Dresden Card

City view of Dresden

Explore More With The Dresden Card

Dresden has been meticulously rebuilding since the end of World War II. From the Frauenkirche church to the exceptional Royal Palace and the famous Grünes Gewölbe (Green Vault). Now you can freely set your sights on all of the renewed splendor.

Choose between a Dresden Card or the Regio Card, which includes the city plus surrounding Oberelbe region. Both provide free public transportation and discounts on mountain railways as well as the airport S-Bahn. And then there are the museums – including the monumental Staatliche Kunstsammlungen.

See the Coin Cabinet, which houses 270,000 objects tracing the history of Greco-Roman and German coinage. The Porzellansammlung (Porcelain Collection) holds over 20,000 objects from the 17th and 18th centuries against the Baroque backdrop of the Zwinger courtyard. There are sculptures, paintings, decorative arts and so much more.

Get the card, and come see a city that continues its meteoric rise.
