How far Berlin Dresden Travel Blog JoyDellaVita

Dresden, a beautiful city and capital of the Free State of Saxony, in Germany. If you are anyway visiting Berlin, the capital city of Germany, you should definitely consider a day trip. Travelling within Germany is actually pretty simple, and also usually very affordable. Having a Car in Germany, and driving as fast as you want on the German autobahn can be joyful, but you don’t necessarily need a Car to get from A to B. To find out more I already published some articles about what to do in Dresden, including Restaurant recommendations.

How to get to Dresden from Berlin by Car

If you have a Car or rental Car, it’s quite easy to drive from Berlin to Dresden and back. On the German Autobahn, it is 192 km, one-way, which should usually take something about 2.5 hours. For a more scenic drive, I’d recommend taking country roads if your schedule is more flexible. Avoiding the motorway it will be a drive of 204 km which will take you about 4 hours, as you are not allowed to drive as fast as on the Autobahn. For the best Routes, and live updates on traffic I can recommend Google Maps (don’t forget to download the offline maps beforehand).
