Dresden - the state capital of Saxony - covers an area of about 328 square meters and counts about 541,000 inhabitants. In terms of geographical size, Dresden is Germany’s fourth-largest city after Berlin, Hamburg and Cologne. The Elbe River snakes its way through the city with a length of 30 kilometers. With 62 percent of its area covered by forest and green space, Dresden is one of the greenest cities in Europe. No less impressive are the key figures of the business and scientific city Dresden: With around 48,000 people in 1,500 companies, the city is the largest location for microelectronics in Europe. The Dresden University of Technology is one of the German universities of excellence since 2012. Ten institutions of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft make Dresden the German "Fraunhofer capital".
The name "Dresden" has a good sound in the world. For centuries, the image of the residential city and state capital alongside the river Elbe has contributed to what is regarded as beautiful and representative in Europe.
