Once a year a group of funny people swim 3.5 km through the Elbe river, from the Blue Wonder bridge to the quartier of Johannstadt. Organized as a one-time event in 1998, by the recently passed away Dr. Dietrich Ewers, it soon became a tradition of the city where hundreds (and now thousands) of people take part. Together with the festivity of the neighborhood, you will find every type of person, young and elderly, disguised in all possible ways while swimming. #Holga #LomographyXPro200 #Elbeschwimmen #Elbeschwimmern #Dresden
