The hidden side of Dresden.
Particularily good if you are there when the christmas market is on but if you're a history buff there is plenty to fascinate you here. The new side of Dresden is all about alternaive fashion with shops you can get lost in for hours. Don't forget to climb the tower at the Frauenkirche for the best view and its well worth getting a ferry across the river especially on a good weather day.
Insider Tip:Get your photo taken in one of the photo booths in the new side. It's an original souvenir. Watch out though you only get one chance and the four shots are in quick succession. Don't miss having an enormous Pizza for €4 in the new town either. Your Hostel will be able to direct you to the restaurant.
