The pomp and splendour of Dresden

Bombastic baroque in Dresden’s picturesque old town and colourful urban art in the grungy and alternative new city. Dresden is a city with two sides. Book a flight to Dresden and discover the history of this elegant German city. Due to the city’s sheer abundance of art, architecture and culture, Dresden is also known as ‘Florence on the Elbe’. It will take you some time to see everything.

Reconstruction of the baroque city

Dresden is known for being one of the world’s most beautiful, baroque cities. Many buildings in Dresden were destroyed during WW2, so the city began rebuilding its cultural heritage after the war. For this reason, Dresden’s well-known baroque cathedral and the Zwinger complex, the city’s showpiece, were restored to all their former glory. Why not take an early stroll around this baroque complex and experience its beauty. You can round off the day with a cruise along the Elbe in a classic steamer. Dresden is not only the ideal destination for weekend holidays, it’s also the perfect starting point for a longer vacation in Germany. Treat yourself: book a flight to Dresden now!

The Saxon Switzerland Mountains offer a picturesque landscape where you can spot deer, wild boar and maybe even a fairy.
