The City of Dresden
Dresden offers attractions in great variety and combines three aspects which complement one another: notable art treasure, architectural sights and a charming landscape. Magnificent promenades on the bank of the Elbe, interesting museums and institutions, industrial monuments, charming details. A trip to Dresden is always a great experience.
Granted, none of the seven wonders of the ancient world are to be found in Dresden. Back then, the river was probably still busy sculpting the natural features of the local sandstone. The wait was rewarded with a magnificent landscape, but in later times, the Elbe valley saw such a blossoming of architectural and artistic brilliance that the visitor today forgets to count and can only rub his eyes in wonder.
The Church of Our Lady, Royal Palace, Zwinger, Semper Opera House, Elbe castles, Villa Quarter, Hellerau garden city or the award-winning modern buildings – not forgetting the ‘Blue Wonder’ bridge to the east of the city centre. It seems the likes of Augustus the Strong and his successors were not prepared to wait for nature to finish the job; with their skill, artistry and determination, they filled the Green Vault and Turkish Chamber with treasures from all over the world, collected paintings and porcelain, and were patrons of the great composers. No wonder then that Dresden today ranks as a world-class city of art and culture.
The conference location will be the MESSE DRESDEN. The convention center of MESSE DRESDEN is a location of trade for knowledge exchange, information and get together. As a part of the exhibition center the new building has received the individual name BÖRSE DRESDEN. The name of the building reminds of its original use hundred years ago.
As from now, congresses up to a size of 10,000 participants can be realized in the future. In particular, huge and international congresses and conventions, which can be combined with fairs in the exhibition halls, take place at BÖRSE DRESDEN.
