Culture in Dresden

  • Panorama

Dresden amazes its guests with unique individual experiences. Here a venerable (hi)story and lively culture scene come together.

Admire the treasures of the Saxonian kings at the Green Vault. Come up on world known paintings like the Sistine Madonna in our art galleries. Explore milestones of architecture, from the baroque Our Lady’s Church to modern age, around the Military History Museum. Listen to the musical sounds of world-class artists in the Semperoper as well as in the Palace of Culture. You can find your favourite place – to stay at or to return to - between feisty Neustadt with its trendy pubs and hedonists and the historic downtown with its art treasures.

Use our special offers at the weekends for your perfect holiday in Dresden.

We gladly arrange city tours, theatre visits or trips to the appealing outskirts of Dresden. Have you already been to Meißen, Saxon Switzerland, Castle Pillnitz or fairytale-like Moritzburg?
