So much has been built since I visited Dresden a few years ago. Very exciting.

When was your last visit to Dresden, and how did you like it?

I'm pleased that somewhere in the world there lies to will to reconstruct a lost heritage.

I visited Dresden with German friends (from Hamburg) in 2006. We were there for a week, during the Striezelmarkt at Christmas. We stayed at a small Bed and Breakfast on the Nieritzstrasse in the Neustadt. Several of the smaller streets in the Neustadt were very nice with charming buildings. Of course I also saw many 'commie blocks'.

The Frauenkirche had just been finished. I was very moved and overwhelmed by the beauty of the reconstructed Altstadt, especially when I saw the panorama across the Elbe and walked across the Augustus Bridge for the first time.

I had read about the Frauenkirche for several years. There were many other beautiful buildings and monuments that were reconstructed - the Zwinger, the Hofkirche, the Palace, the Opera and others.

But most of the Neumarkt was an open space. I think two of the Quartiers were completed - I may be wrong. The rest was a construction site or just open. There were signs showing what the buildings looked like in the past and signs showing plans for the future. There was excavation in progress - at the time I was there many cellars had been found that would help recreate the buildings.

In the time since 2006 there has been so much construction. There will be far more to see when I return. And of course the building is still going on.

I love Dresden.

My favorite building in Dresden is the Kreuzkirche. It is more humble and less impressive than the magnificent buildings close to it. But I love it.

Okay, thank you for your short report about Dresden. Nice if you liked it. After the Neumarkt is almost completely built up again, hopefully on the other Elbe-side houses are reconstructed historically.
