  • The castle is awesome and the park as well. However, we've been there for the light show for christmas and it was horribly crowded. We literally have been pushed through the walkway. I strongly advise people to go there during off peak hours and summer only.
  • Spent a wonderful day there. Most of the exhibition was in English and German. Beautiful gardens. We were most impressed by the price. It was very affordable, and our entry fee covered a lot of different exhibitions. Definitely worth going there!
  • What a location. We stayed at the hotel. Rooms are clean. Excellent power shower. The restaurant was excellent. The staff are very polite and helpful. The palace gardens are a nice walk, and the view across the river is great. Take a trip on the paddle steamer into Dresden, it made a fantastic day.
  • A well done beautiful light show . Highly recommended . Don't miss it ...
  • This place can be reached by Bus no.63, in case you want to visit it, you must also consider the sites around it, exactly beautiful places and the people are very friendly, that is plus. Cycling is truly interesting.
