With 62 per cent of its area devoted to woods and green spaces, Dresden can be considered one of the greenest cities in Europe.
The heathlands of the »Dresdner Heide«, the largest single wooded area in the city, embrace Dresden to the north, while the Grosser Garten park spreads out extensively at the very heart of the city.
The city in the Elbe valley lies nestled in the undulating countryside between vineyards and wooded hills. The blue-green ribbon of the River Elbe winds its way through the city, lined by broad meadows. Centuries of far-sighted urban planning have ensured that Dresden can still today be perceived as an integral part of the Elbe valley landscape.
