Only a few kilometres from the Saxon capital state of Dresden, the charming town of Radebeul awaits its visitors. Eight historical village centres and two residential quarters characterise the wine, villas and garden town on the Saxon Wine Route in the region of the listed "historical vineyard landscape of Radebeul” .
Radebeul can be reached by car via the A 4. The Airport in Dresden is only 12 kilometres away and can be reached in less than 20 minutes. The local public transport is also very well developed, there are excellent city train connections. The town has four railway stations at its disposal on the routes Leipzig-Dresden and thus it ensures that there is also a connection for international destinations.
The historical buildings that were renovated with a real love for detail, imbue the town with a special atmosphere. The special ambience evidently reigned in bygone times because the nickname Nice of Saxony was given to this cheerful town. Regarding some of the people who chose Radebeul as their place of residence, this includes the author Karl May, who became immortalised thorough his novels about the Wild West. The Karl-May-Museum is housed in the former residential home of the family. You are sure to have an interesting experience when travelling on the narrow-gauge railways Lößnitzgrundbahn, which is also called Lößnitzdackel. It is exclusively operated by steam trains and it also travels through a delightful landscape.
The company headquarters of the Landesoper Sachsen “regional opera house of Saxony”, from which the national theatre of Saxony emerged, is located in Radebeul. Venues include the Dresdner Zwinger and the famous open-air stage Felsenbühne in Rathen. Alongside opera, the repertoire comprises operettas, musicals and ballets, plays and concerts. The Karl-May-Festtage are shows that inspire audiences year round. They are also co-designed by the Landesbühnen. Another attraction is the DDR-Museum Zeitreise “GDR Museum Time Travel”, which is a museum with a permanent exhibition of a particular kind. Here, the display of everyday objects from that time brings the visitor one step closer to life for those living behind the Iron Curtain.
In the Lößnitztalschänke guests will be spoilt with culinary specialties from the region and for moderate prices too. Fish from the Moritzburg Lakes and wild game from the Moritzburg Forest, enrich the exquisite menu.
