Best things to do in Dresden

Historic Site
“Back in the day when Saxony was a kingdom, the Lords of Saxony lived in the Zwinger. Not all together, mind you. At different points in history. It's a big old building-complex and now there are classical music concerts and stuff like that in it. Nice to walk around.”

Natural Feature
“Near Frauenkirche there are some steps you can walk up to arrive at a big "balcony" of sorts overlooking the river...but you can walk along this pathway for some time in both directions, surveying the river, the old buildings, and some lovely ornamental landscape designs. Especially nice on a sunny day in the summer.”
