Festung Dresden (Dresden Fortess)

David and i toured the Festung Dresden; which is the old fortress entrance to Dresden. It has been built over a few times. The whole fortress is underground, with excavations of older buildings including a draw bridge.
Water marks from the major floods in the 1600's/1700's.

Lots of passage ways and rooms for storage and guards. This was the front gate to the city and needed to be defended.
Entrance to the guards quarters.
