Dresden lies on a bend in the river Elbe,  just north of the sandstone mountains of Saxon Switzerland.  The city was known as the ‘Jewel Box’ because of its baroque and rococo city centre. It was heavily bombed towards the end of WW2 but has been beautifully rebuilt. While the centre is relatively compact – you can get around it on foot - there are many attractions that require the use of the extensive public transport options available: the tram system, S-Bahn, local railways and river shipping. To these must be added the wonderful Dresden overhead railway and funicular; both located near the ‘Blaues Wunder’ bridge over the Elbe.  There is also the Children’s Railway by the Zoo and two local heritage railways:  the Weißeritztalbahn to the south and the Lößnitzgrundbahn to the north.  A third steam railway lies further to the east – the Zittau-Oybin-Jonsdorfer Eisenbahn or in short ZOJE. In the vernacular the abbreviation means “Train without any hurry.”!
We take you round the sights -getting used to the trains and trams as we go,  then make our day out to lovely Meißen. Out by boat, a paddle steamer, and back by train. Other visits: Schloß Pillnitz, Dresden Transport museum, Hbf, Neustadt and the VW factory. We end the film with a visit to Leipzig by REX that takes 90 mins from Dresden Hbf.  Narrated filmed in HD. RT 72 mins  Published August 2015 ©FHP 2015
