Dresden is always worth a visit...

The city of Dresden…

offers a wide variety of attractions. Numerous historic monuments and complexes characterise the unmistakable cityscape.

Idyllically located on the banks of the Elbe, the regional capital of Saxony is one of Germany’s most beautiful cities.

The baroque metropolis – also known as the Florence of the Elbe – experienced its heyday under Augustus the Strong during the first half of the 18th century. Magnificent buildings, countless artistic treasures and priceless wealth in the treasure chamber of the Grünes Gewölbe (Green Vault) continue to testify to this past era.

Dresden’s historic centre was almost completely destroyed during the Second World War, and today appears in new old splendour.

It’s your choice…

whether it be the symbol of Dresden – the reconstructed Frauenkirche -, the Dresdner Zwinger palace, the Old Masters art gallery and armoury, Dresden Castle with the Historic and New Green Vault, the Fürstenzug (Procession of Princes mural), Brühl’s Terrace and casemates,

funicular railway; monorail, the Blue Wonder bridge, the Great Garden with its zoo and park railway, as well as the Hygiene Museum, Transport Museum, Japanese Palace, the monumental 360° panorama exhibitions in the Dresden-Reick Panometer… and much more – the Aparthotel Villa Freisleben is the ideal starting point for your city explorations and daytrips.
