Flanked by the mirror facades of the »Kugelhaus« and »Prager Spitze«, Dresden's classic shopping mile already begins outside the main railway station. It stretches from Wiener Platz along Prager Strasse, with the adjoining Ferdinandshof precinct, on to the Altmarkt square and Wilsdruffer Strasse. Here you can find international fashion chains and the largest bookstore in Eastern Germany.
