The OSTRALE Biennale is an internationally recognized platform for contemporary arts of all genres, which at the same time offers a podium to unknown artists and presents established artists. It sees itself as a socio-critical „Showcase East“ and focuses on artists from the eastern hemisphere in an international comparison. It is one of the most important temporary exhibitions of contemporary art in Central and Eastern Germany. More infos

Sächsische Schweiz

This applies for every time of the year: Use the excellent public transportation to be within 35 minutes from Hauptbahnhof to famous Königsstein in the Sächsische Schweiz, where you can go hiking in great surrounding. Or have a look at the recommendations from the Dresdner Verkerhrsbetriebe (DVB) for walking tours starting at the terminal stations of the Dresden lines!

Tips for inside

Deutsches Hygiene Museum

In the Deutsches Hygenemuseum we recommend you to visit the current exhibition “In Prison – Detained and Deprived of Liberty”. It goes deep into questions on how society should be organised on the one hand side and current reality in European prisons on the other hand side.
Tickets can be easily booked online. To buy your online ticket you have to choose your visit date, so a maximum number of visitors can be guaranteed!
