"Steamboat" Schloss Pillnitz Transportation Tip by german_eagle
Schloss Pillnitz Transportation: 4 reviews and 12 photos
I think one of the best options to get to Pillnitz is by steamboat. The trip starts in the old town of Dresden (Terrassenufer) right in front of Brühl's Terrace with a stop near the Blue Wonder bridge (Dresden-Blasewitz) and takes about 90 minutes. Along the way you pass vineyards, castles, mansions, villas at the hillsides, the Blue Wonder bridge, see the TV tower on the hilltops of Dresden-Wachwitz. Just before reaching the station in Pillnitz you pass Pillnitz Palace with the best views of the water palace.
The old paddle steamers are interesting, too - old technology, well maintained and still working perfectly. I prefer a seat on the upper deck. From there you have the best views of the scenery. In case you're thirsty or starving, they also serve pretty decent food, soft drinks, wine and beer as well as coffee and cake.
The fare is about 11.70 Euro one way (in 2012).
