A place for contemporary urbanism

In June 2009 Dresden lost its UNESCO World Heritage Site status – the city’s new four-lane Waldschlösschenbrücke Bridge across the river Elbe is a blot on the unique scenery of the valley. For Dresden this might have a detrimental effect on the area’s tourism, although nothing has actually been lost: The Frauenkirche still stands in its glorious beauty to remind of the allied bombing in 1944 when over 30000 people lost their lives; the Royal mews, the Semper Opera House and the Swinger Palace also maintain their unique beauty untainted. And you will have a lot more to discover with!

Prager Strasse

Shopping in Dresden

Stay Editor's Note

Connecting the main railway station with the city center, Prager Strasse is the borderline between traditional buildings and the prefabricated blocks of flats.

Prager Strasse is a good choice to take a walk, or do some shopping. From place to place, a cozy little cafe will lure you in, for a cup of tea and an apple strudel.
