Dresden Frauenkirche raised from ruins
All roads in Dresden seem to lead to this church, which was rebuilt after being completely destroyed in WW 2. It is a great monument to human resiliance. The pedestrian zones around the church invite you to linger in their many restaurants, which have outside seating for people watching, or shops. You can also take a horse carriage to see even more of this amazing city. There is a nice Hilton a stone throw away from the church. If you are lucky, you catch some opera-worthy performers singing or playing an instrument.
