You don´t know what to do on new year? We help you out!
First the best spots in Dresden to watch the firework (don´t forget to take the regions typical Rotkäppchen sparkling wine with you („Sekt“, buy it in the supermarket):
- On the Schwebebahn in Loschwitz quarter, one of the finest in Dresden, high situated on the cableway station is a platform from where you get the best view over the Blue Wonder Bridge, the Elbe Valley and the Old Town. Take tram no 6 or bus no 61 till Körnerplatz or Schillerplatz, from there walk up the hill. It is maybe better to follow the crowds to get sure, you will not getting lost.
- Castle Albrechtsberg, one of my favourite places, romantic balcony, in front of you the breathtaking view and behind you the romantic castle and it´s Roman Bath fountain, here you get definitely the best view for one of Dresdens finest fireworks, and of course you will see everything else from there too. Take tram no 11 to Schloss Albrechtsberg and walk through the big gate, take the stairs down right in the garden to the balcony.
- if you want to be right in the event, you should go to the Augustusbrücke directly in the Old Town, watch the people, listen to the loud party people and be part of the happening. Walk or take tram no 8, very crowded and crazy!!
What else should you know? 10 seconds before the old year becomes the new year, we’re doing the countdown and clink glasses! Ehh, yeah we’d like do make our own fireworks, so everybody buys a lot of fire crackers and rockets for a lot of money and tries to hit the sky or the others! Beware of crazy Germans!
