===By bus and tram===
There is a combined system of trams (''Straßenbahn''), buses and even trains, but no underground trains. It works very well and connects all points of interest, but can be a little busy at peak times. Most lines run at night but at reduced capacity. This allows you to go out to most places or restaurants without bringing a car, including to far flung places like [[Pillnitz]]. See [http://www.dvb.de/en/Homepage/ Dresdner Verkehrsbetriebe (DVB) website].

Best is to get yourself a Day Ticket (€6.00) or, for families, a Family Day Ticket (€8.50). It allows you to ride on all trams, buses, most ferries and trains (except InterCitys and ICEs). It is relatively cheap and valid until the next day at 04:00. You can also get a ticket limited to an hour and some others, but Day Tickets are recommended for flexible travel in and around the city.

As with most places in Germany, the public transit operates on the honour system: you are assumed to have a ticket, and there are a few inspectors out spot checking.  The exception is on the buses after 20:00, when the drivers are required to see all tickets.
