Elbe Meadow, the River Elbe spring, Elbe Waterfall

An expansive summit plain where the River Elbe springs. The symbolic of the Elbe is marked with a concrete ring, but the river actually springs a little higher in a peat moor among the mountain pines. The coloured emblems of 24 towns that the Elbe passes through from source to estuary were placed here in 1968. The south-easterly part of Elbe Meadow is home to the 45 metre-high Elbe Waterfall.
