The Elbe

 There was a cruise down the Elbe River in Lower Saxony on a cold, gray day.

One highlight was seeing the Konigstein Fortress up above the river.  This is a massive structure up high and difficult to reach.  In the second world war, the Germans hid the important artworks from their museums and wealthy families in Konigstein.  The word "impregnable" comes to mind.

I have been enjoying your travel photos. My husband and I have been considering a Viking River cruise.

What an imposing fort dominating the river. Good thing the art survived WW II.
