4 Beautiful Sites to Visit Near Dresden, Germany
This post was updated February 15th, 2020.
Dresden lies within the state of Saxony and is the capital city with a population just above half a million. While the city itself offers a charming visit, no trip to Dresden can be considered complete without taking advantage of some of the best days trips outside the city. Easily accessible by train, there’s plenty to see from luxury watch museums to castles to national parks. There’s as much to do and see outside of Dresden as there is to do in it.
Celebrating the Holiday Spirit in Basel, Switzerland
Located right at the intersections of France, Germany, and Switzerland, Basel is a fairly easy visit on European travels. Plus, it’s not as expensive as its other costly Swiss counterparts like Zürich and Geneva. However, seeing this third most populated city in Switzerland in the summertime is a much more appealing thought as far as I’m concerned. As we walked along the Rhine River, I shivered from the cold breeze while trying to imagine the city in warmer weather. Our tour guide was telling us how people really take advantage of the water in the summer, relaxing along the banks and dipping into the Rhine. Looking at the river now in the cold month of December there was hardly any activity, but it provided a calm and beautiful view of the city, waiting until the weather warms up to be used as more than a backdrop once again.
