Salsafestival Dresden

Location

Das Ball- und Brauhaus Watzke

In 1898 the first couples danced in the Watzke ballroom - initially to waltz, then to swing and now to Salsa.

This ballroom is, without exaggeration, one of the most beautiful ballrooms in the Free State of Saxony and the jewel of the Watzke-house. The impressive ceiling paintings, the lavish concert stage and the imposing columns were restored extensively and with attention to monumental protection.

The two chandeliers are no longer in its origin, but they were reproduced true to the originals. From the terrace on the ground floor and the balcony leading from the ballroom, one can enjoy the unique Canaletto view of Dresden´s old town. The Watzke is so close to the Elbe, you can enjoy the sight and the water, bridging the time until the next dance at ease.
