This is a great place to take the whole family if you are in Dresden. Lots of paths, a kid size train with three different types of engines, places to eat and relax, botanical displays and the Dresden Zoo.

What a great spot. This park is great to loose yourself for a few hours. There is a large building in the middle of the park. The zoo is on one side. They even got a little train.

Close to the city centre this is a fabulous green area of lovely walks. Perfect place to spend a restful few hours away from the hustle and bustle.There is a miniature train children would love to take you around part of the park.

It's my first time going to the park when it's sunny. The weather was so perfect for a walk in the park. It's a huge area where you're allowed to cycle or skate. No cars are allowed to drive in the park except of those...More

This is a great place to go for a walk in the early spring as many crocuses of differing colors (the purple are especially pretty) are in bloom. The inside of the Palais is being renovated, but the exterior is lovely to look at.
