If you are visiting Dresden between now and 11th March do not forget to visit the Great Garden or Großer Garten to see a magnificent profusion of flowers in the former baroque palace. It is a display and curated with light and sculpture. It takes place only every two years so do not miss it! Spectacular!
We've not had much snow in Dresden this winter. But today it slowly dusts itself down from the skies onto the cobblestones and slanting roofs. It's a beautiful sight and makes Dresden's historic buildings even more dramatic. This picture is from an unusual spot where most tourists don't get to. Gentle slopes merge into the remnants of the historical moat. In summer birds swim in the calm water and there is a spot under the tree with the drooping branches that suggests a picnic for one.
The year started by being warmer than usual but the cold has finally arrived in this part of the world finally. As the days grow longer the thought of the coming season is more frequently in my thoughts. I look forward to the spring and summer and to all the guests that will visit us this year.
This is also time to take stock of what needs to be renewed and this is part of that process. Though my website has existed for a year, I did not have a blog associated with it. It is time for a change!
Let me begin with a picture of Dresden for the moment. This is the Frauenkirche or The Church of Our Lady, in the heart of Dresden's city centre.
The picture was taken by Arjun Kartha, a travel blogger and influencer who was in Dresden some time ago.
I hope you will look through all the guided walk options I offer and write to me to book one. If you do not see something you want, write to me and we can work it out!
