How to get here
The buildings of the Saxon State Parliament are located directly on the banks of the Elbe river at the edge of the historic centre of Dresden's old city between the Marienbruecke and Augustusbruecke bridges. The Semper Opera House and Zwinger Palace border the grounds of the State Parliament to the east, while the Maritim Hotel und ICC Congress centre border the grounds to the west.
Visitors to plenary sessions and the citizens' foyers should use the public entrance to the new building directly on the banks of the Elbe river. Visitors of the parliamentary parties and the administration of the state parliament should use the entrance to the old building.
There are bicycle racks at both entrances. The buildings and grounds of the State Parliament are wheelchair accessible.
