The Dresden State Art Collections consist of eleven museums and a library, one of the most important museums worldwide. With its heritage (the Frauenkirche was rebuilt in 2005), the Saxon capital is one of Germany’s must-see cultural destinations. Another major tourist asset for the city, its key-situation on the path of cruise ships along the Elbe River. Dresden does not only appeal to leisure travelers, it also benefits from significant economic activity. Among companies in the agglomeration are Airbus Group, GlobalFoundries, GSK, Infineon Technologies, Siemens, The Linde Group, and Volkswagen. Also a major university city – with more than 36,000 students for the Technische Universität Dresden only – the destination and its hoteliers benefit from a dynamic events calendar year-round.
