    Spectacular photos. I've only been to Munich so far and it was a huge surprise. Very serene, castles, parks. Dresden through your photos looks pretty nice.

    Wow, I had no idea Dresden is so pretty! I'm been to quite a bit of Germany, but not to Dresden. I think that's going to need to change. What is that in the very last picture that I think someone is eating? It looks hot, cheesy and delicious. Jennifer recently posted...Bordeaux in 365 Bottles: March 2017My Profile

    I had never heard about Dresden in Germany but your post clearly told me how awesome it is and why it is in your favorite list. I felt so happy reading that they had tried to rebuild the whole city.The story of Catholic Church is so interesting and the palace looks gorgeous. Dresden goes to my bucket list. Thanks for sharing.

    While I know the name Dresden I really didn't know much about the place before reading your article. I can see why you like it so much. It is really a beautiful city with lots of places to see and things to do. The architecture is amazing as can be seen in the buildings of the Dresden Palace, Cathedral and the Semperoper Opera House.

    You captured Dresden so beautifully.. wow! Thanks for putting this wonderful city on my radar. I will definitely take the walking tour as I think exploring a new place by foot is the way to go. Happy travels :) Carmen's Luxury Trvl (@carmensluxtrvl) recently posted...MidiCi – The Neapolitan Pizza Company comes to Fort LauderdaleMy Profile

    A fantastic job has been done to restore this city! The architecture is just spectacular and the details on The Fürstenzup Wall Dresden look amazing. I would love to check it out in person someday.

    It's nice that Dresden was rebuilt in the same style as it was before it was bombed and destroyed. What a horrible things. That photo is haunting. I'd love to check it out now and see how it's rebuilt itself. The cheese shop sounds amazing.

    Dresden is such a beautiful and underrated city! It's hard to believe it was almost destroyed during WW2 - they've done such a great job rebuilding.

    Dresden seems like it has sprung to life from the pages of a fairy tale or from the easel of a master painter. Such is its beauty that comes alive in your pictures. A walk through this enchanting city would definitely be a sublime experience. A knowledgeable and passionate guide would take the experience to an altogether different level.

    For many reasons Dresden (and Berlin btw) are on the top of my German wish list so this guide will come very handy when I finally go there. I liked how you combined b&w post war pictures with current pictures, nice work! Elisa recently posted...How to See Paris Differently – Paris from Bottom to TopMy Profile

    The Baroque beauty of Dresden is unparalleled, specially considering that it literally rose from the ashes. Your pictures are wonderful...and I am wondering what time of the year and day you chose for these, since there are no people to be seen!

    Dresen sounds fantastic too explore and very exciting with historic buildings. Too bad it was 90% which was bombed, pretty sad that so much history disappeared.

    Sometimes when we visit medieval towns we talk about how the old talents are lost, but looking at Dresden and reading that most of it was rebuilt post-WWII, clearly says that it can still be done. It's a charming and beautiful city. Rhonda Albom recently posted...Rainy Auckland Night: A New Zealand Photo EssayMy Profile

    Dresden is such a stunning city. It really is hard to believe that it was bombed to oblivion during the war. I visited when I was a "tween" living in Germany, this just makes me want to return. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful thoughts and photos. sara | belly rumbles recently posted...Easter Chocolate Mud Cupcakes using Russian Piping TipsMy Profile

    I can't believe twice we've been to Europe and both times we've missed an opportunity to see this gorgeous city. It is so beautiful and I have no idea why we never got there, but thank you for this inspiring post, reminding me that we MUST get there next time.

    I'm actually surprised - never imagined Dresden to be so beautiful! And the national park with the rocks which resemble the rock city in Czech Republic - spectacular! Have to visit one day :)

      Maybe it is the same city from the Czech - half of the park is in the Czech and the other in Germany. It sits right on the boarder. :)
