Eurolines (coach travel) perhaps. You can leave Dresden Monday, Wednesday or Friday at 17.15 and arrive Paris 9.30 in the morning the next day. Thursdays there is a 6 a.m departure which takes you to Paris at 23.00. There are various retun options too depending on day of travel. Check www.eurolines.com which is an awful website when it comes to booking (I couldn't make a trial booking) so you might also have to call their German office: (+49) 069/7903-50.

Travel Tips for Dresden

Some Reading Tips on Dresden

by Kathrin_E

A note first: Not all of these books are (yet) available in English. So these tips will be most interesting for those of you who read German. Some are, though - I will mention the English title if I find it.

Erich Kästner: Als ich ein kleiner Junge war
English title: When I Was A Little Boy
Autobiography of one of Germany's best ever authors of children's books about his own childhood in pre-war Dresden.
For those of you who learn German as a foreign language, Kästner is comparatively easy to read, so give him a try.

Karl Ludwig Freiherr von Pöllnitz: Das galante Sachsen
English title: La Saxe Galante or, The Amorous Adventures and Intrigues of Frederick-Augustus II
Gossip from the court of August the Strong, written down by one of his courtiers. There are several modern editions of this early 18th century manuscript which gives a deep insight into life at the baroque Saxon court.

Wolfgang Berghofer: Meine Dresdner Jahre
No English translation available(?)
Autobiography of Dresden's last GDR mayor who lead the city until 1990. Life in the GDR and the Socialist party apparatus, and how someone who believed in socialism begins to see and learn about the system's flaws, mistakes and problems that lead to its breakdown, and his role in the revolution of 1989. Written from his personal point of view, other participants will interpret the happenings in a different way, but this is *i his *i truth. Interesting.

(to be continued) Uwe Tellkamp: Der Turm
No translation yet but as the author keeps winning prize after prize for this book since its publication in 2008, I'd expect one soon.

The story of a family in Dresden during the last years of the GDR. A family who lives in Weißer Hirsch, a quarter where bourgeoisie has survived, people who seek their refuge in classical music and memories of old Dresden. People who live their private lives despite the system and have no idea how dangerous their situation is. Three protagonists: the father, a doctor, the uncle, lecturer and author and in touch with the communsit aristocracy, and the adolescent son, first at school and then in the army and in jail. There is a lot of autobiographical material in it but it is a novel, not a report.

Reading the German original requires profoundest knowledge of the German language and a long breath, it contains almost 1000 pages. It is hard work, though rewarding. This book has deeply impressed me.

Loschwitz Christmas Market

by Kathrin_E

A small but fine Christmas market off the beaten path takes place in the suburb of Loschwitz next to the Blue Wonder bridge. The stalls are mosty run by artisans who have their workshops in the little houses of old Loschwitz. Hence the products on offer are unique and of good quality. Here you won't find mass production 'made in China'. The market is most atmospheric at dusk.

The market is open from the second to the fourth Advent weekend.

How to get there: Take a tram to "Schillerplatz" and then cross the Blue Wonder bridge either on foot or by bus (1 stop to "Körnerplatz").

LOSCHWITZ: Friedrich-Wieck-House

by Kathrin_E

The musician and music teacher Friedrich Wieck, father of pianist Clara Wieck and father-in-law of composer Robert Schumann, died in this house on October 6, 1873. He had been living here since 1840. The house was built around 1830.

Location: Loschwitz, Friedrich-Wieck-Straße 10 - the street has later been named after its most famous inhabitant.

Andamos hasta Theaterplatz donde cogimos el autobús. El tour tarda unos 90 minutos y visitas los principales edificios, iglesias, museos y mucho mas. Hay varias paradas donde te puedes bajar y luego subir. El billete cuesta 18 euros e incluye audioguía en tu idioma y descuentos en museos y palacios.

Dresden's Brewery Tap

by richiecdisc about Feldschlosschen Stammhaus

This is a great upmarket modern brewhouse with a wide selection of typical German food and a lively atmosphere. I had roast pork with dumplings. It looked better than it actually was but Doreen's meal was good. The real find here though is the beer and oddly enough NOT their beer! Their Pils is unremarkable and with Radeberger (makers of perhaps the best Pils in Germany)just up the road, there's not much sense in more than trying one. What this brewhouse does however is offer beers from their subsidary brewery Holsten. The most interesting of which was Duckstein, a reddish blonde ale, which was a great departure from the lagers I'd been drinking for a month.
