Since 1836, this outdoor swimming pool had been a whimsical place to spend a hot day in the water communing with nature. In 1988, however, this luftbad (open-air pool) was left to drift by the wayside due to a lack of funds. But in 1996, in association with Zschonergrund, the space was reimagined and reconfigured with a beautiful open-air pool. With the addition of a beer garden and café, letting its natural setting pervade every space, Luftbad Zschonergrund e.V. is now available for private parties.
As the name suggests, Gaststätte Oma is sure to remind you of Grandma's abode! It is visited by all age groups who enjoy the comfortable ambiance and unique decor, which make one forget of being in a restaurant. The interiors have an antique look, complete with a wooden staircase, potted plants and a huge grandfather clock! The prices are reasonable and so students frequent the place. Their beer garden and terrace are equally inviting on any occasion!
Saustall (the 'pig pen') is the place to come for pork lovers. With a huge array of traditional pork dishes (roast pork, pork on a spit, pork pies, pork casserole etc., etc.), this rustic restaurant is popular with locals and tourists alike. A huge children's play area ensures that parents can pig out in peace. A carnivore's delight.
The Weltcafé is located within the Weltcafé Hotel. This chic café serves premium Guatemalan coffee, 12 flavors of organic ice creams, waffles, savory delights and many more specials. It takes pride in the fact that it serves only fair trade and organic products. Its coffees are brewed manually and can be enjoyed seated on the summer terrace. This place has a warm vibe and can get very cozy, especially when it is snowing outside. It is an adorable café to grab some organic food, a tall glass of lemonade and relax with a good book.
Almost every city has a Roxy, and this is one is just the same. At least it's one of the scarce party locations in southern Dresden; the music is somewhat predictable (dance, charts, hip hop) and drinks are affordable. That's probably why the place is frequented by young people from the adjacent districts and villages. Friday is a special night: girls with handcuffs get to ask boys to unlock them with a special key and if it works, which seldomly happens, the pair win a bottle of sparkling wine.
One of the city's top bars. With over 700 spirits, 250 cocktails, countless cigars and a wide range of international and Swabian cuisine, Sonderbar offers an unparalleled choice of refreshments. Indeed, the drinks list is almost the size of the Oxford English Dictionary, so it may be worth listening to the bartender's recommendations before tackling the drinks list yourself.
What was a grocery store when it opened has now turned into a restaurant serving quality food and catering the same. Lovers of good food and ambiance come to Paul Rackwitz either in groups or with loved ones. The wooden furniture, the quality of food served and the minimal noise level is all what makes up Paul Rackwitz.
On a rock, alongside the River Elbe you'll find the Wirtshaus Lindenschänke serving delicious local cuisine. The cook entices guests with good solid Bavarian and Saxon cuisine of a high standard and there's a wonderful beer garden, set in the shade of 100 year-old lime trees. The Augustiner beer is a secret tip for beer drinkers as this is the only place it is served in the whole of Dresden. The Lindenschänke is not just popular with business people, but also with more diverse customers who come here to enjoy the food.
The former brewery, Feldschlösschen-Stammhaus offers authentic German flavors coupled with freshly brewed ales. A special feature is that each sort of beer comes with its own individual menu, with fish dishes to accompany lighter beers and sausages to accompany the darker beers. Visitors can marvel at the copper beer vats and take a guided tour around the next-door Beer Museum every Monday. This single site accommodates several people with varied interests - for history buffs, it emphasizes history of brewing in Germany, for food-lovers, it serves gastronomic delights, so delicious that you just have to return and for beer connoisseurs it is truly a haven with splendid brews like Feldschlösschen Pilsner aboard. All in all, Feldschlösschen makes for an interesting visit.
The food here is just what you would expect from an American restaurant: big platefuls of burgers, fries, Caesar salads and the like. Lemonade, ice tea and coffee are topped up free of charge by the waiters, grinning from ear to ear in the true American tradition. The decor is fairly kitsch and perhaps a bit over the top for purists, with walls crammed full of celebrity photos. The Sports Bar offers a large selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.
The B Liebig café is a very popular destination for students that can be found in the Dresden's restaurant ghetto. No wonder really, as pasta, roasts and stews are all available here in trendy surroundings at low prices. You might even get in with a friendly professor or lecturer at one of its 100 seats, and then you won't have to worry much about the next examination.
So small yet so multi faceted! The culture center riese efau offers events of all kinds: parties, live music, gay-disco, women-only night, cinema, gallery, workshops, and even childrens night. As performance spaces they offer a quaint cellar and comfortable attic, and on the first floor there is a bar. Cultural projects frequently take place here, including special film fests that celebrate the lost of the Super 8mm film.
