With its unique combination of nature and culture, Dresden ranks among the most popular destinations of international level. Embedded in the picturesque Elbe landscape, the capital of the federal state of Saxony houses world-famous art treasures in its museums, attracts international guests with its outstanding orchestras, theatres and the Semperoper and delights with its numerous architectural monuments.
But Dresden is not only the city of Baroque and Renaissance. Especially in regard to architecture, in Dresden -more than in most other cities - the clear and fascinating traces and contrasts of history can be found - from the old residential city and the socialist county seat to the modern capital of the federal state of Saxony.
Furthermore, today Dresden is perfect for extended shopping tours as well as for amusing nights out in the young Dresden district Neustadt. Day trips to the surrounding region of Dresden like the Elbe Sandstone Mountains or a ride on a paddle steamer on the River Elbe make your visit to Dresden a memorable experience.
