Dresden, the capital of Saxony and former domicile of Saxony Kings, is famous for its historic Baroque architecture of the city center laying at the Elbe river. From Slavonian origins, Dresden had developed into one of Germany’s powerful cities by the Baroque period bearing many unique monuments like churches, the Semper opera, the Dresden Zwinger or castle. After tremendous destruction during the 2nd world war and rebuilt during the last decades Dresden is today shining in its old splendour. The historic core is home of many restaurant, museums and art galleries and attracts millions of tourists every year. A riverboat tour on the Elbe with one of the historic paddle steamers complete the stay here. Besides the touristic aspects, Dresden has developed during last years into Europe’s largest site of Microelectronic Industry with home of global players, many medium-sized companies and a strong connection to research institution and the university.
