Dresden, Germany's "City of Culture", is characterised by exceptional architectural masterpieces, numerous cultural highlights, and by its magical winter wonderland - the Christmas market.
Dresden, often referred to as a "Jewel Box", might be a small town but should not be underestimated. As a past royal town, Dresden holds architectural and historic treasures. Dresden charms with ornate and glorious baroque buildings including breathtaking churches like the Frauenkirche. The town is rich in art and cultural history, which is also reflected in its galleries and museums.
Nature enthusiasts can enjoy the lush, green parks and gardens or let the town’s atmosphere work its magic while relaxing at the banks of the lovely river Elbe. Dresden’s Saxon cuisine also offers plenty of culinary delights. One of the highlights at the annual Christmas market is the original "Dresdner Weihnachtsstollen".
