Dresden Sightseeing Spots

The most beautiful places in Dresden you shouldn’t miss

The capital of Saxony has a lot to offer its visitors. Especially those interested in art and culture will get their money’s worth. It is not without reason that Dresden is known as Florence on the Elbe. From The Bilderberg Bellevue Hotel Dresden you can quickly reach the old town with its famous baroque buildings. In addition, many interesting museums and sights are in the immediate vicinity.

Old Town of Dresden

Dresden Old Town

Dresden’s Old Town is just a walk across the Augustus Bridge. It connects the historic centres of the New Town – where our Bilderberg Bellevue Hotel Dresden is located – and the Old Town. The path takes you past the Golden Horseman. This imposing equestrian statue of the Saxon elector Augustus II the Strong is entirely dressed in gold leaf.

As soon as you have crossed the Elbe, you will arrive in the old town of Dresden. Right opposite the catholic court church is the Semperoper Dresden. It is one of the most beautiful opera houses in the world and the most famous in Germany. Especially in the dark, the majestically illuminated building on Dresden’s Theaterplatz is a popular photo motif.

The Semper Opera House is the main venue of the Saxon State Orchestra Dresden. The operas, ballets and symphony concerts performed there inspire people all over the world.

Zwinger Dresden

Right next door is the next landmark: the Zwinger. The name, which seems strange today, comes from the medieval name for the part of the fortress between the castle walls. This architectural wonder was built in the 12th century. Today numerous events take place there. You will also find interesting museums in the Zwinger: for example the Old Masters Picture Gallery.

If you continue your way through the alleys of Dresden’s old town, you will pass the Dresden Residence Palace. There you will also find numerous art collections and exhibitions. In addition, there are many restaurants, bars and shops in the immediate vicinity, which invite you to take a leisurely break.

Visiting the Frauenkirche Dresden

Dresden Frauenkirche

Only a few steps further on you will already reach Neumarkt. There you will find another very famous sight of Dresden: the Frauenkirche. Since its reconstruction it is not only a symbol of reunification but also the heart of the old town. The beautiful, baroque architecture of the Frauenkirche and the viewing platform at a height of 67 metres attract countless people every day.

Dresdnen Striezelmarkt

Regional delicacies and wonderful arts and crafts are available every year during Advent at Dresden’s Striezelmarkt. It is one of the oldest Christmas markets in Germany. It received its name already in the 16th century. It is derived from a famous delicacy, which you can of course also taste at the Striezelmarkt. In addition, more than 200 traders offer their goods in a festive atmosphere.

Semperoper Dresden

Semper Opera Dresden

The history of the Semper Opera House is rich! The first building of the Semperoper was already completed in 1841. It takes its name from its master builder Gottfried Semper. It was considered one of the most beautiful theatres in Europe and became famous not least because of the digital clock above the stage. But a fire destroyed the building completely in 1869. A new building was opened in 1878.

Dresden Panometer

The Panometer Dresden is also one of the most popular sights of Dresden. Since 2006, the former gasholder has been displaying huge panorama pictures by the artist Yadegar Asisi. Currently the exhibitions “Dresden in the Baroque” and “Dresden 1945” alternate.

The cycle path along the river Elbe, which runs right through the centre of Dresden, is not only very attractive within the city because of the interesting sights of Dresden, but also unfolds its full beauty in the surrounding area of Dresden. Especially the section leading from Dresden towards the Czech Republic will inspire you with its unique natural scenery.
