Destination guide

Dresden's fairy tale setting is fit for a king… and you!

Based in a lush green valley, along the banks of the River Elbe, Dresden was the one-time home for the Kings of Saxony, Germany's eastern state. As a result, the city developed a rich cultural landscape, a reputation it maintains today due its world-renowned art museums and classic architecture. The city offers something for everyone, from the brick-lined streets of Old Town dotted with quaint shops and cozy cafes, to the surrounding mountains and forests, which cater to recreational enthusiasts. Book a Dresden vacation rental and you're sure to create memories to last a lifetime.

Things to do

Art lovers explore Dresden's broad canvas

If you have art enthusiasts staying in your Dresden vacation rental, the city offers plenty for them to see. Start with a tour of Frauenkirche, the city's beloved 18th-century baroque church, topped with an iconic grand dome. For an equally lavish setting, explore Dresden Castle and Zwinger, 2 former royal palaces transformed into revered art museums. You can spend weeks exploring all of Dresden's museums, with institutions dedicated to everything from military history and science to transportation. Finally, dress to the nines and treat yourself to a performance at Semperoper, the city's beloved opera house, rebuilt, like much of the city center, after heavy bombing during WWII.

Activities

Discovering Dresden: whatever floats your boat… or bike

If you're looking for a workout, Dresden offers bike-sharing stations all over the city. Pick up a 2-wheeler in Old Town and peddle your way past ornate Renaissance and baroque buildings, pausing to enjoy a leisurely lunch or a quick shopping excursion. You'll not only enjoy a unique perspective of the city on a River Elbe boat ride, but narrated tours provide insight into Dresden's rich history. Several tour companies provide transportation to Saxon Switzerland National Park, located just an hour outside the city, whose craggy hillsides make the site a popular rock climbing destination.

Weather

Walking in a winter wonderland (in eastern Germany)

Thinking about booking a Dresden vacation rental for the winter? Make certain you bundle up as daytime highs barely stay above freezing, while the lows dip below 32 degrees. The region is also blanketed in snow during the winter, with January receiving the most flurries. The city starts to thaw out in the spring with highs in the 50s and 60s. Summers bring plenty of sunshine and pleasant 75-degree temperatures. July and August are the wettest months, however, so bring an umbrella. Crisp air returns in the fall, when temperatures drop back down into the 50s and 40s.

Natural features

Rock and rolling hills—peaks and parks paint the scenery

The only thing more majestic than Dresden's grand architecture is its natural surroundings. Tucked away in a green valley dotted with untouched meadows, the city is surrounded by the towering peaks of the Ore Mountains to the south and the Elbe Sandstone Mountains to the east. Just north of the city is Dresden Heath, a 15,000-acre green forest where wild boar, hare, and deer roam free. Nearby Saxon Switzerland National Park offers dramatic scenery as thousands of sandstone rock formations rise from forest-covered hillsides.
