About Dresden

Whether you enjoy the bustling tempo and broad resources of the big city, or you prefer the charm and close connections of a smaller town, Dresden is a great place to live and work. Long renowned as an important cultural center, the city is also now a major hub for science and technology. Situated on the Elbe River, Dresden has a gorgeous skyline showcasing some of Europe's finest Baroque architecture. The 24/7 public transit system allows you to easily get anywhere you need to go, and several other great cities (like Berlin, Leipzig, and Prague) are quite accessible by train or car. You can learn more about Dresden here.
