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.
If you’re interested in Ancient Egypt and have a Bonn Welcome Card, an hour or so at the Egyptian Museum of Bonn University might be a good option.
One of Bonn’s main claims to fame is that it is where Beethoven was born, and a visit to the composer’s birth house is an important stop on many tourists’ itinerary.
When visiting a new town or city, it’s always interesting to learn a little about its history — so it was logical that a visit to the StadtMuseum formed part of our itinerary while we were in Bonn.
