Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: If travelling in August, try to time your visit with the Dresdner Stadtfest. We missed it by one day but could see all the preparations being made, setting up music stages, food stalls etc. Go for a walk around the old city sights at night time when all the buildings are lit up.

Liked: Historical sights all within easy reach of each other on foot. Rich history, comparison of pre and post communism very interesting. Quiet city not overrun by too many tourists.

Disliked: No
