Where I stayed
We also went to the transport museum, where we saw an exhibition about the bombing in Dresden and Coventry during WWII. This too was interesting. The entire city of Dresden was levelled. I can't imagine what it would be like to live through something like that.
The Frauenkirche (Church of Our Lady) is a beautiful church in the middle of Neustadt Market Square.
The Zwinger Palace was undergoing renovations and the gardens would make the Palace a beautiful place to visit in spring. Nearby we saw a mural on the wall that is made entirely of tiles. It depicts all the Princes of Saxony over time and is 102m long.
I also bought my first pair of shoes!!!
For lunch we dined at one of the many Currywurst places that are scattered all over the city. You get a chopped up frankfurt that is drowned in tomato sauce with curry powder sprinkled over the top. Added to this is a serve of chips drowned in mayonnaise. It was a disgusting as it sounds. We must of looked like idiots too as we ate it. At that particular time the snow was driving sideways and from the window where we bought the delicacy there are a few huts where you can stand to eat! There we are standing in the driving snow, eating our lunch when we turned around and saw that you can sit inside in the warmth!
