The best things to do in Dresden

Dresden is known as the baroque city because many of its buildings and churches are faithful to this style. The Frauenkirche, one of the top places to visit in Dresden, is the largest Protestant building in city and is an example of this type of architecture. It is known worldwide as a monument against war and as a symbol of reconciliation and from there you can get a beautiful panoramic view of the entire city, providing you with an excellent vantage point of the best Dresden attractions.

The Altstadt and Neustadt, on the banks of the river, are other attractions in Dresden that are beautiful examples of Baroque architecture. Visiting Hofkirche is another of the many things to do in Dresden. It is the church of the court and the second highest religious building in the city after the rebuilt Frauenkirche.

Another important entry in the list of what to do in Dresden is the iconic Brühl's Terrace. It extends along the Elbe near the old town, and in it is the College of Fine Arts. Augustus Bridge, a bridge across the Elbe, and Dresdner Schloss, the former residence of the kings of Saxony, are some more of the things to see in Dresden that you can't miss.

In fact, the list of Dresden activities is wide and includes buildings of great value and museums of great importance as Grünes Gewölbe, Militärhistorisches Museum der Bundeswehr, and Mathematisch-Physikalische Salon.
