A highlight, with a paddle steamer through a beautiful landscape. To the right and left of the Elbe, pretty little towns and then the passage through the Elbe Sandstone Mountains - simply gigantic, beautiful and, thanks to good weather, an absolute highlight. Very good explanations during the journey, we were in Dresden for the first time and received a lot of interesting information during the journey. The care was very good, very friendly staff, the weather was autumnal but partly sunny, so that we could sit outside for almost the whole tour and just enjoy the day. All in all, a wonderful day and crowned by a short beautiful rainbow at the end before the end of the tour. The trip with the "Pillnitz" will remain unforgettable
Super 2 hour drive to Pillnitz Castle. We only booked the outward journey. That was a good thing because you can then look at everything with pleasure. We were there for almost 3 hours. Then you can take the ferry across and then take bus 88 to tram line 2 or walk 5 minutes to tram line 2. In the direction of the Frauenkirche center you drive about 30 minutes. You can get a ticket for 5 € for 2 people on the ferry, which means the ferry and 1 hour bus / tram ride.
This Tour was just wonderful and amazing. Something will be unforgettable. Well organized and the crew are just nice and so kind. And every station we stopped was just in time. Thanks a lot
Overall it was a nice experience. Considering that now is October, it is quite windy and cold in the morning, so I suggest to be prepared in terms of clothing.
We had a great time through out. Couldn’t find any option other than potato soup for vegetarians. If you can bring your eatables it would be more enjoyable.
