Dresden: Top things to do and see

Dresden, a city in the East of Germany, has been in the spotlight some years ago. The reason for that was the plan to build the so-called “Waldschlösschenbrücke” – a bridge which relieves traffic and makes it possible to get from A to B way faster. The only problem was that UNESCO was of the opinion that Dresden is not worth the status of being a World Heritage Site any more. Even though Dresden has been kicked of the list, there is no rational reason it isn’t worth visiting anymore! Top things to do and see in Dresden:

  1. Go through the Stallhof

The Stallhof is one of the oldest designed championship courses of the world. Sometimes, horse shows still take place there.
