Top 5 Spring activities in the Great Garden in Dresden

The Great Garden is more than just trails and meadows. Dresden’s first baroque building, the Palais, is situated right in the center of it.  It hosts the botanical and the zoological garden as well as an open air theatre for concerts and theatre. Of course, it’s perfect to overcome your spring tiredness. Try this summerlike activities there:

1. Minigolf! Not only fun for kids and families. Rent equipement for €2 and battle your friends.

2. Rent a boat! And paddle to the hidden angles of the park.

3. Make love between the high weed! Watch out for the long blades of grass and throw yourselves in it. You can really get lost in there. If you really need an adventure. Try this.

4. Have a beer! Beergardens are supposed to be typical German. Alright. The Great Garden offers you several possibilties to try the different kinds of Germany brewed beer. Traditional kitchen and adequate music is available as well.

5. Let your hair wave in the wind! Hop on the small park train. It’s fun. It’s much faster than you would think. Don’t get impressed by the age of the other „travellers“. They just don’t know what they’re doing there.

Best love bird atmosphere

Only a few days and spring arrives in Dresden. You too? Then don’t miss these spots to revival your spring fever:

  • The Great Garden: lots of meadows to lay down on a picknick blanket,  a small baroque palace, ponds for the romantic do-it-yourself boat cruise and fountains for wet water games, lots of different flowers to put in your hair and feel the spirit of the 1970s. Close to the Great Garden is the best soft ice cream seller in this area. The long queue approves the quality.
  • The Dresden Zoo: Now’s the time when most animals got their offspring.  Gives you a big plus, if your girlfriend is besotted with cute animals.
  • The Elbe meadows: romantic bar-b-qs, camp fires, accoustic guitars and in front of you the silhouette of Dresden’s historical part. Your girlfriend will melt like icecream.
  • Martin-Luther-Platz: That’s were a friend of  mine roll on the cobble stones and was kissing a nice guy.  In the sheadow of the Luther church. So that seems to be a romantic place as well.
  • Pillnitz castle: Make a bike tour along the river and the Elbe meadows to this place. That’s really fantastic.  See the three Elbe castles and their vineyards. Arriving in Pillnitz you’ll find a romantic baroque castle with a big park to lay down, a photo setting for couples and a snack bar with saussages and french frites,  if you can’t bear so much kitsch and beauty.
  • The beer gardens: More or less Bavarian. The Neustadt has two less Bavarian, but more atmospheric ones. 1st the Scheune Biergarten with chains of light and under big trees and 2nd Raskolnikoff’s backyard with cobble stones and water games.
