the large open area next to the police headquarters in the top 2 photos (white wall) is Quartier III and will largely be made up of Hoym Palais.

???. Not sure what you mean by this, but while it is true that a vast amount of Germany's historical and important architecture and buildings/monuments etc were destroyed by the mass terror bombing unleashed by Churchill, the nation has recovered quite well and is trying, often quite successfully, to restore the lost past.

I would not say poor, poor Germany. Such a set of adjectives is more appropriate for Greece, Spain, Portugal, etc.,....and maybe soon the U.S. if the current leader keeps messing things up.

wow, congrats to dresden, you guys are making a great effort to reconstruct your city.
Although making baroque buildings is way more expensive, this will payoff in the future, cause it will attract more tourism to your city
keep up the good work

^ Oh yes, guys this is what I want to know - are those decorations on buildings (ie reliefs, sculptures etc) hand made? Id imagine theres very few people left with this sort of skills which would mean such work must cost a bomb!

I totally agree.
It's the only country in the world that has developed and industrialized itself 3 times with nothink but human ressources.

And if that guy meaned ¨poor¨ regarding the heritage loss, then it's not Germany but the whole humanity that have lost all that beauty.

I wouldn't say Turkey lost Pamukale for tourism especulation: the world has lost it.

I hope next step in Dresden is to demolish that disgusting concrete box and reconstruct.

Quartier I is complete. The current plans for Quartiers II through VIII are moving ahead and are expected to be completed by 2013.

What remains un-finalized to "fully" restore the neumarkt are final plans for the kulturpalast and the ugly buildings that front Wilsdruffer Str. It is unlikely that these two areas will be dramaitically fixe before 2030, however, since it has been determinted that the buildings have at least 20 years of "life" left in them.

Putting a few finishing touches to the British Hotel:

Does anyone know what the heraldry represents?






And some decoration being added to 29 Rampische Straße:

Is there a master plan to rebuild all of Dresden someday? Might we really see the end of the kulturpalast and perhaps the rebuilding of the Sophienkirche? Maybe it could all be done by the 100th anniversary of the end of the war.

Probably the coat of arms of the Beichling(en) family. The Beichlings were a minor noble family from Thuringia, which was later ennobled to counts of the empire. The imperial eagle probably depics this, while the other parts probably just represent the estates in Thuringia, which often were very small. The lion could be the Bohemian lion, but this doesn't make a lot of sense for a Saxon/Thuringian family.

Destroying the Kulturpalast would be a very dumb decision.

Not at the present. Such master plans are a work-in-progress and change as people change and financing etc. And, according to current laws and building codes, property owners may or may not be obligated to rebuild/restore what existed pre 1945.

It is almost a certainty that the Sophienkirche will not be rebuilt. There is a plan to construct a silly looking memorial near the original location (the actual site is now a modern building).

The kulturpalast almost got approval for major renovation or removal, but the plans were not finallly approved and it looks like we are stuck with that great big pimple on the nose of the Neumarkt for a couple more decades at least.

Actually, depends on how you look at it. Financially, destroying the building now without adequate funding to rebuild a multi use facility immediately would not be such a good idea.

but, from a standpoint of destroying it in due course, it's a good idea. The building is not good construction. It has no lasting value, and will require major costs for upkeep. it was build with a long term DDR mentality in place, and that is no longer the case. So, hopefully we'll see it gone within 10-20 years.

It's a nice building and the mural is monumental. I bet the construction is much more stable than many monuments from earlier centuries. Should we tear them down as well because they "require major costs for upkeep"?
