  just across a near frozen lake, Schloss Pillnitz
by richiecdisc

This beautiful former summer residence of August The Strong was expanded for his use in 1720, though the scenically situated palace had been on the Elbe river considerably longer. These Baroque buildings were designed by P÷ppelmann with the Water and Mountain Palaces separated by gorgeous gardens that draw thousands of visitors each season.

Directions: Just on the edge of Dresden, heading towards the Elbsandsteingebirge.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
