I am well aware it is a reconstruction, but I think you missed my point. Even though these buildings (at least most of them) are reconstructions, it feels far more natural and organic than most modern structures being built today. The city is investing in its aesthetics and improving (or in this case, recovering) its architecture for its people. It seems that the opposite is true for most Western cities these days.

WTF? A garage next to the Johanneum? It almost looks like you couldn't pass that narrow alley next to it anymore?! Are those planners completely BONKERS?

I don't really understand where cars are supposed to enter the Neumarkt anyway. I thought it was closed off to traffic.

I'm assuming that only residents and hotel guests will have access.

To completely close off an area to cars is suicidal for demand if the place relies heavily on retail and the likes.

Many other major sites in Germany have paring garages at or very close to it, from Alexanderplatz in Berlin to the Dom in Frankfurt.

Well, if they removed that godawful modernist structure two doors to the left, they'd have a nice wide alley for pedestrians to use.

Room in there for a nice beer garden too

Despite some of the shortcomings it's great to see the recreation of an urban space like this. And some of the nicest buildings are yet to come...

Unbelievable... I have been to Dresden in, guess when, 2005! The difference is remarkable. You all should thank Canaletto's paintings.

It's not like the reconstructions were done due to Canaletto's paintings.

Many of the buildings depicted there already didn't exist for ages before WW2 for instance.


Anyway, fantastic development for Dresden. Generations of people to come will honour this achievement. Go Dresden, go!

Interesting, but it should have included a 1990 pic too (Frauenkirche and Schloss in ruins)

Stunning! Thanks for that comparison, I cant wait to follow the continued progress. I'm looking forward to going back to Dresden, and continue to tell Europe bound tourists to stop and check it out.

Is there any talk of holding off areas due to economic uncertainty, or is there enough momentum to get the NeuStadt "completed".

Dresden is a german city, not a greek one.

Just kidding of course.
Anyway, projects like these create jobs and prosperity. Economic uncertainty could be a 'problem' when it would be a private project, but I believe this is financed by (some kind of) government.

Correct me if I'm wrong.

You're wrong, most of the Neumarkt project is financed by private investors.

Only a small portion is built by PPP-like models, such as the donation-driven GHND project.

They're doing the final leaf guilding. What you see on the pics, was just golden paint.
