This is a great place to take the whole family if you are in Dresden. Lots of paths, a kid size train with three different types of engines, places to eat and relax, botanical displays and the Dresden Zoo.

The park is large, with a range of terrain from lawns, woodlands, thick forest, and lakes. It is suitable for picnics or just to escape from the city. The park in itself does not have a lot of facilities, but I found it reminiscent of...More

What a great spot. This park is great to loose yourself for a few hours. There is a large building in the middle of the park. The zoo is on one side. They even got a little train.

It's my first time going to the park when it's sunny. The weather was so perfect for a walk in the park. It's a huge area where you're allowed to cycle or skate. No cars are allowed to drive in the park except of those...More

This is a great place to go for a walk in the early spring as many crocuses of differing colors (the purple are especially pretty) are in bloom. The inside of the Palais is being renovated, but the exterior is lovely to look at.

We started our first day in Dresden by hopping off the tour bus and walking through this garden. The layout of the long alleyways is beautiful, and there is also a kind of woody part as well. Delightful to see so many young children and...More
