As the capital city of the German state of Saxony, Dresden stands proudly on the banks of the River Elbe. The city is a phoenix risen from the ashes; standing tall despite being heavily bombed during World War II, it has reclaimed its splendour through widespread restoration efforts.

Known as 'Silicon Saxony', Dresden boasts a dynamic economy primed in high-tech sectors, alongside playing host to the remarkable Dresden University of Technology. The city's rich lineage of artistic and cultural relevance dates back to the Neolithic era, with Dresden serving as the capital and royal residence for the Electors and Kings of Saxony. Whether it's the ebb of European politics or the changing tides of history, Dresden has been a significant part of many a global event, including the Napoleonic Wars and the 20th-century manufacturing boom.

When to visit Dresden

When planning your trip to Dresden, aim for the months between May and September. These provide the optimum conditions of splendid weather, perfect for exploring the architectural marvels and soaking up the vibrant culture of the city. The warmest months are June, July, and August, ideal for long walks by the Elbe or a picnic amidst the green expanses. Despite being the rainiest, these months offer an enchanting view of the city draped in rain, adding to the magic.

However, if you are seeking a quieter experience, fewer tourists visit during January and February. Despite the chillier conditions, the allure of Dresden continues to warm the hearts of its visitors all year round.
