Visiting Dresden – A City Guide
Dresden’s famous opera house, baroque landmarks, galleries and city parks attract both culture lovers and families. Many of the city’s grand buildings were restored to their former glory after Second World War bombing. Wide squares and the meadows beside the Elbe river give the city a spacious and green feel.

 

Dresden: city layout
Dresden’s historic centre encompasses the Altstadt (Old Town) in the south and northern Neustadt (New Town), divided by the River Elbe. Altstadt’s squares include Neumarkt with its reconstructed baroque buildings, 14th-century Altmarkt and spacious Theaterplatz, home to the iconic Semperoper opera house.

On the river’s right bank you’ll find museums and boutiques in the baroque Innere Neustadt. The Golden Horseman statue and central Albertplatz are joined by plane tree-lined, pedestrianised Hauptstraße.

North of the former city walls, urban Äußere Neustadt is the haunt of artists and students, with many trendy bars and nightclubs.

Quieter suburbs include Albertstadt and Friedrichstadt. To the northeast, Dresden Heath forest has pretty walks close to the heart of the city.

 

Top attractions in Dresden
It’s impossible to wander through Dresden’s Innere Altstadt without stumbling upon a baroque palace or a grand square. You can gaze out over the Altmarkt from the tower of huge Kreuzkirche church. From here it’s a six-minute walk to Neumarkt square and the Frauenkirche , a majestic baroque church reconstructed after the war. Art lovers can admire the architecture and sculptures of Dresden Zwinger palace from the outside, or works by Rembrandt and Raphael among the masterpieces in its Old Masters Picture Gallery.

 

The concierge recommends…

  • A visit to world-renowned opera house Semperoper, reconstructed in Early-Renaissance style. The building offers music to the eyes as well as to the ears, with opulent furnishings including crystal chandeliers and the original, restored curtain.
  • A glass of heart-warming Glühwein (mulled wine) at the Striezelmarkt Christmas market. Romantically set on 14th-century Altmarkt, its sparkling stalls sell traditional festive decorations, pottery and gingerbread.
  • Enjoying the sweeping view of the city from the rooftop restaurant at the Yenidze “tobacco mosque”. The former cigarette factory in Friedrichstadt, west of the old town, is shaped like a mosque, with a glazed dome that has an open-air viewing deck in summer.
  • Rest your feet and sip a coffee under the plane trees on Hauptstraße, the spacious pedestrian zone in Innere Neustadt.

 

Hotels in Dresden
Dresden offers hotels for all budgets and needs, both in the city centre and in the leafier suburbs. Thanks to an excellent network of trams and buses, you can quickly reach the main attractions from the quieter neighbourhoods outside the centre.

In the Altstadt, major landmarks like Dresden Zwinger and Dresden Royal Palace are all within walking distance. So is the Elbe river, a perfect starting point for an outing by bike or boat. The Internationales Congress Center Dresden and the Semperoper are also found here.

Staying in Äußere Neustadt, a short tram ride from the old town, puts you right in the middle of Dresden’s vibrant art scene and you can drink and dance at buzzing student bars and clubs.

Residential Südvorstadt, south of Dresden Main Station, has wide, tree-lined streets and parks and is a good choice If you prefer a quieter neighbourhood.

 

Eating Out in Dresden
Dresden’s own cuisine is characterised by Saxon home cooking, sweet, spicy pastries and local white wines. The wider gastronomical landscape is colourful and diverse, ranging from down-to-earth beer gardens to sushi bars and top-class international restaurants.

Around Altmarkt and Neumarkt you can enjoy a Saxon pot roast with a view of Frauenkirche or have a drink on Brühl’s Terrace and watch the boats drifting by on the Elbe. Italian, Indian and Spanish restaurants are clustered around Weiße Gasse, opposite Kreuzkirche.

For a touch of luxury, visit Innere Neustadt. Hidden in picturesque baroque courtyards between its galleries and antique shops, elegant restaurants offer Saxon cuisine, sushi and tapas.

Much-loved by students, musicians and artists, the hip restaurants and cosy cafés of Äußere Neustadt serve everything from rare steaks to organic vegan delicacies.

 

The chef recommends…

  • Sächsischer Sauerbraten: A regional variation of a German classic, this hearty pot roast consists of meat (usually beef) marinated in vinegar or wine and served with sticky potato dumplings.
  • Dresdner Christstollen and Pulsnitzer Pfefferkuchen: The former is a traditional Christmas pastry with dried fruit, almonds and powdered sugar, while the latter – a gingerbread made of honey, almonds and fragrant cardamom or cinnamon – is sold and savoured all year round.
  • Wine from the Elbe valley: Saxony’s sweet and dry white wines, including Pinot blanc, Müller-Thurgau and Riesling, have an excellent reputation.

 

Shopping in Dresden
Whether you’re looking for artisan craftwork, luxury goods, fashion or antiques, you’re sure to find the right shop in Dresden, so why not combine your sightseeing tour with a shopping spree?

The spherical Kugelhaus opposite Dresden Main Station and the grand Altmarkt-Galerie shopping centre are connected by Prager Straße. Here you can find major brands as well as small shops selling clothes, shoes and books. From Altmarkt-Galerie it’s a 10-minute walk to Neumarkt, where designer clothes and jewellery beckon from stylish boutiques.

On the right bank of the Elbe, you can hunt for antiques in the upscale Baroque Quarter Innere Neustadt between Königstraße and Hauptstraße. Make sure you visit the spectacular Neustadt

Market Hall, a huge indoor market with elaborate iron staircases and railings, for local produce, spices and gifts.

North of Albertplatz, Äußere Neustadt is an artistic neighbourhood where you can discover craftwork and original gifts in the courtyards and alleys of Kunsthofpassage.

 

Must buy in Dresden

  • Cheese and Saxon wine at Pfunds Molkerei on Bautzner Straße. This staggering 19th-century dairy is completely lined with hand-painted glazed tiles, richly decorated with arabesques and angels.
  • Handcrafted Meissen porcelain has been produced in the company’s factory outside Dresden since the 18th century. It’s available in their own shops, three of which are in Altstadt.
  • Many souvenir shops cater to the sense of Ostalgie (nostalgia for East German life), selling everything from model Trabant cars to everyday items from the former East Germany.

 

Culture & Nightlife in Dresden
Dresden’s abundance of museums and art galleries ranges from classic to contemporary and unusually-themed. Every September, you can visit as many museums as you like with one ticket during Museumsnacht Dresden – or “Museum Night”.

Altstadt’s German Hygiene Museum has fascinating exhibits dedicated to medicine, society and science. The glass cases in opulent royal treasure chamber Grünes Gewölbe display gold jewellery and elaborate decorative arts.

Contemporary galleries specialising in 20th- and 21st-century Saxon art are clustered in the “Kunstquartier Barockviertel” in Innere Neustadt. Bundeswehr Museum of Military History in northern Äußere Neustadt displays some 10,000 exhibits from uniforms to military vehicles.

Nightlife thrives in Neustadt and around Albertplatz, where bars and clubs play music from electro to punk. In the summer, you can enjoy a drink at one of the beach clubs near Leipziger Straße on the right bank of the Elbe.

 

Classical music in Dresden

  • Semperoper: The world-famous opera house and its Saxon State Orchestra are major contributors to Dresden’s reputation as a city of music.
  • Dresden Philharmonic Orchestra: Founded in 1870, the prestigious ensemble plays around 80 concerts in the city every year.
  • State Operetta House: Exclusively dedicated to musical theatre, the Staatsoperette’s repertoire includes classical operettas, musicals and Spielopern (opera plays).
  • DresdnerKreuzchor: The internationally renowned boys’ choir, based in Kreuzkirche on Altmarkt, celebrates its 800th anniversary in 2016.

 

Visiting Dresden with a Family
Dresden has all the right ingredients for family walks, cycling tours and outdoor activities, with extensive parks and gardens, the winding Elbe river and Dresden Heath forest right on the doorstep. Family-friendly museums and playgrounds offer ideal alternatives for inquisitive little minds on rainy days.

Take a half-hour ride on the Park Railway or relax with a picnic on the grassy lawns of the huge Grosser Garten, home to Dresden’s Zoo and Botanical Garden.

Take your pick from canoes, motor boats or steamboats, depending on your energy level, to explore the River Elbe by boat. A cycle tour along the Elbe Cycle Route passes picturesque castles, villages and vineyards.


On a rainy day, you can shelter in one of the popular Kindercafés, child-friendly cafés with indoor play areas. Children can also burn off some energy at indoor playgrounds such as Kuddeldaddeldu in Elbepark shopping centre.

 

Best family attractions in Dresden

  • Verkehrsmuseum Dresden: Kids love the simulators that let them fly a plane or navigate a container ship into port at this family-friendly transport museum.
  • Zoo Dresden is home to elephants, lions, koalas and a petting zoo. Its playgrounds have swings, climbing frames and a “scouting tree” with peepholes from which kids can watch the zebras and giraffes.
  • Take a discovery tour through the senses using games and puzzles at the hands-on Children’s Museum within the German Hygiene Museum. It’s available in English too.
    Kids can romp about, stroke rabbits or make handicrafts with leather, wool and clay at the Adventure Playground Panama in Äußere Neustadt.

Very clean and comfortable
By a Laura
Stopped in for a night and had a very peasent stay. COurteous staff, clean rooms, good breakfast and hard comfortable beds with lots of fluffy, wonderful pillows. Short stay but nice. Close to public [More] transportation but not convinient for walking to downtown. [Less]
Comfortable room, but public transit is inconvenient
By gnutello
The hotel overall is clean and comfortable, but the dining service was a bit slow. Around 10:00 PM, I was the only person in the restaurant area, but it took the service staff about 10 minutes to [More] take my order and 40 minutes to serve my food. The internet was reasonably fast and reliable. The bed was very comfortable. Overall, I'd recommend visiting here if you have a car. Due to some construction in the area, the nearest bus stop was unreliable and late at night it was difficult to find public transit that would stop within a kilometer of the hotel. [Less]
Quiet and comfortable
By Beatmaster
Unexpected we received a update for the executive room. Within there was more space than necessary and a quiet located room with a terrace to the backyard. The terrace was not usable due to the [More] additional build-up emergency stairs. Breakfast buffet was large and many-sided. All in all a good deal if the location in Dresden-Plauen close to the university is prefered. [Less]
Please Dresden Visit
By ppsreform
We visited Dresden for two days in early January staying at this pleasant hotel, located in the city centre. The location was excellent with tram, bus and tourist bus at the door, good variety of [More] restaurants nearby. The large downtown shopping area was also nearby. Visiting the main tourist attractions was easy from this hotel. Going to and from the main railway station was also easy using the city tram. The staff were excellent and service was to the standard expected. The bar are was a relaxing place to have a drink in the evening, and the rooms clean and neat in the usual HI Express manner. [Less]
Comfortable Hotel in Dreseden
By mmarjanovic
We very much enjoyed our recent trip to Dresden. Although the parking was completely full during our stay, the hotel was able to give us suggestions for close parking at a reasonable price. The hotel [More] was in easy walking distance from almost everything we wanted to see, and the reception desk was wonderful! [Less]
Room comfort
By Petra 1
The room was quite comfortable, however we would appreciate bigger, fluffier pillows. Also, when the foldable bed was used, it was impossible to access the window, nor use the desk. [Less]
Great!
By Nicvier
Very clean and luxourios. The Best of all is the bathroom. Wonderfull shower. [Less]
Probably the BEST in Germany!
By MR G B
I almost never give 5 star to the any hotels. But in that occasion I'm happy to do so. Only few very small bits which was not at required level for this property. 1. Has not been recognised as an [More] Elite Member and no priority check in offered ( Check in waiting time was 10 min) The rest was absolutely 5 star hotel experience. Very professional and extremely polite staff. Perfect English, communications skills. Room is great and I think better than some Intercontinental properties. As it's all Brand new. Breakfast included Champagne,which is great. Really recommended Hotel in Germany! P.S. Also want to Highlight the young German Housekeeping lady on 29/12/2015 approx 2pm, she didn't speak English or any other languages at all, but she was so nice and honestly try to help us understand, always approach us with a smile, and did everything possible help with our request. Absolute hidden gem within housekeeping team! [Less]
A one night business/leisure overnight, comfortable room and bed
By JWtD
We arrived early evening in HI Dresden at the lobby. The welcome was friendly and efficient. We got a room at the 3rd floor, executive room. A almost brand new hotel, almost trendy room, spacious and [More] foreseen with all possible comfort such as minibar, free of charge high speed wifi, flatscreen tv, good working desk with sufficient sprockets etc. TOP. The bed was king size and very comfortable. The noise isolation is next to perfectly. The bathroom is spacious and the spacious shower cabin is separated from the sink and toilet area by means of a door. Perfectly! The only minus were the dust balls and hairs we found around the toilet and under the sink, doesn' t look very attractive. The breakfast was good, a variety of fresh and good quality products was waiting for us on the buffet. Note, the breakfast room is quite small compared to the number of people who want to take their breakfast, means a waiting time before finding a seat. The hotel is located near the river and within a 10 mintes walk you are really in the old cosy center of Dresden, perfectly for business as well as leisure. I recommend this hotel for the traveller who wants to combine comfort, business and leisure in a quite luxe environment. Specially during the time we were there it was a pleasure to visit the Christmas markets, great experience and very cosy. [Less]
