    The Neumarkt in Dresden is a square in the inner old town between the Altmarkt and the Elbe. Like Theaterplatz, Schloßplatz and Altmarkt, it is one of the most important squares in Dresden's old town.

    The audience is mixed, vacationers from all over the world, globetrotters and locals experience the new old Dresden together at the Frauenkirche.
    The amazement at what people create together and can rebuild after a destruction is common to all.
    The Frauenkirche was once built by people from all over the world and again supported by many from all over the world:
    "At home and abroad, groups of friends and supporters were formed, people from all parts of Germany and from many other countries put themselves at the service of the reconstruction idea."
    It would be nice if we could develop a feeling of we and tolerance towards others.

    Great ensemble of houses with the dominant Frauenkirche in the center. A visit to the interior and the climb to the tower are worthwhile.

    The memorial to the reformer Martin Luther, who visited Dresden in 1516 and 1517, is on Dresden's Neumarkt, directly in front of the Frauenkirche. The memorial was created by the sculptor Adolf von Donndorf (1835-1916) and it was cast in bronze in the Dresden art and bell foundry Christian Albert Bierling.

    Out of gratitude to the Saxon royal family, citizens of the city commissioned this monument. At his feet, on the sides of the pedestal, are the sculptures of the four cardinal virtues - piety, wisdom, justice and strength.

    Tip for families - a city tour with a difference, so it's also fun for the children: a scavenger hunt with riddles through Dresden, past all the important sights of the old town. Available on the Internet at stadtspiel-schnitzeljagd.de and in a shop in Dresden (more details on the website).
    The set costs around 30, - but is worth every penny! Our son thought it was great that he was able to lead us from one point to the other using the solved puzzles and we enjoyed the small private city tour.

    The Renaissance building originally located here around 1530 was redesigned in 1730/1731 and again in the 19th century. During the air raids on Dresden on 13./14. It was destroyed in February 1945. In its place, the Heinrich Schütz House was rebuilt as a senior citizens' residence in 2007/2008. The outer facades were reconstructed according to the pre-war state and the interior designed in a modern way.

    The Neumarkt in Dresden is a square in the inner old town between the Altmarkt and the Elbe. Like the Theaterplatz, the Schloßplatz and the Altmarkt, it is one of the most important squares in Dresden's old town.The Neumarkt was built in the 16th century after the old city wall was relocated, including the Jüdenhof as a second market square, and was enlarged after the secularization of the Frauenkirchhof in the 18th century. The predominantly baroque buildings on Neumarkt were largely destroyed by the air raids on Dresden in February 1945. After the rubble had been cleared, its borders were lifted and it appeared as a spacious urban open space around the ruins of the Frauenkirche, delimited by the Johanneum, the Kulturpalast and the ruins of the Kurländer Palais. During the clearing of rubble, stable and rebuildable building ensembles were also torn down, such as on Rampische Strasse.Due to the brisk construction activity after German reunification, triggered by the reconstruction of the Frauenkirche, today's square is continuously changing its shape. The new development aims to reconstruct many historical buildings and building floor plans in the Dresden Baroque style, which characterized Neumarkt in the past and which were destroyed by war and subsequent demolition. Originally, a largely modern development was planned by the city with almost no reconstruction (such as the “New Gewandhaus”), citizen protests and the citizens' initiative Gesellschaft Historischer Neumarkt Dresden then pushed through significantly more reconstructions by private builders.

    The Neumarkt was designed very nicely and offers a good connection from the train station to the Altmarkt.

    After war devastation and rubble removal, the area was a huge wasteland for more than half a century.
    In the immediate vicinity of the reconstructed Frauenkirche, the Neumarkt with the adjoining quarters including historical streets is experiencing its rebirth - in a mix of modern architecture and reconstructed facades.

    "His most outstanding musician of his century" - that's what it says on his tombstone. And even today Heinrich Schütz is considered the most important German composer of the early Baroque.
