17. The Cross Church

In her history the cross church has been destroyed by city fires and war effects several times, but has anew been built up over and over again.
In 1215 one founded the Nikolaichurch, named after the holy Nikolaus, the patron saint of the traders and skippers. 1388 it was anew consecrated as a cross church. In her took place 1539 first Lutheran services of Dresden. From in 1579-1584 a steeple with the impressive height of 90 metres was established. The cross church was completely destroyed by the bombardment of the Prussian army of 1760, during the seven-year-old war. Nevertheless, the nearly intact tower collapsed in 1765 with the new building of the church. In 1792 the renewed inauguration of the cross church whose reconstruction was concluded in 1800, in the end occurred. An other destruction occurred in February, 1945 with the bombardment of the city during the second world war. The reconstruction lasted from in 1946-1955 and the faithful external reconstruction stood in the foreground.
In the turning time of 1989 the peace and protest services in whose connection demonstrations followed for a state and political renewal took place in the cross church. The cross church is the Protestant main church of the city of Dresden and accommodation of the world-famous Dresden cross choir. From her visitorplatform in the tower one has an impressive overview about the city with her places of interest.

18. City Hall Dresden

The draughts for the new city hall in Dresden arose from the architecture competition in 1901. The architect Karl Roth (1875–1932) from Darmstadt received one of four prices for his contribution. Thus draught originated on the basis of Roths after a new project from 1905 to 1910 the city hall new building under the common construction management of the architects Karl Roth and Edmund Bräter (1855–1925).
The laying of the foundation stone for the new city hall occurred on the 29th September, 1905 for what also the king of Saxony did three hammer beating. In 1908 was the shell with sandstone facade and the high roofs was concluded. Then the following two years was worked on the artistic interior equipment.
In the bomb attacks in February, 1945 the new city hall was destroyed by Dresden so hard that his reconstruction amounted to a new building. Besides, the artistic painting of the halls could not be restored. The new city hall Dresden was rebuilt from 1948 by Emil Leibold in simplistic form. In 1952 one finished the complex in the Dr. Külz Ring. 1962–1965 the new construction of the hall wing followed by Herbert Terpitz, Manfred Arlt and group, (interior creation: Theo Wagenführ). The interior equipment of the new plenary hall was incumbent upon light rough workshops. Walther Reinhold created in 1967 the "Trümmerfrauen", a larger-than-life plastic which should remind of many women who cleared away the mountains of brick rubble in the destroyed city after 1945.
The city hall tower is 100.20 m high, the view platform is at 68-m height. The city hall clock has a diameter of 4 m. The golden “Rathausmann” on the tower has a height of 4.90 m. From the spring till autumn view platform as well as the tower station in the 7-th upper floor and the tower cabinet in the 11-th upper floor with the exhibits invite Dresden and guests of the city. From the visitor's platform at 68-metre height a view of completely Dresden, the river scenery of the Elbe and with good view comes up till Sächsische Schweiz.


The probably unfortunately best known and sadest picture after 2 world wars. Dresden in rubble and cinder.

20. Palais Prinz Georg

The "Palais Prinz Georg" was put on from 1676 for the health resort prince and later elector Johann Georg III than hunting garden with star-shaped road net. From 1678 built uplands master builders Johann Georg Starcke under coordination with the garden plannings by Johann Friedrich Karcher „Palais in the big garden“ (also: „Palais Großer Garten“). Round this centre formed freight hauliers in a cart the big garden from 1684 under Johann Georg III with right-angled road net and avenues in a pleasure garden in the style of the French baroque around.
In 1813 his encirclement wall was broken off and the stones for the reconstruction were used by Striesen. After deduction of the French and removal of the war damages he became in 1814 on order of the Russian general governor at that time in Saxony, released Repnin-Wolkonski for the population.
Then from 1873 the young garden manager Johann Carl appointed anew to Dresden Friedrich Bouché converted the big garden under retention of many baroque basic structures into a scenery garden in the „mixed style“ of the so-called „Lenné Meyer school“.

Why has Dakir been banned?

I tried to make some form of sense from the discussion in the Dresden subform, and failed.
