Climate friendly travel
By train and without traffic jams comfortably to Dresden.
What do a world-famous opera house and a beer brewery have in common? Their deep roots in the enchanting city of Dresden - which can do much more than just tradition and enjoyment.
Supposedly disparate partners often get along very well. Radeberger Pilsner, for example, and the world-famous Semper Opera House, both historic sites - Radeberger's sponsorship has supported many a young artist in this opera house. The opera is by no means the only example of high culture in Dresden, which is also known as "Florence on the Elbe. The Frauenkirche, for example, was built in 1736, destroyed in the Second World War, and rebuilt in 2005 with donations from all over the world as a symbol of reconciliation. The Old Masters Picture Gallery, the Green Vault, the Armory and the Coin Cabinet in Dresden's Residence Palace. The Kunsthofpassage in Dresden's Neustadt district on the other side of the Elbe is a contrast: five once run-down backyards have been given a new lease of life here and now offer alternative stores, galleries, cafés and restaurants.
The special tip: Where electricity was once generated, young life now reigns - the tjg (theater junge generation) and the Dresden State Operetta reside in the old walls of the Dresden Mitte power plant.
Good connection by train: From Dresden's main train station, about two IC hours from Berlin, it's only about a 20-minute walk to the Semper Opera and Frauenkirche.
