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.

There was plenty of space, the beds were comfortable and the showers excellent. The village pub,Stiller Fritz, is 10 minutes walk away and does good hearty meals. There is plenty to do in the Saxon Switzerland. Our only gripe was that the internet worked intermittently.

We didn't want to be in the city but close enough to make a quick trip by car. We were pleasantly surprised at the Gardenhouse offered by host. It is a free-standing A-Frame home with a loft for sleeping. It comes perfectly equipped with everything and anything we could think of to make our stay perfect! If we needed something, like a bottle opener or bread knife it was there and easy to find. We were greeted by the owners. They helped carry our luggage to the A-frame and proceeded to answer any and all of our questions. After they left we noticed the fresh flowers and bottle of wine on the table. Such a wonderful welcome! We looked around and were amazed at how clean and organized everything was. Right out the door was a patio with a table, chairs and a lantern complete with a candle! The shower and bath were seperate and a little rustic but also very clean. A stone, short path leads to the "bathroom." While taking a shower there is a window strategically placed so while enjoying the hot water you can also enjoy the natural view! We enjpoyed Dresden but we really enjoyed relaxing at our own personal Gardenhouse at the end of the day! Definitely a 5 star experience.
