Located on the grounds of the 18th century Schloß Pillnitz palace, this privately run hotel enjoys a beautiful setting by the Elbe river, surrounded by picturesque vineyards and fruit orchards. Look forward to the romantic and spacious rooms of the 4-star Schloss Hotel Dresden Pillnitz. Wake up from a peaceful night's sleep to an excellent breakfast buffet. From April to October, sit in the beer garden, where you can enjoy draft beer and hearty meals. Tasty Saxon dishes are served in the cafe and sun room. When the weather turns cold, enjoy the cozy restaurant with its open fireplace and dine on delicious Mediterranean cuisine. From the jetty, which is just 165 yards away, take a ferry trip down the Elbe to the romantic Sächsische Schweiz (Saxon Switzerland) region or the cathedral town of Meißen. Alternatively, you can use one of the hotel bicycles and explore the area following the nearby Elbe bike path.
