Tip for an Excursion

The Gardens of Kings

Take a walk in Saxony’s most beautiful gardens, allow to be inebriated by their scents, experience unexpected views and gain undreamt-of insights. Relax in the spacious gardens or stroll in sunshine, accompanied by the splashing of fountains. And take a piece of Schloesserland home with you: a flower bed brick from Bad Muskau, a camellia shoot from Pillnitz, summer flowers or an Azalea from Weesenstein can all be purchased in those places.
