Local Guide

Swissotel Dresden is near the banks of Germany’s mighty River Elbe in the heart of the completely refurbished old town. With a room right next door to the baroque Frauenkirche and the Kulturpalast, and across from the Residenzschloss – with its magnificent Grünes Gewolbe treasure chamber – you’ll find walking to all the sights an easy undertaking, especially with the Semper Opera and Zwinger Palace just steps away as well.
