Dresden is not only a gem of the Baroque, but young and dynamic. To relax after exploring the city or after a day at work, the vast Elbe meadows are a popular meeting place during the day and in the evening, especially in summer. For sports, you can avail of a wide range of sports grounds and sports facilities.
Dresden has a lot to offer for young people. A meeting point is the 9,200-square-meter skate park on Lingnerallee, very close to the Grand Garten, the city's green oasis. The Neustadt district is a contrast to Dresden’s genteel Old Town and is a mix of lovingly restored residential and commercial buildings, of elegant cocktail bars and traditional pubs, exclusive boutiques and fashionable outfitters. Highly recommended for an evening’s entertainment are the music clubs, hip bars and cafés in Neustadt.
The first thing anybody who comes to Dresden will certainly do is visit the famous sights in the city centre. A second glance will reveal Dresden‘s very special treasure – its beautiful residential areas. In comparison with other large cities in Germany, apartments and houses are quite affordable. From rustic half-timbered houses to elegant villas to modern apartments, Dresden has a wide range of residential opportunities.
