I want to visit Augustusburg from Dresden which seems perfectly possible. My questions are now:
1) Going to the Augustusburg railway station, do I need to catch a cable car up to the castle or am I already close by?
2) How much time would you spend in the town itself after the castle? Are the good Erzgebirge viewpoints near castle/station?
3) Can I use a Land-ticket if I want to make a detour over Chemnitz (rather than change directly at Flöhr)? Or would a bus from Chemnitz in fact be more scenic than the Flöhr route?
