THE SURROUNDING AREA
Dresden can look back on 800 years of history and is well-known for its rich cultural and historical heritage. Whether you wish to visit the Semperoper or one of the other theatres in Dresden, , our staff are available to help you at any time and to make your stay at Schloss Eckberg an unforgettable all-round experience.
We can organise a sightseeing tour of the city or a romantic tour on a ship from the ‘Weiße Flotte’ for you – the ‘Weiße Flotte’ is the oldest fleet of paddle steamers in the world. Further up the river Elbe you will reach the wild and romantic landscape of Saxon Switzerland. Or you can visit the magnificent Pillnitz castle. The “Berg- und Wasserpalais” houses the museum of applied arts, which is part of Dresden’s national art collection. Further down the river Elbe you will pass Radebeul and the Karl-May-Museum, which takes you on to the Jagdschloss Moritzburg, the castle which was built on a man-made lake island. In Meißen, the porcelain manufacture, which was opened in 1710, is well worth a visit.
If you wish, we can organise a comfortable limousine with driver for a pleasant trip to the sights.
