Dresden is a beautiful city, full of wonderful buildings, many of which have been carefully renovated after having being destroyed in the Second World War. The photo above shows the Frauenkirche in the centre of the city. The Neustadt area, where we stayed for our conference, is full of lovely little shops and cafes and lots of artists live there. This is part of the wonderful artist's courtyard in Neustadt.
Dresden also feels very green, there are lots of trees along the streets and the River Elbe that flows through the city has wide green banks with cycle paths running along them. This is not just picturesque but also restricts the damage from flooding when the river overflows.
There are several city farms in Dresden, but more about those (and about the conference of European City Farms) in the next few days.
