Germany: Leipzig and Dresden

About

For those travelers who love history and experience a new culture, Germany is a must visit.

An artistic match made in heaven, Leipzig and Dresden, the most beloved cities in the Saxony region bring together the best of classic and modern Germany. Dresden's location amidst the natural beauty of the Elbe valley is self-evident, but it was the creative drive and love of art of the Saxony Electors and later the city's inhabitants that gave Dresden its unique cultural landscape.The world-famous buildings such as Semper Opera House, the Church of Our Lady or the Zwinger Palace offer sensational views into Germany’s past. Leipzig, only a one-hour train ride from both the Saxon capital Dresden and the German capital Berlin, is known as the City of Music and Trade Fairs and home of the New Leipzig School in contemporary arts. The city that started the Peaceful Revolution of 1989 is today one of the most vibrant German cities and has become a hotspot for young urban creatives. Many great festivals and events are held here throughout the year, giving travelers a look into the life of the real Germany. 

Dresden Airport and Leipzig/Halle Airport provide numerous direct flights to and from the major German and European hubs. From each airport, the city center can be reached in just 15 minutes by S-Bahn (suburban train). www.dresden.aero; www.leipzig.aero
