The Verkehrsmuseum Dresden (Traffic Museum of Dresden) is one of those cool old museums halls. The museum is located just down the street from the famous Frauenkirche (church). The church was one of the many victims of the Dresden bombings in Feb 13-15th, 1945 – almost sixty five years to the date. Seemed quite strange to be touring Dresden – because I could hardly recognize the city. Especially 65 years almost to the date! The Germans have done quite a good job rebuilding the city. Well… to be honest, there are still many building projects scattered around the city. But for the most part – the city looks brand new.

Verkehrsmuseum Dresden concentrates on the achievements of the former East Germany (aka DDR). Cars, city trams, trains, ships and air ships and aircraft – all the East’s pioneers. The museum is small, but I really like how diverse the exhibits are. They are renovating the museum at the moment, but still most of the exhibits are open to the public. Everything in the East seems to be a big building project!

Dresden is one of those must see cities. And it makes a great stop on the way to Prague or points North to say Berlin, Leipzig, ect. IF you do head off to Prauge, Dresden has a very famous Christmas Market and has some great old museums too. Not to mention a few palaces. There is also a nice museum on the midevil times with knights, weapons, rare jewels and ceramics.

Onto my photos!


First in the parkhaus, I found this little jewel to welcome me to Dresden!

I found it a bit ironic that this Trabi had Düsseldorf tags (D), instead of Dresden tags (DD).
