Along the way, see sites such as Brühl's Terrace, once nicknamed “The Balcony of Europe” for its long views of the River Elbe. Go to Schloßplatz, where a paving stone marks the spot where Napoleon set off for the Battle of Dresden in August 1813. See some of the city’s most important landmarks in Theaterplatz, including the Zwinger Palace and Semper Opera House.
Continue to the large market square of Altmarkt, and admire the baroque reconstructions of Neumarkt, before going to see the “stone bell” dome of the Frauenkirche, symbol of the post-war reconciliation.
