Dresden railways

The Loschwitz cable railways are two of Dresden's most captivating means of transport. The 547 metre long funicular railway has linked the districts of Loschwitz and Weißer Hirsch since 1895 and overcomes a height difference of 95 meters.

The suspension railway between Loschwitz and Oberloschwitz have been in operation since 1901. The two passenger cabins are each suspended on a 256-meter long support rail and are pulled up to a height of 84 meters by means of a cable.The valley stations of the two cable railways are located just off Körnerplatz. They each take just five minutes to bring passengers to the top of the slopes above the Elbe valley.
