Friday, 23 August: Hechtfest 2019

Following the city’s large Stadtfest, the Hecht district – adjacent to the Neustadt’s Northwest side – welcomes the last of the three main neighbourhood festivals of the year. After this year’s editions of Sankt Pieschen and the Bunte Republik Neustadt in June, it is now the Hecht’s time to shine with their very own Hechtfest. Although this is only a matter of opinion, many consider the Hechtfest to be the best of all three, offering an array of activities and attractions in a wonderful and somewhat more spacious backdrop. This year’s highlights include Dresden’s largest brunch, open for all from 10 a.m. until noon on Sunday all around the neighbourhood, the silent disco, open on Friday and Saturday evening, on the Königsbrücker Platz, a poster auction with posters made by some of the neighbourhood’s graffiti artists, and many more. While there, do not be shy to walk into open courtyards, many of which will be hosting their own small concerts hidden from the chaos of the street. An event for people of all ages, the Hechtfest officially begins at 5 pm on Friday and extends until Sunday at 8 pm.

Opening Hours: Fri: 5 pm – Midnight, Sat: 11 am – Midnight, Sun: 10 am – 8 pm; Admission: Free; How to get there: Hechtviertel; TRAM 13 or S-BAHN S1 ‘Bischofsplatz’ stop.

Saturday, 24 August: Flamenco Concert

Flamenco is a Spanish art form made up of three parts: guitar playing, song, and dance. It originated in southern Spain but was influenced by a variety of different world cultures, including Latin American, Cuban, and Jewish traditions. Flamenco translates emotions into dance and poetry into music, only listening to the rhythm is enough to give you goose bumps, to be deeply moved all the way into your soul. This Saturday, Dresden’s “El Patio” Flamenco school would like to provide the opportunity for all to experience this wonderful art firsthand. Dancer Irene Álvarez will be joined on stage by guitarist Alexander Gavilan for an authentic performance sure to make you feel as if you were watching it in Spain!
Beginning: 8 pm; Admission: Free, donations requested; How to get there: El Patio Flamenco, Eisenbahnstr. 1, 01097 Dresden; TRAM 3 ‘Bahnhof Neustadt/Hansastr.’ Stop.

Sunday, 25 August: HC Elbflorenz vs.ThSV Eisenach

Sunday is sports day! A new season for the teams on the second tier of the German handball league begins this Sunday and our very own HC Elbflorenz needs all the support it can get from its fans to cash its first victory in the 2019/20 season. Dresden’s main handball team is back for a fresh start and there would be no better way for the Tigers to start off the tournament than with a convincing victory. As part of Germany’s second tier of professional handball the team has all 34 games ahead of it until the season comes to an end in but every victory counts on the road towards reaching one of the first two positions by the end of the tournament in order to play in the first division next year. If you have not yet had the chance to visit the relatively new BallsportArena, this is also a great chance to do so, while supporting the city’s beloved handball squad.
Beginning: 5 p.m.; Admission: 16,50 EUR Regular, 11 EUR Reduced; How to get there: BallsportArena, Weißeritzstraße 4, 01067 Dresden; TRAM 4, 6, 11 ‘Kongresszentrum’ stop.

Monday, 26 August: Palais Sommer 2019 Closing Concert

Following another very successful season, the Palais Sommer, Dresden’s nearly month-long free park festival must unfortunately come to an end. Although the festival traditionally ends with a concert on Sunday, this year organizers listened to the crowds and decided to extend the summer behind the Japanese Palace for another 24 hours, adding another yoga session at 5 pm as well as a final piano concert to mark the official end of one of Dresden’s most beloved events. Ukrainian pianist Olena Khoruzha has the honor to play this year’s final tones on the stage mounted between the two centenary trees of this wonderful garden set directly on the bank of the river Elbe. The actual program for this final concert has not been published yet at the time of writing but Khoruza is known for her heartwarming and gentle performance of classical music so even if the program comes as a surprise, you will surely be happily surprised. Be sure to check out the link below though, as chances are the exact program will be published throughout the course of the week.

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.

Tuesday, 27 August: Afterwork Party at the Saloppe

Having to work through this wonderful summer weather is, without a doubt, no easy task. If you also belong to the group which wishes they could just enjoy the sun and relax next to the river while having a good time with friends, then maybe the Saloppe’s after work party may be just what you are looking for. Entry is free until 9 pm but even if you cannot make it by then and still wish to come, the 5 euro entry required after 9 is definitely worth it for one of Dresden’s most traditional and well-known bars. This Tuesday, DJ Pauli will be on the turntables to ensure everyone has a great time and if dancing is not really for you, then you may also enjoy playing ping pong or table football. If you are the more relaxed kind of person who prefers to just sip on a beer while having a good talk, then this is also the ideal location due to its wonderful setting which is sure to put out all of your stress from work and might even give you the feeling as if you were truly on a summer holiday!

Beginning: 7 p.m.; Admission: Free until 9 pm, then 5 EUR; How to get there: Saloppe Dresden, Brockhausstraße 1, 01099 Dresden; TRAM 11 ‘Elbschlösser’ stop.

Wednesday, 28 August: Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

Can you imagine how awesome it would be if Quentin Tarantino were to make a movie starring great names such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robie, Al Pacino, and many more? Well now the wait for such a movie is over as Quentin Tarantino’s 9th movie, Once Upon a Time… In Hollywood, has arrived in Germany and yes, it stars all these amazing names on it! The movie takes place in Los Angeles in 1969, a time where everything is changing. It follows the story of Rick Dalton and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth as they make their way through an industry they hardly recognize anymore. The movie’s large ensemble cast as well as its multiple storylines serve as a tribute to the final moments of Hollywood’s golden age. For all Tarantino fans out there this is certainly one of the most awaited movies of the year and if you would like to watch it in its original version without any German dubbing, be sure to head down to the Programmkino Ost as they are screening the unaltered version for a full appreciation of this already highly rated and well-received production.

Beginning: 8.30 p.m.; Admission: 7 EUR Regular, 6 EUR Reduced; How to get there: Programmkino Ost, Schandauer Straße 63, 01277 Dresden; TRAM 4, 10 ‘Altenberger Straße’ stop.

Thursday, 29 August: Friedrichstadt’s Summer Festival

Summer still isn’t over and that is definitely a reason to celebrate! Before September ushers in the beginning of Autumn, the Friedrichstadt neighbourhood would like to throw its own party to celebrate the beautiful German Summer. Bring your reusable shopping bag because on Thursday, beginning at 5 pm inside the courtyard of Riesa efau, around 20 regional producers will present their wonderfully delicious sun-kissed products for sale. Come with the entire family for a colorful farmer’s market which not only celebrates the Summer but also supports the local producers who toil the land in the region around Dresden. Of course, other attractions will round up the program for a wonderful afternoon in Friedrischstadt.

Beginning: 5 p.m.; Admission: Free; How to get there: Courtyard of Riesa efau, Adlergasse 14, 01067 Dresden; TRAM 1, 2, 6, 10 or S-BAHN S1, S2 ‘Bahnhof Mitte’ stop.
