Explore the picturesque city of Dresden on this first-class vacation package. Staying in a premium hotel, you’ll tour the city’s hills and old city squares, learn about its history of destruction and rebirth, and get a taste for its famous art and night scene in trendy Neustadt.


This 3-day Germany vacation explores the lovely city of Dresden.

Located in the eastern state of Saxony, Dresden had long been considered one of Europe’s prettiest cities. Then came World War II and the city was completely destroyed by Allied bombing. But in the postwar years, the city was rebuilt brick by brick and has regained its title as one of Europe’s most picturesque spots.

Staying in a premium hotel near the Neustadt district, you’ll head on a half-day sightseeing tour to explore the many charms of Dresden. Begin with a steamboat ride down the Elbe River and enter the Old City, where you’ll cross the Blue Wonder, the city’s most beautiful bridge. Then ride the mountain railway to Ober Loschwitz, where you’ll enjoy stunning panoramic views of the city. Follow the quiet hiking trails down the mountain and spend the rest of the morning on the hop-on hop-off bus, seeing famous landmarks like the Frauenkirche, the Dresden Opera House, and Zwinger Palace. That evening, explore the city’s booming cultural scene with a nighttime exploration of the Neustadt, which has over 130 bars, pubs, and restaurants. Learn about the city’s history and its emerging art scene as you head from dancehall to backyard bar. At the end of your stay, head to the airport to continue your onward journey.

This trip to Dresden is a great addition to a longer German vacation.
