Dresden for a Day

Dresden, Germany, is the capital of Saxony and is now over 800 years old. Perhaps most well known for being firebombed in 1945 by allied forces, it's still a cultural and historical center. Many of the destroyed buildings have been reconstructed and a journey through the Old Town (Altstadt) is really something special.

  * The airport serves most German cities, but if
    you're close, the train is probably the easiest
    option. The two main stations are Dresden
    Neustadt and
Dresden Hauptbahnhof. The
    Hauptbahnhof station is located at the end of
    the main shopping district.

  * The Old Town is very walkable and the rest
    of the city can easily be reached by bus or tram.
    There is no subway system. Day Tickets are a
    good option if you'll be traveling around. They
    don't expire until 4am the next day and allow
    you to ride on buses, trams, and most ferries.

  * Zinger Palace is a baroque palace featuring
    sculptures, pavilions, and art collections. While
    entrance to the palace is free, some of the
    special galleries have an entrance fee.

  * Semperoper is the Dresden opera house and is
    one of the most beautiful in the world. Purchase
    opera tickets ahead of time if you want good
    seats. Sometimes there are seats in the back
    for sale the day of a performance or you can sit
    on the benches behind the seats for free.

  * Frauenkirche is the Church of Our Lady which
    was completely destroyed in WWII. It's fully
    reconstructed and you can even climb the tower
    provided you're wearing good shoes.
  * Another fun activity is taking a paddle steamer
    up or down the Elbe river. Start is at the castle
    dock
and go down to Meissen or up to Pillnitz.

New Blog Post: Keeping a Low Budget Airline Cheap

Mollie gives us some hints and tips about flying the budget skies.


Good deals are hard to come by when traveling abroad. Flying from Paris to Dublin? Before you look at regular priced fares consider a budget airline like Ryan Air or EasyJet. Last week I bought a flight for €3. I rubbed my eyes several times before realizing it wasn’t a dream. But, alas, there were several catches. Obviously a €3 flight is a great discovery in Europe… and it’s a steal, if you play your cards right.
