Meissen Hotels

For a town with a population of under 30,000 Meissen is quite a sprawling place, with no less than three regional S-Bahn train stations.

Hotel - and other accommodation - tends to be clustered either in the 'old town' at the base of the castle hill (which is good for proximity to the main sights) or on the other bank of the Elbe (which is good for the famous views across the river).

The hotels chosen include those from the four and three star categories and some of them have online booking facilities through our travel fulfilment partner You can check availability at those particular hotels by clicking on the button under the hotel.
