The Palais Summer has started again. It is a cultural festival taking place in the park of Japanisches Palais in Dresden from August 1st to August 25th. The focus of this festival is on art connected to the awarding of the Canaletto award. But even if you say „I’ve visited the old masters gallery the whole day long – I cannot take anymore art“ you don’t need to worry. It’s not like that. There are some paintings of local artists exhibited somewhere at the side of the garden. What is much more interesting is the programme that is going on during these days. There are piano nights, audio drama nights, you can take part in some yoga courses (at various times during the day), watch movies or join some painting performances such as nude painting in the park – where else can you get this if not in Dresden?!
And what is best: all these events are for free! You can even get blankets or deck chairs there, in case it gets cold at night.
So why not spend a day or two in Dresden and visit the Palais Summer?!
