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.

Getting around Dresden

Take your pick from trams, buses, ferries and cable cars! For those interested in hiring a bike look out for the Elberadweg cycle path which allows cyclists to enjoy a scenic ride alongside the Elbe.

Getting from the Airport to the City

Dresden Airport (DRS) is located just 5.6 miles (9km) north of the city and the journey to the city centre can take just 15 minutes. Taking a taxi or transfer service to your hotel can be a convenient option to save time and hassle waiting for public transport. Alternatively, head down to the basement of the airport terminal where you’ll find the S-Bahn system that operates services from the airport into town at regular intervals. Several well-known car rental firms also have desks at the airport.

Dresden International Airport is an attractive piece of industrial architecture, only 9km (6 miles) from the city centre. Once an aircraft hangar, the building’s interior is large and open, and is designed to be accessible and easy to navigate, with the different terminals and facilities all very close together.

Dresden International is a great place for children. The Departures Terminal has two play areas: one before and one after the security and check-in areas. If you’re bringing a baby carriage with you, you’ll be given another to use in the airport free of charge after you check yours in. Just ask at the oversized baggage counter.

Most travellers agree that Dresden International is well maintained, convenient and perfectly functional – just as airports should be.
