For over 30 years there is the student club Bärenzwinger in Dresden. A student club full of traditions, but also a place for relaxed beer evenings, concerts of all kinds, summer theater, readings and much more. in short: there is something for everyone - come and convince yourself!
Generations of students and young people have come here, have danced and listened, celebrated and mourned, drunk and discussed, laughed and cried. The FDJ student club of yesteryear became a cultural meeting place for all the young people of today. However, it was always the members of the Bärenzwingers who shaped his culture and his flair.
The Bärenzwinger is part of the former fortress Dresden at the eastern end of the Brühlsche Terrasse between the bastions Venus and Mars. The name is derived from "Batardeau" (...) Show more or Bär, stone dam, and not as popularly mistakenly assumed by bears who were allegedly held there.
Since 1968 is located in the Kassemettengewölben the student club of the TU Dresden, whose courtyard was covered in 2006 with a glass roof, in order not to bother the residents of the adjacent retirement home acoustically.
With its location next to the Albertinum and between the Frauenkirche and the Synagogue, the Bärenzwinger is one of Dresden's few attractions that are still considered insiders' tip: In 1707/08 Johann Friedrich Böttger invented the European, later the so-called Meißner, in the directly adjacent Jungfernbastion Porcelain.

Seit über 30 Jahren gibt es den Studentenclub Bärenzwinger in Dresden. Ein Studentenclub voller Traditionen, doch auch ein Ort für entspannte Bierabende, Konzerte aller Art, SommerTheater, Lesungen uvm. kurz: für jeden ist was dabei - Komm vorbei und überzeug dich selbst!
Generationen von Studenten und Jugendlichen sind hier eingekehrt, haben getanzt und gelauscht, gefeiert und getrauert, getrunken und diskutiert, gelacht und geweint. Aus dem FDJ-Studentenclub von einst wurde eine kulturelle Begegnungstätte für alle jungen Leute in der heutigen Zeit. Immer waren es aber die Mitglieder des Bärenzwingers, die seine Kultur und sein Flair geprägt haben.
Der Bärenzwinger ist ein Teil der ehemaligen Festung Dresden am östlichen Ende der Brühlschen Terrasse zwischen den Bastionen Venus und Mars. (...) Show moreDie Bezeichnung leitet sich von „Batardeau“ bzw. Bär, steinerner Damm, ab, und nicht wie im Volksmund irrtümlich angenommen von Bären, die angeblich dort gehalten worden seien.
Seit 1968 befindet sich in den Kassemettengewölben der gleichnamige Studentenklub der TU Dresden, dessen Innenhof 2006 mit einen Glasdach überspannt wurde, um die Bewohner des angrenzenden Altersheims akustisch nicht zu belästigen.
Mit seiner Lage neben dem Albertinum und zwischen Frauenkirche und Synagoge, gehört der Bärenzwinger zu den wenigen Dresdner Sehenswürdigkeiten die noch als Geheimtipp gelten: In der direkt benachbarten, heute zugeschütteten Jungfernbastion, erfand Johann Friedrich Böttger 1707/08 das europäische, das später so genannte Meißner Porzellan.
