BRN Festival 16. to 18. June 2017

The Bunte Republik Neustadt, short BRN (which is the biggest event for most of the Dresdeners of the year in town. It is also the biggest neighbour festival in the country) exists already since 1990.


the official BRN flag, Mickey Mouse symbolised freedom back in the 90’s for us Dresdeners

Short after the reunion of West and East Germany, the atmosphere was split: most of the young people were afraid of the new capitalistic system, they were unoriented. And so some guys came to the idea to organise a new republic, an area, which they bordered with white colour on the streets: the „Äussere Neustadt quarter“ with an autonomic character. They established a new currency: the BRN Mark (which you can still buy as souvenir at the „Geldschneider“ on „Alaunstrasse 29“ … Jäkel, the owner is one of 20 existing coin-cutters in whole of Germany) and they elected a monarch and ministers as well.

Since then it is tradition to celebrate the foundation of the BRN every year with a big festival: self made food, rave- balconies, stages with a lot of different bands, samba drum sessions, DJ´s and partys on the streets, readings, theatre,… all made by locals and their children.

Aluna stage in „Alaunpark“


The festival became quite capitalistic and touristy over the last years, so if you decide to visit us and our beautiful neighbourhood, you should really watch out for the smaller streets, avoid the big beer stands and buy food and drinks at the (better) local stands and please: chill, enjoy and respect the locals and our neighbourhood!

„Paul van der Braach“, everybody knows everybody in the Neustadt: „Hello Paul!!“ 😀









House on Louisenstrasse corner Martin- Luther Strasse: the locals who live there are decorating all their balconies with a different theme every year: 2 years ago: „Computer- Robot House“




starts: on 16. June from around 4pm

ends: on 18. June until around 8pm

no parties and music between 1am and 1pm

entrance: completely free, all events

where: the whole „Äussere Neustadt“ quarter

special: closed for all cars

Lollis favourite Outdoor Baths

Nostalgic feeling, it is like one of the GDR baths 25 years ago, surrounded by the old village Mockritz.

Since the city of Dresden in situated in the Elbe River valley, you have to leave the valley first to get to the next situated lakes for swimming. That takes a little time, but once you reach the uplands you will be rewarded with a beautiful landscape and very attractive lakes for your chill out day! Here are my recommended and favourite baths in Dresden:


small beautiful Nature Bath with Kneipp water- treading basin, biotope with fishes, lawn for sunbathing and snack bar

Pratschwitz, protected landscape, good for fishing, bathing and a vacation feeling!



huge gravel- pit in a protected landscape area with pedal boat rental, snack bars along the lake, huge lawn for sunbathing, naked bathing allowed as well, beach

get there via S- Bahn S 1 direction „Schöna“ to „ S- Bahnhof Süd Heidenau“ , from there 10 minutes walk to ferry in Heidenau next to Elbe river („F10 Birkwitz Fährstelle“), from the village „Birkwitz“ you follow the main road by walking to the village „Pratzschwitz“ (10 minutes walk) / always open/ FREE entrance / day pass for ferry and S- Bahn 8,50€- take a family ticket if you are 2 persons for 13€ / 1 hour ride and 10 minutes walk



Cossebaude Stausee is the biggest bath in the city with lots of sport activities.


huge, cool barrier lake (the biggest bath in Dresden) with lawn for sunbathing, snack bar, slide, table tennis, surf school, beach volleyball- and soccer

get there via tram No. 8 direction „Südvorstadt“ to „Postplatz“, switch to bus No. 94 to „Niederwartha“ to „An der Winkelwiesen“ (Stauseebad), (Meißner Straße 26) / opens from 9am to 7pm / price 3,50€ (2,50€ only 2 hours before closing time) and 2,30€ for the ride (single ticket) / 70 minutes ride
