Grab the kids and enjoy some quality time together at Nordbad Dresden and Geibeltbad Pirna. Dresden Funicular Railway and Theater in der Fabrik are also worth a visit if you want to keep the good times coming.

Your kids could spend endless hours zipping around and gawking at the local and exotic creatures at Dresden Zoo and Wildgehege Moritzburg.

Whether you're a wine enthusiast or just enjoy the occasional glass, look into spending the day at Castle Wackerbarth or Hofloessnitz Vineyard Museum. There's nothing like opening a bottle of the latest vintage to mark a vacation. Cheers!

Spend a few hours enjoying the plant species at Dresden Botanical Garden and Herzogin Garten.

When it's time for a break, grab a bite to eat and make your way over to one of the area's leafy green spaces, such as Grosser Garten and Rose Garden. There's also plenty of space to laze about at Pillnitz Castle and Park and Luckner Park.

Cast your gaze out over the still water, do a bit of bird-watching and check for water-based activities at Loessnitzbad and Lake Birkwitz.

On a pleasant day, Citybeach Dresden is the ideal place to taste the fresh ocean air, enjoy long walks and splash in the water.

The area's exhibition spaces are brimming with educational facts and stories. Albertinum and Old Masters Picture Gallery offer a range of displays and collections that are sure to capture your interest. You might also want to consider a visit to Green Vault and Karl May Museum.

The science museums here are perfect for both science nerds and tourists who want something interesting to do. Begin your day of discovery at Dresden Museum of Technology and Industry, and then press on at Adolph Diesterweg Observatory or Royal Cabinet of Mathematical and Physical Instruments.

The preserved specimens at Landesmuseum für Vorgeschichte give fascinating insight into exotic worlds.

Want to check out some art? You'll find galleries of all kinds here. Pop in to Dresden State Art Collections and Leonhardi-Museum to see the best of what this creative enclave has to offer. New Masters Gallery and Museum of Decorative Arts are also worth a browse if you can fit them in before dinner.

Go back in time and unveil stories of the past at DDR Museum or Bundeswehr Military History Museum. Like the sound of those? There's even more to be seen at City Museum Meissen and Dresden City Museum.

To find out more about the area's rich and colorful past, plan to visit its many remaining historical sites. Start your history lesson at Japanese Palace and Moritzburg Castle. When it comes to bygone times, the stories are countless. Dresden Cathedral and Albrechtsburg Castle are two more great places to stop by.

The proud history of civil engineering can be seen in Blue Wonder Bridge or Augustus Bridge, two grand old structures that cross the area's waterways.

When it came to designing Zwinger Palace and Heidenschanze, you'll see that money must not have been an issue. Lingner Palace and Dresden Royal Palace are two more magnificent dwellings that have their share of history hidden in the walls.

After spending an afternoon at Dresden Castle or Castle Eckberg, you may just feel like you're back in the days of drawbridges and dungeons! Sonnenstein Castle and Nothnitz Castle are two more impressive architectural monuments.

Experience the region's spiritual side and take in the serene atmosphere at Church of Our Lady and Epiphany Church. Church of the Holy Cross and New Synagogue are also interesting religious sites.

Before you pack up your suitcase and head off home, make sure you see some of the lesser-known attractions here. Saxon State Library and Procession of Princes are certainly worth a look. Also, think about checking out Meissen Porcelain Factory and Kunsthof-Passage if your schedule allows.

Pre-booking a comfortable place to stay contributes to optimal relaxation. Check out some of the finest lodging deals in Dresden through Expedia's up-to-date lodging guide.

Visitors with a taste for life's finer things can choose from the Vienna House QF Dresden, at Neumarkt 1, and the Relais & Châteaux Hotel Bülow Palais, at Koenigstr. 14.
