Gorgeous. I wish they could've found some way of artificially aging the roof tiles, but that is my only complaint. The photo of Schloßstraße above is absolutely stunning

"Artificially aging" the reconstructed buildings would have justified the opponents "Disneyland" argument. That'd have been a really stupid thing to do and I'm glad they didn't go for something like that. Give it the time it needs to age venerably.

I know, that in one of the other quarters, they used tiles of slightly different shades and mixed them together, to get a more textured and less artificial looking roof scape. So something like is indeed possible and it worked just fine. No modernist was complaining!

I still think Quartier II/1 is the best.

Yes, mixing different shades of tiles would've been quite an effective approach too. Still, the overall effect of the facades is spectacular, no matter what is on the roof.

How about the Hoym Palace? Is this also going to be reconstructed?

I agree, Quarter II/1 looks the best. They did a lot of things the right way (actual brick walls for example!) And it doesn't look artificial to me at all. Looks like a freshly renovated block of genuinely old houses.
So there must be something "not right" with the pictures of the new quarter, if it gives off such a weird vibe to me. Maybe it's just the roofs though...

Edit: The roof tiles of the new quarter are actually kinda shiny. Are roof tiles supposed to be shiny? XD

Just a naive question, where did come all the money for those restorations?

Investors are actually scrambling to build around Neumarkt. It's the very center of the city. And Dresden is a wealthy city, that can even get away letting the investors wait some time.

You won't see it like that when the opposite quarter of buildings is finished anyway.
It will be part of a rather narrow alley.

Any date on when they'll begin with that Quartier? Plenty of Rekos in that one as well if I remember correctly.

I look forward to visit Dresden, what's the best period of the year to do that?
Or maybe wait a little more, till more renovations are done?
I wish mass renovations like this in my home town...

That will help obscure that mistake, but it's too bad the three on the right will be hidden as well. They look splendid together.

The Neumarkt will not be finished anytime soon, but there already is quite a lot to see, so you don't have to wait for more reconstructions.
The best time of the year? Hmm, probably May - September. And December, before Christmas, when the Christmas markets are open. Saxony is great during that time of the year.
