Dresden Travel Tip:
Cable Railways

Cable Railways
Schwebebahn Dresden

Because of its scenic beauty and magnificent view of the Elbe valley, the Elbe slopes in Loschwitz have always been one of Dresden's most favorite residential areas. Körnerplatz is the starting point for two cable railways: the aerial railway (Schwebebahn), which was built from 1898 until 1901, is considered the oldest aerial railway of the world and takes the passenger in four and a half minutes to the lookout point Schöne Aussicht. In the funicular railway (Standseilbahn) the day tripper reaches the popular restaurant Luisenhof in Weißer Hirsch, a part of the city that is situated 100 metres higher up than Körnerplatz.

Fares/Times: Roundtrip fares are 4 € adults, 3 &euro concessions. Consult the website for timetables.
