Lauenburg an der Elbe

Die Schifferstadt Lauenburg liegt am Oberlauf der Elbe in herrlicher Naturlandschaft. Genießen Sie einen Spaziergang oder eine Radtour entlang des hohen Elbufers. Wer sich die Landschaft lieber vom Wasser aus ansehen möchte, hat dazu bei einer Schiffsfahrt auf der Elbe oder dem Elbe-Seiten-Kanal Gelegenheit.
