Holidays in Dresden

Often, it's the people living in a city that make it tick. In this part of Saxony, there's 490,000 of them.

If you are planning a holiday for the entire family, outings to Nordbad Dresden and Geibeltbad Pirna are guaranteed to put smiles on everyone's faces! Are the kids still bouncing off the walls? Don't think you are done yet! Keep up the fun with a trip to the Dresden Funicular Railway and theater in der Fabrik.

Take the kids to the Dresden Zoo or the Wildgehege Moritzburg and watch their faces light up! They'll be able to get close to some intriguing animals and learn about the importance of caring for our wildlife while they're at it.

If you think man and beer were made for each other, you should drop into the Radeberger Brewery. The brewers' commitment to this delicious, golden drop is captured in every glass.

Keen on escaping somewhere quiet and sampling a glass of fruity white? Then don’t miss a day out at the Castle Wackerbarth and Hofloessnitz Vineyard Museum.

Wandering around the manicured garden beds and floral exhibits at the Dresden Botanical Garden feels like drifting through a vibrant paradise.

There's no need to wander deep into the forest to take in a bit of greenery. The Grosser Garten and the Rose Garden are just two of the appealing recreational areas you'll find amid this concrete jungle. Luckner Park and the Grosssedlitz Baroque Garden are two more spots where you can experience a little greenery.

Start your day in one of the most peaceful ways by gazing at the sun's rays twinkling on the still water at Loessnitzbad.

Captivating exhibits await you at the Karl May Museum and the Porcelain Collection. They're calm places to take a break or escape a bad-weather day. If you've got the time, also check out the Meissen Porcelain Museum and the Dresden Armory.

The intriguing scientific objects and exhibits at the Dresden Museum of Technology and Industry and Adolph Diesterweg Observatory are bound to put your brain into gear. For even more from the wonderful world of science, you should also visit the Royal Cabinet of Mathematical and Physical Instruments. Be sure to ask around about any travelling exhibitions that might be on.

Our big blue planet is the home of a tremendous variety of organisms. Take a look at some of the earth's more peculiar life forms with a trip to the Landesmuseum für Vorgeschichte.

In a city filled with terrific art exhibitions, the Albertinum and the Old Masters Picture Gallery manage to stand out from the rest. You should also look into what exhibitions are being held at the Dresden State Art Collections and the Leonhardi-Museum.

Find out about the influence that Dresden's past people and events had on the nation, and sometimes the world, at the Green Vault and the DDR Museum. The Bundeswehr Military History Museum and the City Museum Meissen are also worth dropping by for an even deeper insight into days gone by.

Dresden is home to many intriguing historic sites. Why not begin digging into the city's past at the Japanese Palace and the Dresden Panometer? The Bruehl's Terrace and Saxon State Chamber are also worth checking out.

Blue Wonder Bridge and Augustus Bridge may not play quite as crucial a role in joining the city as they did in the olden days, but they're still well-known tourist experiences.

Zwinger Palace and Heidenschanze have looked after a number of Dresden's most renowned people throughout the years. Of course, they aren't the only shiny abodes that lie in Dresden. Lingner Palace and Dresden Royal Palace are also worth a visit.

For a magical escape, walk over and marvel at the spellbinding frontage of Dresden Castle and Moritzburg Castle. Pillnitz Castle and Park and Albrechtsburg Castle also look like they belong inside the pages of a fairytale book. If you're lucky, there might be a guided tour happening.

Intrigued by religion? Get a better understanding of the region's relationship with spirituality at Church of Our Lady and Epiphany Church. Dresden Cathedral and Church of the Holy Cross are also on the itinerary of plenty of spiritually curious travellers.

When you're on the road, it's sometimes the more ordinary sites that you'll remember once you're home. A couple of places which fit that bill here are the Saxon State Library and the Procession of Princes. Or, visit, the Meissen Porcelain Factory and the Kunsthof-Passage.

Hotels in Dresden

Are you ready to get under the covers (and perhaps get acquainted with the mini bar) at your Dresden hotel? No dramas. There are more than 104 places to crash on lastminute.com.au.

If you're hunting for a cosy room without all the fancy extras, the Cityherberge Dresden, located at Lingnerallee 3, is your safest bet.
