Spotted in one of the best guides: Lonely Planet!

Lighting up Dresden’s culinary scene of late is this fantastic place that’s well worth the trip on the 11 tram. The creative menu is streets ahead of most offerings elsewhere, although the best way to experience the ‘Pleasure-Atelier’ is to book a surprise menu (three/four/five courses €35/45/55) and let the chefs show off their craft. Reservations essential.

How Dresden Is Modernizing Itself for Travelers

Dresden, one of the most opulently architectural cities in Germany, is readying itself for a refresh. Long known as the Jewel Box of Germany because of its baroque and rococo splendor created by past Electors and Kings of Saxony, Dresden is a hub for both culture and art.

This year, Dresden, the capital of Saxony, is welcoming new hotels and new culinary and cultural projects that will continue to keep the historic city relevant for travelers today. The city is currently in the midst of a construction boom that will bring it a new look. The most evident transformation is happening right in the heart of the city. Destroyed in 1945, Dresden is working toward developing large-scale urban projects that will position the destination as a cultural capital once again.

Of note is the new Kraftwerk Mitte Dresden, a center for art, culture and creativity housed on the grounds of a former heating and power plant. The building will be the future home of the Dresden State Operetta and tjg (Theater Junge Generation), which stages theatrical productions for young people. Kraftwerk Mitte will also bring creative spaces for artists, as well as offices and eateries.

This year, the Dresden Kreuzchor boys’ choir is celebrating its 800th anniversary on March 4, with a festival performance in Semper Opera House. The choir will be accompanied by the Staatskapelle German orchestra and other soloists.

Dresden is a capital for foodies, as well, with a long tradition of organic farming. Travelers should not miss visiting local restaurants that are showcasing locally sourced products from the region. Schloss Wackerbarth, a winery and eatery, has its own blend of Saxon and Mediterranean cuisine, as well as a list of wines from the property’s own cellar. The menu at Genuss-Atelier, located just above Waldschlosschen Bridge, features fish from the nearby Moritzburg ponds, as well as organic produce and beer from the church-run farm at Lieske bei Kamenz, as well as herbs from the banks of the nearby Elbe River.

Travelers can also sample the wine tradition of Saxony at Hoflossnitz, the oldest vineyard in the region, built in 1601, or make a stop at Christian Schwingenheuer in Dresden’s Neustadt district, which is creating organic beer.


Last year, Dresden saw a slew of new hotel openings. Star Inn Hotel Premium Dresden im Haus Altmarkt in the city’s Old Town opened last March, with 123 rooms in four categories. Integrated into the building, the historic Haus Altmarkt is a Viennese-style cafe.

Gewandhaus Dresden, which reopened in April 2015 after new renovations, also has a central location in Old Town. The five-star boutique hotel became the second German hotel in Marriott’s Autograph Collection. The property has 97 rooms, a spa zone and a gourmet restaurant. Built between 1768 and 1770, the building shows off the city’s baroque history.

Last June, Holiday Inn Dresden opened within walking distance from Zwinger Palace. It has 144 rooms, five meeting rooms, an outdoor terrace and a restaurant that serves Mediterranean cuisine.

Coming in July, there will be a new Amedia Hotel on Neumarkt street. With 103 rooms, it will be one of several new buildings under construction in the area between Schlossstrasse, one of the area’s central streets; Kulturpalast, a multipurpose hall; and Johanneum, a 16th-century Renaissance building now home to Dresden Transport Museum.

Hampton by Hilton is also constructing a 197-room hotel on Ringstrasse, next to the Rathaus (city hall).

A brillant guest review about Dresden lifestyle, architecture and our Restaurant in his own fashion blogon July 0th, 2015. You can find out more about the blog

–>  here.

We are back on track and Dresden lived up to its name as the ‘Florence of the Elbe’. While an architectural highlight, when you consider most of the old city was rebuilt after the war, the fashion left us a bit perplexed. Jürgen joked that I could do a few ‘bad taste photos’ for the blog, but I decided that only good images land on this website, so I thought I would save you from that!

Here, the men wore three quarter trousers and socks with sandals…and we aren’t referring to the hipster Birkenstock and socks look that still continues to find its way into most collections worldwide. The women were also somehow pattern-crazy, but not in the good sense. The locals chose simple looks and jeans proved a firm staple here.

On another note, we did manage to find two culinary highlights during our stay. Villandry, a tucked away spot where we were treated to salmon and a most exquisite swordfish. On Saturday night we tried Genuss Atelier, also tucked away, this time with arched beams in a basement. The food was astounding, where creative salads, guinea fowl, stuffed veal with spinach and even gin distilled in Dresden proved sure winners. Thank you to the wonderful staff that spoilt us at both locations with excellent, laid back service.

Haute Cuisine at Genuss-Atelier


This picture shows Lisa Deutschmann (business management and marketing), Martin Seifried (chef), Marcus Blonkowski (chef) and Nicole Blonkowski (restaurant management).

They all met in Vienna where they studied, trained and worked in Haute Cuisine. The team of four decided to start something great back in their hometown Dresden. And born was the idea for Genuss-Atelier: a restaurant that offers food of an extraordinary quality in an unpretentious atmosphere.

Our lunch
Romaine Lettuce with Poularde, Capers and Parmigiano
Saibling with Parsley Root and Leek

Mousse of Gingerbread with Crumbles and Morello Cherries
