Dresden Expat Events

Specialized Economies and Beach Resorts in Dresden

As a cultural center of Germany and long-time seat of the royal family, Dresden was known as the "Jewel Box", and new arrivals will find multiple castles and stunning palaces to explore. The Saxon State Opera and Dresden State Theater stage a number of shows to keep culture lovers happy, and zoos in the city provide family days out. Dresden CityBeach recreates a beach resort on the banks of the Elbe River, with volleyball, tennis, sunbeds, and cocktail bars bringing the coast to the city.

The economy of Dresden is dynamic, thriving, and highly specialized. Major industries are part of three sectors; the pharmaceutical sector, the semiconductor industry, and the electrical engineering sector. Expats also find work as English language teachers.
