Neustadt, Dresden: 50 reviews and 144 photos
This church was built by famous architect Pöppelmann (Zwinger) in Baroque style 1732-39. The interior was redone according to plans of George Bähr (Frauenkirche) In Feb 1945 it burnt out completely and was restored in 1994. It has been home for the first Saxon Parliament for a couple of years after the wall came down.
A must see is the "Dresdner Totentanz" (death dance), an embossment made by Christoph Walter I. 1534-35. Have a look at the Baroque altar (1738) as well. Finally you should go up on the tower to enjoy the panoramic views of the city. A word of advice: For best pictures of the old town's shilhouette - right in the south - go up early or late, or in June when the sun is high above horizon at noon.
Directions: Inner Neustadt.
