Narrow Gauge Railway to Moritzburg
Radebeul Ost station is the starting point of the narrow gauge railway to Radeburg and Moritzburg. This train route along Lößnitzgrund valley is operated by historical steam trains, nicknamed Lößnitzdackel (dachshund) due to their speed, or lack thereof.
If you plan to visit Moritzburg place, which is herewith highly recommended, these trains are not the fastest but the most romantic way of getting there. They are fun to ride.

Getting to Radebeul is easy - The Suburban Railway (S-Bahn) #1 runs every 30 minutes along the route Schöna - (Dresden -) Radebeul - Meissen.
Radebeul has three stops: Ost, Weintraube and West. For Kötzschenbroda and Schloss Wackerbarth get off at Radebeul-West, for Hoflössnitz and the most beautiful residential areas get off at Weintraube.
Radebeul has its own tarif zone in the public transportation network, so you need to buy a ticket for two zones from Dresden.
Single trip 1.70 Euro, for two zones 3.40 Euro
Better buy a 4-trip (or zones) ticket. Validate 2 of those zones if you start in Dresden. And the other two zones when you go back. This ticket costs 6 Euro, so it saves you 0.80 Euro.
