A flat and spacious city, Dresden is perfect for cycling. Ask at your hotel or hostel about bike rentals or try Roll On, which also rents out motorised scooters.
Buses and trams are run by Dresdner Verkehrsbetriebe. Fares within town cost €2.30, and a day pass €6, valid until 4am the following morning. Buy tickets from vending machines at stops or aboard trams, and remember to validate them in the machines provided.
There are taxi ranks at the Hauptbahnhof and Neustadt station, or ring 0351-211 211.
