Lauenburg an der Elbe
The Essential
Located on the Old Salt Route, the town boasts a number of half-timbered houses built between the 16C and 19C. The keep is all that remains of a castle started in 1182. Don't miss the Elbe Shipping Museum, which charts the history of river shipping between Bohemia and Hamburg.
