  • As in Saxony. Everything beautiful what Saxons built for big money. You can admire endlessly. And the gardens, and the building and the Interior. All super.

  • Very nice castle with large gardens right on the banks of the Elbe. the winter season is not propitious to the visit, the castle is closed until April and the garden, apart from the Palmenhaus where plants live in heated and protected, cannot provide the promised summer nelleimmagini

  • 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)
