Dresden is a city of contrasts. Old Town meets New Town, baroque meets mordernism, old art meets trendy, big city meets unique natural landscapes. Visiting Dresden offers something for everyone.
The capital city of Saxony proudly looks back on more than 800 years of changing fortunes and a tumultuous history, both still very dominant in today’s city scape. The historic baroque buildings of the Old Town are of world renown, bestowing the city of Dresden with an ensemble of buildings comprising the Frauenkirche, renovated and refurbished after its destruction during the Second World War, the catholic Hofkirche, the Residence Palace (Residenzschloss) as well as the buildings along the Brühlsche Terrasse that give the city its unique skyline, reflected on the waters of the river Elbe.
Dresden has more than 50 museums and 30 art galleries, and offers its visitors a rich and varied choice – the art gallery Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister in the Dresden Zwinger, which is situated in the heart of the Old Town, and the collections of the Grünes Gewölbe in the neighbouring Residenzschloss, both unique collections of global importance.
Leaving the city centre behind there is still so much to discover – the pictcuresque banks of the river Elbe invite the visitor to sit, reflect and relax.
