After our successful trip to Nuremberg for football, we immediately started to consider what will be the next destination.

Dresden is the capital of Saxony and its historical center. There are a lot of amazing historical buildings like Frauenkirche, Semper Oper or Zwinger. You can find many galleries and museums there. Visitors admire the walks along the river Elbe.

When I was speaking with my brother about my German experiences, he replied that he would be interested in some major music or sport events. And the talk turned to sport. More precisely to Bundeliga.

Trip dates: September 21-22, 2013
Our next trip was inspired by question of my colleague, “Have you ever been to Motor Show”? He meant one of the biggest auto fair when alternates between Frankfurt and Paris every other year.
It was in 2013 that Motor Show took place in Frankfurt and because it was in Germany, I started to plan the trip.
Frankfurt is known as financial center with skyscrapers and I love the views from the towers and lookouts.  This is probably the reason why first of all I found the observation deck at Main Tower. The platform is at a height more than 200 m with the stunning views across the city. Read More...

The photos of the buildings inside look really great. The Wolfsburg is not close to Prague and so I decided to plan this trip for two days and to combine it with a visit of the Phaeno in Wolfburg. Phaeno is interactive science center. It is located in the interesting modern building that is designed by prominent architect Zada Hadid. Read More...
