Dresden: Attractions and more...
The Dresden Palace, a royal residence in the past, is a unique blend of various styles of European architecture. The Zwinger Palace holds many museums dedicated to art, sculpture and weaponry. One of its most famous features is the sculpted fountain, the Bath of the Nymphs.
The Hofkirche, a Protestant church, was built exclusively for the royal family, while Frauenkirche, a Roman Catholic church, was built by the citizens and is one of the finest examples of the cupola style in Europe.
Grosser Garten is the most beautiful park area amongst the many in Dresden. It houses a zoo and a botanical garden. In the centre of the garden stands the Lustschloss, a small palace-like building which is used to host concerts in the summer.
A cruise on the river Elbe is ideal as it not only gives a great view of the city’s monuments but also goes through the picturesque valley surrounding the city.
