Lollis favourite Outdoor Baths

Nostalgic feeling, it is like one of the GDR baths 25 years ago, surrounded by the old village Mockritz.

Since the city of Dresden in situated in the Elbe River valley, you have to leave the valley first to get to the next situated lakes for swimming. That takes a little time, but once you reach the uplands you will be rewarded with a beautiful landscape and very attractive lakes for your chill out day! Here are my recommended and favourite baths in Dresden:


small beautiful Nature Bath with Kneipp water- treading basin, biotope with fishes, lawn for sunbathing and snack bar

get there via tram No. 13 direction „Prohlis“ to „Mockritzer Strasse“, switch to bus No. 63 direction „Löbtau“ to „Münzteichweg“, from there 2 minutes walk (Münzteichweg 22b) / opens from 9am to 7pm / price 3€ (2€ only 2 hours before closing time) and 2,30€ for the ride (single ticket) / 30 minutes ride


Pratschwitz, protected landscape, good for fishing, bathing and a vacation feeling!



huge gravel- pit in a protected landscape area with pedal boat rental, snack bars along the lake, huge lawn for sunbathing, naked bathing allowed as well, beach

get there via S- Bahn S 1 direction „Schöna“ to „ S- Bahnhof Süd Heidenau“ , from there 10 minutes walk to ferry in Heidenau next to Elbe river („F10 Birkwitz Fährstelle“), from the village „Birkwitz“ you follow the main road by walking to the village „Pratzschwitz“ (10 minutes walk) / always open/ FREE entrance / day pass for ferry and S- Bahn 8,50€- take a family ticket if you are 2 persons for 13€ / 1 hour ride and 10 minutes walk
