This tour starts and ends in Moritzburg at the station of the Lößnitzgrundbahn. After about 3km you leave the Moritzburg forest and get to the "Waldteichstraße". Follow the "Waldteichstraße" into the district Boxdorf. In some distance you will see the modern production facilities of the chip factory "Globalfoundries". Leave Boxdorf via the "Hauptstraße" and turn right into the "Lößnitzweg" 300m after leaving the village. After another 200m the "Lößnitzweg" turns to the right downhill. At the end of the downhill stretch you will reach the "Augustusweg", the beginning of the historical wine region. The path leads you past the hotel "Baumwiese", which was already built in 1680. Cross the S179 at the traffic light and follow, turning right, the "Augustusweg" into the city of Radebeul. The wooded hillsides are former vineyards. At the end of the 19th century, phylloxera brought wine growing here to an almost complete standstill. At "Eduard-Bilz-Platz" turn right into the street of the same name. After 200 m turn left into the "Weinbergstraße". This is the beginning of the vineyard "Goldene Wagen", which was newly raised at the beginning of the 20th century. Along the "Weinbergstraße" now follow a number of wineries with old, carefully restored winegrowers' houses and wine taverns. The "Weingut Hoflößnitz" offers the opportunity to learn about the cultivation and production of wine, the region and its history and is one of the highlights on this tour. The ensemble of vineyard, nature and historical buildings, make the charm of this landscape. Via the "Hoflößnitzstraße" you reach the "Lößnitzgrundstraße", into which you turn sharp left. Follow the signs for about 0.5 km until you reach "Obere Bergstraße". Here begins the vineyard "Radebeuler Steinrücken". From here on, vineyards and villa plots alternate. The signs will lead you to "Schloss Wackerbarth", the Saxon State Winery. Now follow the signs via the "Mittlere Bergstraße" to the vineyard "Radebeuler Johannisberg", to Coswig, to the "Weingut Matyas", the westernmost point of our tour. After visiting the winery, drive back about 400m and turn left into the "Talkenbergweg". The panorama compensates for the now following 1km ascent in the "Rietzschkegrund" to the vineyard heights. After about 1km turn right into the "Waldwiesenweg" and continue to the "Zechstein-Aussicht". Drive back the way a bit and turn right into the "Lößnitzhöhe". Via the "Auerweg" and the "Käuzchenweg" you reach the district Friedewald. Passing the "Wirtshaus Buchholz" and the tracks of the Lößnitzgrundbahn, the tour leads you to Dippelsdorf. Along the bicycle road at the Dippelsdorfer pond and through the small dome landscape you will get back to Moritzburg station via the Moritzburg district Eisenberg.
