Easy Peasy Transfer to Prague with Great Sights Along the way.

We met Sarka, our driver and excellent guide, and were on our way. Our first stop was Moritzburg Castle, a moated castle surrounded by a beautiful forest, and also the star of the 1973 film Three Wishes for Cinderella. Back in the van for our next stop, Dresden. Sarka did an excellent job detailing the lengthy history of this town that was famously bombed in WWII. We had some free time in the Old Town Square to grab some lunch on our own. Lastly, the highlight of the trip for me was the beautifule Bastei Sandstone mountains. I highly recommend Sarka and this tour. We could have opted for the train, but this "Sidetrip" allowed us to see (and get out) and some interesting sights along the way. It was our first time to Prague, and Sarka answered all of our questions and gave suggestions on what to do as well. I highly recommend this tour. In the future, I'll always look for this type of transfer rather than the train. Can't recommend them enough!

    Moritzburg Palace

    What we'll do

    During the tour we walk around the Moritzburg Palace grounds admiring the garden and the park views. We do not enter the palace but we get a close-up look. On the steps of the palace is also a chance for everyone to find out if they have what it takes to be a fairytale princess by trying on Cinderella’s shoe.

    About Moritzburg Palace

    Moritzburg Palace is named after Duke Moritz of Saxony who built a small hunting lodge here in the 16th century. The king August II the Strong had the current Baroque-style palace built in the 18th century as his country seat.

    The palace is surrounded by a stunning park and gardens area. Ironically, none of the plans (and there have been many) for the garden have been fully finished, and the work with them is still continuing.

  • Stop 2: Dresden Old Town

    About Dresden

    Dresden has a long history as the capital and royal residence for the Electors and Kings of Saxony. Today Dresden is Saxony’s second biggest city after Leipzig with population around 550 000 people.

    The city is considered one of the most beautiful in Germany. It transformed into a Baroque landmark in the 18th century. This development started under the rule of the legendary king Augustus II the Strong. Most of the historic Dresden had to be rebuilt after the Second World War because much of the city was destroyed.

    The whole area of Elbe Sandstone Mountains offers incredible views. We visit one of the must-see locations - the Bastei Bridge . The bridge was built when the area became popular to visit in the 19th century.

    About Elbe Sandstone Mountains

    The Elbe Sandstone Mountains are situated on the border between Germany and Czech Republic. Both countries have designated the area as a National Park, in Germany the Saxon Switzerland National Park and in Czech Republic the Bohemian Switzerland National Park.

    The mountains here are not very high, the highest peak is the Děčínský Sněžník with 722,8 m on the Czech side. These sandstone mountains are millions of years old and eroded down by wind and water.

Martin Luther’s resting place

On the way back to Prague from Berlin, we were able to see Martin Luther’s resting place in Wittenberg. We also went to Miessen and toured the Albrechtsburg castle. Sarka was our tour guide and she was very patient to allow our family to explore and experience as much as we wanted. We had a great time and recommended her and Side Trip tours!

Awesome Experience. Best way to get to your destination!

Sarka was great! She was extremely helpful and informative as she drove us from Berlin to Prague. We were able to see sights that would have been full day round trips from one of the cities, but instead, we were able to stop and see them on the way. Her car was comfortable and she was very easy to talk to during our extended car ride. Would definitely recommend this if you are going from or to one of the cities they do one way tours.!

Great way to see cities and mountains!

This is a great way to get to Prague. The 3 stops are very different from each other and gave me a peak into other parts of Germany I would not have seen from the train. Our guide, Peter, was friendly and mellow, which was great. We did not feel herded around…After exhausting days walking Berlin this offered great quiet time and dazzling vistas and excursions.
