Radebeul – the core of the “Saxon Wine Route”

The town is located on the Saxon Wine Route between the river Elbe and vineyards near Dresden. Wine has been cultivated here for 800 years. The formerly royal winegrowing estate – Hofloessnitz – is the centre of the Saxon Wine Route, both in significance and geographical position, extending from Pirna through Dresden, Radebeul and Meissen to the Elbe wine villages of Diesbar and Seusslitz. Hofloessnitz has a 600 year history and today houses a vineyard museum with both permanent and temorary, exhibitions.

Radebeul is also the city of Karl May. He spent his last 24 years in Radebeul where he wrote his most significant works, for example: “From Baghdad to
Stambul”, “Winnetou” and “The Treasure in the Silver Lake”. The last dwelling place of Karl May (Karl-May-Strasse 5) now houses a museum which was established in 1928 by his widow Klara, the publisher Eucher A. Schmid and the circus performer Patty Frank. The latter put together the most significant European ethnological collection about North American Red Indians, the basis of which Karl May had already established.
