    Adult Education Center (VHS)

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Adult Education Center (VHS)

    This building was originally a drab pre-fab Plattenbau, built in 1982. A typical building from the era of the German Democratic Republic (GDR).

    In 2001 it was empty and desolate, and they were seriously thinking of tearing it down, but instead it has been completely modernized and renovated (funded 3/4 by the European Union and 1/4 by the city of Dessau). It now contains state-of-the-art classrooms and facilities for both the Adult Education Center (VHS) and the city Music School.

    "Tag der Elbe" (Day of Elbe River), is an annual event where hundred of brave swimmer swimm across the fast flowing stream. In 2006 the Naturathlon took place at the same time (location variies each year). My company took place and formed a team. Several tasks had to be done. I was part of the dragon boat team. Unfortuntely we were not the best (was our first ride on such a boat). However, it was fun to take part.
