Great views. Unique mode of transport.

This is a must do attraction when visiting Dresden. It is a little out of the way from the city itself, however... the views are stunning. If you are one of these people that... read more

This is a must do attraction when visiting Dresden. It is a little out of the way from the city itself, however... the views are stunning. If you are one of these people that likes to travel on all kinds of transport, this is for you. Many elderly people enjoyed doing this for the view. There is a 15 minute... More

Schwebebahn is the oldest suspension railways still in existence in the world.We bought a return ticket for 5 Euros & had a lovely time.While going up felt the ascending car pulling up weight of the descending car & vice versa on the return ride when i felt that the rail was going down much slower than it normally would have!...

We took a tram no. 12 from one of the main squares and then it's a quick walk across the bridge to this cable car. If you have a travel car from the teams you get half price entry.... Making it €3 for the return trip. Distracting enough way to pass time. There is a cafe up the top service... More

It is the oldest suspension railway in the world, built in 1901 and is truly unique.It climbs 84 metres to the exclusive, neighbourhood of Loschwitz..The remarkable thing is that the ascending car is pulled up the hill by the weight of the descending car.We discovered this on our descent, when we found our car going downhill driver less!Quite disconcerting, but...

Good views on a nice day and a bit of transport history. Don't buy a separate ticket for this if you already have a day or week ticket for the trams (which if you've come out to Schillerplatz you probably should have!)

The Schwebebahn (100 year old hanging railway) is a fun trip to do from Dresden, a trip you can do in an hour or two and do cheaply. Take tram 4 or 6 from the centre of Dresden to Blasewitz/Schillerplatz, walk over the bridge that crosses the Elbe to Kornerplatz (10 mins max), Loschwitz. There are two hillside railways (both...

a cabin-lift that goes from near the river along the river slope up to the top of the hill. Best time to see it, when in Dresden Loschwitz they have the "Elbhangfest". Then the many artists who live in Loschwitz open their houses to the visitors for cake and a cup of coffee and at the border of the river... More

Before we begin - this is not even close to the famous Schwebebahn of Wuppertal. It is more of a cable car. Since this geographical point has two mountains, the Dresden authorities have created two mountain railways: Schwebebahn and Standseilbahn. Each is unique in it's own ways and each has it's special characteristics. Both of them take off very close... More

It was well worth taking this short trip up the hill. The views are fantastic and the railway itself is very interesting. There is a commentary on what you can see on the ride and a return ticket costs under five euros. Take the time to go up to the viewing platform at the summit station and if the weather... More
