Cheap flights to Dresden

Full of imperial grace, you’ll be longing to get lost amongst Dresden’s imperial palaces, parklands and riverside walks.  Dubbed the ‘Florence of the north’ in the 18th century, the German city of Dresden still retains all the rich and romantic charm of Tuscany’s finest city. Once the home of Saxon kings, this city certainly has a royal flavour to it.

The skyline alone will leave you breathless with its maze of spires and towers, domes, arches and carved angels – fairytale cities don’t come much better than this. You will come across a remarkable array of buildings, palaces, cathedrals and general architectural extravagance just waiting to be explored.

Shopping

April 2014
Slip off the tourist trail for a mosey around the backstreets of Neustadt, lined with baroque houses and inner courtyards. This chilled-out neighbourhood is home to Dresden's coolest bars, boutiques and restaurants. Stop to buy cheese at the world's most beautiful dairy (according to Guinness), Pfunds Molkerei (79 Bautzner Strasse, pfunds.de), where cherubs frolic on magnificently tiled walls.

Sightseeing

April 2014
Lodged in Dresden's neo-Renaissance former arsenal, the Albertinum (2 Tzschirnerplatz, skd.museum) takes a romp through the Romantic movement at its exhibition Constable, Delacroix, Friedrich, Goya (16 March - 14 July). From here, cross the Elbe River to the north bank for a stroll through flower-speckled gardens with picture-postcard views of Dresden's dome-topped Altstadt.

Key Areas

July 2013
There's no finer way to take in the city's domes, spires, bridges and castles in summer than aboard one of the paddle steamers that ply the River Elbe. The 90-minute tours depart from the Terrassenufer in the Altstadt. saechsische-dampfschiffahrt.de

Day Trips

July 2013
Paddle steamers run by the same company also glide further along the Elbe to Schloss Pillnitz, a whimsical baroque summer palace. Explore the chestnut tree-lined avenues, Chinese pavilion and palm house in the fountain-dotted gardens, which are a riot of colour and fragrance in summer. schlosspillnitz.de
