A packed schedule in the Florence of the North
48 museums, 60 galleries and exhibition venues as well as 36 theatres and stages promise a packed schedule all year round in Dresden, the so-called "Florence of the North". The Striezelmarkt is one of the most enchanting Christmas markets in Germany and definitely a must-visit
in December. The green city of Dresden also offers lots of open spaces to relax and recreate. Those looking for even more nature should take the Elbe Cycle Path, the most popular long-distance cycle path in Germany.
