"From the Baroque Quarter to trendy Outer Neustadt"

If you already know the historic old town – Dresden continues on the other bank of the river Elbe – and it’s just as beautiful and fascinating!

We start from the „Golden Rider“ – the gilded equestrian statue of Augustus the Strong, Duke of Saxony and King of Poland, who ordered the “New King’s Town” to be built in the 18th century. We walk along a beautiful plane tree avenue, called Haupstraße (Main street). Much has been originally preserved: Elegant patrician buildings, artisan arcades, secluded courtyards.

Special highlights:
Dreikönigskirche (Three King’s Church), historic Market Hall, Societaetstheater (original baroque theatre building), artisan arcades, Königsstraße, Japanese Palais and Albertplatz.

At the close of the 19th century Dresden grew rapidly due to industrial development and the increasing population – so a new quarter was created 150 years ago, in an era we call Foundation period (Gründerzeit): Outer Neustadt. Its architecture has some of the finest examples of period houses in Europe.

Today Outer Neustadt is the trendy and multicolored center of alternative culture, art and nightlife.

Highlights of Outer Neustadt:
Kunsthofpassagen (artisan courtyards), Martin-Luther-Platz, Pfund‘s Molkerei (mentioned in the Guinness Book of Records as the most beautiful dairy shop in the world), the old Jewish cemetery and lots of interesting people from the whole world.
