I am a 74 year old female and will stay in Dresden June 2011 for 2 days, 2 nights, arriving by train. Suggestions for accommodation please, which part of the city?, hotels/hostels? I wish to do city tour and a river tour so which would be the best location. Cheers



Hello, Dresden is such a nice city. Maybe if you suggest a budget? There are plenty of hotels and the public transportation is excellent. That means that location is not the biggest issue in choosing your accommodation.
We stayed at the Prinz Eugen in Laubegast/Dresden which is in a lovely neighbourhood along the Elbe. An easy 30 minute ride with the tram to the center of Dresden. The Altstadt and the river boats are all very near to each other.

There are many deals to be had but for that you should visit a hotel booking site.
Maybe you could select a few hotels first on price and what you like? Location really shouldn't be a problem.

Like ATLC said, as public transportation is sufficient in Dresden, location is not *that* important. However, Hotel Prinz Eugen is quite a bit outside the old town and with only two nights you'll want to stay closer to the main attractions.

A good place to stay is this:

A bit cheaper:

But knowing a price range would make it easier to recommend a place.

I can warmly recommend Hilton, I stayed there a couple of times. Their concierge offers excellent support regarding city tours booking and selection, tickets etc, and they also had their own private tour of the "Frauenkirche" church, which is just opposite of the hotel. Very good location - walking distance to most attrations.

Thanks for the ideas folks, have had a look at all of them and like them all. They all cover my budget and location and info about public transport is great.



I was in Dresden last month but I haven't been able to build my Dresden page properly yet. Unfortunately my photos do not upload well on VT. But I do have quite a bit of recent information. Ingo (german_eagle) was a big help :-)

A general tip:
order some free brochures from the Dresden Tourist Office. It's so nice to leaf through brochures before you go! They ask a voluntary contribution to the shipping costs (which I disregarded since I went to spend money in their actual shop during our stay).

Use their form and write that you want info for Summer 2011!

Travel Tips for Dresden

have a look at all the...

by Bigs

have a look at all the historical sights. There is no better place in Germany to feel the change of times... The early centuries, World war 2, the GDR days and the latest years until will find a bit of everything in this wonderful city. I miss the red and green pedestrian traffic lights, the 'Ampelmännchen'! The eastern signs are different from the 'Wessie' ones.... I think the eastern ones are much nicer!

Kaethe Kollwitz-museum

by globetrott

Käthe Kollwitz - Gedenkstaette is another good reason to make an excursion to Moritzburg. Käthe Kollwitz (1867-1945) was a very famous paintress and professor on the art-academy in Berlin and she was finally forced by the Nazi-regime to leave the university.
In 1944 she was invited by Prince Heinrich von Sachsen to live in the so-called "Rüdenhof" , where she died in 1945.
The house where she lived and was working the last years of her life in Moritzburg may be visited :

Mostly For Those Who Speak German ...

by german_eagle about Theatres

There are numerous theatres in Dresden - from the Classical Theatre to smaller theatres and cabarets.

Here are some examples:
- Schauspielhaus (with some locations)
A highly acclaimed theatre company. I saw some excellent productions there - and this is also for folks that don't speak German but are interested in theatre. You might enjoy Goethe's or Schiller's works in original language as well as Shakespeare in German :-)
- Komödie Dresden
Contemporary comedies given by the local company mostly, but also guest companies on tour.
- Theater Junge Generation
Innovative modern theatre, young company especially for younger folks.
- Societaetstheater
The oldest civil theatre in Dresden. Often performances from guest companies, festivals.
- Kabarett Herkuleskeule
The political cabaret with the longest tradition in Dresden. A *must*! Often sold out long in advance.
- Kabarett Breschke & Schuch
Another political cabaret, not quite as good as Herkuleskeule but still enjoyable.
- Theaterkahn
One man shows, cabaret, recitals on the boat that docks next to Theaterplatz square. In combination with the restaurant it makes for a very nice evening. Except Schauspielhaus you don't need to dress up. And even there nobody will scold you for wearing jeans - it's just that others *do* dress up and I personally feel uncomfortable then. I would recommend to wear no sneakers, though.

Traditional Dresdner restaurant

by drei3t about Zum Goldenen Ring

This is a very traditional saxony restaurant in the heart of Dresden old town. The place is furnished with heavy wooden tables and chairs, and gives you a really cozy feeling.

The menu consists of German specialities, such as different sausages, schnitzels and of course schweinhaxes. I don't remember anymore what we ate, propably different kind of steaks, but the food was indeed delicious.

If I remember correctly, they served own made lager in the restaurant.

The prices were not the chepest you can find, but since the restaurant is so well located and has good reputation, you can expect a bit higher prices.

Activities by river Elbe

by drei3t

The river splits Dresden in two parts. In south you can find the old town of Dresden, and Zwinger, the main sight of the city. Also the main railway station is located in the south.

In north you can find a more bohemian part of the city. A lots of bars and people hanging out in the evenings.

By river Elbe you can sit to the bank north of the river, there is a big grass area. When the night gets dark, you can see the old town in night lights. It is truly beautiful.

During some city festivals they arrenge here concerts, and the bank of the river becomes the place for the younger citizens to socialise and have fun with some bottles of wine.

I also heard that flea markets are being arranged near river Elbe, but we did not have time to check it out.
