The gardens are very extensive and the miniature railway is worth a ride. You could easily spend an entire day here, and the train makes it easier to get around (assuming that you visit on a day when it is running).

We walked from the city centre and it was well worth it. It covers a huge area and you can walk through the trees. The English garden was beautiful and so colourful in May.
Lots of seats and you could really spend a day there.
We were lucky to visit on a Friday with a local market.

As we walked around the Dresden historic and artistic areas, we were amazed and were in awe of the area. We had been in Berlin prior to our visit to Dresden and we will plan to spend more time in Dresden the next time.

We started our first day in Dresden by hopping off the tour bus and walking through this garden. The layout of the long alleyways is beautiful, and there is also a kind of woody part as well. Delightful to see so many young children and also so many bikers (I mean bicyclists). Palace very nice, with some concerts and exhibits.

We entered the park from the side which is further from town centre. Lot of people were jogging and running there and all I could do was to envy them. Next time I'm bringing my running gear as well. The area is very large and everyone can choose the aktivity. You can do sports - in-lining, cycling, running, walking; enjoy the plants - ie. dahlia collection; you can have a picnic; we rented a boat for 30 minutes and it was quite fun. If you are tired of walking you can go by the train on light railway. There are infinite options for family activities. Just please be respectful and don't leave any of your trash there. The park is very well maintained.
The food options in the park are limited and quite pricey so we chose to bring our own food.

We hire some bikes and rode though this massive park. You truly feel like you have the park to yourself it is that big. The miniature railway looked amazing and those with children will adore this. If you like open spaces this is a great place to visit.

We enjoyed a lovely walk through this park in the autumn. There is a palace that you can see from outside and a water feature. An easy walk from the city centre.

Dresden was so busy with tourists I wanted to find a quiet spot. The Grosser Garten is very easy to get to on the bus from central Dresden. In the park there is lots to see and do. I went on the miniature railway. It’s entirely run by children and they do a superb job. The train will take you around most of the park. The other thing I did was enjoy an excellent lunch in Carollaschlossen restaurant by the lake.

The park is large, with a range of terrain from lawns, woodlands, thick forest, and lakes. It is suitable for picnics or just to escape from the city. The park in itself does not have a lot of facilities, but I found it reminiscent of the Prater in Wien with its park railway.
