Travel Tips for Dresden

Winter Sunset in Dresden

by Ekaterinburg

As I mentioned in the tip above, Dresden was at the heart of the Romantic movement in Germany at the end of the 18th century. Painters, poets, composers, philosophers and intellectuals of all sorts flocked here and the city was a hotbed of artistic activity. So what does all this have to do with the title of this tip - Winter sunset in Dresden? The connection is maybe tenuous but this city had been growing and growing upon me all day long and by the time late afternoon and sunset arrived I had fallen completely in love with it. Walking back from the Neustadt I lingered for a long time on Augustusbrucke, admiring the river views and the dramatic swathes of yellow and black piling above the spires and towers of the Old Town. I appreciate that to many people Dresden is a city overrun with tourists but if you just cross a bridge and get away from the crowds it's easy to feel the attraction that Dresden had for all those poets and painters. Standing on that bridge I had a moment of complete happines.Such moments are what travel is all about to me but they don't happen often enough.

Thank you Dresden !

Walk Along the River - Sweet Lullaby

by nicolaitan

The Neustadt side of the Elbe River is lined by a largely unimproved meadow allowing great vistas of the Old City. It is bisected by an asphalt bicycle and strolling path with cafes, beer and wine gardens, and flower gardens along the developed side and unimproved grassland bisected by unpaved paths going down to the river edge and offered a peaceful stroll among family groups with children and dogs as well as those jogging and sitting along the benches. In summer, the meadow is a popular gathering place with movies and outdoor concerts. Near the mouth of a small tributary were assorted ducks and geese, nearer the August Bridge a hot air balloon, and beyond the bridge near the Japanese Palace the panorama made famous in the paintings of Canaletto (actually Bernardo Bellotto, a student ). Dresden is one of the greenest cities in Germany, and this central swath of nature was a welcome respite for a very leisurely stroll.

Memorial Place Münchner Platz

by german_eagle

This memorial place is located in the former court building, now a part of the University.

It is a memorial place for the victims of Nazism and Stalinism. You can see exhibitions and monuments. The history is explained on several boards.

Since 1907 the courtyard was the place for executions (guillotine). From 1936 to 1945, during fascism times, more than 1300 people (many of them from East Europe) executed here. After WWII the place was used by East German and Soviet secret services. Many innocent opponents of Stalinism were executed. In 1959 it became a memorial place.

Kutschfahrt - Horse Drawn Carriage

by pieter_jan_v

A romantic and relaxed way to explore Dresden is from a horse drawn carriage.

You will find these carriages during the summer time at the market squares of Dresden.

On average a tour of 30 minutes costs Euro 15.00.

The Zwinger

by stevemt

The Zwinger Palace in Dresden is a major German landmark.

The location was formerly part of the Dresden fortress of which the outer wall is conserved. The name derives from the German word Zwinger (outer ward of a concentric castle); it was for the cannons that were placed between the outer wall and the major wall. The Zwinger was not enclosed until the neoclassical building by Gottfried Semper called the Semper wing was built to host the Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister art gallery.

Also there is a collection of Meissen porcelain and clocks and scientific instruments. The building also holds the Mathematisch-Physikalischer Salon.
