River Labe

The 1,094 km River Labe (or Elbe in German) flows from the source in Bílé Labe, Krkonoše, Czech Republic to its mouth in the North Sea in Germany. It is one of the major rivers of Central Europe that rises in the Krkonoše Mountains of the northern Czech Republic before traversing much of Bohemia (Czech Republic), then Germany and flowing into the North Sea at Cuxhaven, 110 km (68 mi) northwest of Hamburg. Its major tributaries include the rivers Vltava, Saale, Havel, Mulde, Schwarze Elster, and Ohře.
