Holiday rentals and lettings in Dresden
Dresden is a large city in northern Germany. Its territory is very spread out: there are holiday rentals over a large area. Nevertheless, all are easy to reach. The city is served by an international airport located on the edge of the city. Shuttles provide a link to the city centre. Dresden also has a central station that can be reached directly from France. Off-centre locations are also easily accessible, thanks to Dresden's dynamic and dense transport network.Spacious and elegant holiday rentals
The accommodation available in Dresden is a charming residence. Wherever they are located, they inherit a typical architecture. They have high windows and beautiful parquet floors. The emphasis is on common spaces. The kitchens are often American style and the living rooms are spacious. Rentals are characterised by the volume of their spaces. As is often the case in Germany, the surfaces are large but there are few parts. Small families and couples will be able to live with it. But for larger groups, it is better to target modern rentals with several rooms.

Location and orientation
Dresden is one of the greenest cities in Europe. It is located in Saxony, on the border with Bavaria. These regions are characterised by their natural environment and beautiful forests. Part of the city is located on the banks of the Elbe. The city was originally a small Slavic fishing village. The city thus benefits from an ideal location between sea and mountains. But this situation also made it a strategic weapon during the Second World War. The city was largely destroyed during the conflict.The most beautiful districts of Dresden
The necessary reconstruction imposed by the bombing of Dresden has worked in the city's favour. The city centre has been very nicely rebuilt and completely pedestrianised. It is particularly pleasant to stay there. Historic sites are nearby and there is no need to use transport or car. The modern Elbe district is an excellent alternative. It is located near the Dresden rose garden and is full of green spaces. Other options: all the districts along the Elbe, such as Tolkewitz or Johannstadt, to the south of the city.
Travellers and activities
Dubbed "La Florence de l'Elbe", Dresden boasts buildings as splendid as its Italian cousin. Among the most beautiful are the Zwinger Palace, the Hofkirche (also called the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity) or the Japanese Palace. Located in the hypercentre, these masterpieces of neoclassical and baroque architecture provide an opportunity for a cultural stroll. If you love music, you will be amazed by the Semper Opera House, a magnificent 19th century building. The Dresden Palace, very beautiful from the outside, also deserves to be entered for its collection of works of art.Dresden for families
Families will be delighted by the green spaces that Dresden has to offer for walking. Along the Elbe or in the city's gardens, it is easy to find something to spend a good time in peace. The Elba Valley, on the edge of the city, is an ideal place for a small extra-urban escape. The hilly and green landscapes of the surrounding area are very pleasant. The city also has a huge zoo within it
We know the mythical celebration of the Christmas Market in eastern France and Germany. But we know less than in Dresden, this tradition goes back to... 1434!
