School trip to Dresden

Dresden‘s art collections, museums and it’s architecture are famous the world over. Zwinger, Alte Meister and Gemäldegallerie, Semperoper and the glitzy treasures of the Grüne Gewölbe. The newer part of Dresden invites you to enjoy the atmosphere in the small galleries, pubs and bars and creative shops.
