Hi All,
Has anyone gone to previous shows? I am thinking about possibly going but I would like to have a few opinions on whether you liked it or not. As most of the vendors listed are German, would there be any issue if I do not speak German? Thanks.

Mark

I haven't been to the orchid show, but I've been to Dresden and its a great city. I speak some German, but it's a major tourist hot spot so the old and new centre will be friendly to English speakers. Doesn't hurt to learn a few basics though, they appreciate it.

As for vendors, English will be the lingua franca from my personal experience at Orchid shows, as a show of this side will attract an international crowd.

If you can afford some time, do visit the old centre, it is beautiful! The new town is quite hippy, but a very friendly place. Enjoyed a long weekend there at a hostel by the Neustadt bahnhof.

I have been to the Frankfurt orchid show in the Palmengarten excellent show loads to buy and the Palmengarten itself is worth a half day minimum
