Our two couples did walk trhu the old market in Dresden and truly enjoyed the atmosphere as well as the beautiful infrastructures all around the market. There were no special activities that day but we can just imagine the magic around any of them.

A mall, just a mall. But an interesting variety of stores. I was in search of energy bars and finally found some (organic, raw, chocolate) in a basement food market. There is also a Nord See, reasonably priced European fish restaurant, on basement level.

It is about a 15 to 20 minute walk. It is flat but through the city much of it is a pedestrian area of stores including a Holiday Inn Express. An Ibis hotel is next to the Markt also.
