DESTINATIONS germany dresden Shopping MEISSEN


If you always had a soft spot for porcelain, MEISSEN is the place to go. The shop is filled with porcelain tableware, art work, and figurines. It's a feast for the eyes, and most definitely worth a visit.


As a shopping destination, Dresden is a great choice, with shopping facilities as rich and varied as the city itself. Head to Prager Strasse, which runs eastward into Ferdinandshof and northward into Seestrasse for department stores and international fashion chains. This cosmopolitan boulevard is famous for its architecture, fountains and colourful gardens behind the small hotels. There is also Prisco Passage, a new and chic Italian Piazza filled with shops and offerings for those interested in gourmet cooking. A visit to the Neustader Markthalle, one of Germany’s finest market halls, is a must. It showcases the best of the region's produce, speciality foods, wines and spirits.
