Dresden`s city hall or Rathaus as it is called there is also putting in little reconstructions. One by one the complex is getting renovated. Here some pictures from 2016, with an open day to the public.
The "Ratskeller" Pub back the basement of the city hall



The front. Still simplified.


original. 1949


The golden entrance. Guests of Dresden enter here.


The major of Dresden. Mr. Dirk Hilbert


Lets follow me inside, please!




On our way to the celebrations staircase, we will find this notice. It is from the first construction times and says:
In the years 1904 to 1910, in a time when Friedrich August the III carried on the crown of Saxony and Otto Beutler was Grand Major of Dresden, the citizens of Dresden ordered for good use and honor this house to be build by Karl Roth and Eduard Brauer! May God bless it!
(in Germany house does not mean residential)

thanks, bilderbuch!

The stairs for celebrations. They used different kinds of marble. The paint scheme is from Otto Gussmann 1911. The latest reconstruction, not to be seen on this picture, are the remaking of the original 28 lamps, using the Jugendstil.


The putten are made of bronze. The stairs is a three wing staircase.
topped by groups of children.







Painted by Otto Gussmann 1911


The technique used to paint this with is fresco-secco!


The halls for celebrations have been renovated in the 60`s style. The halls where rebuild in the early 60`s. Just 2-3 Years ago, it was discovered that the ceiling is about to give away! The DDR had used cheap material after the war!!! Parts of the city hall where evacuated and closed. This was redone like original 60`s. Basically a reconstruction of 60`s style.


The original doors where refreshed, too


The city hall court.


original 60`s design, too.

thanks, bilderbuch!

And let us relax a little at the Zwinger! Who likes to join?

We see on the left the mathemischen-Physikalischen Salon, in the middle the Wallpavillion and on the right the Franzoesischen Pavillion.


The Schloss in the back


On the left is the Deutsche Pavilion and on the right the Glockenspielpavillion.


The Wallpavilion

Tanks, bilderbuch!

Now, let us go in and thru the pavilion and cross it to the other side. There is a little court that is missed sometimes by the tourists and we will enjoy it all by ourselves!


This is the Nymphs Bath, the "Nymphenbad". Between the Wall and Fanzoesischen Pavillion, just behind. On the pictures here, the cascade is turned off. Oh well!


It is actually funny: Thousands of Tourists are walking by 60 feet past and don`t know.


The statues are from Benjamin Thomae


Others are from big guys like Georg Wrba

Thanks, bilderbuch!

They have planted now some Pommeranzen, or little orange trees.
The orange trees are planted in re-made porcelain pots. The pots are painted in the colors from the house of Wettiner, The royal family of Saxon. The orange trees used to be here 200 years ago. So, it could be seen as a garden reconstruction

The pots are made of oak, Meissen porcelain would be way too expensive and sensitive today. There was some confusion because a newspaper made that claim with the Wettin colours. But the colours of the Wettin family are yellow (gold) and blue, not white and blue.
In fact, the colours resemble the typical white and blue sheme of chinese and therefore Meissen porcelain (Unterglasurblau).

Reconstruction of the interior of the palace of Dresden ist still ongoing. This is one of the rooms, that is right now in the works:


(Computer simulation)

The ornaments on the walls are not just wall paper or painted, but actually tapestries of the highest quality.
Madrid based traditional tapestry makers of Real Fabrica de Tapices is doing the work on these tapestries and if you watch the short documentation of their work on it, you'll see the insane effort and time it takes to recreate these tapestries the traditional way:

While many notable historically-designed new buildings in Dresden give reason for great joy, the even larger effort to fill countless vacant lots and tear downs with international modernism gives reason for great disappointment. Huge disappointment. The missed opportunities in Dresden are almost criminal. Everyone understands the universal desire for modern interior conveniences and spacial layouts, but the blockhouse and sterile exteriors are just so, so wrong.

I'm afraid this was probably unavoidable. After the catastrophic destruction during the war and subsequent economic troubles under the GDR, no one can blame Dresden for wanting to build itself up again during a time of renewed economic activity. However, this eagerness to build means that anything and everything is approved, really. Only now are discussions being held concerning Dresden's building culture, though the damage has been done in a lot of places.

Hopefully the future is brighter. Even if it's one without any more historical reconstructions, quality modernist construction would still be great for the city

A neat picture comparing part of today's Altmarkt with what used to be:



Look at that! Preserved GDR architecture that would comfortably fit in with a reconstructed Altmarkt

... Unlike the Kulturpalast

I love that building.

If only they kept rebuilding in that style rather than shifting to modernist architecture.
