Hotel Ross is located only a few minutes walking distance from Meissen’s famously beautiful old town. A rocky hill known fondly as the ‘Cradle of Saxony’ towers above the crooked, cobbled alleyways of the medieval town, crowned by the impressive trinity of bishop’s palace, cathedral towers and Germany’s oldest castle, the Albrechtsburg. This hilltop is where the history of today’s federal state of Saxony once began, and it offers fantastic views over the Elbe river valley with its 850 years of wine growing culture.
There are seven different paths up the hill, more or less steep, with or without steps - but no matter which way you choose, medieval architecture and breathtaking vistas await at every turn.
Meissen’s old town has remained intact in its medieval layout and street plan. Starting at the market square and the 550 year old town hall, you will stumble across monuments and sights wherever you turn, either exploring by yourself or on a guided tour.
One of the receptionists at Hotel Ross is also an experienced tour guide and would be happy to take you on an individual tour starting directly at the hotel - please talk to our reception team.
