We hope you enjoyed the first week of November, had lots of arty-moments at the “Kreativmesse”!

Tips for the weekend

The 15th International Film Festival for Human Rights and Development “MOVE IT!” will take place from 7 – 13 November.
Lots of exciting films await you there, some of them in English, as well as films, concerts, discussions, and conversations. Don’t miss the festival! It’s well worth a visit.
On Thursday there will be a grand opening with champagne and a party. Perfect to get in touch with people.

If you like soccer and would like to see the Dresden´s men´s team play, then go to “Dynamo Dresden” in the Rudolf Harbig Stadium on Friday. SV Dynamo vs SV Wehen Wiesbaden.

Enjoy the last (almost) warm days in autumn. On Saturday there is the weekly Elbflohmarkt (flea market), where you can buy lots of “Schnick-Schnack”, “Kitsch”, and just all kinds of things.

Always worth a visit: the Panometer Dresden“, where you can take a unique journey back to Dresden’s past and experience the city in a 360° panorama! Artist Yadegar Asisi’s panoramas tower is27 m high and have been an insider’s tip among exhibitions and museums in Dresden since 2006.

Tips for the upcoming week

Also nice to know: the Czech-German Cultural Days take place this week.
Here, too, there are various events such as performances, films, discussions, etc. Go there, it will be great!

Dating back 450 years, the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden are the oldest and second largest museum collections in Germany and present world-class masterpieces, e.g. the Historical Green Vault and the New Green Vault, known as the treasures of the Wettins, and the Old Masters’ Picture Gallery with Raphael’s “Sistine Madonna”.

Don’t forget: the Dresden Jazzdays are still going on! The Jazzdays are an international festival from 23 October till 24 November that has been acclaimed for first-class jazz in all its variety. For a whole month, you can enjoy Jazz whatever day you like!

Always a good view on a sunny day:  The “Brühlsche Terassen” Bruehl’s Terrace, also called the “Balcony of Europe”, for the beautiful view over the Elbe River. Right underneath and behind mighty walls lies the Dresden Fortress. Its cannon yards and casemates dating from the 16th century are a window into Dresden’s history. The Stable Yard is one of the few testimonies to the glamorous era of the Renaissance in Dresden.

And besides these great activities, there are wonderful events of the “MOVE IT!” – Festival every day this week. Enjoy!
