Dresden's main square is a pulsating centre of social and cultural life as well as a popular shopping area - you can either visit the lively outside market or one of the many boutiques located in this area.

Dresden has lots of attractions - many of the historical spots are located at or near the Old Market Square. Don't miss it!

Wonderful authentic local market, plenty of tables where to sit and taste local food and drinks. There were even some choruses and traditional music players on that weekend. Definitely worth a visit if you're in town!

It is just hard not to like Dresden. Maybe it is because I had always associated it with WW2 and having been bombed out (which it was). But there is so much life here now and the Altmarkt is another area that makes Dresden vibrant.

It is about a 15 to 20 minute walk. It is flat but through the city much of it is a pedestrian area of stores including a Holiday Inn Express. An Ibis hotel is next to the Markt also.
