The 10 Best Day Trips From Dresden

    The city of Dresden, perched on the shore of the River Elbe, is one of the most beautiful cities in Germany, with a treasure trove of art and architecture that can keep travelers happy for days. However, the city is surrounded by fantastic locations that are also worth a stop. Here is our top pick of awesome day-trip options.

    1Saxon Switzerland National Park


    The magnificent expanse of Saxon Switzerland National Park lies just 19 miles (30 kilometers) southeast of Dresden. This park rewards travelers with views of imposing sandstone rock formations towering over the River Elbe, the Lilienstein mountain, Koenigstein fortress, and gorgeous wilderness as far as the eyes can see. However, the most famous landmark of this national park, and one of the most photographed sites in the country, is the Bastei Bridge connecting the massive rocks. The romantic town of Pirna and the spa town of Bad Schaundau are two extremely popular stops in the park. At the end of the day, if you are not ready to leave this piece of paradise, consider staying overnight in one of the hotels.
