I enjoyed the short trip and the view from the tower. The day was nice and sunny and the caffe on the top is simple but nice to sit, relax and drink your coffee while waiting the next wagon to come. Totally relaxed!

The Dresden Schwebebahn will help you to move to the small mountains, but later you will say thank you. With the Bus trip you will come to the Koernerplatz, I wrote about in another report. There you will find the Standseilbahn to the weißen Hirsch,...More

We bought a weekly Dresden travel ticket which included both the Schwebahn and the Steilbahn. It was a short ride up to the top of the hill on the dangling cable car. At the top there are some great views of Dresden and a small...More

The cable way is a short ride that takes you to a good lookout point. The ride is very slow and quite expensive compared to other public transport.

Nice sightseeing, good to take cabin up and walk down following the yellow line to look around. Very good café and point of view in the upper station!

The tickets were not too expensive, but this is definitely worth it! Get away from the noise of the city and experience Dresden from high above it all. I definitely recommend. The ride is only 5-10 minutes, but the view is amazing.

We took the steamship DRESDEN for 45 minutes towards the bridge " Blaues Wunder " that survived the WW2. Walked for 10 minutes to the elevator/lift Schwebebahn. Had a wonderful panoramic view over the Dresden city and region. Came down by the same cable train...More
