Find Park Railway memorabilia in our shop to take home

If you want to take home a Dresden Park Railway item, you will certainly find something at the souvenir shop at the main station »An der Gläsernen Manufaktur«. During the hours of rail operation, you can also buy refreshments and snacks there.
Selected products, such as playing cards or memory games or the children book »Steam Engine Lisa On the Run« can also be purchased from our online shop.

The Summer Café at the Palace Pond

The Summer Café is located directly at the Palace Pond, right in the middle of the Dresden Grand Garden.
It offers many shaded seats under oak or chestnut trees or parasols. Those who would prefer sunnier places, can sit in wicker beach or deck chairs.
While the little guests find entertainment in the children’s corner, the grownups may enjoy a freshly tapped beer, a light summer wine, fruity punch or iced coffee.
During the summer season, there is a wide range of hearty meals. Guests may choose from small snacks up to a giant schnitzel or schnitzel cordon bleu.
What about a sundae, Dresden red fruit jelly or hot »Quarkkeulchen«, a local pancake-like delicacy, just in between or as a dessert?
Romantic lighting, background music and radiant heaters provide for a cosy atmosphere.
