"Wie heißt das Gebäude und steht es noch? "

Das ist das Kronprinzenpalais in der Straße Unter den Linden. Das wurde Anfang der 50'er Jahre wieder aufgebaut. (Allerdings nur die Fassade, Innenräume sind nicht erhalten).

DRESDEN - old postcard views

Now I'm going to show you something of the grand old Dresden in Saxonia, East Germany. These are some postcard views of GDR-times I've found at the German APH-Forum.

Lean back and enjoy the historical breath of old Dresden:


Old town, as seen from the tower of the city hall (= Rathaus)


Old town bank / promenade


Brühl'sche Terrasse - Brühl's terrace (unique terrace made by the master builder Thormeyer and named after Heinrich, count von Brühl)


Banks of the Neustadt (= 'New Town'), view to the Frauenkirche (Our Lady's Church)


Hofkirche (court church / cathedral)


Old town banks with Hofkirche and Schloss (= castle)


View from the Neustadt banks


Dresden - Hauptbahnhof (= central station)


Panorama of Dresden



Arrival at the central station (Hauptbahnhof), Prager Strasse (=street)


Victoriahaus


Kreuzschule


Altmarkt (=old market)


Dinglingerhaus, Jüdenhof (Hof = court)


Schloßstraße (castle street)


Zwinger and castle


Taschenbergpalais (a reconstructed luxury Kempinski Hotel nowadays) and chapel




Theaterplatz (Platz = square) - theatre/opera square


Sophienstraße and castle (the castle's mainly reconstructed and partly still UC nowadays)


Semperoper


Georgentor and Hofkirche ('royal' church)


Großer Schloßhof (great castle court)


Kanzlei (office/chambers) and Stallhof ('hutch-courtyard')


Stallhofgang


Synagogue


Coselpalais
[/URL]

Altstadtufer (old town bank)


Neustadt, Narrenhäusel ('Jester's house' )


Neustadt, Rathaus (city hall) - it's intended to reconstruct this building. Nowadays some Plattenbauten (low commieblocks) destroy the beautiful impression of the sculpture ('Der Goldene Reiter' - The Golden Cavalier) and buildings around


Neustadt, Grosse Meissner Gasse (Great Meissen Alley)


Neustadt, banks of the river Elbe with sculptures of bowmen


Neustadt, Carolaplatz (Platz = square)


>Up into the air: Frauenkirche


Sky views




Wettinerplatz


Palais in the Großer Garten (Great garden)


Postplatz with the Telegrafenamt (telegraph agency)


View into the Augustusstraße


Altmarkt (old market) with Altes Rathaus (old city hall), Löwen-Apotheke (Lion pharmacy) and the Germania memorial


Heliotypes of a splendid Gründerzeit (~Belle Epoque around the turn of the 19/20th century) building - the Kaiserpalast (or "Ilgenhaus")





All those pics were most likely taken around 1900 'til WWII. I hope you enjoyed the little excursion to the pearl of the Elbe

Just incredible how much was lost. And I'm already happy with small reconstructions like the one at the Neumarkt...entire boroughs were wiped out though.

German cities were no doubt the most beautiful ones in Europe at that time.

Actually, all towns in Europe were beautiful, even industrial ones. Whether liberal, communist or fascist, all regimes favored beautiful architecture. I believe that towns built up to the 60s were also not that ugly and that housing estates were then somewhat a success in Western Europe (at least in France). Centre-towns were durably damaged though.

Step away from the caps lock sir!
I agree though. Many structures from 1910-1920 are very charming and beautiful.

Of course we should also rebuild structures from the splendid era around the turn of the 19th/20th century. Unfortenately there are still many ideological blockades to burst. To many old-68ers who think it would be a sacrilege to reconstruct historicist buildings of this era
By the by, the quoted building (the Kaiserpalast in Dresden) was build in the year of 1895, at "Pirnaischer Platz" (=square).

Another postcard of this building within its context:


Taken from this Dresden-Wiki


To attract the view on Berlin again - the Berliner Dom (=cathedral) back in the past:



Compare: Nowadays



As you may obviously spot, it looks quite different now. They reconstructed the dome in a simplified way, as well as the spires/lanterns. Currently the cross on top is demounted due to some renovation works. As suggested by some architecture friends/organizations this would be a great chance to reconstruct the whole dome with the towers, since they also have to be renovated soon.
But, times again, there seems to be no chance for such a project - the cathedral is a building of the 19th century


An additional image to show the condition in 1964 - after the heavy bombing in WW2 they've only built an auxiliary dome:



And again, nowadays. A quite sad sight without the cross on the cupola...
