How to Reach Dresden


By Air: The Dresden-Klotzsche Airport flies quite a number of cheap flights around Germany and to many important destinations around Europe.

To get to the airport:

  • Take bus line 77 or 97
  • Tram line 7 to Infineon Nord where you must catch a bus
  • S-Bahn Line S2

By Train: There are two stations, Dresden Neustadt (northside)near New Town and Dresden Hauptbahnhof (near Old Town). While both stations are well connected to Germany and other European destinations, any Dresden travel guide will warn you to be careful to make sure you do not confuse one station for the other. That happens quite a lot in Dresden travel.


Public Transport is a mix of tram, ferry, bus and train – and it’s incredibly efficient. It makes Dresden tourism all that much more fun. The following tickets are commonly used:

  • Day Ticket: EUR 6.00 gives you access to everything but ICE and InterCity
  • Day Family Ticket:  EUR 8.50

By Car: Traffic can get crowded, but there are enough parking spots within the city that getting around in your own vehicle isn’t a problem. Parking lots will even display the number of spots available before you enter.

By Cycle: Cycle paths are clearly designated, and you can take them on board a tram (with a special ticket). Parking is obviously easy to find.
