Radebeul Things to Do

  • Lutherkirche

    The other main church of Radebeul is Lutherkirche, located at the main road through the town, Meißner Straße, in Radebeul-Ost. It is an impressive building in Neo-Renaissance style from 1891/92 by Rudolf Schilling & Julius Gräbner. They used brick for the walls and sandstone for decoration. The church is north (steeple) - south (choir) oriented,...

  • Ev.-Lutheran Friedenskirche...

    The parish church in (Alt-)Kötzschenbroda, located on the eastern end of the main square, is more historically significant than for its architecture/works of art. It is aptly named "Friedenskirche" (peace church) as this (actually the neighbouring parsonage) is where Saxony and Sweden signed an armistice on 27 August 1645, which ended the...

  • Altkötzschenbroda

    The main square of Kötzschenbroda, has the form of a long and wide street, which was called Hauptstrasse until the villages united in 1935 under the name Radebeul. Since then it is called Alt(Old)-Kötzschenbroda. On the northern side a one-way street (west-east) runs in front of the townhouses, then follows a footpath, with benches and occasional...

  • Schloss Hoflössnitz

    Schloss Hofloessnitz (I refuse to use the term "castle" - it is more like a manor) is a very charming ensemble in a beautiful setting. It was built 1650 in late Renaissance style. The ground floor of the main building is home of a museum on viticulture, on the upper floor you can see the bedrooms of the Elector Duke of Saxony and his wife and also...

    more
  • Spitzhaus Stairs

    Spitzhaustreppe is a steep and long stairway that begins near Hoflößnitz palace and leads straight up to the top of the hill, to Bismarck tower and Spitzhaus. I have not counted how many stairs it has - many. Very many.The view is worth the effort!When you walk up, don't stop. Keep walking. No matter how slowly, but keep walking, otherwise it will...

  • Meinholds Weinberg

    The pretty house with the tower was built in the 16th century as winery and enlarged in the late 18th century. In 1792 it was bought by court typographer Carl Christian Meinhold.In 1840 the tower was simplified to its present shape. The main building was designed by C. E. Johne, a student of Gottfried Semper, and erected in 1851.

  • Hoflößnitz Palace

    The Margraves, later Electors and still later Kings of Saxony owned the winery in this location since 1401. In the 17th century, after the desastrous 30 Year War, Elector Johann Georg I had the little palace built, which was completed in 1650. It served as hunting lodge and maison de plaisance. The palace now hosts a smal museum about the history...

  • Bismarck Tower

    Monumental towers in the honour of Otto von Bismarck, Chancellor of the German Empire from its founding in 1871 to 1890, can be found all over Germany. After Bismarck's death in 1898, all in all 240 of these towers were erected, most of them designed by Wilhelm Kreis, all over the empire and even in the colonies. About two thirds of them are still...

    more
  • Vineyards

    The upper, steeper slopes of the hills are covered in terraced vineyards. Steep paths and stairs lead uphill. The view from the top is amazing.Elbe wines are rarely available outside the region. The amount of wine the winemakers along the Elbe valley produce is rather small so hardly any is exported. If you like whites, especially dry whites, don't...

Radebeul Restaurants

  • Restaurant und Pension Charlotte K.

    There are several options for fine dining on a special occasion in Radebeul; one of the best is this restaurant. It is located in Radebeul-Naundorf, on the main road toward Coswig-Meissen, meaning you have to go through the whole town of Radebeul coming from Dresden to get there. But it's worth the effort! And the train stops are only a five...

  • Waffel & Kaffee

    A perfect place to have ice cream, coffee, waffles, and even house-made cake, is this little place at the northern end of Altkötzschenbroda. You have to put up with some traffic (not too bad) if sitting outside, but you can have a table inside also if you like. Very friendly staff, quick and competent. The ice cream is made by Neumann's in...

  • Cafe Glühwürmchen

    We were looking for a relatively quiet place for coffee and cake, away from the busy main square with the traffic. This restaurant-cafe in the courtyard on the northern side of the square looked nice, so we grabbed a table outside. Very friendly service, quick and attentive. They advertised "house made cakes starting at 2 Euro", but there was no...

  • Bakery Günter Gellermann

    This is a bakery with two tables inside and two or three outside on the sidewalk, located on the eastern end of Altkötzschenbroda. Unfortunately the one-way street through Altkötzschenbroda takes its turn away from the square and toward the main road in Radebeul right at this corner, so sitting outside always means putting up with car traffic noise...

Radebeul Transportation

  • Driving

    Of course you can also drive to Radebeul. From motorway A4 exits Dresden-Neustadt or Dresden-Wilder Mann it is just a 2-3 km drive to Radebeul, well signposted. Major road B6 runs along the opposite bank of the Elbe river between Dresden and Meißen, but you can drive over the new bridge in Niederwartha to Radebeul.Be prepared that traffic jams are...

  • Cycling

    Getting to Radebeul and around town by cycling is very easy - at least for the parts in the Elbe river, not so much for those up on the plateau above the vineyards (Wahnsdorf, Lindenau, but these are rarely visited by tourists.) Radebeul is right on the very popular Elbe cycling trail, used by locals as much as by tourists. From Dresden's city...

    more
  • Tram

    Most convenient mode to get to Radebeul, commuter train S1 aside, is the tram #4 that runs from Dresden's eastern outskirts via city centre to Radebeul and every other tram even farther to Coswig and Weinböhla. This tram is run by the Dresden Transport Company DVB and also called "culture tram line" since it passes by lots of tourist attractions,...

Radebeul Off The Beaten Path

  • german_eagle's Profile Photo

    by german_eagle Updated Apr 30, 2015

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Naundorf is one of the former villages that formed the town Radebeul, and Alt(Old)-Naundorf is its centre. If you want to see an unspoilt village, this is your place!

    The houses might not be as beautifully restored like in Alt-Kötzschenbroda, but there are almost no (touristy) shops, restaurants and such here. It is totally off the beaten path, almost from a different world, a past century.

    The houses stand with their gable to the oval square, in the middle a pond (see pictures 2+4). The (privately owned) houses are homes of farmers, craftsmen, ordinary families.

    S1 railway station Radebeul-Zitzschewig, then a 5-10 minutes walk towards the Elbe river (southwards). Or regional train station Radebeul-Naundorf, also a 5 minutes walk.

Radebeul Favorites

  • Residential districts

    As mentioned in the intro, Radebeul has some large residential districts with beautiful 19th/early 20th century houses. They all have elements of historical styles (especially Renaissance and Baroque), but some appear in a style which is called "Swiss" - just like they imagined (or have seen) the houses in rural/alpine Switzerland, which was en...

  • Vineyards and viticulture

    Vineyards dominate the scenery, and the related traditions and local customs are essential getting a feel of the area.Old documents are evidence for 800 years of viticulture in the region. Originally brought here by the Bishops of Meissen, the Dukes of Saxony encouraged the locals to improve the quality of the wine.In the late 19th century...

  • Rose Bushes Blooming In The Vineyards

    When walking along the vineyards of Radebeul you'll notice rose bushes at the end of every second or third row of vines. A pretty sight when the roses are in bloom. However, being pretty is not the only purpose of these plants. The roses serve as indicators for a plant disease: mildew, which is caused by fungi. Certain types of roses, and these are...
