If you are looking for a relaxing holiday home with plenty of outside space but in close reach to a bustling city, then this is the perfect place. It is a historical semi-detached house built in 1890 and has been newly renovated (but still there's a lot to do). Please note: The facade of the house is in the process of being renovated which means the house doesn’t look pretty from the outside, however inside it’s cosy, bright and spacious :-)
The 2 kitchens are equipped with all mod cons such as ceramic hob, oven, microwave, toaster and coffee machine. The bathrooms have a bath tub + shower, there’s a double bed in the bedrooms and two further single beds in the spacious living rooms. Towels and bed linen are provided free of charge. You also have free use of the internet/wifi.
I am the owner of the house but live in the city centre. This means you will have complete privacy and can enjoy the large plot of land ( (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) ) which comes with fruit trees (pick your own fruit :-)) and a lawn perfect for relaxing or a BBQ. There is still some landscaping to do in some parts so it has a real natural feel.
There is a parking space if you are coming by car, however there is no need for one unless you wish to explore other regions outside of Dresden. Dresden has an excellent public transport system and the bus stops almost right outside the door taking you to the city centre in just 20 min.
A bakery and supermarket can be reached by foot in 8 min and only 5 min away you will find the restaurant “Gasthaus zum Hochland” serving delicious traditional food. Opposite is the town centre with a lovely park, duck pond and the oldest buildings of this district.
The surrounding area is beautiful – within a 5 min walk you have stunning views of Dresden, the TV tower (Fernsehturm) and Schönfeld Upland (Schönfelder Hochland) – a plateau with gently rolling hills, fields and charming villages. It is also the perfect base for hiking tours in the Dresden Heath (Dresdner Heide), day trips to the Saxon Switzerland (Sächsische Schweiz) as well as romantic strolls through valleys and fields.
Other sights worth visiting include the three Elbe palaces (Elbschlösser), High Rope Forest Adventure Park (great day out especially for kids), Blue Wonder and the Dresden Funicular Railway. Cycling fans can enjoy Germany’s most popular cycle route along the river Elbe with spectacular views of stately castles, idyllic vineyards and the Elbe Sandstone Mountains. For wine lovers there is the Saxon Wine Trail, Germany's smallest wine-growing region and the most northerly in Europe.
