City overview

Complete with fascinating museums, treasured art and a stunning landscape, Dresden is a city that captures its visitors’ hearts on first sight. Boasting one of the largest rivers in Europe, the beautiful scenery of the Elbe brings visitors to the city from far and wide. Located in eastern Germany and bordering the Czech Republic, the capital city of Saxony has experienced a vibrant past that can still be seen today.

Those planning flights to Dresden in search of cultural and historical sites will be spoilt for choice. Head to the area on the left bank of the river Elbe, where you will find various historical buildings and monuments of significance. Take a visit to the Frauenkirche known as the Church of Our Lady, which features an impressive Baroque dome. Today the Frauenkirche is an iconic symbol of Dresden’s reconstruction since World War II – so much so that it has previously opened its doors to notables such as Barack Obama. The impressive Katholische Hofkirche (or the Dresden Cathedral), is also worth a visit for those interested in Dresden’s turbulent ecclesiastical history. Cross over to the right of the Elbe and find yourself in the Neustadt (New Town). Here visitors can spend some time exploring the shops inside the Neustadt Market Hall or take in the jaw-dropping interior of the most beautiful dairy shop according to the Guinness Book of World Records. Pick up a unique gift or a holiday memento from one of the charming artisan shops located on the Hauptstrasse (main street). With a huge selection of unusual and quirky creations to pore over, as well as opportunities for refreshments and relaxation, the artisan arcades are a favourite of visitors and locals alike.
