Fringe Events

Unforgettable experiences

Anyone who attends an event at DGUV Congress in Dresden can look forward to not only outstanding congress facilities, but also a visit to an enchanting city.

We aim to give our guests the chance to see Dresden from its most fascinating angles. Known as the “Florence on the Elbe” due to its Baroque buildings and picturesque riverside location, the city blends the best of both nature and culture. Charming vineyards, majestic rock formations and world-famous art treasures all await you!

When planning fringe events we place particular emphasis on insights into Dresden’s cultural landscape and history – so don’t be surprised to see Saxon Elector August the Strong standing next to you at dinner! A trip to Moritzburg gives you the chance to revisit one of the most popular German-Czech fairy tale films of all time – Three Gifts for Cinderella.

Whether you plan to hold a conference, workshop or board meeting, we are here to provide you with support during the organization of fringe events which match your group and event. Contact us to find out more.
