    Near the station

    by

    Most German cities now have an InterCityHotel, named after the InterCity trains which ironically are now being gradually phased out in favor of the more expensive InterCityExpress (ICE).

    Not all the InterCityHotels are as sterile as this new one in Dresden. What they all have in common is that they are near or even in the main railroad station, and they are not outrageously expensive, though I usually try to find something cheaper nearby when I am travelling at my own expense.

    This time it was my textbook publisher that booked me in here, and our agreement was that they would pay one night and I would pay the second, so I stayed two nights and ended up paying 108 Euros, which I guess is all right.

    Otherwise there isn't much to be said about a hotel like this. The room was quiet and comfortable, the breakfast buffet was well-stocked and tasty.

    The internet connection in the lobby would have cost something extra, so I didn't bother with it. Even a VirtualTourist member can go without the internet for a couple of days, right?

    Third photo: The price of the hotel room includes a pass on public transportation, which for me as a cyclist was not terribly important, but I did use the pass once to come home from the pub after the opera late at night on the tram. I was given a similar card recently at my hotel in Geneva, Switzerland.

not sure where you are staying or what you are doing in dresden but if you are planning on sticking to the major tourist sites and the central portion of the new city, dresden is the perfect town for walking as everything is so close together. must be the only city we have visited in europe in which we never got on a bus or tram or used a taxi. eminently walkable.

Travel Tips for Dresden

Balthaser Permoser's Sculptures at the Zwinger

by Ekaterinburg

Of all the Baroque splendour at the Zwinger, nothing delighted me more than the statuary. Every surface that could possibly be decorated was filled with wild flights of sculptural fancy. Walking along the top of the complex, there were countlessl terraces filled with nymphs, satyrs, and allegorical figures. The ones I liked best were not the dramatic, tortured looking creatures crawling up the sides of the pillars or those representing mythical or heroic values. What I loved were the rows of plump, endearing child-like figures with softly curling hair and sturdy thighs. My alltime favourite is the main photo that goes with this tip. These two, have the most eloquent backs and the sense of companionship and complicity their leaning into each other suggests, is absolute mastery of the medium

All of these are the work of Balthaser Permoser whose work is also featured in the Hofkirche and many other locations in Dresden.

Residenzschloss

by bugulma

The first palace was built in XII century here, then it was rebuilt in the of XVII century and since 1701 it became a residence of Saxon Duke. Many parts of the palace were destroyed in WWII and you may see reconstruction works. In any way, they promise to finish in 2006.

Behind the Semper Opera

by Nemorino

If you walk around to the back of the Semper Opera House, you will see that they have expanded the backstage area somewhat (you can tell that because the stones are a light brown color, unlike the original stones which have turned black from decades of air pollution and coal smoke), and they have added an attractive new administration building which is joined to the opera house by two glassed-in pedestrian bridges at the second floor level (two flights up).

And they have installed some highly impractical bicycle stands of the type known as "Felgenkiller" (rim killers), which however do not discourage staff members and musicians from cycling to work.

There must be some nightlife now

by Pavlik_NL

The last time I visited Dresden we didn't go out that much. Now-a-days many young people have left towards the West of Germany and Dresden fell in inhabitants from a million to 650.000 in the decade after the 'Wende' (fall of the Iron Curtain). In Dresden there are - of course - some discotheques, bars, café's and restaurants, but nightlife is not as booming as Berlin or what we could be used to in more western towns. Still, cosy evenings among friends are great as well.

Tapas Tapas / La Posada

by stipvisiten about Tapas Tapas / La Posada

There are two Spanish restaurants that share one courtyard at Königstraße 3: On the rigt side there is a tapas bar (Tapas Tapas), on the left side the restaurant 'La Posada'. Together they are simply the best Spanish restaurants in town. They serve big platters at the La Posada! Always outstanding: Fish (ask for the dayly offer!) The patron is fond of brandy - and you can share it: The La Posada is the restaurant with the largest brandy selection in town!
Tapas Tapas is the place to meet if you like the Spanish way of live. During the summer outside, but when the weather is typical German you find a cosy room inside, illuminated with candlelight only. The tapas are soooo good - and nothing compares to landlady Geli's charme... Fish (La Posada) and papatas bravas (Tapas Tapas)
