About the property

We invite you to spend your visit to Dresden in the neo-renaissance villa, built in 1893 for the grand opera singer Therese Malten (1853 – 1930), in classy ambiance. In the affectionately restored house there are 5 comfortably equipped rooms and 1 aprtment, all with spacious bathrooms, fireplace room and kitchen at your command. We will be happy to serve you a rich breakfast in the mornings of your holidays and organise an individual guided tour on demand, for enabling you to get to know Dresden from its best side. Or you let yourself float on a steamboat of the oldest paddle steamer fleet on the River Elbe. You can reach the town centre in half an hour via tram. You can spend the night of an eventful day on the balcony or in the big garden, where you can enjoy the views of the river Elbe and the Pillnitz castle. During the cold seasons you can let the day fade away in front of the fireplace.

About the history of the house: After Kleinzschachwitz had received steam-boat-stop in 1886, it became a sightly villa suburb, where retirees, salesmen, clerks and recreation seekers were living. As the example of Therese Malten shows, this also includes celebrities. Her property was built in the style of the german renaissance in 1893. Therese Malten lived here till her death in 1930. She handed down the house to her housekeeper, who could not keep it because of the estate duty. After 1945 the house was rent to several families by the municipal housing administration. Although the maintenance was let down, the precious arrangement details were kept thanks to the care of the lessees. In 1997 the villa was affetionately renovated by the art dealer Ladrón de Guevara. Since 2004 a family from Dresden has lived here. Now, after careful modification and renovation it offers comfortable housing for 12 people on the upper floor.

About Therese Malten: Therese Malten (1853 – 1930) made her debut in Dresden in the year 1873. Her success was so big she was engaged as Agathe in “Freischütz”. Soon she was consigned with parts of Richard Wagner, who was one of her admirers. The European opera houses made the assigned (1880) chamber singer Malten a lot of offers, but she stayed in Dresden. At the night of her retirement from the stage, her admirers are said to have drawn her carriage all the way from the opera to her house.

Arrival: By car: from the new autobahn A 17 it is only 7 km. Via suburban train and bus you can comfortably reach our house from the station (30 min) and the airport (1 hour). You reach the centre of Dresden after a 5 min walk and 28 min suburban train drive. By car it is about 20 min. The bicycle path along the river Elbe leads by the property. The old town of Dresden, Pirna, Saxon Switzerland and Meißen are easily reachable (good suburban train connection, if you only want to ride your bike one way). Lease of good bicycles (for 9 € per day). If you are not arriving by steam boat, you should not miss a trip on it. Scheduled trips on the river Elbe up to Bad Schandau in Saxon Switzerland and Seußlitz (behind Meißen). Parkin place and bicycle storage are free, garage cost: 5 € per day.

Jedes Jahr planen wir ein Familientreffen und benötigen dazu eine Unterkunft für 14 Personen und mehr.

Diese Villa hat alles und mehr. Einen riesigen Garten, eine Terasse zum relaxen mit Liegestühlen und Grillplatz.

Jeden Morgen wurde liebevoll ein Frühstück serviert ( das kann man mit buchen) und auf der Terasse genießen.

Die Zimmer sind im sehr liebevoll eingerichtet überall standen frische Blumen. Die gut ausgestattete Küche nutzten wir zum kochen, Karten spielen und gemütlich sitzen.

Gleich hinter dem Garten befindet sich die Elbe und die Fähre.

Am gegenüberliegenden Elbufer steht malerisch das Schloss Pillnitz .

Sehr schön für einen Ausflug ist das Schloss und der Schlossgarten.

Alles zusammen bekommt die Villa von uns die Höchstnote.

Der Empfang der Besitzer ist nett und unkompliziert. Man fühlt sich gleich wohl. Trotzdem ist man unabhängig und kann Dresden und Umgebung erkunden.

Wir haben unseren Familien-Osterurlaub mit 13 Personen in der Therese-Malten-Villa verbracht und können das Haus uneingeschränkt empfehlen. Die Villa ist liebevoll restauriert worden, alles ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet und die Ausstattung lässt keine Wünsche offen. Die Bäder sind sehr schön. Die Lage ist einmalig - besonders entspannt ist es, dass man kein Auto benötigt. Das gesamte Objekt war sehr sauber und gepflegt - alles war wunderschön mit Blumen dekoriert. Gefreut haben wir uns auch über die kleinen Osteraufmerksamkeiten... Der Garten ist einmalig. Jeden Tag wurden die Zimmer und die Gemeinschaftsküche gereinigt. Wir haben uns sehr, sehr wohl gefühlt und haben das Haus schon bei Freunden und Bekannten weiter empfohlen. Das Restaurant "Fährhaus" ist auch sehr empfehlenswert.

Dresden is known for its sights, its cultural offers and the attraction of the area. The Therese-Malten-Villa is located in Dresden-Kleinzschachwitz. From the house and the garden you have a wonderful view to the river Elbe and castle Pillnitz at the other side of the river Elbe. Via tram you can reach the town centre in half an hour. Likewise good access to the station and the airport. The bicycle path that proceeds next to the house, invites you to an excursion to Meißen, Pirna and into the Saxon Switzerland. Outdoor swimming pool, horse ranch and restaurants are in the near surrounding. However, you should also enjoy the silence and the sweet idleness in our garden.

Other Activities: directly at the cycling path of the River Elbe

Golf: Golf complex Dresden Ullersdorf 12 km, Golfcub Dresden-Elbflorenz e.V. in Bannewitz OT Possendorf 14 km.

Ski: The last winter also offered attractive possibilities for cross-country skiing. The distance to the Erzgebirge mountains is only 35 km, also good connection via train (attractive trip through the Müglitztal valley).
