Lauenburg on the River Elbe

The town of Lauenburg is idyllically situated on the river Elbe. The landmark of the town - the bronze statue called "The Crier" ("Der Rufer") - greets ships as they pass by. Enjoy a leisurely stroll through the narrow streets of the old part of town with its picturesque half-timbered houses. Or take a boat trip on the River Elbe, e.g. with the historical paddle steamer "Kaiser Wilhelm". Lauenburg Youth Hostel is situated high above the River Elbe and offers beautiful views of the picturesque river that flows past it.
