The Sophienkeller – a great atmosphere

We had a great day, incorporating a couple of tours: Schloss Pillnitz (along the way I saw Keppschloss, owned by my great-grandfather’s uncle, Robert Thode), the Zwinger, the Procession of the Princes. We bought a map of Poland for the next leg of our tour, and had an evening meal in the Sophienkeller. It’s lovely in there. It’s under the ground, slightly under the former Sophienkirche, destroyed in 1945, and the atmosphere was great. It was a combination of a candle-lit Henry the Eighth feast (or perhaps Augustus the Strong feast?), with a sandstone, dome-shaped roof, resembling the Cavern in Liverpool where the Beatles first played. I had two Weizenbiers here, and later at the Muenzgasse, I had a schwarzes Bier (black beer). Alles Gute!
