Good footage of the city of Dresden in Germany.
Titles read: 'THE CITY OF THE ARTS - DRESDEN'.
Dresden, Saxony (East Germany).
General views of the city of Dresden and River Elbe. Several shots of the old and new parts of the city. Nice street scenes showing the traditional and modern architecture - the latter includes a huge round ball building with hundreds of windows in it and what seems to be a small shop at the base (no details in commentary about it except for saying "modernity does sometimes run riot"!).
A policeman directs traffic in the street. Cyclists park their bicycles in racks. Shots of the Dresden opera house and its statue of William Shakespeare. Several shots of the Zwinger - a collection of museums and technical institutes with fountains outside.
