Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Dresden?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Dresden. Economy or compact cars are great for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a mid-size vehicle or SUV will have more room and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a dash of extravagance on their Dresden vacation can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Germany?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car from Sixt in Germany. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions.

Do I have to return my Sixt rental with a full tank?
We recommend a full to full policy. You should get your car with a full tank. However, if you return the rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Sixt. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Dresden certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
