This is absolutely pure luxus. We were very satisfied with our stay there.
Friendly and effective staff, who were good at english, where our german vocabulary failed ;0)
Nice, tidy and very quiet rooms with view to the vineyards with their guard towers and a small ruin.
Excellent breakfast. We bought their 3 course menu at night (EUR 25), which was also an experience and could absolutely be recommended.
Nice park with a significant greenhouse for this 250 year old Camellia. Buy your ticket at the reception and get a discount. Take your tour in the park early in the morning or in the afternoon, as the park could be crowded with tourist.
Take the small Ferry across the Elbe. Just drive aboard in your car. Below EUR 5 for the car and two persons. It's just in the "backyard" of the castle and the fastest way to Dresden City. Otherwise you will have to drive along the Elbe.
Take a walk to the vineyards or go there by bike/car. Just 2 km. Good view of the castle, sourranding and Dresden.
It's possible to rent a bike (or bring your own) and discover the area along the Elbe.
Fortress Königsstein is only about 20 km away and an experience too.
We only missed a indoor pool or wellness area.
