the Gottleuba in Berggießhübel

The Gottleuba is a small river in the Czech Republic and Germany, left tributary of the Elbe. It source is in the eastern part of the Ore Mountains, north of Ústí nad Labem. After a few km it crosses the Czech-German border, and flows the rest of its 34 km in Saxony. It passes the Gottleuba Dam and the town Bad Gottleuba-Berggießhübel, and flows into the Elbe in Pirna. In July 1927, there was a flash flood in the river due to heavy rain.[1]
