The German President has called on his countrymen to stand up to extremism and nationalism and warned that hatred and the desire for authoritarianism are on the rise throughout Europe, including in their own country. Dresden is one of Germany's most popular tourist destinations, and the city is gearing up for far-right protests on Saturday. It is the site of an anti-Islam movement that began in Dresden in 2014 and eventually brought thousands of supporters onto the streets of the East German city.
Some of the historical and well-known landmarks have been rebuilt since the destruction of Dresden during the Second World War. The people of Dresden and the city have rebuilt their city, and more and more people are discovering the things that attracted people to Dresden before the war and are still there, such as the old town hall, the Dresden Museum and the Dresden Castle.
The good news is that Dresden cafes and restaurants are affordable, so no one will forget to try traditional German cuisine and local beer. The trains run to Dresden-Neustadt station, which is also a hub between regional and interregional railways. By train to Dresden Neustads station and for only five euros to the Bastei Bridge in Dresden and the cable car.
Dresden also has extensive train and bus connections to the surrounding area and is connected by a number of regional and interregional railways as well as the Dresden - Neustadt railway line.
You will find that Dresden is one of the most unique cities in Germany, offering a wide range of cultural activities, as well as a rich history and culture. Dresden can be reached by train or bus from a number of regional and supraregional trains, making many of Germany's most popular destinations such as Munich, Berlin, Cologne, Hamburg, Düsseldorf and Dresden easily accessible. Munich also houses the world's largest museum, the Museum für Moderne Kunst (MFA) and the Dresden Museum.
Most of Dresden's sights are located in the Old Town, just a 15-minute walk from the youth hostel and within walking distance of many of Germany's most popular tourist attractions.
The Zwinger, like most buildings in Dresden, is freely accessible and offers many beautiful buildings in which you can get lost. The Bundeswehr Military History Museum is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the Old Town. Once the home of the rulers of Dresden, it now houses many different museums and exhibitions where you can learn more about Germany and its history. On the museum website you will find all the information you might need, as well as a list of all exhibits.
It was originally built between 1726 and 43 and designed by George Bahr, but was heavily bombed during World War II and destroyed by Allied bombing in 1945. The Frauenkirche, or "Our Lady of Dresden," was rebuilt in 1992-2005 and became a symbol of reconciliation and peace for the people of Dresden after the last world war. Although the scars of World War II are still felt in Germany today, there is one that is nowhere else to be found. With its twinning with the cathedral, which fell victim to the flames, the church has become a symbol of peace and reconciliation.
The Elbe, east of Dresden, is an area of vineyards and castles and is therefore one of the most popular tourist destinations in Germany. As in so many cities, part of my joy in Dresden was simply wandering around. The El Be divides Dresden into two parts, the north and south banks and the city itself. Those who just stroll around are blessed with the Bruhl Terrace, which runs along the southern shore of El be, as well as a number of small streets.
Dresden Neustadt is the closest hostel to El Be and is one of the most popular hostels in Germany and a popular destination for tourists.
Book a direct flight to Berlin or a train connection to Dresden, but Lufthansa only offers 200 PS200 for a return flight. Berlin's main train station is accessible by bus, train or bus from and to El Be from the city centre.
I love Germany and Dresden is one of my favourite places to learn about its rich history and eat delicious food. If you are looking for a rich heritage and a world-class treasure to experience on vacation, Germany is the destination for you. Be on a trip to Germany to highlight some of the amazing places and why it is such an amazing place to travel there. El Be is a trip in itself, with the Bastei Bridge (don't be fooled, it's still in Germany) worth a visit in East Germany.
Watch a ballet or opera, visit one of the most famous opera houses in the world, the Dresden Opera House, and find yourself in the heart of a city full of history, culture, art, music and culture.
