Welcome to Dresden Region
Dresden is surrounded by a trio of fabulous castles as well as the porcelain town of Meissen. If you only have time for one castle, then Schloss Pillnitz has the best garden, Schloss Moritzburg has the most interesting interiors and Schloss Weesenstein the most romantic location. Alternatively, Meissen offers a castle, a cathedral and its immense porcelain heritage. For a time-trip to the DDR era, head to the excellent museum in Pirna. The museum and castles are all easily reached by public transport.
