Day 1: Arrival in Dresden
Dresden, also known as “Florence on the Elbe River”, is a cultural metropolis in Saxony. The view from the river towards the city is gorgeous. The Frauenkirche, ‘Church of Our Lady’, Brühlsche Terrasse, nicknamed ‘The Balcony of Europe’, the Semperoper Opera House and Zwinger Palace are just a few points of interest worth visiting. Spend the night in Dresden.

The Karl May Museum (Karl May was one of Germany’s best selling authors in the 19th and 20th century) is in Radebeul.
