A 10-minute stroll from the hotel, the Frauenkirche Dresden is an unmissable baroque church with an intriguing history. Built in the 18th century, it was decimated by WWII bombing and reopened in 2005 after years of meticulous reconstruction. If you’re lucky you’ll catch a Saturday concert or an organ recital, and you can take the lift to the viewing platform for sweeping views across the city.
Just around the corner from the hotel, the Altmarkt is a historic square which hosts a popular Christmas market that's been held for centuries. Check out the impressive Kreuzkirche church, rebuilt several times since the 18th century, and take in city views from its tower. Shoppers have plenty of choice here too, with stores at the Altmarkt Galerie offering big-name brands, clothing and jewellery.
Don't Go Home Without
