I will be in Dresden for two days in early June and want to buy some small lace items. Can anyone recommend me a good place to buy, preferably in the Altstadt where we will be staying or easy walking distance across the river in the Innere Neustadt?
I would be grateful if anyone could tell me if there is any free on street parking near "Johannisallee" as we are planning to visit a friend in that area. I just want to be prepared for our visit as it is our 1st time in the city with a car. I also don't mind a bit of walk if necessary.
Thanks in advance for any advice.

Who knows is there any left-luggage office in Chemnitz-Hilbersdorf Hp where anyone can left a suitcase(buggage) for some hours or it just exists at Chemnitz Hbf ? Are there in Internet any maps stations of DB ?
Thank you in advance for your help.
I am coming to Bautzen and would like to purchase patterns for the traditional Sorbian dress. Are there fabric stores there and patterns available? Can you recommend a store? Thank You--
Have been checking on the previous post and if the ride into Rathen or Konigstein is not too long, may consider doing this when we are in Dresden. Only caveat is that this will be our first day - so we are mostly looking at an easy way to get close to the Saxon Switzerland views without too much walking.
For this one excursion, although we love to walk, we'd rather keep this one short - so which one would be the best choice? ... how far do you have to walk from the S-Bahn station for each (For Saxon-Switz to at least see some of the formations) -
... and how safe is it at the start of December?
Have been looking at the Saxon Switzerland rock formations. We are traveling mid-December, so not looking at hiking. Are the S-Bahn routes from Dresden towards Bad Schandau mostly over ground as to offer scenic route across Saxon-Switzerland - or will I already get a look at this region if I'm taking the train from Dresden to Prague?
... planning to return for some hiking in the summer ...
Good day !
May I ask about Sachen-Ticket ? I have read that I can buy just one ticket and use it during a day in one land.
In my next trip I 'm going to visit Chemnitz from Dresden and then go to Liepzig in the same say. And I've bought Sachen-Ticket already. There is information about just Dresden or Chemnitz but Leipzig in this ticket.
Can I use it or not to get to Leipzig that day too? What was my mistake? What ticket should I bought?
Thanks in advance for your reply.
Hello I would like to know if there is a possibility to get to Siegen from Bautzen without switching trains? How long will the trip take? How much is the ticket cost one way?
My great great grandfather was born in Pulsnitz in 1831. His name was Franz T. Weitzmann. Are there any Weitzmann's still in the Pulsnitz? Barbara Weitzman
Hi everybody !
Who can compare the cost of arriving from center of Leipzig by usual local train (for 2 persons) and taxi?
In the site DB such information is absent - "fares not available". I need to know average values..:-)
Thank you in advance..
Should I buy the ticket in tram/bus if I had already Sachsen-Ticket at this day?
Hi everyone, I'm planning to go to Leipzig from 19–21 March 2013 for an international Conference of medical research at the University in Universitätsstraße n.1: does anybody have some good Hotel or B&B or any good place to suggest (not too expensive)? thanks, Marco
We are planning a 3 hour stop over in Dresden between train trips. My first question is, are the lockers at the main Dresden Hbf. Secondly we would like to visit the Old Town, is it easy to get there from the train station. Any advise on making the most of our 3 hours in Dresden would be greatly appreciated.
We want to spend about 10 days over Christmas visiting Prague & Dresden, listening to music, visiting Christmas fairs. We also want to spend 3-4 days over Christmas itself in a luxury/interesting country hotel that is accessible via public transportation from Dresden, a hotel/inn with good food and good walks. Any ideas? Thank you. Roslyn
Hello, does anyone know until about what time trams and busses run in Leipzig? (during the week and on weekends) Is it safe to use public transport at night? Many thanks in advance, Kristina

Hello all! I have some questions regarding hiking to the schrammsteinaussicht – the 417.2m viewing point of the Schrammsteine. Is the Schrammsteinbaude restaurant (stone cottage Schramm) the best place to leave from? I chose this as a starting point because it can be reached by the S1 from Dresden and bus 252 from Bad Schandau. From there, how clearly marked are the trails leading to the schrammsteinaussicht? Which route is the best to take? Will I need a map of the trails to get there and, if so, where do I get one? If anyone could give me directions/landmarks to look for that would be great! Basically, I have no idea what to expect beyond arriving at the restaurant. Thank you so much!

Hi all, I'm looking for a cheap, simple gym from Leipzig. I'm here only for a month, so would be great to get a one month- or 10-time pass. I've found only these high end super modern places..I like simple ones and yea, my budget is also quite modest. All suggestion are very welcome! :) Thanks, Elisa
Whereabouts in dresden is the Russian Orthodox Church. I will be arriving by train at the Hauptbahnhof.
We are planing a holiday in the Erzgebirge in May-June and are considering making Olbernhau our centre (we are with a car). While I have had some very useful information from the Olbernhau tourist office,as well as more general information on the whole region from the tourist office at Annaberg-Buchholz, I was wondering if anyone has any personal experience or impressions of Olbernhau that they could share. Thank you.
I've got about an hour maximum to spare in Dresden. I'm trying to work out what would be a nice, roughly circular, tram route. If we use the same road back and forth from the Old City to the station that's OK, but there's obviously a lot of options for something circular. Tram 11 from Hauptbahnhof all the way to Albertplatz, then back again on a #3, might do the job (it doesnt have to take an hour, less would be good). I guess the question might be better put "what's the best bridge to cross over on, and what's the best street that you really should do" and I can work it out from there. If you could also point me in the direction of some info on how and where to buy tickets and what the cost is, and the quickest way to get tickets for 15 (there's a whole gang of us) that would be nice but I'm sure I'll work that out eventually.
Hi, can anyone tell me if there is a place to store luggage in the station for upto 48 hours? Thanks
We are traveling from Munich to Heidelberg and would like to spend a week around the area sightseeing and lots of walking during June 2012. Have to rely on public transport. Is there a small village suitable to base ourselves with transport or would Heidelberg be better, and are there other villages to visit and walks in the area. Is this area in the Neckar Valley as I believe it is a great area. We are very flexible and open to any suggestions. Not sure if the next question needs to be asked in another forum but here goes. After spending time in the above area we would like to work out way down towards Strasburg but again not sure what route to follow. Thanks everyone.
We are planning a holiday in the Erzgebirge in May or early June 2012. We are thinking of staying in Seiffen (self-catering in a 'ferienwohnung') and taking day trips. We are still in the very early stages of fact-finding, but the general idea is to hire our car in Berlin (where we have family) drive south through Leipzig, stay 5-6 nights in Seiffen, then return to Berlin via Dresden and the Spreewald. I would be happy to receive any and all advice, tips, ideas on places to visit, in the Erzgebirge as well as tips on driving in the area - what are the minor roads like, for instance? This will help us make some sort of itinerary and enjoy the region to the fullest. I've spent hours on the Internet but there's nothing like the experiences of fellow travellers. Just to add some background - we are English-speaking, my German is very basic (my husband's doesn't exist) and we have only visited Germany twice, both times to Berlin this year to stay with our married daughter who is studying there. We loved the city but now we want to see more of the country.
Hello! I'd like to know if there is a "day" ticket for public transport in Dresden and what means of transport it includes. Btw, I bought a ticket from Dresden Hbf to Frankfurt, but I changed my hotel and the new one is closer to the Altstadt Bahnhof. The train stops at the Altstadt Bahnhof and then moves to the Hbf. Do you know if there could be any problem if I took the train in the Altstadt Bahnhof? Thanks in advance!
