Unique Enclave of Artists

In the eighteenth century Pillnitz was the summer residence of Frederick Augustus I, but also a real enclave for many great artists including outstanding composers: Carl Maria von Weber and Richard Wagner as well as the poet and thinker Friedrich Schiller. Today Dresden is a true mecca of artists.

Easy Access to the city centre

The Schloss Hotel in Pillnitz lies just above the river Elbe near the Elbe Sandstone Mountains at the Polish-Czech-German border. The hotel is located 10 km away from the centre of Dresden, which makes it easily accessible by public transport (bus, train) or steamboat. The last option is particularly recommended, because you have the opportunity to admire a magnificent view of the castle from the river.

Discover the Surroundings

Pillnitz is your must-see for holidays, especially if you’re looking for peace, joy and relaxation beyond measure.

Enjoy a careless walk in the royal park or picturesque meadows and romantic vineyards. If you like staying active, you can rent a bike and go for a trip along the river, heading for the Elbe Sandstone Mountains.

We spend a few days at the hotel and must confess quite sincerely we couldn’t have made a better choice. The location is nice, the room equipment leaves nothing to be desired. The staff were always most eager to help us. The breakfast was fabulous. Our parish wants to recommend this special hotel with all our hearts!

The staff members were so nice, so professional. The castle is like a fairytale one, the buffet breakfast is rich, the car park is free and the location itself is clean, quiet and cosy – a gem!

Perfect for tourists visiting Dresden, the Keep or the direct surroundings of the Pillnitz Castle. If you love painting the town red at night, that’s sadly not the choice for you, too far away from the Dresden attractions. Yet, it’s a very romantic place with lots of biking and walking routes on the Elbe riverbanks. On foot, you can easily get to the cruisne leading you to an old farm house in the Tudor style. Today it’s an interesting restaurant with a beer garden.

The location is great, the breakfast and dinner taste like heaven! And you can get to the Dresden centre using the public transport means without any difficulties. What a pity, there’s no wellness zone here, though.

A splendid location right at the Elbe bank, in the heart of the Pillnitz Park, which is truly breathtaking. The atmosphere in the hotel is impeccable, the staff members are very friendly, and there is a car park at the hotel if you need it. A tip: If you find a bathtub too inconvenient, you can always ask for a room with a shower cabin, there’s no problem with that.
