Location information for Dresden

Introduction

Dresden is the capital city of the German federal state Saxony, and is nicknamed "Florence of the North". This title has its thanks to the many historic buildings in baroque style. Three quarters of the center of the city was destroyed by allied bombing in February 1945. During the communist era only a few buildings were restored, but after the fall of the Wall, a big restoration of the city was tackled. A large part of the center was restored to its former glory, although restorations are still being done. 

Population

The city has more than half a million inhabitants.

Location

Dresden lies in the southeast of the former East-Germany, not far from the border of The Czech Republic. It is built on both banks of the Elbe river. The city lies 200 kilometers south of Berlin and 150 kilometers north of the Czech capital, Prague.

Economy

Just as many other cities in the former East-Germany, Dresden has been through a difficult economic time. Today, Dresden is an important center for micro electronics. The area offers work to about 40,000 people. The pharmaceutical industry also plays a major role (there is a large branch of GlaxoSmithKline). In the communistic era mechanical and electro engineering were already strongly represented. With aid from the state, the area was modernized. Tourism is also important: the city is mainly visited by Germans, but the amount of international visitors is growing.

Airports

Dresden-Klotzsche airport lies 9 kilometers northeast of the center (still in the city limits). The airport is easily accessible by rental car: follow the A4/A13 of the Bundesstraße B97. The exit to the airport is clearly signposted.

Public transportation

Dresden has an excellently integrated public transportation system, consisting of buses, trams, and city trains. On all these forms of transport you can travel with one ticket. The most convenient is the day pass that you can buy at various points in the city. The public transportation also operates during the night, but naturally with less frequency. 

Traffic and parking

After the fall of the communism, not only buildings but also streets in Dresden were refurbished. You can easily drive around in your car in this cozy city. Also finding a parking space is no problem, except possibly on Saturdays, when many residents go downtown to do shopping. There is an automatic parking information system, which indicates where free spaces are available.

Hotels

Dresden has a good supply of accommodation in all categories, from youth hostels to five star hotels. Seeing that the city is a popular location for large conferences, it is wise to book your hotel room well in advance. Furthermore, there are many campsites and places to park a camper close to the city.

Frequently asked questions

Is EasyTerra Car Rental the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? Our rates are all-inclusive. Our reservation department will inform you in advance should additional costs apply. You can always cancel your booking free of charge if you do not agree (this must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start of the car hire period). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation?
