Once you get tired with all the architecture of Dresden, it's really worth taking a detour and stopping by to see a bit of history related to technology. A 1 hour stop to take the train up the hill with an almost ancient hill train is ideal. It's great for the kids and the parents also get a nice view over southern parts of Dresden and the famous Dresden Blue bridge. Service is really good, ticket price moderate (this is a short trip). After 5pm the place is not crowded (we were the only one's up and down!). We actually had to 2check if it was still open ;)
