Nov 20, 2007
Dresden is the capital of the German federal state of Saxony. It is located on the River Elbe. It is an industrial, governmental, and cultural centre and located in what once was called Valley of the Clueless. The city has rebuilt itself on a grand scale following the bombings of World War Two.

Dresden has about ten million tourists a year, most of them come from Germany. When here you should also enjoy the rare wines of the wine-growers from the surroundings, preferably in one of the romantic restaurants.

Nightlife has its roots in only one main area the district of Neustadt. It is a very popular destination, especially for younger people with its mass of bars, inspired taverns and cafes. The Brauhaus and Waldschlosschen is one of the oldest breweries in the country. Its dark beer and wheat beer are stuff of legends.

The largest inner-city shopping temple, is the Altmarktgalerie, which has also become a recent attraction. The Altmarkt Gallery shopping mall is one of the most attractive shopping centres of the city with over a 100 shops, cafes and restaurants on a sales area of 26,000 sq. metres and on four levels.

The Baroque district around Kanigstrasseis the city's unique, newly created shopping paradise with a claim to be something special, invites you with over 100 fine addresses for fine food and purchasing.

The Blue Wonder is called because of its distinctive turquoise colour. Blauer Wunder bridge links the districts of Loschwitz and Blasewitz. It was built from 3,500 tonnes of iron and 100,000 rivets, it is widely regarded as a master piece of 19th century engineering. The bridge opened in 1893 and it was Europe's first to be built with out pylons. Each side of the river with Kornerplatz on the right bank and Schillerplatz on the left bank is lined with restaurants and beer gardens.

The Royal Palace, was constructed in various stages between the 12th and 19th centuries. It was the former official royal residence of the Saxon royal family. Although it had suffered heavy structural damage during WWII, it has come a long way towards being returned to its original magnificence. The chapel of the palace is currently used by the Dresdner Staatschauspiel ensemble for a number of well supported events. While the fully restored building is now home to many precious and valuable attractions, such as the Crown Jewels, the Engraving Collection and also the city's Coin Museum. The church combines architectural features from the Baroque, Romantic, Renaissance and neo-Renaissance periods.
