Exceptional Location

The family-run Schloss Hotel is located on the grounds of the royal castle complex of Dresden Pillnitz near the vineyards and fruit orchards that rise above the river Elbe. It is the perfect place for a romantic weekend or a bike ride through the picturesque neighbourhood.

Lots of Attractions

Apart from a wide range of ferry excursions, Pillnitz in Dresden offers its visitors many exhibitions, concerts and other cultural events.

Especially for the guests of the Schloss Hotel we’ve created a cultural program, including tickets to the Semperoper, entrance to the Dresden Frauenkirche and more than twenty other cultural attractions.

Sports Attractions

Close to the hotel, you will also find two golf courses: “Ullersdof” ad “Elbflorenz”,

Apart from golf, the city of Dresden together with the surroundings offer you so much more! At the hotel, you can rent a bike and explore the Elbe biking routes leading you up to Dresden or the Sandstone Mountains. Enjoy the river air or rent a canoe and try something new in your life! In this way, you’ll discover a brand new and absolutely unknown face of the region! The surroundings of the royal vineyard in Pillnitz, as well as the large Sandstone Mountains, stimulate you to walk and breathe in the fresh air. The Saxon Switzerland is a paradise for climbing. And once the fresh snow appears, the Ore Mountains make you besotted with their beauty whereas the city of Altenberg invites all of winter sportsmen to stay for some time.

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.

Außenansicht Schlosshotel Pillnitz Zitat Bild

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.
