    Cheese Store

    by el_ruso Written Nov 30, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There is a very nice dairy/ cheese story in the Neustadt area on the other side of the river. I don't remember the exact name, but it starts with a Pfu- or Pfi-. If you ask at the tourist information, they will be able to direct you.

    There is a great number of different dairy and cheese products.

    Various / newsagents / stalls: The History...

    Dresden in 1945

    The grim history of Dresden during the second world war is still a painful memory on both sides. The bombardment by the RAF is considered to be a war crime by many, the fireball may have killed up to 130,000 people in one night.

    It was thus equilvalent to the dropping of a Nuclear bomb.

    Whatever the rights and wrongs of that particular raid, the destruction of the once beautiful city is vividly recalled in before-and-after collections of postcards sold in many place around the city.

    I use a pack to help schoolchildren consider the morality of war.

    It is also perhaps useful to think about these words of Winston Churchill, who in the final analysis was responsible for the operation to obliterate the city :

    It is odious to us
    that governments should seek to maintain their rule
    otherwise than by free unfettered elections
    by the mass of the people.

    Governments derive their just powers
    from the consent of the governed,
    says the Constitution of the United States.

    This must not evaporate in swindles and lies propped up by servitude and murder.

    Fleamarket in Dresden

    If you like fleamarkets, there are always some fleamarkets on the weekends!

    What to buy: Just about everything that is old to antique. We found wonderful kitchen utensils, saw some keys and locks, books, games, well, everything a fleamarket can offer!

    What to pay: Make sure to bargain, but be prepared that prices are still pretty high!!!

    Its Just A Marketplace: Some of Anything You Might Want

    by grishaV1 Written Jan 25, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Its what we call a flea market in the US, where you can find all kinds of things from antiques to childrens toys, clothes, CDs, books, glassware, and even get some hot food to eat from one of the booths.

    What to buy: Buy whatever you want but remember if you dont have a car nearby and you get something heavy like this huge warddrobe my friend wanted to buy you have to figure out how to get it back to where you live. Such stuff dont fit very well on the tram either :-)

    What to pay: Well dont pay more than you have to for anything, check it over carefully to see if its worth to pay what they ask. Dont be afraid to barter or bargain whatever its called, go for a lower price if you can.

    Fleamarket trophies

    Fleamarket trophies

    As I mentioned in the intro, I was lucky to visit Dresden in time for the Elbwiesen fleamarket. We did find some wonderful kitchen utensils that we had not seen in other fleamarkets further west....

    What to pay: We had expected prices to be quite a bit lower (as the cost of living in the eastern part of Germany would have let us thinks so), but we were quite surprised at the rather high level of prices....

    Still we got some great bargains!

    Saxonian Wine

    delicious Saxonian Riesling

    What to buy: I never did find out about the delicious wine they make in Saxony until VT friend Leipzig brought some as a present. VERY delicious white Riesling wine - definitely worth taking home!!!

    Thinking about it, I remember seeing vinyards on the trip from Dresden to Meissen... but anyway:

    now I know: that white wine is very delicious!
