I guess it'll be similar in color to the Zeughaus in Berlin. I didn't like the pink tone initially either but it has somewhat grown on me.

Right, it would change. But we are talking of a German city and in Germany they rarely let that happen to facades in the historic city centres (only if the city is really poor). They want everything to look very pretty and shiny.

Look at this building, posted earlier by Kampflamm:

The facade had a wonderful years old patina, like you find them in mediterranean countries. Now it looks like a wedding cake again.

I agree that many, if not most cities, can not afford to maintain the exteriors of their historic buildings in their original, clean appearance. But, I personally am ever so please that some cites are able to do so. While the "patinaed" look may seem attractive to some, it was not, usually, the original intent of the archetects to allow dirt, grim, and other environmental factors to discolor or otherwise alter their works. The "wedding cake" look seems great to me!!!

Is the British Hotel going to be painted pink? I have to admit, I really like the look of the unpainted stone in this instance.

Does anyone know if the colors on the reconstructions are actually the original colors? Weren't they mostly grey before the war? Or are they just picking the colors as they go?

BTW, apparently the British Hotel will now be painted in a greyish-beige tone instead of the pink one seen in the pics.

Here's a shot of the nice lampposts that were added to one of the entrances of Dresden's castle a couple of weeks ago:

Very, very nice lamps. These kinds of finishing touches add a real sense of substance and authenticity.

Thanks for the always-fantastic pix, Kampflamm!

Most probably in Saxony. Keep in mind that many buildings all over Eastern Germany were restored after 1989, there are many specialized workshops available.
In case you are interested: the mirrors within the Green Vaults for example are new, but no modern mirrors. They were manufactured by a Saxon workshop using historic techniques, since old mirrors from the baroque era weren't that clear and reflective.

You can read more about it here (use Google Translate):

The lamp fixtures are also manufactured to replicate the original design as closely as possible.

Fashionking, I travel over 11 hours by plane to visit Dresden and bypass both London and Paris! Dresden is far more exciting a destination in terms of experiencing the vibrancy of architecture being uncovered, preserved, restored, created, and debated.

I Love the British Hotel! I wonder how much a night there would cost when it's finished?
