Join our celebration when the orange trees return to the Dresden Zwinger!

As in the previous two years, you can celebrate the festive return of the orange trees to the Dresden Zwinger with us. From noon until evening, there will be illustrious baroque entertainment and culinary offerings in the Zwinger courtyard. In the afternoon, the little trees will be paraded through the inner city and arrive at their summer residence, the Zwinger courtyard, with pomp and circumstance.

A detailed schedule will be published here in spring of 2019. You’re in for a surprise!

Admission is free. Drop by for a while and enjoy the unique Mediterranean/baroque atmosphere on the first day of the Orange Summer at the Dresden Zwinger!
