After leaving the old town of Dresden, you will see the three historic Elbe castles in the winter view from afar – Albrechtsberg Castle, Lingnerschloss Castle and Eckberg Castle were built on the site of a vineyard within 11 years starting in 1850.
Continue upriver, passing the famous Loschwitz Bridge, called the “Blue Wonder”, the TV Tower and the boatman’s church “Maria am Wasser”. Then we approach the fourth, probably the most famous castle, Pillnitz Palace. It is considered one of the most important chinoiserie castle complexes in Europe. In the past, the palace and park were the summer residence of Saxon kings, including Elector Augustus the Strong. A visit to this extraordinary place with its magnificent park, the Museum of Decorative Arts, the Orangery and the many palaces is always worthwhile!
