Old Town of Dresden

Dresden consists of many incredibly beautiful, old architecture style buildings. Sure! Much history allows for much discovery - on one's own or by a guided city tour. The Baroque style Old Town will enchant you. Make a selfie. Learn from the tales of history. 

Sächsische Schweiz (Basteibrücke)

Pure nature! Experience the Elbe Sandstone Mountains of Saxon Switzerland. Experience great views on well-trodden trails - wandering footwear recommended!

Hip New Town

The hip New Town of Dresden - a trendy neighborhood pulsating with life. Just a few words: Culture, Bars, Graffities and Parties. In Hotspots like 'AssiEck' (chav's corner) people are crowding so much that traffic gets rerouted at night. Definitely have a look at the many art shops in "Kunsthof Passage" and get something to eat at the "Scheune" (The Barn) or the "Schokoladenhandwerk" (chocolate manufacturing).

Dresden Christmas Market

As a sweet treat for the finish: Dresdner Christstollen at the Striezelmarkt or some Halloren Kugeln - those are the reasons to be jolly at Dresden once more in winter (apart from dancing Kizomba again).
