Updated: 9 February 2017
One of Germany’s top destinations when it comes to historical fairy tale settings and idyllic natural landscapes, it’s sometimes hard to believe that Dresden was virtually entirely rebuilt after the Second World War. The town also boasts some seriously historic and cultural hotels that offer the perfect place to stay on your visit.

Castle Eckberg

Castle Eckberg is a stunning hotel in an idyllic setting with flawless services. The neo-gothic castle is surrounded by a spectacular 15 hectares of garden landscape, where the Elba can be seen flowing through the valleys and trees. The 77 rooms in the castle are fully equipped with all mod cons and offer exclusive services like a generous breakfast buffet, salon access and conference rooms upon request.

The Westin Bellevue

Boasting picturesque views from its baroque-style windows, the Westin Bellevue is located in the inner Neustadt of Dresden, across from the Catholic Church and with a spectacular panorama over the entire Elbe Valley and the historical city itself. The hotel is famous for the Caneletto View painting of the 18th century, completed by artist Bernardo Belotto.

Taschenbergpalais Kempinski

The Grand Taschenbergpalais Kempinski comes with a controversial royal background: back in the 18th century, King Augustus the Strong commissioned this spectacular building as a gift to his mistress Constantia von Cosel. The royal mansion got destroyed in the Second World War however, while a meticulous reconstruction has allowed the 182-room hotel to flourish again today. Internationally acclaimed as one of Germany’s top hotels, the Taschenbergpalais has hosted figures like Barack Obama, Wladimir Putin, Karl Lagerfeld and many more.

The building is a protected 18th century rococo and early classicism structure, and was among the few buildings still standing after the Second World War. Recently renovated, the façade and the interior garden show the spectacular finesse of the early century, while the interior is a mélange of modern, simplistic furniture that comes complete with first-class services.
