Local public transport
The Saxon capital offers its residents and visitors one of the densest local public transport networks in Germany.
Modern and traditional means of transport are merged into a carefully planned and efficient network. Whether by suburban railway, bus and tram, Elbe ferry or cable car: practically every destination in the city can be reached conveniently, quickly and inexpensively.
Those who want to explore Dresden and its charming surroundings at a more leisurely pace can turn to a number of narrow-gauge railways or to the Elbe paddle steamers of the Saxon Steamship Company.
The constantly high passenger figures recorded by the Dresden transport corporation (DVB) are proof of the popularity of local public transport in the city. More than 400,000 passengers use the broad range of services offered by the DVB every day.
However, a car is still indispensable sometimes and therefore the DVB has integrated a modern car-sharing scheme into its range of services.
