Albertinum (Lichthof)

The solution of bridging the interior courtyard of the Albertinum with a workshop and depot complex is technically spectacular and aesthetically unique. A steel truss bears the weight of the new two-storey building, which is 60 metres long and weighs 2,700 tons. Since 2010, the space presents itself to the visitor like a light-flooded atrium which also offers room for events and concerts. Thus, not only painting and sculpture meet at the Albertinum, but also visual arts and music.

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.

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.

Konzerthaus Berlin

The Konzerthaus Berlin was designed by Karl Friedrich Schinkel and built on Berlin’s Gendarmenmarkt square between 1818 and 1821. The masterwork of classicistic architecture was already graced by the presence of some of the most important artists of the 19th century, including Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy, Franz Liszt, Niccolò Paganini and Richard Wagner. After the fall of Berlin’s Wall, Leonard Bernstein conducted Beethoven’s Ninth there, featuring the legendary »Ode to Freedom«. To this day, the building has lost none of its fame and glamour.

The concert location »Weißer Hirsch« (White Stag) is one of the most legendary and romantic places in Dresden. As part of the former spa »Weißer Hirsch«, it delighted not only its residents back in the day, but its concerts, which took place three to four times a week, also attracted other tourists, who came in the thousands to take the waters at the time. In 2009, Stefan Hermann revived the location, and today many different events take place at the band shell, which is surrounded by one of Dresden’s most attractive beer gardens.

Kulturpalast (Concert Hall)

The reconception of the Kulturpalast (Culture Palace) as home of a concert hall, the Municipal Central Library and the cabaret »Herkuleskeule« repositions the building from the late 1960s, which recently underwent five years of reconstruction, in its original role as a cultural meeting-place at the heart of Dresden. In the central interior space, a modern, acoustically high-end concert hall of European stature has been installed – an element Dresden previously lacked entirely. This space offers seating for 1,757 visitors. Thanks to the renovation of the Kulturpalast, the new Central Library (formerly split into the Main, Music and Youth Libraries) also has a home in the heart of the city. This new place dedicated to information exchange and communication offers approximately 5,500 square metres of public space, including a versatile event space.

In 2001, on the anniversary of the destruction Dresden’s old synagogue on November 9, 1938, the New Synagogue was consecrated after more than 60 years – a sacred building consisting of a cube twisted upon itself towards the East, the direction of prayers towards Jerusalem.

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.
