We are just back to our apartment in Dresden after spending a very full day in Altstadt Centre.
We started with a delightful breakfast, Dresden style, created by Clay and Tif. Our Airbnb host also provides fresh fruit and bread daily.
Once across the river, we walked to The Zwinger, the palace complex of the Saxons.
We walked around the palace garden and after securing steaming cups of hot tea, walked around the terrace on top of the palace. The bells chimed the hour and played a tune as we shuffled in and out of the many student groups touring today.
There are several markets within the town proper; one of our favorites was the Stallhof which offered more medieval booths and wares. Two Bavarian sheepskins may be coming home with us.
Cameron and Michael enjoyed the exhibit of the Gems of the Green Vault while the rest of us toured the Gemaldegalerie Alte Meister, an art museum.
When we exited the museum, it was snowing!
Another walk through the Christmas market led us to dinner and a plate of cookies to enjoy back at the apartment.
