"not quite a mosque but close" Yenidze Tip by richiecdisc
Yenidze, Dresden: 13 reviews and 25 photos
The Yenidze is one of Dresden?s more unusual buildings and certainly adds to the already impressive skyline. Built in 1908 in the form of a mosque it was originally a cigarette factory and was named after the company and derived from a city name in what is today Macedonia. Its architect Martin Hammitzsch came up with the tobacco mosque motif at the suggestion of the company?s owner, who was of Turkish descent. It was restored to its former glory in 1996 after some years of disuse and now is a multiuse facility housing offices, a restaurant with a fantastic view and a unique beer garden. But perhaps its most interesting aspect is in the basement where fairy tales are reenacted in the evening.
Address: Weisseritzstrasse 3
Directions: You can see it from the Elbe and even parts of the Old Town center. It's a bit of a walk to get there but a nice one if you go along the Elbe.
