This hotel is located in the government quarter of this metropolis and offers quick access to the best attractions of Dresden. The capital of Saxony, Dresden is also 170 kilometres southeast of Berlin and 100 kilometres east of Leipzig. Once called the Florence of the North, the city was all but destroyed by Allied aerial bombing at the end of World War II. Today, the city is a cultural and scientific haven, featuring the Zwinger, the Semper Opera House and the Royal Palace. In October 2005, the steeple of the Dresdner Frauenkirche was rebuilt to once again overlook the city’s Baroque skyline.
