Medieval christmas market 2015


Hey guys,

this years medieval christmas market just opened it’s doors to the public located inside the stable yard! It’ll be open until the 23rd December from 11am till 9.30pm.

The stable yard used to be part of the residential castle of Dresden. It used to be the location for many horseshows. It’s one of the oldest show places in Germany you can visit.


This christmas market is kept close to the medieval theme. You’ll find no plastic, nearly no electrical light and no nonstop-christmas-carols :)

All merchants are dressed accordingly and are working with typical tools and materials. So you’ll see real craftsmen.

Talk to the blacksmith, tanner or cabinetmaker about their work.

There is a little stage where you can listen to some typical music or watch short theater plays.

Especially on weekend there are well known medieval bands playing or you can watch some nice fire shows. Just check the homepage for the program.


During the week there is free entry. Only during the weekend you’ll have to pay 3€. But it’s worth it :)

For further information you can visit the official website.

Christmas warm up


From now on it’ll be only 5 more days until the famous Striezelmarkt (aka christmas market) will be open to the public.

It’ll be open from 26th November until 24th December.

A few retailers are still setting up their stalls and working on their final decoration.


It’s actually quite nice to wander along the empty aisles looking at the closed stalls, imagining how busy it’ll be in a week. Just the perfect time for taking proper pictures without thousand of people around you :)


There are a very few stalls, where you can already have some mulled wine to set your body temperature right :)

We’ll keep you up to date next week, which christmas markets will be good to have a look at and what you can expect to see there!


For detailed information you can have a look at the official homepage of Dresden

About villains and villagers

It’s christmas time!
For the next view weeks our staff will be playing a wonderfull game about an unknown murderer, who’s gonna kill al villagers without getting busted. Everyone who’s getting murdered has to provide an picture of the crime scene!
Our staff member Marc got killed first! So we are proud to announce the first crime scene to the public!
Keep an eye open for future scary crime scenes! :)

Update: ♫ Monday Monday … ♫
Unfortunately we have to announce a new loss of one of our staff members. Cora died last week a terribly pained death. We reckon that she suffered a while before loosing her consciousness! We promise to keep looking for the cruel murder. Don’t worry for now we can stick to our usual opening times at the reception


After a little time out, the mysterious killer has stricken again. Not only we have to announce a new loss of one of our staff, we are also concerned about our interior. Should you spot any damage on our lockers, please feel free to see the reception. Please also consider any blood staines as part of the new wall design ;) You know: everything can be art! ;)

Romy tot-2
Oh by the way, while cleaning through the hostel, we found the missing head! Now at least we can keep Romy forever at the reception! Isn’t that nice?

At the moment we are looking at a pure kill streak! Are any religious reasons involved?


Oh will the killing ever stop? The killer left a ironic message: “and out of the window went … Juliane”
Mordopfer Jule

New crime scene has turned up! This time one of our housekeeping staff member got waterboarded!


I guess a part of the staff member is still better then losing him completly

I just wanted to refill our beer, when I stumbled upon a new crime scene



Not only we can keep your luggage in our storage. Obviously the murder had the same intentions for storing some goods.



We tried the very best to become the last standing man. Unfortunately he’ll wander between the two worlds from now on. RIP – you were a good man!
