Get your bearings
There’s no better way to experience the city’s many regal charms than by visiting its palaces. Start with the baroque-style Zwinger palace, which is now a museum housing The Sistine Madonna by Raphael. Don’t miss the Royal Cabinet of Mathematical and Physical Instruments, one of the oldest and most fascinating scientific collections in the world. From here, make your way to the Royal Palace, which comprises a castle, church and stable courtyard, as well as the Johanneum building, which is now a museum. While you’re there be sure to check out the Fürstenzug, an astounding 102m-long porcelain mural of the rulers of Saxony.
Architecturally, Dresden is fascinating. The city was heavily bombed during WWII, and today the skyline is replete with buildings of various architectural periods, from French baroque and renaissance to modern. Visit the Bundeswehr Military History Museum – where a glass and steel wedge rises out of the 1877 arsenal – to see an amalgamation of these styles.
While you’re there
Those wanting to experience Dresden’s nightlife should head to Neustadt, best known for its street art, vibrant bars and excellent restaurants. Stop by quirky boutiques, admire street art at every turn, then settle in for a drink at the popular cocktail bar El Cubanito.
