Dresden, Germany

Happy New Year! I hope you had a great holiday break and are right back at it now.  I have no excuse, except laziness about not blogging, but I’m committed to getting back into it for 2018.

So, I’m going to finish up with my trip to Eastern Europe from the fall for my next few posts and then start back on giving you some lifestyle and design inspiration. I’m planning some rebranding and refocusing this year, so bear with me while things get cleaned and spruced up just in time for Spring.

After leaving Berlin and on our way to Prague, we were up early and stopped for a few hours in Dresden, Germany.  It has, of course, a castle, this one called Dresden Castle, but more amazing to me and most tourists, was this huge mural (done in porcelain tiles) of the Procession of Princes. It was first painted in 1871-1876 and then when it was deteriorating they redid it, in these porcelain tiles (1904-1907).

There is also a huge church, Frauenruche (Church of our Lady) and the beautiful Zwinger Palace and Fountain. Parts of the fountain were unfortunately under repair, but we did manage to see this portion and get an idea of how stunning it was.

All is all, Germany and especially, Berlin enchanted me and I’d definitely return, in a heartbeat.
