Torgau (Germany) river cruise port

The settlement was established by the Slavs (as Turguo) around a wooden castle (under the current Hartenstein Castle). The town started to develop in the 10th-century AD (as part of the Holy Roman Empire / 800-1808) around the stone-built Hartenfels Castle (Germany's largest fully-preserved Renaissance castle). The town also developed as a market town (since early-12th-century) benefitting from its strategic location on the trade-route between Leipzig and Frankfurt-Oder that crossed the river east of Torgau. During the Seven Years War (1756-63), in the Battle of Torgau (Nov 3, 1760) Prussia defeated Austria. After Wiener Kongress (1814-15, in Vienna) in 1815 Torgau became part of Prussia.
