Berlin is more than just the city: Day trips give a particular spice to the Berlin experience.
Dresden is one of the most beautiful residential cities of Europe and easy to visit in a day trip from Berlin. Having been entirely erased from the surface of the earth during the disastrous bombing of February 13, 1945, Dresden arose from the dead and was reconstructed to its former splendor, which was eternalized by the Italian painter Canaletto in the 18th century.
Visit the world famous opera house Semperoper, the splendid rococo palace Zwinger, walk across the two market squares Alter Markt and Neuer Markt and visit the most famous church of Dresden, the Frauenkirche, destroyed in 1945 and reconstructed in 2005. Walk along the famous Brühl’s Terrace above the majestic river Elbe or visit one of the famous museums of the old residence. You should not miss the specialties of Saxon cuisine in one of the many restaurants in the old town.
