Dresden - the Florence on the Elbe river

Dresden in Germany is also called 'Florence on the Elbe' and one of the most beautiful cities in the country. The baroque metropolis experienced its golden age in the first half of the 18th century under the rule of Augustus the Strong.

Elbe valley Dresden Germany
Dresden Germany is situated in the valley of the Elbe river, which had been part of the World Heritage

Glorious buildings, countless art treasures and priceless wealth of the "Green Vault" treasure chamber - all testify to this era. During the second world war Dresden's historic centre was heavily bombed in five successive air raids and almost completely destroyed. Today we find many of its famous buildings rebuilt which are now home to some of Germany’s most well endowed museums and galleries.

The town is cultured and full of character. The Altstadt is ideal for explorations on foot - shopping, cafes, accommodation and the city’s major attractions are compressed into an area that’s conveniently walkable in Dresden Germany.
