The drive between Berlin and Prague takes just under four hours – although that does take into consideration the 140+ km/hour travel along the autobahns, which is an exhilarating way to travel. One of the stops along the way, and it falls exactly around the half way point, is Dresden. Now our time there was short, only a couple of hours with it being a transit stop for us, but it would be very remiss of me not to mention and put up a few pictures to show you how stunning this German town is.
Dresden was one of those surprises that pop up when you least expect them to. We had planned a lunch stop but without a doubt, we could have easily spent a couple of days in Dresden having now experienced. Set on the River Elbe, Dresden’s town centre was fantastic – the most amazing Christmas Markets, sensational cuisine (my deer and boar bratwurst was the best sausage I’ve ever tasted, a hands down winner) and the antiquated buildings and cobbled streets were truly divine. We were even treated to an opera song outside the main church area, which was just stunning and added to our memorable experience!
So here are a few pictures of our stop in Dresden to whet your appetite, and next time we will be sure to stay for a couple of days, as should you if you get the chance to visit!
