For a couple of Euros you get a ride to some magnificent views. If you're a photographer this is a good spot for you. I was told there were shops above and places to eat but there was nothing. It just takes you to a...More

Getting to the top, you have a stunning view over Dresden and the Elb river. Dont forget to see the machine building, where you can watch the wheels and wires

This Schwebebahn is much shorter than the 13km one at Wupperthal, but still worth the ride. The view from the cafe at the top is impressive over the river valley, the blue bridge, and the distant city. It is easy to get to by tram...More

We too the Funicular tram and this one, this one is the only one worth doing. It's a slow ride to the top. The views over the Dresden area are fantastic from the viewing platforms. Cafe at the top.

The Schwebebahn is a technical gem and takes you up to a viewpoint in a few minutes. Take a tour through the exhibition and enjoy a drink on the terrace. You can take it back down or hike back in about 15 minutes. Note that...More

I enjoyed the short trip and the view from the tower. The day was nice and sunny and the caffe on the top is simple but nice to sit, relax and drink your coffee while waiting the next wagon to come. Totally relaxed!

The Dresden Schwebebahn will help you to move to the small mountains, but later you will say thank you. With the Bus trip you will come to the Koernerplatz, I wrote about in another report. There you will find the Standseilbahn to the weißen Hirsch,...More

We bought a weekly Dresden travel ticket which included both the Schwebahn and the Steilbahn. It was a short ride up to the top of the hill on the dangling cable car. At the top there are some great views of Dresden and a small...More
