Our favorite places and insider tips for the Saxon Elbland:
- Away from the famous tourist attractions, is the 2011 newly completed Military History Museum. Designed by famed architect Daniel Libeskind, it is one of the
largest military museums in Europe. The museum begins in the Middle Ages and ends in modern times. Located on different levels, you will find highly interesting exhibits
as well as different,changing theme exhibitions.
- My favorite experience is to drive the steam locomotive “Lössnitzdackel”, to hear the whistling, to sit in the old passenger cars and to imagine the people who have
been here before. Experience the fresh air and steam between the carriages as the train from a bygone era rolls through forests and fields to Moritzburg.
- Visit to one of the most beautiful mountain fortresses in Europe: Koenigstein Fortress, where Elector Augustus the Strong and his court were brought to safety during
the ‘Seven Years’ War. Connect it directly with a hike to the most prominent Table Mountain Lilienstein in Saxon Switzerland.
- Motorcyclists beware! Embark on a bike tour through the Müglitztal with Weesenstein Castle, the Bärenhecker Mühle or the German Watch Museum in Glashütte.
- We recommend a ride on the historic Weißeritztalbahn from Freital-Hainsberg to Kipsdorf. It is the longest serving narrow gauge railway with historic steam engines
operating in Germany today.
- Take a trip to Moritzburg with a tour through the fairytale castle and then enjoy a meal in the Churfürstliche Waldschänke Moritzburg.
- Discover the baroque city of Dresden in a different way with a guided Segway Tour or with the night watchman tour.
- Let your eventful day end with Flammkuchen and wine in Haus Steinbach, close to the Radisson Blu Park Hotel & Conference Center, Dresden Radebeul.
- In a land before our time – In the footsteps of the dinosaurs in the dinosaur park Kleinwelka
