Dresden for Gays A tour of Dresden's conventional culture and its subculture

For centuries now, Dresden has been at the cross-roads of various cultures. This is where art and culture are at home. This is also where an atmosphere of tolerance could develop in which gays and lesbians could also feel at home. The reason why Dresden is not a gay centre could be because the Saxon's also have a reputation for being good-natured. The slogan of many gays and lesbians here seems to be not to provoke but rather to integrate. Thus gay life freely mingles with the rest of Dresden's night life.

During the daytime, lovers of beauty can already fully enjoy themselves - with the arts of course. Everywhere in town you can see statues representing images of beauty past and present: the fountains at Albert Square, statues of beautiful ladies on the Hauptstrasse, the four times of the day at the Brühlsche Terraces, young boys of the Muses in front of the Schauspielhaus theatre, the collection of sculptures at the Albertinum...

The baroque Zwinger itself with its many sculptures and rich ornamentation is a symbol of the cheerful and erotic joy of living. And whoever seeks shall also be richly rewarded at the famous Old Masters' Picture Gallery. There are several paintings of the Holy Sebastian, with the paintings of Antonello da Messina and Nicolas Régnier being especially worthwhile. Not to be forgotten are the famous angels in Raffael's Sistine Madonna. And then there's the mighty knight of the Georgentor gate of the Royal Palace - approaching him from the Schlosstrasse the viewer is given undreamed of outlooks and insights.

On top of the hills overlooking the Elbe near Loschwitz is where Albrechtsberg Palace stands in solitary splendour. The Scottish Lord Findlater had the original palace built for himself and his "secretary". On the terraces of English Tudor-style Eckberg Palace is where you can find a bronze Egyptian lad worshipping the sun. The statue was made by Sasha Schneider, the gay friend of Karl May, the author of adventure stories, who by the way also established one of the first gyms in Europe. Schneider's illustrations of the first edition of May's work were censored because of his liberal portrayal of male nudes. They can however still be admired at the Radebeul Karl May Museum.

Dresden is also a city for romantics. When strolling along the Elbe on the other side of the historic old part of the city at sunset, many an old or new love can be wonderfully rejuvenated. And Cupid's arrow already waits arched in front of the muscular figure of the bronze archer at the foot of the Rose Garden.

In the evenings there is the extensive cultural programme of the Semper Opera House (the ballet ensemble of Vladimir Derivianko is also worth seeing), and of the many other theatres, concert halls and churches. Dresden's subculture can best be explored during a stroll through the Neustadt borough. Bordering onto the streets with their night bars and pubs is the gay sauna "Man's Paradise" where you can do more than just relax. Occasionally stars from the gay scene will appear to either read from a book or to present themselves.

Walking from Friedensstrasse, you first reach Café Europa where you come across a very mixed group of people. A house next door (No. 66) is where Erich Kästner was born in 1899. From here it's not very far to the two pubs "Roses" and "Boys" .

Memories of Miro's Barcelona come to mind during a stroll through the original Kunsthofpassage between Alaunstrasse and Görlitzer Strasse. On the right a rainbow flag hangs in front of "Queen's". The former owner, "Uncle Ralf", also treats the Dresden scene to regular parties including the annual "Techno Boat Parade" along with the appropriate guests to go with it.

At the "Bunker", at the north-eastern perimeter of the Neustadt, is where friends of leather, latex and jeans can get their money's worth. Saturday nights though you have to follow the "dress code". On the way there it's worthwhile to stop in at "Mona Lisa", and to look into the district house, where the gay club "Gerede e.V." has its club rooms. Here there are also sometimes author's readings. The club originated from the local freebie gay magazine called "Gegenpol".

The Holiday Inn located on the outskirts of the scene district was the first hotel in Dresden to give gays a special "Dresden for Gays" room rate. A special service is the breakfast buffet on Sundays until 3 p.m. following an extensive Saturday night life.

With the concession ticket "Dresden City Card" you can use the city's public transport for 48 hours (including a night tram service), visit the museums of the state art collections free of charge, and you are also given a discount at numerous other places. You can get a concession ticket at all better hotels and at the Tourist Information Centre at the Prager Strasse and the Schinkelwache.

Dresden Neustadt

The Dresden Neustadt is also the area where most of the gay and mixed bars welcome the gay and lesbian visitors.
