The Charming Street Art of Dresden, Germany

When I first got into Dresden, I had no idea what to expect except that it was located in East Germany and Kurt Vonnegut’s book Slaughterhouse-Five takes place there.  Mostly, I’m really glad I went in not knowing what to expect because I was blown away with the street art, both the quantity and the quality of it.  I decided the charming street of Dresden, Germany needed a post all of it’s own.

    Dresden looks so whimsical! Thank you for sharing all those great photos. I visited Dresden a very long time ago, when it was still part of East Germany and I believe fun paintings on the walls were not allowed. I think it looks much prettier now.
