Dresden has unusually many sights for a city of around 500 000 inhabitants: Fürstenzug, the Semperoper, the Hofkirche, Zwinger, Frauenkirche, and the Figure representing Kindness. Closely after World War II Richard Peter took one of the most famous pictures of the war, when he got up in the tower of the city council and shot the picture of the figure Güte. See the famous picture here. Later that evening we went to the castle of Moritzburg. We had nowhere to stay for the night, and we wanted to try a top hotel, so we chose Hotel Mercure in Meissen.
