  • A gorgeous view of the glory of dresden very much in the Canelletto style . Representative paintings of this view are shown in the Cosel Pals restaurant also. Do go and take a picture.  more »
  • Hereby the look is right next to the Augustus bridge meant (Dresden from the right bank of the Elbe downstream of the Augustus bridge is an oil painting of Canaletto of mentioned painter Bernardo Bellotto, this has painted in Dresden in 1748) - but the silhouette of Dresden from the new town to see side is beautiful from any point. With blue skies during the day or at night with the stars for romantics - this city is just beautiful!

  • August the Strong took one Italian painter and made him the court painter. When he painted the original panorama of Dresden, who would have thought that it will forever in the future have this view bear his name, the Canaletto View. In fact, he painted 14 of these masterpieces. To me, sunset was the perfect time to enjoy Canaletto’s inspiration. The colour casted by the setting sun is closer to the paintings. Also gone are the tourists who would pose selfies at this giant frame mockup (which incidentally is what I’m using to frame this picture. Sorry, guilty as charged). The river bank is now filled with local folk enjoying the evening, having a picnic, cycling, running and simply smelling the roses.
  • From here painted Bernardo the lottery, better known as Canaletto, his famous view of Baroque Dresden. It is impressive that the view has hardly changed. A Bank and a red border round off the vantage point.

Where to stay in Dresden

The Old City, or Altstadt district, is the city's historical center. You'll find a wide selection of accommodations around the major tourist sites. For an area that stays active both day and night, consider lodging in Aussere Neustadt, located northeast of the Old City. The Hellerau District has an urban and hip vibe, thanks to the fashionable young locals who populate the area. Boutique hotels contribute to the area's chic feel.
