After a reinvigorating drive on the smooth and efficient German autobahn at some amazing speeds, we arrived in Dresden.
Thanks his morning, we gathered early for a discovery walk of the famous Semper Oper and the Zwinger, a baroque outdoor celebration park. A lovely steamboat ride on the Elbe river allowed us to relax a bit and enjoy the region.
Back on land, we continued a walking tour through the opera building and then through town. The city has seen massive destruction from WWII and while the former GDR began restaurations to rebuild, it took the reunification to give Dresden its former glory back.
I thoroughly enjoyed this city with its many public gardens and squares and I cannot wait to come back in two years and visit it’s museums. There are several gems not to be missed. More on that on a later post.
