Prague to Dresden or Dresden to Berlin by car

I'm aware that these cities are readily available by train but is there an advantage to get a driver to go from Prague to Dresden or Dresden to Berlin. By advantage I mean interesting scenery or stops along the way which would make the additional cost worthwhile and fun. Does anyone know of such a service other than a taxi.

The scenery is the same or even better with the train. Dresden-Berlin is not scenic/interesting. And between Prague and Dresden the trains stop in Decin and Bad Schandau - the National Park Saxon-Bohemian Switzerland. From the latter is a frequent commuter train service to Dresden (every half hour). These trains stop in the picturesque small towns of Rathen, Wehlen, Pirna e.g.

Not that I know of a driver service - but it would be expensive and a waste IMO.

I agree with Ingo's suggestion - well worth a stop and a day of hiking in the area - both the Czech and German sides of the border are worth seeing. I have some photos of the area:

The following website is useful for practical information about the area:
