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.
