Make a holiday rental home or apartment in Dresden, Germany your home away from home

Dresden is an enchanting city in Saxony, Germany. Filled with historical monuments and known around the world for its beauty, Dresden, Germany is a magnificent place to take a holiday rental for a cultural city break. The city was damaged terribly during the Dresden bombings, but has now been largely restored to its former glory.

Things to do on holiday to Dresden, Germany

Sightseeing tours of Dresden can take many days as there is simply so much to see. Dating back over 800 years, Dresden was home to Saxon kings and princes throughout the free history of Saxony, and is therefore adorned with some of the most lavish palaces, castles and monuments found anywhere in what is now Germany. The Baroque Zwinger Palace must feature upon everyone’s Dresden tourist lists, as it is not only a stunning building, but now houses Dresden’s finest sculptures and art collections. The Semperoper Opera House and the iconic Frauenkirche are not to be missed either. There are simply too many world class attractions to mention in a single short guide to Dresden, but there are many excellent guides and tours available. If you arrive at your self catering Dresden accommodation without an itinerary, you can always relax in Dresden’s favourite park, the Grosser Garten to relax and work out where to start!

Fairs in Saxony are world famous, and Dresden is home to some of the finest. The Dresden City Festival in August is the largest event, fuelled by huge concerts, ancient spectacles and plentiful activities, perfect for the whole family. Germany’s oldest Christmas Market, the Striezelmarkt, lasts throughout December, drawing huge crowds to private rental apartments in Dresden, but it is the Dixieland Festival in May that really draws the plaudits. Europe’s most impressive jazz festival truly is an international affair, and during July and August, huge cinema screens decorate the banks of the River Elbe as the Filmmachte rolls into town.

During the evenings, Dresden is a true entertainment capital. There are hundreds of top class restaurants throughout the town, serving the finest delicacies of this proud gastronomic region. Dinner cruises along the River Elbe are particularly atmospheric, and once you have finished your evening meal, there are plenty of excellent bars and clubs to try.

Places to visit on holiday to Dresden, Germany

Even if you can only spend an afternoon in the mountains of Saxon Switzerland, the short journey is worth it a hundred times over. The scenery is awe-inspiring, and you may have trouble believing that it really is a natural landscape. Thick forests blanket the hills for as far as the eye can see, but it is the sheer, jutting rock formations that soar upwards from the forests below that really capture the imagination. Walking and climbing in Saxon Switzerland is unrivalled and a highly recommended experience.

Tram 13 west 1 stop, then 7 from BOISCHPL right to train station or 8 to Theatrepl. Kitchen & bathroom excellent. Bedroom/Living room quite cramped/small. but fine for 2 people. Beds very comfortable. Pleasant neighbourhood. Food shops, cafes, restaurants, launderette and a park all nearby.

(They were also very patient with my attempts at speaking German!) The apartment was very clean and comfortable with everything we needed. The pretty garden and pool was also bonus. The view from the balcony was lovely. The town has a supermarket, wonderful bakery, butcher and farm shop a 5 min walk away. We were easily able to get to central Dresden, we rented a car so we could also travel to Prague, however, the public transport was excellent. We enjoyed staying in this beautiful location and will recommend to family and friends. Thank you to Gisela and Bernd.
