  • 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.
