Schloss & Park Pillnitz reviews
Cycling or a river cruise is probably the best way of reaching the castle. It is huge and hosts a number of exhibitions. The gardens and parkland add to the enormity of the complex. Highly recommended

Wonderful park and little summer castle in front of the city premises of Dresden. A bit sad that a lot of castle buildings still to be renovated after so many years, but pretty good shape from the outside and along the river Elbe.
One of the best places near Dresden to spend time with friends and family. Golden hour photographs will surely come out good. Recommended.
