48 hours in...


Vineyard walks and scenic cycling along the Elbe during the day, dinner in the picturesque surrounding of the Altkötzschenbroda village green – there’s a lot do in your 48 hours in Radebeul.

Day 1 in Radebeul: Friday

After a welcome drink in one of Radebeul's cosy B&Bs or holiday flats, the first highlight awaits: dinner in historic surroundings!

It's not an easy decision, but the good news is that you can't really go wrong when choosing your accommodation in Radebeul. Lovingly furnished hotels, cosy B&Bs, a holiday flat for the whole family and even your dog, if applicable – it’s very easy to find something to your liking in Radebeul.
To get your bearings, stop by the local tourist information on the main street. Here you can get information, tickets for events in the region, as well as public transport tickets. With good timing, you might even be able to straight away join a guided city , which is always helpful for a first overview.
The Altkötzschenbroda village green in Radebeul is an architectural gem with lovingly restored half-timbered buildings. Explore artists' studios, galleries, restaurants, cafés and small shops.

7 pm: Dinner

Dining in a vaulted cellar, beer garden or restaurant? Everything is possible in Altkötzschenbroda. You'll definitely find a culinary option to your liking in this popular part of Radebeul – and don’t forget to sample a glass of the local wine!

Day 2 in Radebeul: Saturday

Hiking in vineyards, a very special palace and a narrow-gauge railway ride – your weekend is getting better and better! 

Radebeul’s idyllic vineyards are best explored on foot. Wine lovers will find scenic trails, such as the Zitzschewig route up to the Wettinhöhe elevation or the trail leading through Niederlößnitz. Don’t miss!
For some, the best parts when out hiking are the breaks, and we certainly don’t blame them! When out and about in the Radebeul wine-growing region, you can have your lunch in quaint wine taverns and stop at wineries for a well-deserved break. You might pass by the famous Schloss Wackerbarth, Saxony’s state-owned wine estate, or the historic Hoflößnitz winery, both of which are very much worth a visit!
Who doesn’t enjoy a scenic ride on a historic narrow-gauge steam railway? The local Lößnitzgrundbahn runs daily between Radebeul, Moritzburg and Radeburg. You could even book a themed ride, such as the “whisky nostalgia tour” or the “Federweisser tour”, where you’ll be introduced to this special wine, which is a kind of alcoholic grape juice.

7 pm: Open-air stage or theatre

Opera, ballet or a concert – check out what’s on the programme of Radebeul’s theatre, and there’s even a great open-air stage outside town!

Day 3 in Radebeul: Sunday

On your last day, we suggest first a bike ride and then a trip to Saxony’s porcelain town Meissen. Or, depending on time available, choose one of the two.

112 miles of the wonderful Elbe Cycle Route run through Saxony, passing by Saxon Switzerland’s bizarre rock formations, the picturesque vineyards of the Saxon Wine Route and taking in towns such as Radebeul, Meissen and Dresden. Pick a stretch to your liking and enjoy a leisurely ride!
Meissen, approximately 25 miles from Radebeul, is not only a wonderful historic town on the Saxon Wine Route but also the birthplace of the famous Meissen porcelain. Stop by the “House of Meissen” for fascinating insights into the world of the “white gold”, including an exhibition and show workshops. You will also enjoy the mighty Albrechtsburg Castle, towering above town, the Gothic cathedral right next to it and the great views to be had from the tower of Church of Our Lady on the market square.
