What do I need to know about living in Dresden?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Dresden, they said:

"Before retiring in Dresden, expats should be aware of the cost of living, which is generally lower than in other German cities. Expats should also research the local healthcare system and the availability of medical services in the area. Additionally, expats should familiarize themselves with the local language, as English is not widely spoken in Dresden. It is also important to research the local culture and customs, as well as the climate and weather in Dresden. Finally, expats should consider the availability of transportation options, such as public transportation, taxis, and car rental services," explained one expat living in Dresden, Germany.
