About the Hotel

Palace with the history

This is an 18th century summer residence of King Frederick Augustus I of Saxony in Pillnitz. The Schloss – located on the premises of a castle complex, right at the summer residence of the King - serves as a private upmarket hotel belonging from generations to the Zepp family.

Frederick Augustus I of Saxony

He ruled as elector of Saxony in 1763-1806. He was appointed king of this region in 1806, and in 1807-1815 held the power as a duke of Warsaw. He inherited the castle in Pillnitz from his Grandfather, King Augustus II the Strong, and used it as a summer palace on the river.

Excellent location

The capital of Saxony - Dresden - and the green district of former rulers - Pillnitz on the river Elbe are a lovely place for the royal holiday.

The Schloss Hotel is situated on the premises of the summer residence belonging once to the king of Saxony. Majestic gardens, proximity to the river and stunning architecture of the previous centuries create a truly magical atmosphere that cannot be forgotten.

We spend a few days at the hotel and must confess quite sincerely we couldn't have made a better choice. The location is nice, the room equipment leaves nothing to be desired. The staff were always most eager to help us. The breakfast was fabulous. Our parish wants to recommend this special hotel with all our hearts!

The staff members were so nice, so professional. The castle is like a fairytale one, the buffet breakfast is rich, the car park is free and the location itself is clean, quiet and cosy - a gem!

Perfect for tourists visiting Dresden, the Keep or the direct surroundings of the Pillnitz Castle. If you love painting the town red at night, that's sadly not the choice for you, too far away from the Dresden attractions. Yet, it's a very romantic place with lots of biking and walking routes on the Elbe riverbanks. On foot, you can easily get to the cruisne leading you to an old farm house in the Tudor style. Today it's an interesting restaurant with a beer garden.

The location is great, the breakfast and dinner taste like heaven! And you can get to the Dresden centre using the public transport means without any difficulties. What a pity, there's no wellness zone here, though.

Such a pleasant welcome, perfectly allocated rooms. The egg dishes served at breakfast were really delicious, lots of choice. The service quality couldn't be higher.

A splendid location right at the Elbe bank, in the heart of the Pillnitz Park, which is truly breathtaking. The atmosphere in the hotel is impeccable, the staff members are very friendly, and there is a car park at the hotel if you need it. A tip: If you find a bathtub too inconvenient, you can always ask for a room with a shower cabin, there's no problem with that.
