A thoroughly modern city
Situated on the banks of the river Elbe, Dresden is a city of dreaming towers, domes and spires. Historically known as ‘the Jewel Box’ of Saxony thanks to its extravagant style, the modern city boasts a wide variety of architectural masterpieces. Don’t miss the spectacular Baroque Frauenkirke or the Zwinger. Multicultural and vibrant, Dresden is an energetic metropolis with plenty to see – from Old Master paintings at Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister to the imposing Dresden Castle.
