The bright side of Dresden (IG)

It’s 6am in southeast Germany, and I’d like to know how this city will look on a spring morning. Unfortunately, there’s mid-level cloud and there won’t be any direct sun this morning. I’m no longer in a rush, and by 7am, I’m on the Carolabrücke over the Elbe river for the following view of the Dresden skyline.

Later that evening I’m in Pulverturm Restaurant near the Frauenkirche, and I’m among about two dozen other travel-trade and -press representatives from around the world. I have a Saxon version of the Sauerbraten, accompanied by red sauerkraut and a big potato dumpling: the right combination of sweet, savory, and sour, representing Saxony.

The evening ends with a guided-tour of the interior to the city’s famous Semperoper opera house. Other groups outside are waiting to enter the opera house to have a look inside; we’re fortunate to leap ahead and have a look inside.

I made all of the photos above on 22 April 2015 with a Canon EOS6D mark1. I’m grateful to Germany Tourism and Dresden Marketing for supporting and providing the activities. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as

      Hi, Timo. It was great to see a little bit more of Dresden and the surrounding area. As always, I would like to return and explore more of Saxony. πŸ™‚ Thanks for your comment!

      There is just so much to discover everywhere you go. For example in China I spent most of my time so far in Xi’an, yet there is so much I havent seen yet and still want to discover in the upcoming trips πŸ™‚

      While I’ve spent a total of six weeks in Hong Kong, I’ve not spent any time in China. But you’re definitely correct to say that there is so much more to see and do, wherever we are! πŸ™‚
