Dresden New Market

Dresden New Market


Historic centre of Dresden city centre

The Neumarkt in Dresden is one of the central squares in the old town between the Altmarkt and the Elbe. It was created after the city wall was moved in the 16th century and was used as a second market square. During the air raid in February 1945, the buildings, most of which were built in the Baroque style, were largely destroyed. As part of the extensive reconstruction measures after reunification in 1990, Neumarkt changed its face considerably. Numerous historical buildings were reconstructed, after the city had initially only planned to build modern buildings. However, due to strong protests by citizens’ initiatives and the commitment of private builders, some of the old buildings could be rebuilt.
