Dresden City Festival 2017

Most years we head down to Dresden in August for their city festival. We really enjoy wandering around, listening to music, and eating all the foods!

The past few years we have started out getting lunch in a northern section of the city which is pretty quiet

Then heading down to the festival fun

2017, for the first time since we had been going, the festival was stretched out on the right side of this photo. Prior years it was on the right and across the bridge to the left. It was kind of nice having everything on the one bank of the river instead. 

Wandering around downtown



Steam engines 






That year we decided to check out some places we hadn't been to before in Dresden. The one museum downtown had a sign outside that said free entrance this weekend so we went to check it out















We went to spy on the Großer Garten park



It is the Palais Großer Garten


Takin a break and looking at the palace





The back side of the palace

Fun water fountains

The last day of the city festival they have fireworks, and we always miss them as we usually head home on Sunday. That year we decided to stay an extra day to see them

So we headed down to the water and got a spot on the edge of the walkway


And watched the fireworks! It was a lot of fun

Last day wanderings with very few people around


We missed the festival last year as it was right after we got back from the states, but hopefully next year we will make it again.
