Walking around (what seemed like) the suburban back streets of Dresden, Germany, was merely a necessary method to reach our tour bus hop-on spot and provided little in the way of spectacular views apart from the occasional squirrel. That was until we walked down the road a little further, accidentally stumbling upon what turned out to be the Grand Garden of Dresden, complete with hugely impressive parks, a lake and the longest 'driveway' that I had ever seen.
A credit to our obviously poorly-researched visit to this wonderful city, we're certainly glad we didn't miss it.
To make sure that you don't miss out wherever you are in this history-laden continent, here are my top picks for palace gardens to stumble upon.
