    Magnificent Architecture and Culture!

    Favorite thing: Dresden has many wonderful museums, some of the most well known are the Old Masters Picture Gallery in the Semper museum building adjoining the Zwinger and maybe the New Masters Picture Gallery in the Albertinum building on Brühl's Terrace. My favorite is the Book Museum Library or Buchmuseum der Sächsischen Landesbibliothek at Zellescher Weg 18 01054

    Also the architecture is Dresden is amazing considering so much bombing was done WWII, and so much had to be redone, very lovingly redone I must say by original plans. Most people will recognize the Dresden Zwinger, the Frauenkirche Church, Semper Opera House and Royal Palace, pics you will see on my pages here. These are in what´s called the "Old City". Its on the left of the Elbe River banks. Then you have the Neustadt Quarters on the right. And the Elbe Meadows will makes a pleasant walk, these are rather flat areas which because of geography were much overcome during flooding a few years ago, but much has been restored again.

    For more info about the city, map and links, directions, etc etc see here Dresden City Information. The site is both in German and English.

    Map of saxony

    by Antji Written Aug 26, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: This is a little map of the region SACHSEN (in english it is called Saxony!)
    The capital of this region is Dresden. You can find it in southeast of Germany. Next to Saxony are the neighbourstates Poland and Czech Republic. The name of the river is ELBE. The river is very beautiful and you can go by very old paddle-steamers (from the years around 1875) and there is a long beautiful way for bicycling and skating until the border of Czech Republic.
