... is somewhat surprising, considering the hammering it received during WWII - particularly on Kristallnacht.
The city is a mix of very modern development and new shopping malls and shops along with the 15th And 16th century historic buildings and cobblestone streets.
We continued to check out the town until 7:30 when our bodies ran out of fuel. Before heading to bed, we shared a bottle of Reisling in the room and toasted the city if Dresden.
our first stop in Germany was the city of Dresden. Many impressive structures and a statue of Martin Luther at the centre square. A local speciality of curry wurst at a very mild level 2 out of 7. bearing in mind that 3 is as hot as tobasco sauce. Back onto bus then to Berlin! (And the ...
... they had not decided to rebuild the Altstadt in this way.

TravelPod Member ReviewsAm Terrassenufer Hotel Dresden
I came with few expectations as it was a late booking through Wotif, the same day I decided to go to Dresden. My room is comfortable enough, and quite large compared to some rooms.
