History Meets Christmas in Dresden

A travel blog entry by reyna.jenkyns

I purposely waited for Christmas to visit Dresden, which has one of the oldest Christmas markets in Europe (dating back to 1334). It's also a city of major historical relevance having been the residence of kings of Saxony. During WWII, bombing (and it's subsequent fires) destroyed most of the city centre and killed 25,000 civilians. As part of East …

Baroque and a Hard Place

After a three-hour train journey from Eisenhuettenstadt, pootling on a chilly evening through Lausitz via Cottbus, then onto Dresden Hbf, I arrived at Dresden Neustadt at around 7:30pm, and then wandered through the streets of the right bank to find my hostel. Louise 20 is somewhere I would recommend, purely on the basis of the generously-sized …

The original Christmas markets!

... by these amazing markets!

The main markets start with a huge candelabra that you can actually climb and take photos of the whole area from. There are row upon row upon row of little stalls and many, many of them are hand crafted decorations from the Erzgeberg which is a mining area nearby – apparently when the minerals ran out there, many people took up hand carving of amazing Christmas decorations. There are ...

... proceeded to the ruins of Frauenkirche (Church of Our Lady), a church with baroque architecture. Near to the church is the Fürstenzug, a large mural of the rulers of Saxony. The mural was etched on a long structure and the build-up of the mural made it look very impressive. After the highlights of Dresden was a coach ride all the way to the capital of Germany, Berlin.

A New City

... New Cities main street, whose patrons all look like they are passed out on opium and where the only redeeming feature is a screening of "The Big Lebowski" on infinite repeat being played off a television set that looks like it belongs in the 80s classic "back to the future". We swiftly leave the Lebowski bar and follow a crowd of people to a club called the Groove Station. At ten pm the place is dead and Paul and I are the only people jamming on the dance floor to some ...

    Clean, but a little boring.

    I stayed here during the off-season (mid-December), and so it was very quiet. I didn't think that this hostel was very good for meeting other travellers. The substantial and high quality breakfast was the best part (extra fee). internet worked well in my dorm room. The bathroom had two shower stalls and two toilet stalls. However, the shower stalls had no separate component for changing, and so that made it awkward if more than one person was there. Also, the floor became very wet. The neighbourhood seemed fun, but as I was traveling alone and didn't meet anyone, I didn't really have the opportunity to experience it.
