Dresden

The Church of Our Lady in Dresden is one of the defining symbols of German reunification. The church was reduced to rubble during the Second World War and it took until after the fall of the Berlin Wall for reconstruction work to begin. Of course, that’s not all Dresden has to offer. @jamesrelfdyer went in search of more historic buildings in the fabulous old town. But if you want a break from all the sightseeing, then the surrounding region is great for getting out into nature or visiting castles and palaces. Read on for more inspiration.
