It is a good alternative if you want to leave the car behind. You can get through the city without traffic jams or looking for a parking space and you can also have a beer every now and then.

We were in Dresden for 3 days and wanted to move around there without a car. With the 3-day ticket we were well equipped and could commute back and forth through the city.

Dresden is very well equipped with public transport connections. You can go anywhere. Depending on where you live, you don't need 3 days.

Der Wallpavillon hat ca 50 Zuschauer, ein kleines feines live Konzert, es war sehr schön.
