It was at the end of 2005 that Sylvia Richter-Krancher decided to transform her passion into a business. Her passion, that is cooking with fresh and seasonal products and presenting her dishes with love and an eye for details. Old family recipes were waiting in the drawer, the big kitchen of the house the perfect workplace already fully equipped and ready to use, and so without further ado Sylvia brought the “klein und fein catering” […]
I had the pleasure to talk with Ratimir (23 years), originally from Duschanbe (Tajikistan), about student life in Dresden. Since 4 years he is studying electrical engineering at TU Dresden. Here’s my little interview for you: How would you describe Dresden to someone who has never been? It’s a cultural city with a stunning Altstadt and a perfect campus; the atmosphere is familiar. Even being more than 35.000 students you often see familiar faces. The […]
Every year for 2 months the Ostrale invites national and international artists to take part in a remarkable event at a historical site. The Hans-Erlwein-slaughterhouse offers 15.000 m² exhibition space and an outdoor area more than three times larger. You hardly encounter other visitors and especially a grey sky adds to the post-apocalyptic atmosphere, that creeps upon me in the old halls.

And happily she brought along all her creativity and sense for colours and surprises. The little snailshells inspired her for the flowershop’s name. I […]
Next to Lutherkirche in Dresden’s Neustadt, very close to Bautzener Straße and Albertplatz, there is ZAFFARAN, an amazing condiment shop and café. From squid’s ink to tonga beans, from Japanese yuzu to Persian blue salt, there’s no condimental wish to remain unfulfilled. My friend Nancy treated me with a heavenly smelling lemon verbena. Can’t wait to use it! Don’t miss to pass by, tea and cake have been divine, too!
There’s a very nice Deli just beside Zeitenströmung, Dresden, Königsbrücker Straße 96. Recently I went there with a friend, and our mission “lunch” was a true success! I recommend you give it a try if you are in the area. The atmosphere is relaxed, food and wine delicious! If you happen to stand in front of the Elements Restaurant (hungry as we both were) looking for the Deli, just follow the street in direction of the […]
