Must See & Do
In life, Dresden was famous throughout Europe as 'Florence on the Elbe', owing to the efforts of Italian artists, musicians, actors and master craftsmen who flocked to the court of Augustus the Strong, bestowing countless masterpieces upon the city. In death, Dresden became even more famous. Shortly before the end of WWII, Allied bombers blasted and incinerated much of the historic centre, a beautiful jewel-like area dating from the 18th century. More than 35,000 people died, and in bookshops throughout town you can find books showing the destruction (or read about it in Kurt Vonnegut's classic Slaughterhouse Five). Rebuilding began under the communist regime in the 1950s and accelerated greatly after reunification.
FOODS TO TRY:

Pfunds Mölkerei was named ‘The Most Beautiful Milk Shop in the World’, so not only is it full of delicious dairy products, but it’s like taking a step back in time.
