Dresden Highly Recommended Highly Recommended Highly Recommended : Michelin's recommendations


A Baroque jewel nestling along the banks of the River Elbe, Dresden, the capital of Saxony, is often referred to as the Florence of the Elbe. This monumental city is graced by ceremonial staircases, panoramic terraces and huge squares adorned with statues of solemn-faced saints and monarchs. Almost entirely destroyed following the fall of the Reich in 1945, Dresden has experienced an extraordinary renaissance – its main monuments and former GDR buildings have been tastefully restored and its historic centre pedestrianised.
