Baroque magnificence on the Elbe

Today, the Elbe metropolis is a regular feature as one of the most visited German cities. In 2013, it was even the seventh most popular city in terms of overnight stays. Visitors simply can't get enough of the historic town centre, with its impressive baroque and renaissance facades, the famous museums and the splendid views of the banks of the Elbe.

In the evenings, the lively new part of Dresden, the trendy part of town in 19th century style, attracts visitors to its pubs, clubs and cinemas.
