Dresden, the Florence on the Elbe, is synonym for art and culture. The Saxon capital offers cultural treasures of European rank, world-famous art collections and also a lively music and theatre scene. Architectural jewels blend into a charming natural landscape and the rich variety of cultural activities characterizes the proud and creative atmosphere in this 800-year-old Baroque town. We encourage you to take this opportunity and benefit from an exciting meeting, an attractive social program and a chance to visit one of the most beautiful and fascinating cities in Germany at a most pleasant season of the year.
