Friday, 16 August: Canaletto – Dresden’s City Festival

This Friday, Dresden welcomes all of its residents and visitors for the opening of the 21st edition of its city festival, named after the Italian artist Canaletto. Bernardo Bellotto, known in Germany and Poland by the nickname of his uncle, Canaletto, lived in Dresden from 1747 to 1758, following an invitation from King August III of Poland. During his stay in the Saxon capital, Canaletto painted numerous scenes of Dresden, thereby immortalizing the beauty of this baroque city as it was prior to its destruction at the end of the Second World War. In the same way as Canaletto’s paintings were a homage to the city’s breath-taking beauty, Dresden’s city festival is a celebration of Dresden as well as the wonderful residents who live here and make this such a great place to live in. For three days, beginning on Friday evening and ending on Sunday, Dresden’s old town transforms itself into Germany’s largest city festival with food stands and stages popping up on every corner. Organizers hope to repeat last year’s positive experience and to welcome over half a million guests into Dresden’s wonderful Altstadt. Due to construction works on the Augustus Bridge, this year’s festival will be restricted only to the old town side of the Elbe, making it rather more compact but still as fun as it always has been. Be sure to come out with your friends this weekend and enjoy the music, the rides, as well as the crowd!

Beginning: Official opening at 7 p.m.; Admission: Free; How to get there: Dresden Altstadt, reachable with all trams except the 6 and 13 to inner-city stations such as Pirnaischer Platz, Postplatz, Prager Str., or Altmarkt.

Saturday, 17 August: Salsa Summer Night

Summer, sun, and salsa – all three seem to belong perfectly together and this Saturday as the sun sets you will have the chance to enjoy an unforgettable concert with traditional Cuban music followed by what will probably be the year’s largest salsa party. As part of the palace summer festival, right between the Elbe and Dresden’s Japanese palace, Presion Cubana plans to transform this normally tranquil garden into a huge open air Cuban party! The evening will begin with warm summer rhythms of salsa, merengue, bolero, cha cha cha, and other Latin beats which will certainly make you feel as if you were truly in Havana. Following the concert, it is time for DJ Miky Bro to take over and to make sure everyone keeps on dancing until late hours. Invite all of your friends, refresh your salsa moves and come out to the garden behind the Japanese Palace for a warm and fun salsa summer night.

Beginning: 8 pm; Admission: Free, suggested donation: 10 EUR; How to get there: Garden behind the Japanisches Palais, Palaisplatz 1, 01097 Dresden; TRAM 9 ‘Palaisplatz’ stop.

Sunday, 18 August: Free Entry to the Albertinum Museum

On the East end of Dresden’s beautiful Brühl Terrace lies an imposing building which holds some of our city’s most important works of art. The Albertinum, or the New Master’s Gallery, was initially born as an extension to the Old Master’s Gallery and is home to works from the 19th century until today. Among the around 300 works on display, here you will find names such as Otto Dix, Vincent Van Gogh and Claude Monet. It is considered to be one of the world’s most important museums when it comes to German Romanticism and Realism and also hosts quite a respectable collection of sculptures. The best part of this all is that this wonderful museum may be visited for free from 3 pm on every third Sunday of the month. If you’re interested in art and haven’t yet checked out the Albertinum, be sure to do so this Sunday!

Beginning: 3 pm; Admission: Free; How to get there: Albertinum Dresden, Georg-Treu-Platz, 01067 Dresden; TRAM 1,2,4,12 ‘Altmarkt’ stop or TRAM 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 12 ‘Pirnaischer Platz’ stop.

Recall the best of your teenage years and enjoy a fun-filled evening with friends while getting to know new people. This is a great opportunity to invite your colleagues for something that will certainly be fun for all and different from the regular evening out for dinner or a few drinks. If you happen to enjoy your evening so much and would like to have even more table football and table tennis fun, do not worry as this is a recurring event, just come back on any Monday!

Beginning: 6 p.m.; Admission: Free; How to get there: GrooveStation, Katharinenstraße 11-13, 01099 Dresden; TRAM 7,8 ‘Louisenstraße’ stop.

Tuesday, 20 August: Yesterday

Yesterday is a 2019 British romantic comedy and although it has been on show for quite a while, you may still get the chance to watch it this Tuesday in its original version at the Thalia cinema in the Neustadt. The movie tells about Jack Malik, who is a struggling singer-songwriter in an English seaside town whose dreams of fame are rapidly fading, despite the fierce devotion and support of his childhood best friend, Ellie. After a freak bus accident during a mysterious global blackout, Jack wakes up to discover that The Beatles have never existed. Performing songs by the greatest band in history to a world that has never heard them, Jack becomes on overnight sensation with a little help from his agent.

Beginning: 6 pm; Admission: 6 EUR; How to get there: Thalia Cinema, Görlitzer Str. 6, 01099 Dresden; TRAM 13 ‘Görlitzer Str./Nordbad’ stop.

Heads up for one of the Palaissommer’s most moving event, the choir night. Similar to last year, the Dresden Jazzchor (Jazz Choir) as well as the Kneipenchor (Pub Choir) will take the spotlight on the stage and will be joined by the vocal band Octopus Project as well as the independent choir Chortissimo. What makes the choir night so special is the fact that these choirs and bands all represent an array of different musical styles, all of which may be achieved using only the human voice as an instrument and all of which may be experienced first hand this Wednesday!

Beginning: 7 pm.; Admission: Free, suggested donation: 10 EUR; How to get there: Garden behind the Japanisches Palais, Palaisplatz 1, 01097 Dresden; TRAM 9 ‘Palaisplatz’ stop.

Thursday, 22 August: Afterwork Party

It is finally Thursday, but all that crosses your mind is how long until the next weekend arrives? So as to help you let go from the daily work stress and in preparation for the weekend, the Carolaschlöschen restaurant in Dresden’s Großer Garten organizes weekly after-work parties on Thursday evenings. Entrance is just 5 euro for those arriving after 7 p.m. and 7 euro after 9 p.m. but the party does go on until 1 in the morning. With the wonderful view over the small Carola lake in Dresden’s largest city park, the location offers the perfect opportunity to let go from the daily routine, even if for just a few hours. So why not put on your party clothes and dancing shoes right after calling it a day this Thursday and heading down to the Carolaschlösschen? Hopefully, getting up to work on Friday will still be manageable but at least then you’ll be only one day’s work away from the real weekend!

Beginning: 7 p.m.; Admission: 5 EUR until 9 p.m., then 7 EUR; How to get there: Carolaschlösschen, Querallee 7, 01219 Dresden; TRAM 9, 13 or BUS 75 ‘Querallee’ stop.
