Apartments Dresden – a perfect trip in Germany
Whilst staying in a Dresden apartment, why not book yourself onto a city tour to get a good insight into the city and its roots. On many of these tours, you will pass the Dresden Frauenkirche, a church that was finally rebuilt in 2005 after many years of reconstructing. There is an outstanding viewing platform available here which gives you a view of the entire city and the inside design of the church is well worth checking out. The Neustadt district, located near the river Elbe, is a beautiful area of Dresden which has many cafés, restaurants and parks to stroll through during the summer. The Dresden Elbe Valley where you can get a view over the river meadows and the city of Dresden. Stretching over 20 kilometres, this area also hosts many film nights during the summer period so whilst the sun sets, you can an exceptional view of the entire city of Dresden. Well worth checking out whilst staying in a Dresden holiday apartment. If you fancy traveling around upon your stay, head to the other large Eastern city of Leipzig; perfect for sightseeing and shopping!
After a day of sightseeing, perhaps you just want to kick back in your Dresden apartment and try cooking German style! Then why not try making Bratkartoffeln, fried potatoes with added onion or bacon, whichever suits your taste! Sausages are of course very traditional as is Sauerkraut, better known as pickled cabbage. Hearty potato soup is also a great German speciality. For those with a sweet tooth, we would recommend rather than trying to make, why not go out to one of the many restaurants and cafés in Dresden and sample Quarkkeulchen (sweetened potato pancakes) or Eierschecke (cheesecake). If you enjoy your stay in a Dresden holiday apartment, then why not visit West Germany next time you plan your holiday to Germany and visit the vibrant city of Cologne. Visit during Cologne Carnival and see how the Germans celebrate! Wherever you decide to stay, enjoy your holiday.
