Bad Schandau is a spa town in Saxony, Germany.

Get in[edit]

Bad Schandau is served by the Elbe valley rail line connecting Dresden and Prague and therefore the two hourly Eurocity train stops there. The main Bad Schandau railway station is some distance from the historic town centre and on the opposite side of the Elbe, and is linked to it by a half-hourly ferry or less-frequent and less direct bus services. Krippen railway station is almost opposite the historic town centre and is also linked to it by a ferry, but has a less frequent rail service.
