Dresden

After a couple of nights on the world's quietest stellplatz in Tatzschwitz and having done a very long ride round the big lakes near Senftenberg we arrive in Dresden


We are parked on a dedicated stelllatz just 1km along the Elbe river from the Altstadt and are immediately bowled over by the city










The F├╝rstenzug (Saxon Sovereigns)





The Zwinger Palace











How it looked in 1945


Beautiful Neumarkt area which seemed very tranquil for a large city


No we didn't visit here


The Frauenkirche only recently completely restored



Both Hoffbrahaus and Augustiner breweries have fine establishments here, as we found out...




Very 'Nimble'



'The Fatherland, for Beauty & Honour"



The statue atop the Frauenkirche, paid for by the Brits as part of its restoration 


Seat commemorating the exclusion of Jews from the ramparts overlooking the Elbe
