Dresden was another delightful surprise on our German travels. A student town it was filled with quirky galleries, shops and amazing bars and cafes. Another great spot to cycle the city and discover the old town that was bombed completely flat in the Second World War and has now been meticulously reconstructed. I recommend staying in the ‘New Town’ as that is where all the funky bars are. Germany has so much to offer so make sure you don’t just head straight to the famous cities and discover some hidden gems as well.
