The card would be perfect if you could print it yourself. This is how we have a voucher that is redeemed for DCC in the center! cities. So you have to get there anyway. So we either leave the car in a paid parking lot in the city (5Euro / day) or in the P + R car park and buy a public transport ticket to get to the center (2.7Euro / h / person). But when you have this card, it rocks: D

City Card is a recommendation because you can get through the entire city without stress. Just get on no matter what, bus or train and off you go. Plus more perks.

Dresden is very well equipped with public transport connections. You can go anywhere. Depending on where you live, you don't need 3 days.

It is better to buy a day ticket for the tram and/or bus. Same options and much cheaper (€6.90).
