Between the monthly jazz- and blues concerts “live at the balcony” in the erdgas arena and the concerts of the Elbland Philharmonie Sachsen GmbH in the city hall “stern” you can experience a large bandwidth of art and culture in Riesa. Exhibitions with works made by Saxon and international artists, as well as different readings and lectures are offered by the house at the Poppitzer Platz with the city museum, the city library and the city gallery. Different artists of the city offer entertainment and active participation. But not only that! The striking 25m high sculpture “Elbquelle” made of cast iron by Jörg Immendorff in the near of the Elbe bridge is a significantly modern piece of art in the public space.
The lovey restored chapter hall in the Town Hall or the roadhouse and the monastery wing with its exposition to the indigenous flora and fauna offer a view in the past of Riesa as a monastery village.
You can take more suggestions for interesting lectures, guided tours and exhibitions, big and small events from our event calendar.
