Location

Dresden, the capital of Saxony and the former residence of the Wettin dynasty, is a city of art and culture with magnificent buildings, many world-class museums as well as a rich tradition of theatre and music. No book about the history of architecture can forget to mention Dresden’s Zwinger Palace. The reconstructed Frauenkirche, the Semper Opera House and the Royal Palace as well as many other historical monuments and collections define the image of the city.
