An innovation hub, Dresden may not have the appeal of Berlin, but it is not far behind. Embracing the coworking scene, Dresden is an innovative city considering that toothpaste was first invented here by a pharmacist in 1907, also the coffee filter came into being in 1908 as a means to stop the coffee grounds from getting into the cup. It is a city of inventions when you think about it, as European porcelain was invented in Dresden about 300 years ago (you can actually visit the Meissen State Porcelain factory to learn about it), as was the famous nutcracker.
It is a city tainted by its past of massive destruction at the end of World War 11, about 30,000 people were killed during the 1945 bombing of the city. Decades of reconstruction have seen Dresden returned to its former glory and today coworkers can amble around numerous historical sites when the brain implodes and you need time out from your coworking space and tapping on your laptop. It has beautiful art museums and classic architecture to gawk at, castles and palaces such as the Elbe Palace, the Kriebstein Castle and the Albrechtsburg Castle of Meissen. Home to the famous Church of our Lady (Frauenkirche) draped in Baroque glamour, the city's skyline is awash in towers, spires and domes.
Embraced by professional freelancers and small businesses, coworking is an alternative to setting up individual offices with costly overheads, working in isolation from a home environment or being jostled in a bustling cafe. Once known as "Florence of the North", Dresden is now proclaiming itself to be "open to the world".
