Quartier VIII-1 | Quartier VIII-2.1 | Quartier VIII-2.2

The visualisations are at the bottom of each page. You can find an overview of Quartier VIII here.

The contemporary/modernist core to Quartier VIII 2.2 looks like what the plastic surgeon did to Michael Jackson's face. Often, attempts at trying to acheive two competing goals ends up with neither being done well.

Anyone know how long it takes to get to Dresden by train from Berlin? Thinking of doing a day trip in May (I missed the change last time).

Bahn.de can help you. Looks like the fastest trip takes about 2 hours.

Who's behind the reconstruction, may I ask?

Private investors. The city sells them these different plots of land (Quartiere) along with certain guidelines as to which buildings have to be reconstructed.

the city should continue selling remaining plots for private reconstruction.
I've seen on an aerial pic there are lots of demolished quartiers with just grass on it!

are there any plans for reconstructing everything where it's possible?

Money.

Developers would love to get projects going but capital funding is very tight.

There is a dangerous balance, too, as time passes. As we have seen, empty spaces or ravaged buildings may get a green light and funding to "just get something new" on the site which looks horrible...but will last 100 years or more. Such a situation can occur by waiting too long to develop or by jumping the gun. The process is very intricate and requires a very large amount of rationale thinkers who love the city.

Hello. I am new to the forum. I came across this thread in a search for Dresden Neumarkt on google, so I decided to join.

What a pleasure it is to read though this. I had the opportunity to spend a few weeks in Dresden with German friends in 2006. The beauty of the restored city is breathtaking. Of course there was so much construction going on around the Frauenkirche at the time.

I was greatly interested in the beautiful three and four story buildings that were being restored. They make up the living heart of the city in addition to the great churches and monuments and palaces. I saw several sites of newly discovered cellars from the before the war. Building was going on to restore the old buildings.

I have not had the chance to visit since then, and I have been curious curious as to the progress. This thread is a real treasure: a step-by-step journey through the reconstruction. So much has been done!

Welcome! The discovery of Dresden is like unearthing a well kept secret that only a few in the world know about...both its horrific destruction and it glorious resurrection. Glad you made the discovery and found this site!
