July 3 
After breakfast we visit the castle and gardens of Pillnitz, the summer residence of the Saxon kings. 

 We then went to the dock and boarded a boat to go down the Elbe and celebrated Doron's birthday.

We then went on an excursion to the Saxon sandstone mountains, the romantic “Swiss Saxony” with its bizarre rocks, and visited the famous “Bastel” with a panorama sight from Koenigstein to Bohemia and an amazing sight down the valley where the Elbe has carved its way through the rock.  We had lunch overlooking this wonderful sight.  

We returned to Dresden to visit the Frauenkirche and for the Denver group to have the walking tour of Dresden.
