  • We went in the car seems to go train or bus. Beautifully landscaped gardens are beautiful. Located at the back of the building, and received a cake and coffee. Quiet time is helpful. Is about driving a car in Germany, on the limitation of the 50Km/h road, is running at 55 Km, and from the road side shone flashes red. After examining various road speed violation enforcement cameras is located is. Keep your mind on the speeding ticket.

  • Really nice. Don't miss to visit. The Pillnitz Castle is amazing!!! We've apreciate very much visiting this magnificent castle. 
  • In the summer (we were in the last year) an eye way. Now in the winter, the Park is somewhat dull. But that's just on the season. Insgedsamt an impressive garden and Park as another example of pomp and pageantry at the Saxon court.

  • A moderately interesting series of museums. Very little of the exhibits are explained in English. There seems to be no cohesive link between the jumble of objects presented here for the public's perusal.
  • Good place, it seems a fancy place back in the day very traditional, the service were not nice to us. But the food was good
  • Das Schloss liegt direkt an der Elbe im Stadtteil Pillnitz stammt aus dem 18. Jahrhundert und besteht aus drei Gebäudeteilen. Hauptgebäude sind das Bergpalais, das Wasserpalais mit seiner großen Freitreppe zur Elbe und das Neue Palais mit Kuppelsaal, königlicher Hofküche und katholischer Kapelle. Dieses sehr schön gelegenes Schloss hat auch einen sehr schönen Schlosspark und barocken Lustgarten.
  • Beautiful park with a big variety of exotic trees and plants. I did not like that you have to pay extra in order to be able to visit all the buildings.
  • Nice park and castle, but not that much to see for the price (3 € for the park or 8 € for park and castle)
