A morning dose of vitamin C for Culture, courtesy of the Green Vault. After lunch, a pleasant stroll in the city’s Grosser Garten park. And after sunset? The opera beckons. Why not round it all off with a cocktail in the ‘alternative quarter’ of Neustadt – or whatever else you fancy. Dresden is vibrant, majestic and elegant, but low-key with it too. Virtually unending attractions and activities await: The Old Masters Gallery, the Blue Wonder Bridge and the Elbe river; the Church of Our Lady (Frauenkirche) and the Procession of the Princes; the Semper Opera and the Zwinger; art galore from every era– and a fantastic gastronomic scene. Take our word for it – great times are a given in Dresden.
