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.
If you fancy discovering Dresden from another perspective, consider hooking onto one of the guided tours run by Nightwalk Dresden. Clued-up guides shed light on everything from street art to Neustadt nightlife. Visit www.nightwalk-dresden.de for details.
Winter days are gallery days in Dresden. The Renaissance-style Albertinum, the city's former arsenal, is the splendid backdrop for the exhibition Dahl and Friedrich (February 6 to May 3, 2015). In collaboration with the Oslo National Museum, it showcases the Romantic landscapes of Caspar David Friedrich and Johan Christian Dahl.
