Holidays to Dresden
For centuries, it was the magnificent residence of the Wettin royal family. Today, Dresden is one of the most beautiful Baroque cities in Europe – and a bustling metropolis at the same time. Because of its wealth of tradition and superb setting in the Elbe valley, the city was long ago dubbed “the German Florence”. It has since developed into a modern city, the attraction of which is based in equal measure on its many artistic and cultural treasures as well as on its progressive and broad-based scientific and industrial prowess.
Dresden is a beautiful city that is constantly changing and never ceases to offer its visitors some new aspect to discover. It is a city that is noted for tolerance, a cosmopolitan outlook and unique sense of style. The friendliness and helpfulness of the locals is due in no small measure to their natural joie de vivre and the quality of life they enjoy – something that they are happy and proud to share with their guests. With an almost unshakable certainty, Dresdeners talk about “our city”, because the idea is very dear to their hearts – and the hospitality and standard of service you receive here will surely endear it to you as well.
To quote the national poet Goethe, “an incredible treasure of all manner is to be found in this beautiful place”.
