Bruehl's Terrace, or the "Balcony of Europe" as it is often called, as well as Dresden Fortress with its cannon yards and casemates located immediately underneath provide comprehensive insight, both above and below ground, into the history of Dresden. The Dresden Stable Yard represents one of the few testimonials of the glamorous era of the Renaissance in Dresden.

Tips for trips

The Gardens of Kings

Take a walk in Saxony’s most beautiful gardens, allow to be inebriated by their scents, experience unexpected views and gain undreamt-of insights. 
Relax in the spacious gardens or stroll in sunshine, accompanied by the splashing of fountains. And take a piece of Schloesserland home with you: a flower bed brick from Bad Muskau, a camellia shoot from Pillnitz, summer flowers or an Azalea from Weesenstein can all be purchased in those places.
