Large scale removal (Flächenenttrümmerung) then really began 1948/49 which produced the empty scenes known from pictures. The Seevorstadt was among the first quartes completely cleared.
They officially finished in 1958 with the last Trümmerbahn removed.

Many thanks for the answers. I have seen many photographs with this view from Neues Rathaus taking in the 40's, 50's, 60's, 70's and so on. The change is quite shocking really. It is a truly terrible thing that happened to Dresden in 1945; why it HAD to happen, I will never understand. I feel ashamed that the city was destroyed, and people can not keep saying "well that is what happens in war", there was NO requirement to bomb Dresden in such a devastating way. The history and architecture that has been lost, not to mention the needless slaughter of civilians, can not be justified. It is testament to the Dresdeners strength and courage that the clear up of the ruins began so quickly, especially as they must have known that there would be no survivors under the rubble.
If only we could turn back time, and stop the destruction.... It must have been a truly beautiful city before the war.

The "Atlan" is worked on. One can see the almost finished base:

We are in the "Summer hole". That being said, we have to bring out the big guns to wake up this forum! And since Castles are always a crowd pleaser, more info about the Residenz Schloss. LOL
Some pictures from the year 1987:


The wall is 1.2 m thick. This is between audience room and official bedroom. (Well, not right now. You would fall thru the ceiling)


This was open door day in 1991. Makes no since to me, since they had no doors back then.


The audience hall.


"Lumpen Koenig"


This is going to be finished in September 2019. 2019, because it will be the 300th anniversary of the wedding between the son of "August dem Starken" and the Kaisers daughter. The rooms where made and finished 1719 and will look like this:


This is a plan for the contractor:

This is a map of the castle. The "Kanzleihaus" on the lower right half is not part of the Schloss. The "Kanzleihaus" is owned by the Catholic church, a reconstruction and used as office and residential space for its dignitaries and employees. Above the "Kanzleihaus" we see the "Stallhof", witch is an inner court for the use of horses. Above that, we see the long hallway beginning by room #5. The "Gewehrgalerie". This "Gewehrgalerie" is subject to partial reconstruction and will house the arms collection. Many arms where bought brand new 100, 200, 300, 400 and 500 years ago for this display. The Residenz Schloss Dresden is the oldest Museum in the world. Older than the Museum of the Vatican since Dresden was open for public 25 years prior to that. Some collections are older than that but where kept private at first.


But first, we take a look at the green "Silbersaal" in the middle. The hall is on top of the public road, the "Schloss Strasse". here the pictures from the old gate prior to 1899:


After the remodeling from 1899 to 1901: The renaissance gate was saved and relocated. The new gate was wide enough for the cable cars!






Now to the "Gallerie" and the plans to build it:


Plans for the contractor;








This is for the paintjob; the contractor can calculate costs better with plans like this one:


Here an example; in original 73cm x 21cm;

Thanks, user BautzenFan!

The chapel is coming along as well. No word of about any paintworks just jet. It may takes some time.
The chapel today:



Old parts and new;


A saved coat of arms;




The finished chapels portal in renaissance style;




The south western stairs tower;




Same place 1982;



The just recently (2015) reconstructed pelican above the lions gate in the Schlossstrasse;


This was before 2015 (2011);

Thank you, BautzenFan!

Other parade rooms are coming together, too. Here some ceiling works for the bedroom:


It is always interesting to see, of how it was installed;






Here a Muster piece, to show people of how it is done;


A little bit closer;


And of course, I can not wait for the "little Ballroom":

Thanks a lot, BautzenFan!


Here a little film in the local TV. Lots of pictures, please ignore the fact of German speaking in it if needed. The pictures do all the talking

Coffee and cake at home in Dresden among friends! That is my goal, so thank everyone for support!





Now a little update:















The corner of Mr. Blobel uses Clay brick instead of cement bricks unlike the neighbor:







Thank you very much, BautzenFan.

I stubled on this while having a stroll on Pinterest today. I Know it doesnt really belong here, but as we so often discuss the further reconstruction of Dresden outside the historical old town, i thougt i just have to share my find.

Its a project by the architecture student Fabian Jäckel of TU-Dresden.

He did a city planing desing how to reconstruct/redevelop the Pirnaische Vorstadt.

Its really an amazing Work!

Pleeeease let someone make this reality. This would really add something to Dresden besides the Neumarkt.

These plans and images make my jaw drop. I can't say how many times I've pored over aerial photos of the old Pirnaischer Vorstadt with a feeling of deep loss and a sense of yearning, hoping seemingly against hope that this magnificent section of Dresden would someday be rebuilt. Torontonia's post makes the possibility excitingly real, and leaves me wondering if Dresdeners would support such a reconstruction.

Yeh I noticed this too when viewing dresden on google maps. The reconstructed old town is simply beautiful! But not being accustomed to dresden and never having visited I was shocked and a bit disappointed that any dense urban settlement ends very abruptly outside there in dresden. It seems mostly like large flat blocks spaced very far from one another?
