is a sample, based on tours we planned for groups. But no two Terra Lu tours are the same. Our proposal for you might be different, depending on time of travel and availability of services.
