I will be in Dresden for two days in early June and want to buy some small lace items. Can anyone recommend me a good place to buy, preferably in the Altstadt where we will be staying or easy walking distance across the river in the Innere Neustadt?
Have been looking at the Saxon Switzerland rock formations. We are traveling mid-December, so not looking at hiking. Are the S-Bahn routes from Dresden towards Bad Schandau mostly over ground as to offer scenic route across Saxon-Switzerland - or will I already get a look at this region if I'm taking the train from Dresden to Prague?
... planning to return for some hiking in the summer ...
We are planning a 3 hour stop over in Dresden between train trips. My first question is, are the lockers at the main Dresden Hbf. Secondly we would like to visit the Old Town, is it easy to get there from the train station. Any advise on making the most of our 3 hours in Dresden would be greatly appreciated.

Is there a village near Dresden where we can go for quieet walks amidst stunning scenery?:)
Whereabouts in dresden is the Russian Orthodox Church. I will be arriving by train at the Hauptbahnhof.
I've got about an hour maximum to spare in Dresden. I'm trying to work out what would be a nice, roughly circular, tram route. If we use the same road back and forth from the Old City to the station that's OK, but there's obviously a lot of options for something circular. Tram 11 from Hauptbahnhof all the way to Albertplatz, then back again on a #3, might do the job (it doesnt have to take an hour, less would be good). I guess the question might be better put "what's the best bridge to cross over on, and what's the best street that you really should do" and I can work it out from there. If you could also point me in the direction of some info on how and where to buy tickets and what the cost is, and the quickest way to get tickets for 15 (there's a whole gang of us) that would be nice but I'm sure I'll work that out eventually.
Hello! I'd like to know if there is a "day" ticket for public transport in Dresden and what means of transport it includes. Btw, I bought a ticket from Dresden Hbf to Frankfurt, but I changed my hotel and the new one is closer to the Altstadt Bahnhof. The train stops at the Altstadt Bahnhof and then moves to the Hbf. Do you know if there could be any problem if I took the train in the Altstadt Bahnhof? Thanks in advance!
Hello! I've seen on some VTers pages that there is a "Dresden Card" for museums. Is it really worth buying? Where can I get it? Will I enter museums for free or will only have a discount? With an international student card is the Dresden Card still worth buying? Thanks!
Thinking about a 1 day trip from Prague to Dresden via train on Dec 24. Will the city stores, tour areas be closed on that day? Are the trains unusually crowded on December 24? Is this a scenic train route? I don't want to waste time on a train to arrive in a city essentially closed for Christmas Eve. Thanks in advance for any advice on this issue.
I plan to visit dresden from 22nd Dec to 25th Dec. Will it be very cold and windy? what are chances of snow and if flights will fly during this time. I am from Mumbai, India and we really are not used to any winter as such. Thanks for sending quick answers
Hello all, my parents are going to Dresden from Karlovy Vary. Apart from sightseeing they would like to do some shopping. What i wanted to ask - if there are any shops with really big size clothes in Dresden? Thank you in advance for the answers.
Leaving Prague and have 2 spare nights before meeting friends in St Goar (via Frankfurt). We're mature-aged train travellers and have looked at Regensburg, Nurnberg, Bamberg and Dresden which are all sound appealing. Wondering what experienced VTers would recommend. Thanks for any opinions! Kathy
I am a female and will stay alone in Dresden for 4 days for a conference. In which part of the city should I take a hotel? I want to stay is an area with a restaurant and coffee shops that will be nice and safe for me alone at night. I’m trying to pick between the Hilton at the old city and The Westin in the new city, but other option is possible, that do you think? Thanks
I have a son going to Dresden with a youth group. What are the average costs for items, like hats, shoes and shirts? He is there for 1 week and looking at an indication of consumer prices for various items, clothing and accessories or tourist souvenirs.

Hello, we are a young couple (2o year old) and travelling for the first time in Germany. We are planning to see 4 cities in Germany which includes Dresden. We're wondering how many nights should we stay. We we're planning 4 to 5 nights but think it is too much. Is 4 to 5 nights too much ? Or maybe 3 is enough ? Thank you very much, Joe from Canada

I am a 74 year old female and will stay in Dresden June 2011 for 2 days, 2 nights, arriving by train. Suggestions for accommodation please, which part of the city?, hotels/hostels? I wish to do city tour and a river tour so which would be the best location. Cheers
We are probably basing ourselves in Pirna and we have a car. When we go to Dresden, what are the best options? - train? (I think there is an S-bahn, yes?) - car? (if so, what would be the best place to park? and what would the cost be?)
In Dresden early OCT 2010. Two of us. Mature couple. Any tips or suggestions as to best way(s) to do such a day trip on either a Sunday or Monday.
I can use some help! I need help being convinced not to spend more money than I need to on an upcoming trip to Dresden. I currently have two reservations booked. The first is at the brand new Bulow Palais Hotel at Königsstrasse 14, Neustadt. As far as I can tell it is a luxury property. The few reviews that I have seen are excellent; however, it is so new, I can't find much. They have offered a Jr. Suite with breakfast and Internet for €150,00 a night. My only concern is the location. I'm not sure if I want to stay in the Neustadt. I can't get a handle on how long a walk I have into the center of Altstadt. Nor, can I figure out how close I am to a tram. I've never been to Dresden before so I know nothing about the Neustadt area. My other option is the Taschenbergpalais. I currently have a Deluxe Room booked there at a cost of €259,00 a night including breakfast. Internet is an additional €25. It would cost alot more to stay there. Is is worth it? Is is worth dowgrading the room to stay there vs. the Bulow Palais. Any feedback particularly about the Neustadt would be appreciated. Thanks
Hello, I will be visiting Dresden for 4 days in Aug, and just wondering 1) I read that there are many beautiful buildings/monuments/churches etc in Dresden. Which one has guided tour inside ? What day/time is it ? Is it in English ? Which tour do you highly recommend ? 2) I will be arriving by train. Is there a tourist office there ? is there one in the town area ? How do i find it ? 3) What tram number that runs from Stauffenbergallee/Rudolf-Leonhard-Straße area to the old town (and vice versa) ? How late does it run at night ? Does anyone know of a good link for the tram map ? 4) I heard that the new town is where the fun is at night re cafe/bar/club etc Where exactly is the new town ? What street should I go ? Thank you.
