Blasewitz and also neighbouring Striesen belonged to the preferred living quarters in the late 19th and early 20th century. Wealthy Dresdeners built their villas here. Since both quarters survived World War II remarkably well, they still show their late 19th century appearance with large pretty villas and gardens. These two photos were taken at random while waiting at a tram stop in Loschwitzer Straße.

A number of private owners have recently turned their villas into small hotels or B&B's (Pensionen) or rent out self catered holiday apartments. If you want to stay in a quiet area outside, but not too far outside, the city centre with good public transport connections, Blasewitz and Striesen are highly recommended.
