Annenkirche

Annenkirche

The construction of Dresden’s oldest suburban church was initiated by Electress Anna in the 16th century. Since its inauguration the Annenkirche was constantly rebuilt and thus has a contradictory architectural charm. Originally constructed as a baroque church it was replaced by an art nouveau building in 1909 that has very good acoustics.

Ball- und Brauhaus Watzke

In 1790 a peasant’s pup with brandy distillery was opened in Pieschen that turned into a restaurant with brewery in 1821. Having been acquired by Karl Joseph Watzke in 1838, it remained family-owned. In 1898 the old building was replaced by a ballroom building and Watzke’s concert house and ballroom was born. The ballroom ranks among the biggest and most beautiful ballrooms of the city.

Berliner Philharmonie

The Philharmonie has been the musical heart of Berlin for more than 50 years. Still at the periphery of West Berlin when it opened in 1963, it became part of the new urban centre after the fall of the Berlin Wall. Its unusual tent-like shape and distinctive bright yellow colour makes it one of the city’s landmarks. Its unusual architecture and innovative concert hall design initially ignited controversy, but it now serves as a model for concert halls all over the world.

Festspielhaus Hellerau

Festspielhaus Hellerau

In 1911, the Festspielhaus Hellerau (Hellerau Festival Theatre) was built after a concept of the architect Heinrich Tessenow within the Gartenstadt Hellerau (Garden City) of Dresden. Its architectural clarity gave direction to the Bauhaus style. It was the Swiss music pedagogue Émile Jaques-Dalcroze who initiated the construction of the Festspielhaus and whose »Bildungsanstalt für Musik und Rhythmus« (School for Music and Rhythm) was located in this building. The Festspielhaus is considered a center for contemporary art, especially for dance and music, and therefore is a constant of Dresden's contemporary cultural scene.

GebäudeEnsemble Dt. Werkstätten Hellerau

»Living and working, culture and nature« - following this model the businessman Karl Schmidt and the »German Werkbund« have built the garden city Hellerau and its centerpiece, the »Deutsche Werkstätten Hellerau«, an ensemble of workshops. The idea of the garden city came to founder Karl Schmidt during his years of travel throughout England. The basic idea, to create a balance between city and countryside, of developed and green areas, inspired him, because it provided a connection of living, working, provisioning and leisure possibilities – a concept successfully implemented in Hellerau by the architects Richard Riemerschmid, Hermann Muthesius and Heinrich Tessenow. In 1909/10 a factory producing modern Reformmöbel (furniture) was built after a concept of Richard Riemerschmid. Since the manufacturing centre had moved across the street in 2006, the old buildings with its inner courtyard »Karl-Schmidt« has served as a versatile and popular venue.

Neumarkt

The Neumarkt, or New Market, is the unmistakable and distinctive center of Dresden. Until its destruction in 1945, it was an aesthetic total work of art, a unified, large-scale monument of civic baroque architecture. Constant construction since the German reunification, starting with the reconstruction of the Frauenkirche, has led to continuous changes on the square. Recent building activities are aimed at the reconstruction of many historical buildings that dominated the Neumarkt square in the past.

Originally the entire industrial area was dedicated to military purposes. Its former use as the riding hall of the Royal Saxon Cavalry gave today’s Riding Hall Strasse E® its name. In the early 1990s the area was discovered as an ideal venue for parties and events.
