The world of
mobility as an event venue

Turn your event into an unforgettable experience at the Transport Museum in the city centre. The Johanneum, formerly the royal stables to the Saxon court, situated on Dresden’s Neumarkt square – in the heart of the city by the Frauenkirche – is an incredible locale for your event.

  • Your guests can expect exclusive attractions from the mobility world: the place where princes and kings once ‘parked’ their horses and carriages today accommodates a unique variety of vehicles to admire and enjoy ‒ histor­ically significant locomotives, automobiles from all eras, classic and rare bicycles and motorcycles, legendary aircraft and magnificent ship models.

    In fine weather, the English steps outside greets guests in spectacular style at the Neumarkt.
