Mar 2022 Dresden, Germany

If you make your way to Dresden, and the weather at all allows, I recommend getting some picnic provisions and heading to Alaunplatz, a big park on the north of the city and/or along the bank of the Elbe River which cuts through the center. Both have large grassy areas where you’ll find a lot of people hanging out.

Other than this the city’s pretty relaxed with some nice grand buildings in the center, a lot of shopping along a walking street to the south, and up in the north by Alaunplatz, there’s a bit of a hipper neighborhood. If I go back I think I’d opt for staying on the north side of town, but a week there was probably plenty for me. I’d give it a short-term/quick look recommendation, but you might have a longer list of things you want to see; I’m very much just a wanderer taking in the sights.

Feedback is appreciated... let me know what you're liking, or not to help me keep improving the experience.
