The quarter Dresden-Neustadt with its connecting suburbs, one of the largest cohesive Wilhelminian style quarters of Germany, the garden city Hellerau and the mansion suburbs Blasewitz, Loschwitz und Weißer Hirsch not only remind of a great era of Dresden but also symbolize the regained quality of life.

There is a vivid alternative milieu in the Neustadt quarter with numerous international restaurants, cocktail bars, cafés and "gemütlichen" pubs.

The rich cultural life of the city with the Saxon state opera (named after its arquitect Semper - Semper Opera), state theater, state operetta, philharmony, various festivals and reams of small scenes, cabarets and event locations make Dresden very attractive at night time, too.

Thus, Dresden also offers an ideal condition for conference meetings and congresses. The existing congress opportunities with an congress center nearby the historical center, situated directly on the Elbe banks, and multiple further convention sites as well as venues for remarkable events.
