Geocaching Tour in der Dresdner Neustadt


Wenn Ihr Lust habt, die Dresdner Neustadt abseits der touristischen Pfade zu erkunden, dann schaut mal bei Schatzsuche-Dresden vorbei.

Das Team bietet 2 neue Geocaching-Touren durch die Neustadt und entlang der Elbwiesen für Solospieler, 2er Teams & kleinere Gruppen an.

Dabei geht es mit modernster GPS-Navigationstechnik und weiteren kleinen Hilfsmitteln auf die Suche nach verborgenen Hinweisen und geheimen Zahlen. Dabei löst ihr knifflige Aufgaben, die Euch bei geschickter Kombination letztendlich zu einem kleinen Schatz führen.

Ihr bekommt zu Anfang eine kleine Einweisung in die Technik und habt anschließend ca 2,5h Zeit um zur Rätsel’s Lösung zu gelangen.

Das kleine Abenteuer bestreitet Ihr dabei alleine. Solltet Ihr einmal in der Klemme stecken, hilft Euch das Team aber gerne weiter.

Folgende Preise für die Neustadt-Tour:

– „Einzelkämpfer“ (1 Person): 39,- Euro incl. MwSt
– „2+1“ (bis zu 3 Personen): 59,- Euro incl. MwSt
– „Teamplay“ (bis zu 6 Personen): 99,- Euro incl. MwSt
Wer ein Smartphone sein Eigen nennt, kann auch an der Altstadtrallye teilnehmen.

Hierbei lernt Ihr in 2,5h die Sehenswürdigkeiten  von Augusts’ Residenzstadt, sowie einige historische Hintergrundinformationen kennen und begebt euch dazu auf die Suche nach versteckten QR-Codes.

Voraussetzung ist ein Smartphone mit Internetverbindung und einer App für QR-Scanning (wobei euch das Team bei der Einrichtung hier gerne hilft).

Folgende Preise für die QR-Code-Tour:

– „Einzelkämpfer“ (1 Person): 49,- Euro incl. MwSt
– „2+1“ (bis zu 3 Personen): 79,- Euro incl. MwSt

Festival: Hechtfest – or the little sister of the BRN

You could translate Hechtfest with pike festival – but no, it’s not about eating pikes and who’s gonna catch the biggest fish from the Elbe. Hechtfest is simply a festival of a district in Dresden called Hechtviertel, which is only a 10-minute-walk away from our hostel, along the Hechtstraße, Rudolf- Leonard Straße and St Pauli Church,…. So instead of eating good smoked fish it is about music, arts, drinking beer, meeting people and having fun. Some people claim the Hechtfest to be the new BRN-festival (we have posted about it earlier this year) only a little smaller.

Anyways, the festival is taking place from August 23rd to August 25th in the Hechtviertel area. So come visit, get some funky souvenir at the little fleamarkets organised by families living in this area, join some concerts, see some art, take part in a football match, or visit the dog race. And the best ting about it: it’s all for free!

You can find more information and the whole programme on the website:
Unfortunately it’s all in German, but I’m sure you can click your way through it ;)

HechtFest (english)

It’s summer and it’s time to celebrate in the streets of Dresden together with friends, neighbors, strangers…!!!

From August 24th to August 26th a quarter called “Hechtviertel” will open its doors and everyone is invited to join the colorful , cheerful event that is going on! There will be four stages where you can listen and dance to Folk, Independent, Reggae and Ska. You can also see lots of artists in the streets or try some home-baked cake in one of the backyards. One of the highlights is the bobbycar-race on Saturday morning or the big breakfast in the streets on Sunday.

The “Hechtviertel” is in the north of Dresden just next to the “Neustadt”. From “Lollis Homestay” you will get there after only ten minutes walk!

a love letter to the Neustadt area

I found this very nice post in a blog of an American teacher who has lived in Dresden now for a couple of years.  It sounds like a love letter to our area, the Neustadt neighborhood.  But read on on your own:

A little rant, because I love where I live

I am so sick of people wrinkling their noses about Dresden-Neustadt, where I live, and telling me how awful the Neustadt is. It’s loud, it’s smelly, there are punks and dog shit everywhere. Yeah, yeah, tell me something I didn’t know. Despite all that, I will let you know how I really feel. To exploit my good old American love of the superlative: it’s the greatest place in the world.

It is loud here if you are on one of the main streets, sure there’s traffic, and often there are people out, talking or grilling or getting together in their garden or living room or in the park. Or right now, they are screaming because of whatever is happening with the soccer game on TV. So if you like your peace and quiet, either go home and leave my neighborhood alone or find a quiet place here, of which there are TONS. But I won’t tell you where because you don’t care anyway.

It can be smelly, especially in the summer from the grilling (which is a matter of taste if you like that or not) the dog pee and poo all around (which annoys me too) and maybe because of some smelly people. But come on, where don’t you have those three elements? Jesus, where I come from we have super smelly Amish people, especially on Fridays in the summer, because they only bathe on Saturdays. I’ll tell you what, they smell worse than the punks or the squatters here who don’t bathe at all.

And on to the punks. Sure, there are punks around. But if you are polite to them and don’t treat them like a total jerk, they will leave you alone too. They used to ask me for change before I had any kids, and I always said that I didn’t have any. I did this in a nice way, looked them in the eye, and smiled. Do you know what? They always wished me a nice day. Honestly, not sarcastically. Once I was noticeably pregnant with W., and still lived between two of major punk begging areas, they stopped asking me for money. Since I have had kids and am on the go with my kids most of the time now, they always leave me alone, clear the way if I’m pushing a stroller and are genuinely respectful. Sure, I don’t like their dogs, since they are ratty and unpredictable, but have never been bothered or threatened by their dogs, either. It’s probably more my own dislike of dogs that gets me riled up in that respect. Honestly, I find the punks to be nicer than a lot of the other people out there on the streets. Small town dork that I am, I find it super cool to live somewhere where there are punks on the street. And a rather affluent American former colleague of mine put it this way, “I like living somewhere where my son can see that there are lots of different people around, and that the punks are not dangerous or scary”.

And there’s the dog shit, and honestly, nobody likes that. But there are more and more responsible dog owners who take a baggie with them and remove their poo. But there are still lots of jerks who don’t.

Then there are all the good things about this neighborhood: the beautiful architecture, the interesting and friendly people, all the kids (I’ve heard we have the highest birth rate in Dresden, if not in Germany, but can’t back that up with any numbers), the openness, the proximity to everything you need or could possibly desire as well as the possibility to get out of the city pretty quickly if you want. I’m sick of hearing how “antisocial” it is around here. I know of lots of other places in Dresden where you can go and see a much worse crowd hanging around the supermarkets, and I’m not talking about Prohlis or Gorbitz. Anyway, I guess what it really comes down to is that I really like this place where I live, I like going out the door and just about every time seeing someone I know, not having to drive to go shopping or to get anywhere at all, it’s a neat and dynamic place with so many playgrounds, petting zoos, and kid-friendly cafes that we really can never complain of boredom or running out of things to do. It’s a place that breeds and attracts people who are square pegs who don’t fit into round holes, and that’s just fine here. So enough of my long-windedness. I hate to carry on debates about such matters of personal taste, and even though I may be too polite to say it to your face, the next time you insult my neighborhood, do want to know what I am thinking while you barrage me with insults about my choice of a place to live? Stick it where the sun don’t shine, baby.
