In the beginning, it was 80,000 square metres of park and forestry land. That was until physician Dr Eugen Weidner discovered it and had it turned into his very own health spa. His idea was to create a place of well-being and the Weidner Sanatorium stands as an inimitable testimony to this vision.
23 new build private apartments
Baywobau Dresden has transformed the ensemble into an exceptional residential development. The first residents are already enjoying life up on the beautiful hillside with its spectacular views. With the construction of the 'WEIDNERS STADTVILLEN' project, Königspark will be complete. The two villas bear the first names of the founder of the health clinic and his wife, Eugen and Eugenie, in return for the beautiful location they left behind.

Picture-perfect: the villa district of Oberloschwitz
A height of more than 100 metres over the valley and the location along the banks of the River Elbe make Oberloschwitz a very special place indeed – an exclusive residential area with character and its very own flair.
In the former wine-growing areas along the banks of the River Elbe, numerous villas and small castles were built primarily in the 19th and 20th centuries. They were used either all-year round or strictly as a summer residence.
In the 18th century, many artists as well as Dresden’s prominent figures settled in Oberloschwitz. Friedrich Schiller once lived there in the Körner family residence while working on his play 'Don Carlos'.
The funicular railway and suspension railway are among its historic highlights. To this day, they continue to transport passengers up hill to the districts of Weißer Hirsch and Oberloschwitz. Outstanding views can be enjoyed during the ride. From the top station of the suspension railway on the Sierksstraße road, it is just a fifteen minute walk to 'Weidners Stadtvillen'. The suspension railway began operation in 1809 and is the oldest and only surviving suspension railway of its kind in the world.
