DirectionsShow MapHide Map
Attention: Dresden has two major train stations. Closer to the hostel is the station Dresden Neustadt. Almost all trains stop there too, particularly trains from and to Leipzig, Prague and Berlin.
From the Neustadt train station
Leave the station through the main exit. Go straight ahead on to 'Antonstrasse' and continue along past the square, called 'Albertplatz'. Keep on walking straight, the street is now called 'Bautzner Strasse'. Turn left at the next crossing, onto 'Rothenburger Strasse'. After 500m the street changes its name to 'Grlitzer Stasse'. We are at the next crossing to the right.
time 15-20 min, approx. 1500m to walk
If you don't want to walk, take tram No. 11, direction 'Bhlau', or No. 6, direction 'Niedersedlitz', for just two stops to 'Bautzner/Rothenburger Strasse' tram-stop. Here you change to tram No. 13 direction 'Mickten' and once again travel just two stops as far as the tram-stop 'Alaunplatz'. Now you just have to walk back along the tram-line for 100m.
time approx. 15 min: 1 min to walk 100m walk
From the main train station (Hauptbahnhof)
Catch tram No. 7, direction 'Weixdorf', as far as the stop 'Bischofsweg'. Turn right onto Bischofsweg and continue along for about 400m. Take the third street to the right, you will find us after 100m.
time approx. 20 min: 5 min walk 500m walk
From the airport
The easiest way is to catch a train from the airport to the Neustadt Railway Station and then follow the steps shown above.
Time approx. 60 minutes.
You can also catch bus No. 77, and change to tram No. 7 at the stop 'Infineon Nord'. Leave tram No. 7 at the stop, 'Bischofsweg', turn left onto Bischofsweg and continue along for approx. 400m. Take the third street (Grlitzer Strasse) to the right, you will find us after 100 m.
time 30 40 min: 5 min to walk 500m walk
Attention! There are hardly any parking spaces and many one way streets.
Leave the highway at the exit 'Hellerau' and drive along the main road to the town center. Turn left at McDonalds on to 'Fritz-Reuter-Strasse', pass underneath some railway bridges, cross the next big intersection. The street is now called 'Bischofsweg'. On your left hand side is a big green square. At the end of it turn right on to 'Kamenzer Strasse' and turn right again into the next street, called 'Sebnitzer Strasse'. Our entrance is about 200m ahead on your left hand side, just before the next intersection.
You can drop off your luggage with us here. Afterwards, just find an available and legal place to park in the neighborhood. This can be especially difficult in the evening, but it usually works out okay. We recommend that you don’t overlook the pay-and-display ticket machines! Parking is checked. You can get change from us. The still reasonably priced parking fee is enforced every weekday between 9:00 am and 12:00 midnight. The parking duration is 25 cents for 30 minutes, 50 cents for an hour, and 3 Euros for the day. As an alternative there’s a parking garage on the Kamenzer Strasse 26 right around the corner. Every started hour costs 1 Euro.
The hostel is situated right in the heart of the Dresden Neustadt quarter, which is on the opposite side of the River Elbe to the historic inner city. To get there it takes a pleasant 30 min walk or just 4 tram-stops.
The Neustadt is the cultural centre of Dresden. You won't find as many clubs, event-locations, pubs, street art etc. anywhere else in Dresden. Particularly in the summer, many visitors and residents simply sit out on the sidewalk drinking and chatting. It's a colourful mixture of different philosophies of life and ways of living where punks still live side by side with lawyers. Life continues to be played out and celebrated on the street here, especially during our neighbourhood festival, the 'Colourful Republic of the Neustadt', or BRN, in the middle of June.
It's less then 15 minutes to the nearest train station and it's only 4 tram stops to the historic inner city. The famous Alaunpark is only 100m away where, especially in summer time, people young and old go to meet and relax.
