The Bulow Residenz in Dresden gives a homely touch of luxury in Dresden’s Inner New Town.
Dresden is a city of art, and if you want to get your fix, the Altstadt in general and the Royal Palace in particular are the places to be.
If you’re interested in porcelain, then by all means visit the Porcelain Collection; otherwise I’d give it a miss.
Of the many museums in Dresden, one was recommended to us more than once: the Mathematisch-Physikalischer Salon in the Zwinger complex of the old town.
Lollis has everything you’d expect from a hostel — clean rooms, a comfortable place to sleep, and a friendly atmosphere. And for €44 for a double room, you’re certainly getting value for money.
On the whole, I’d recommend the two-day Dresden-City-Card if you want to visit most of the museums it gives access to, and you’re planning on using public transport more than once during your stay.
