Thank You a lot!

Question: I have around 60 more pictures of nice houses and beautiful landscape
that also gives an idea of how the surrounding areas of Dresden look like.
The pictures are construction updates or made just like so, but not from the Neumarkt. They are made from a narrow valley untouched by war right behind this hill seen here:


It is still part of Dresden, but I don`t know if I can bring in so many pictures.

Would that be OK of showing them?!

I'm curious about the Mitte district and the area around Thomas Müntzer Platz -- from looking around the city it seems like they're parts of town that have retained significant prewar stock and are currently seeing significant infill (Mitte especially) as well.

I wouldn't say there is any 'significant' retention of pre-war stock in these places. They're more like broken fragments of a once much denser cityscape.

Of course it would make sense to fill in these areas according to the original grid, but I honestly expect a poorly thought out response that creates dead space and unattractive streetscapes – that is to say, I expect awkward modern boxes will be dropped wherever they'll fit. This is largely in keeping with modern urban planning, really. Sad, but true.

In an ideal world, Mitte could easily accomodate some reconstructions (or at least buildings that somewhat resemble the form of the originals), seeing as in a lot of cases an entire block remains bar maybe one or two former buildings (unlucky enough to be struck by the stray bomb). This almost certainly won't happen, though.

So let`s go in the hills behind the hills. When Dresden grew, it swallowed 105 villages. Therefore there are many old farms in Dresden. Let us start behind that hill in the former village / neighborhood of Loschwitz.




This is the "Grundstrasse". Lots of renovations. The house on the right is new. The owner wants it overgrown like the neighbors.


New;


That is what he likes it to be;




There is a road fittingly called "Berg-Weg"


Lots of timberframe;




This house gotten a yellow. black and red roof. The timberframe neighbor replaced the "Gefache" between the beams with glass.

Elli Kny!

Houses waiting for love. The rail goes above the houses to save space. Must be like air travel for the kids every morning!


This is "Villa Orlando"


"Luisenhof" and "Villa San Remo" on the road "Am Hirsch"


Some houses are new;


"Alpen-strasse 1" The smaller houses are new;


And we have this baby from the 1980`s. Private construction was possible in East Germany. East Germany was not completely communistic organized. There where even private businesses back then.


Witch brings us to the Lahmann Park. This used to be a long time care facility and is being revived with public pool and residences / offices.










A little bit needs still to be done;


I love it; the right house gets a medical clinic for the locals;


What looks tike a Jugendstil façade is new;



Thanks, Elli Kny!

Of course....




This is close by. Located at "Bautzener Landstrasse". Eight million will be spend on this building next;






This is going to become a restaurant again;


Well, I wish them luck! They call the project: Palais Weisser Hirsch. LOL. Looks like a Palais. Old world charm, the basement becomes the swimming pool and no fridge needed in winter!





pictures from Elli Kny.

This owner likes color;




This is not how it is supposed to be done. The color is supposed to be mixed in to the top stucco/Putz layer. Well cheap solution. Hopefully the wall can breath...


The area is well mixed;




The white and the red houses are new;


Here we have "Villa Sonneneck" and "Villa Schau ins Land". Very practical to keep against zombies and communists.


Since the area is called "Am Hirsch", many owners are putting a Hirsch on their house. Makes me wondering: What if the name was different? Like maybe "Am Arsch?"








Nice view of Dresden. Dresden Mitte is right down there;


farm houses;






This is a horse farm. Really nice;






One of the former villages. Name of this one is "Niederpoyritz"

Thanks, Elli Kny!

This is a nice renovated old farm building;


This building is 500 years old and will be saved. It is called "Goldener Loewe" and will be used as Gasthaus again. It always has been used as Guesthouse and pub. All the 500 years long! Just needs a little Botox....




Dresden is not far......




A view down to Dresden and the Blaue Wunder called bridge. The new building with black roof (hot in the summer!) is a new hotel.


Well.....


This building is 15 Years old.


This is proper. Believed to be Oberloschwitz, Sierksstrasse 15.


Sierksstrasse 14. 90 Years old;


Also private, also 1980`s DDR.




Construction nearby..... called Koenigs Park


Don't worry, the house will be saved.




Someone`s heaven.


Construction everywhere.....

Elli Kny.

There is a construction boom. Kitchen makers are six months behind orders...
Those two houses are brand new. They look good;



My home is my castle;


This house, "Am Hochwald" 1 will be renovated.


Another Villa. "Kurparkstrasse 8"














This house has found a lover;


This is "Schloss Albrechtsberg" right on the Elbe river;


This is the "Lingerschloss"


This is "Schloss Eckberg"


This is "Dinglingers Weinberg". You know, the Kings Goldsmith. Hans Nadler also used to live here.


"Villa Meissner"





Elli Kny, thank You,

I also got pictures from the 1870`s. When the Saloppe was build;








And the "Grundstrasse" back then. Still with open brook.




This is 1892. The foundations for the Blaue Wunder called bridge.




And this picture from 1860;


Called "Heinrichshof"










And it goes on and on and on...


"Collenbuschstrasse"




This is how Dresden used to look; "Stechgrundstrasse"











pictures, Elli Kny!

Let`s pay Schloss Albrechtsberg a visit and check out the redoing of the terraces; the so called Roman Baths.




The waterworks are still dry;




And we see the Schloss; We are 10 meters above the Elbe;














The bath, still to be worked on;














Writing from Sowjet Solders, therefore: We are not in Italy!



Thanks, Elli Kny!

"Villa Neapel"




This building is the Post office!


"Villa Calberlaststrasse 8"


Hard to put the cars somewhere


The people spend much effort in gardens;








On top. The "Luisenhof"






Beautiful;








This is the "Veilchenweg"


It is really nice here;

Thanks, Elli Kny!

And we close our tour with the rail flying above in the sky!




Nice;


Wine and fruit plantations are growing everywhere.


This is the former village of "Altwachwitzens"














Very romantic;







Thanks, Elli Kny!

Thank You for watching, I thing everyone got the idea. I hope it was not too much. It could go on for ever. Further away are more working farms with fruit plantations and many Gasthauses with Biergatens. The tourists don`t go there and the food with live music till mornings four/ five o`clock on weekends is fantastic. See You later;-)

Thanks so much for posting. Its really cool to see sides like this to foreign cities, as they are not areas youll generally go as a tourist visiting and probably wont have time to see them. But I love the diversity of houses there..really fascinating

It seems mostly like large flat blocks spaced very far from one another?
Yes, as ugly a planning/design scheme as could be. Looks like the atrocities on the south side of Chicago. Horrible in context of itself, but when one considers what these monsters replaced...only drugs can ease the pain.

Well I guess it happened every where on earth really. No country escaped it , makes me feel a bit better when looking at old pictures of cities in my country with near physical pain It just makes me so sad seeing developing countries like China destroying all their heritage right now..they are going through the exact same process western countries did and they will regret it dearly in years to come just as we did

While no inhabited city on earth can be expected to be frozen in time architecturally, the most interesting manage somehow to preserve a significant amount of historic sections and individual architectural gems that lend character to a place. When I think of the deliberate and wholesale and destruction of the 1940s, '50s, and '60s, whether through war or "urban renewal," I curse those responsible for callously robbing future generations of an important connection to the past. Kudos to those places that recognize the importance of such a connection.
