Dresden shopping offers a variety of buying opportunities for its visitors. Many shopping streets are combined with the picturesque locales that one comes to expect from the beautiful country of Germany.
Prager Straße is probably the most famous Dresden shopping street. From the wonderful array of shopping opportunities to the sculptured beauty of the architecture and gardens, there is something for everyone here on Prager Straße.
Lovers of haute couteur will delight in the fashion boutiques that spot the street. Lovers of aesthetics will appreciate the multitude of architectural styles and the famous fountains (known as Springbrunnen).
Another popular stop for Dresden shopping is the Wilsdruffer Straße. You’ll find it between two other famed shopping districts, the Altmarkt and palace district of Schlossviertel.
If you want high-end, high-quality (and sometimes high-priced!) goods, then this is where you’ll want to be.
Königstraße is well-known by the local Dresdeners as a place of fine tastes and luxury. This Baroque-styled district gives your shopping outing a touch of refined elegance. Come here especially if you are interested in purchasing something from its many art galleries.
If your wallet is a bit light, you can still enjoy the area with some window shopping and a stroll through the picturesque courtyards.
This pretty little shopping street of Hauptstraße is right in the middle of Dresden’s tourist attractions. You can wander down the street, window-shopping and catch a glimpse of a spire from the Old Town just across the way. There are also many festivals and outdoor markets that take place here during the year.
So take a walk down here and you never know what you might find. ;-)
The Dresden shopping destination of Altmarkt also has something for everyone. The “historical” side offers smaller, more unique shops that were reconstructed in their original appearance after the devastating firebombing of the city in the Second World War.
However, Dresden is also looking toward the future with its modern Altmarkt Galerie, which features the most popular European chains and boutiques.
