My first day in Dresden

My name is Hetty and I’m a 15 year old student staying In Dresden to gain experience at traveling alone. I come from England and have had a very warm welcome and met lovely people at Lollis Homestay. I will keep you up to date with all the cool stuff I’m going to experience during my stay. 🙂 So let’s start …

Today I explored the delights of Dresden Altstadt:

      I took a tram from the Neustadt to the Altstadt, where I then walked to Theaterplatz, where all the beautiful buildings are located…

The first building I saw is the Semperoper. The beauty from the outside was outstanding, never-mind the inside: the Semperoper not only has regular performances, it also has enrapturing tours open to the public. 

Afterwards, I wondered around enjoying a hot chocolate and the pretty sights. One place I went was the Zwinger– I would love to go back in the summer and see the fountains going!! The gardens were lovely and free for the public to experience. The Sculpture Collection presents selected master pieces at the Old Masters Picture Gallery at the moment.

Although I intended to enjoy the history of the Altstadt architecture, I somehow ended up in a shopping center– haha, yay! I stopped at a delicious Greek cafe and got some souvlaki!! I hadn’t had souvlaki in ages, and it didn’t disappoint – yummy!

Finally, I visited the Frauenkirche: I’d wanted to visit it for ages because I studied the architect at school. The Frauenkirche offers tours to the dome and services weekly: i chose to “accend to the dome”. The view from the dome was stunning! A picture doesn’t do it justice.
