Vacation rentals in Dresden

A holiday apartment on the Elbe

In contrast to many other cities in eastern Germany, the Saxon capital Dresden has retained its baroque appearance and offers a wide range of holiday accommodation in all price categories. If you want to pitch your tents in the city, which also bears the nickname "Elbflorenz", we recommend a holiday apartment in the old town, where you live in pretty apartment buildings in the immediate vicinity of world-famous sights such as the Semper Opera House or the Dresden Zwinger. You can also enjoy a wonderful view of the picturesque Elbe and the treasures of the city from one of the numerous modern holiday apartments near the Palaisgarten and the Inner Neustadt.

A vacation rental on the outskirts of town

If you prefer to live in a vacation rental outside the busy city centre, Dresden offers ideal conditions for a fulfilled holiday in its extensive peripheral locations. Especially many vacation rentals can be found in the districts Leuben and Prohlis in the east as well as Friedrichstadt and Pieschen in the western part of Dresden. The vacation rentals around the Dresdner Heide near Albertstadt and in the district of Klotzsche, where you live on the edge of a unique natural landscape, are also convincing with their idyllic location. Such a vacation rental is ideal for families or holidays with dogs due to the large amount of space available and the proximity to nature.

Travelers and Activities

Dresden for history lovers

On a tour of Dresden's Old Town, you will breathe a breath of history as you walk along Sophienstraße and admire the residence palace of August the Strong, the Semper Opera House and the Court Church. On the opposite bank of the Elbe you will finally meet the equestrian statue of August, also known as the Golden Horseman. Your journey into the history of the city is rounded off by a visit to the historical museums of the city. The Military History Museum at Olbrichtplatz, the Museum of Ethnology in the Japanese Palais and the Armoury in the Zwinger are particularly worth seeing. An insider tip for history lovers is also a detour into the centuries-old fortress vaults below the Brühlsche Terrasse.

Dresden for culture lovers

As a friend of art and culture you are in good hands in Dresden, because from your holiday apartment in the city centre it is usually only a few minutes' walk to the extensive art collections, such as those in the Residenzschloss. Other hot spots include the Gemäldegalerie der Alten Meister in the Semperbau, the Galerie der Neuen Meister in the Albertinum, the Kunsthalle in the Lipsiusbau, the municipal gallery with its collection of paintings from the 19th and 20th centuries, and the Museum der Dresdner Romantik in the Kügelgenhaus. While cabaret lovers can also enjoy entertaining cabaret stages such as "Die Herkuleskeule" and "Franks KleinKunsteller", film fans in the Crystal Palace are getting enthusiastic.

In 2013, a tunnel weighing 4246 kilograms was reached at the Dresden Stollen Festival. That's a world record!

Best travel time for Dresden

Due to its great variety of events and sights, booking a holiday apartment in Dresden is worthwhile all year round. Thanks to up to eight hours of sunshine per day and average maximum temperatures of up to 23 degrees Celsius, the main travel season for the metropolis on the Elbe is between June and September. However, a trip to Dresden is also worthwhile in December, when the traditional Christmas market opens its doors and the smell of mulled wine and pastries blows through the streets at the foot of the snow-covered roofs.

Regular events

The calendar of events has the right event for every taste. While railway fans get their money's worth at the steam locomotive meeting in April, the Dixieland Festival in May attracts many tourists to the Elbe in its role as Europe's largest jazz festival. In summer we continue with the cultural festival "Bunte Republik" and the "Elbhangfest" in June, the "Lange Nacht der Wissenschaft" and the "Schlösser Nacht" in July as well as the open air film nights in August on the banks of the Elbe. Germany's oldest Christmas market on the Altmarkt marks the end of the event year. A secret tip and at the same time a real alternative is the "Medieval Christmas Market" in the Stallhof at Dresden's Residenzschloss.

Top 5 travel tips

Behind the Scenes of the Semper Opera House

After the destruction in the Second World War, the opera house, originally built in 1848, was reconstructed true to the original between 1977 and 1985. Take part in a one-hour guided tour and take a look behind the scenes of stage technology. While guided tours are usually possible daily between 10:00-16:30, tickets for highly frequented performances must be ordered several weeks in advance.

A visit to the Zwinger

The Dresden Zwinger is one of the main attractions of the city and a genuine baroque unique specimen, which was the scene of rushing celebrations during the times of August the Strong. Today you can stroll through the gardens, marvel at the galleries and exhibition rooms or visit the Mathematical-Physical Salon, which houses a concave mirror that can melt metal at 1,500 degrees Celsius.

Steamboat trip on the Elbe

The true beauty of the baroque city, which is popularly known as the "jewelry box", is revealed to you on a boat trip from the Elbe. Climb one of the historic paddle steamers and enjoy the ride on the Elbe while gliding past the picturesque facades and enjoying a glass of wine on the sun deck.

Risen from Ruins

Like the Semper Opera House, the Frauenkirche was also a victim of the bombardments during the Second World War and of contempt until the fall of the Iron Curtain. Since the completion of the reconstruction in 2005 the landmark of Dresden shines again in its old glory and gives you an impression of how the sacral building once ended. The Frauenkirche is open to visitors from Monday to Friday. Those who are interested in the little and big secrets of the church should take part in one of the guided tours that take place regularly after the devotions.

Dresden pastries

What should not be missing from a visit to the Saxon state capital is the famous Dresden pastry, because the city is famous above all for its Christmas stollen, which are delivered to the whole world on time for Christmas. In addition to the Stollen, you should also try the cheese cake-like Dresden egg snail.
