Pillnitz Castle and Park
coo***anThe Saxon town of Pillnitz is a district of Dresden, with Pillnitz palace and gardens on the Elbe River. The water palace is built on the upper side of the park like the reflection of the mountain palace. Both palaces combine post-Baroque and Chinese architectural styles. Two Asian-style palaces are located on either side of the "New Palace" built by the architect Christian Friedrich Schulicht. The most beautiful attraction in Pillnitz is the beautiful Pillnitz Park. There are many rare trees in the park, especially the "Dutch Garden" and the Coniferous Forest Garden-the "Coniferous Forest". The Grape Plantation Church designed by Pepelman is also a charming building, with its hip roof towering high and many branches entwined below it. You can go to the Brühl Platform, which is also known as the "European Balcony", from which you can overlook the Cathedral and the Semper Opera.
