The historical Dresden

Hey people,

indeed, I am not ready long yet, but you would leave, nevertheless, sometimes a comment there, or?

A lot of fun still with look, and excuses my bad English

Vielen Daenke!

My heartfelt thanks to dakir and Kampf for their gorgeous photos of Dresden's miraculous rise from the ruins of WWII. These pics actually inspired me to spend a couple of nights in Dresden on my last trip to Germany (Taschenberg Palais - not so expensive in the off-season!). I wasn't disappointed, and came away with a sense of re-emergent Florence-on-the-Elbe.

One question: What about that "Culture Palace"? The taxi drivers all told me that it would stay as a reminder of Dresden's DDR past. I certainly hope not. It's a typical banana-republic "prestige" building that could just as easily be located in Managua or Hanoi. It's presence really harms the Neumarkt.

Thanks again for the inspiring photos!

Thank you catoneinutica for the praise

The "Culture Palace" is redeveloped for more than 60 million euros in the next years. Unfortunately
This is right, the cultural palace in the heart of Dresden if a prestige has been an object of the former GDR.
I am for a complete demolition. Also there born I to you surely, the cultural palace destroys the nice new market.

9. Italienisches Dörfchen

The so-called Italienisches Dörfchen in Dresden is a historical restaurant. She is in the theatre square near the court church, the Zwinger and the Semper opera in the historical area of the city centre.
When the Italian architect Gaetano Chiaveri established the Catholic court church, Chiaveris presumably also lived from Italy the coming craftsmen and artists near the building site on the left. This corresponded to the principle of the cathedral construction huts which were furnished in the Middle Ages during the construction and also for the later maintenance of the big cathedrals. The Dresden vernacular called the small houses soon "Italienisches Dörfchen". Later a popular restaurant which took over the name "Italienisches Dörfchen" was at this point.
Dorten the association was founded during the Reformation day in 1861 to the care of the free speech Polyhymnia, the later corps old Saxons. Before the First World War suitable new building originated representative, to the architectural rank of the neighbouring constructions according to draught of the Dresden city government building surveyor Hans Erlwein. After 1989 the restaurant was closed at first and reconstructed later or restored. Also even today she belongs to the nicest and most popular restaurants of the city.

10. Taschenbergpalais

At the beginning of 18-th century, in the period of bloom of the baroque, it was built as a dear gift from August to the strong for his Countess Constantia by Cosel. Since his destruction in 1945 it stood like the Dresden residence castle (with which it is connected about a bridge way) till 1992 as ruins in the Dresden Old Town.
1693/94 the Haugwitzsche house originated here of the later Taschenbergpalais. The architect Johann Friedrich Karcher established in 1705 to 1708 including predecessor's constructions the Taschenbergpalais as a city palace for Anna Constanze of Hoym (since 1707 countess Cosel). After countess Cosel had fallen from favour in 1713 with August and had been exiled, the palace was furnished in 1715/1716 according to the fashion partly oriental and received the name "Turkish palace". The construction was extended during the following one and a half centuries several times: In 1718 to 1720 Mattew Daniel Pöppelmann and Raymond Leplat worked inside carried out for the crown prince's families. In 1747 to 1750 extensive cultivations came under the direction of Johann Christoph Knöffel. After already in 1756 to 1767 a renewed extension of the complex of buildings was carried out under Christian Friedrich Exner and Julius Heinrich Schwarze, other architectural changes were carried out only in 1843 to 1848. In 1854 to 1857 the southeast tract was established as the last extension, in the end.
The construction restored extensively only in 1934 was destroyed in 1945 at the end of the second world war and remained almost half a century of ruins. After old presentations the palace was entirely anew built in 1992 to 1995. The reconstruction cost a total of 127.8 million euros. So far possibly, original structural fabric from the time of the Saxon baroque was introduced, only for the conservation of monuments and historic buildings 13.8 million euros resulted. In the Taschenbergpalais the five-star hotel Taschenbergpalais of Kempinski of Dresden was opened on the 31st March, 1995. It was the first 5-star hotel in Saxony and hears hotels of the World to the Lea's thing.

12. Albertinum

At the eastern end of the "Brühlschen Terrasse" lies the Albertinum which owes his name to the art lover and Saxon king Albert. The museum originated in 1884 to 1887 from the rebuilding of the old health resort-princely armoury, an arsenal which was established in the 16-th century. In 1965 the gallery new master entered in the Albertinum. The collection exists of pieces of art from the 19th and 20-th century under which also works of Monet, van Gogh and region gin are. The treasury "the green vault", the sculpture collection and the coin cabinet were till 2004 part of the exhibit in the Albertinum. In September, 2006 the green vault should be opened in his original rooms in the residence castle anew. Also the coin cabinet is shown in the househusband's storm of the castle in a special exhibit. The sculpture collection presents a part of her works since then in the Dresden kennel. To probably in 2009 the Albertinum remains closed on the basis of renovation work.

13. The Brühlsche (Brühl's) Terrace

The Brühlsche (Brühl's) Terrace, also "Balcony of Europe" called, is the last remained piece of city wall of Dresden.
It was named according to the count Heinrich von Brühl here in 1739 - might put on 48 his palaces and private pleasure garden. Here the former state house, the Secundogenitur are (built for the second-born prince), the academy of pedagogic arts in the style of the neobaroque and the Albertinum, formerly armoury, today museum building. On the north-east page of the Brühlschen terrace the Belverdere, one of the better restaurants with cafe was till 1945. A new construction or reconstruction is planned. To the north is the terrace shore with the landing stages of the steamboats of the "white fleet". A steamboat journey in Saxon Switzerland has in good weather anyway his charm.

14. Georgentor

The Georgentor or the Georgenbau lies in Dresden with the castle square between the residence castle and the stable court. The construction became from Georg to the bearded arrange.
The old city exit to the Elbebridge, the Elbedoor of the city fortress, was altered from 1530 to 1535 by the master builder Bastian Kramer under the Inspector of Hans von Dehn-Rothfelser to the so-called Georgentor. It was the first Renaissance building of Dresden, still before the rebuilding of the residence castle, indeed, with reminiscences to the lombardische architecture.
The building showed with his figure jewellery also religious subjects like the representation of "life and death" and also was therefore expression of Georgs devoutness. Thus the Dresden death dance was a component of the building facade, today this is accommodated in the Epiphany church.
After the destruction by the castle fire in 1701 the health resort-princely or royal rooms were furnished in the Georgenbau in the years 1718 and 1719 by the French Raymond Leplat who also sketched the baroque equipment of the Castle Moritz. Thus the state apartments were there at his time August of the strong. Then till 1730 the complete restoration occurred through Johann Georg Maximilian von Fürstenhoff, the illegitimate son of Johann Georg III (Saxony).
About 1833 a heightening of the Georgentors and from 1866 to 1868 the equipment of the small ballroom occurred. Till 1901 the transformation of the facade occurred in connection with the castle rebuilding in the style of the neorenaissance through Gustav Dunger and Gustav Fröhlich. Besides, the round arch main entrance on the Elbesite (former north main entrance) was moved to the west side in the direction of court church.
The last Saxon king Friedrich August III inhabited the Georgenbau till 1918. After the destruction of the Georgentors by the air raids on Dresden in February, 1945 the building was rebuilt in the middle of the 1960s externally, nevertheless, besides, was changed.

16. Kurländer Palais

The Kurländer Palais were established in 1729 for minister count von Wackerbarth, the field marshal and upper Chief of Staff of the civil engineering under August to the strong. The Gouvernementshouse standing before here was burnt down.
The name "Kurländer Palais" goes back to the Saxon prince Carl, a grandson from August to the strong who lived from 1744 here and was for a short time Herzog of health resort land. Between 1815 and 1864 the surgical-medical academy was accommodated in this house. One of the professors was till 1827 the doctor, naturalist and painter Carl Gustav Carus. The medical academy founded in 1954 of Dresden in the Johannstadt carries his name. A botanical garden on the former embankment area of the city fortress belonged to the surgical-medical academy behind the palace - the predecessors of the today's botanical garden. Professor Ludwig Reichenbach, court gardener Carl Adolf Terscheck and his brother had put on him in 1820. From 1879 Oskar Drude (professor in the botanical institute of the polytechnic) led this equipment. From 1924 to 1945 the land association Saxon home protection had his seat in the Kurländer Palais.
The bomb attacks in February, 1945 left behind from the palace only one ruins. In the time of the GDR the jazz club "Tonne" used the cellar rooms. In the meantime, the reconstruction of the Kurländer Palais has begun.
