Barockgarten Grosssedlitz
Write a review
About
Set in a landscape of rolling hills about 100 m above the River Elbe lies Gross-Sedlitz Baroque Garden. In this spacious garden visitors can still promenade as in the days of Augustus the Strong. The original style of a French garden has merged with Italian influences, forming a truly unusual garden, in which visitors will find a variety of fountains, flower beds, sculptures and orangeries in an individual and yet harmonious combination.

Amazing garden. Unbelievable views, corners, fountains, flowers... Must visit place. Up to 30 mns driving from Dresden centre.

This is a great baroque garden with some wonderfully shady walks, and lots of flowers. Not dramatically spectacular, but worth a detour if you are looking at some other sights in the vicinity of Dresden (e.g. Pirna). There is some construction work going right now, and the entrance fee has been reduced to reflect this. You also need to pay for parking, and the only option available is a 24-hour ticket (for 1.50€, I think)...
There is a restaurant/coffee place, too, which serves some basic food. However, service could be better, to put it mildly. I was in some way reminded of the "old GDR times": we weren't allowed to sit where we wanted (because a bus-load of tourists was apparently supposed to turn up - well, it never did), one of the waitresses didn't want to take our order because her colleague was supposed to do this (well, she didn't) and two of the four items we ordered were no longer available.

We visited this garden when early spring flowers were just out. The arrangement of the flowerbeds and the different flowers in them was attractive. There were a number of orange tree on blossom and with fruit on them still inside the building, but a show of them outside was being prepared - we were sorry to miss that.

It was a pleasant walk from the S1 station through the countryside to this attraction. It being March the trees were still leafless and the fountains silent. Nevertheless the scale of the gardens was impressive.

We enjoyed a relaxing walk around the manicured paths. There are numerous sculptures adorning the park, many of which are originals from the Baroque period. They are attractive and it was fun attempting to understand the mythology and symbolism associated with some of them.

We went there by train S1 from Dresden Bahnhof to the station Heidenau - Grossedlitz,than we crossed the main road and there we walked for 18 minutes Old Married Couples Walk to the gardens. If you have Dresden Card you have 20% discount, we paid 6,40 Euro for two people and also the train fare is covered by the card.It is the most beautiful garden we have seen so far. You could walk there for hours and feel like in the fairy tale. The trees are nicely planted, you walk in their shade in part of the way. There are more than 60 sandstone sculptures and vases in front of the rows of hedges, in the grounds or in niches.

On our way driving to Dresden we decided to take in the hilly region of Sachsische Schweiz. Our guidebook indicated a baroque garden along the route so we decided to drop by. What a great garden, apparently in the middle of no-where. This location was a summer residence of Augustus the Strong, Elector of Saxony, King of Poland and Grand Duke of Lithuania. The gardens are said to be the best example of baroque garden architecture in Germany. Obviously there are parallels to be drawn with the gardens of Versailles.

The gardens were for a long time in a state of disrepair. In the course of the last twenty years significant progress with restoration has been made. The number of flowerbeds is relatively few but the layout of the garden is clear, the stone work is beautiful, including a myriad of statues, and the fountains are in working order. This past week was glorious weather in Germany and a wander through the gardens and fountains was a beautiful way to greet Spring.

Relying on signage is not a guaranteed way to find this place, so having an address and GPS is pretty much a must.

There is a cafe at the gardens serving the usual refreshments and meals.
