Thanks for the posting!
The city is empty in that area. In fact, there are still ruins. Dresden lost 500 000 people; The city was refilled with refugees / survivors from the back than east Germany like Breslau or Stettin or Pilsen. But the newcomers where not so many in numbers to catch up with pre war numbers. Also low rises where added and suburbia started to lure people away. That is why it is so empty. As a matter of fact: Volkswagen
build right there a assembly plant for the Phaeton. A Glass Plant for visitors. With Canadian Maple floors where they work on. There are also several other factory's right next to the downtown core. They where put there to fill the space. It is quite funny. But hey; Lots space to develop!

And now more pictures. Here is where we stopped last time:


















Thanks, Elli Kny!

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.
In architectural terms, Dresden is fortunate. My city of Coventry suffered an abominable rebuilding and development programme following the war. There is very little of merit. However, it is beautiful to see how Dresden is coming along. I'd love to visit and pay respect. What a stunning city this looks.

The German "Bild" newspaper writes about the Neumarkt project in Dresden:

Neumarkt in Dresden is now fully rebuilt

It's a sight that only the oldest citizens of Dresden might still remember: the Neumarkt as closed market place instead of the huge open square we all have come to know...

The wound which was inflicted upon the city in the second world war is now fully healed again, says the newspaper.
The last gap is being closed: the construction of the 6th Quarter closes the missing corner of the market place.

The so-called Neumarkt Palais City One will accommodate apartments, offices and businesses as of end of 2018. Investment: 45 Mio. Euro.
The nobel price winner for medicin, Günter Blobel (81), is having the former department store „Au petit bazar“ reconstructed.

Historical buildings like the „Regimentshaus“ and the Chiapponische Haus will also be reconstructed to their former glory.

View from the Frauenkirche:



View from the Altmarkt in the direction of the Frauenkirche:



That's how the façade of the Neumarkt-Quarter will look like in the future, as seen from the Verkehrsmuseum:

I've always found these oversized plastic ice cream cones funny/weird. I associate them with Germany because that is the only place I ever have seen them. I remember the first time I saw them was in the late eighties in pictures in my German textbook from highschool. Then when I went to Germany I kept seeing them everywhere and always thought they were kinda weird but affectionately German.

Hello everyone! Welcome back to Dresden!

Let`s start our picture update with the "Grosse Garten" , which is something like the central Park of Dresden. The large Park with its one and a half square kilometer is very close to the Neumarkt. But now the Parks and Castle management is very happy: The rebuild of the Neumarkt sucked all the funds dry for years. But around 2014/15 the Park management complained and is receiving more funds. Since the Neumarkt is repaved, the city has more money left and the park is getting many features rebuild pre-war.
And now some pictures. This is one of the very view good lanterns. (They have only two) This type of lantern is too expansive for now.



Inside the Palais:


The northern hall;




Rooms in between;








Southside hall;


View of the past; Very busy indeed; They where in desperate need of an Autobahn back then!

pictures from Elli Kny.

We need better lamps!




It amazes me always, of how mankind can work so peacefully with the so powerful element we call water.




Towards the "Hauptallee"

Now, Ladies and Gentleman, please take a look at the Schloss. There is now an update. We will get a restaurant in the Schloss court!
Here the evidence;






Thank you, Elli Kny!

Also, the "Grosser Ball Saal" or "Big Ballroom" is in the works;


This room had to come back last. Here the reason: The contractors used the big ballroom as entrance;

The works on the "Atlan" are moving. The artists are making first copies on cupboard. That way, they can change things and take peeks from the distance;




Historical painting of the renaissance style! This will become a blockbuster!


Paint studies on the tower.


The entrance to the Schloss Strasse


And we see this Schloss poster;


This may be of interest;

Thank you, Elli Kny!

This brings us to the reconstruction of the "Saloppe". The building used to be a pump station for the city water. The war took two towers and a whole wing. The waterworks have become 10 years ago a new building and the Saloppe will get underground parking, a reconstruction of all missing parts and will be used as residential. The former Minister President of Saxony and his wife bought a apartment for downsizing, too.









The towers are back - after 70 years.




The new wing, that used to be missing:


Bonus picture: A nice Villa close by. The view down from up there goes toward Neumarkt waterfront.

Elli Kny.
