Waldschlösschen Bridge

1 Sep


A quick note on the newly opened Waldschlösschen Bridge, which sparked so much controversy and eventually had Dresden’s Elbe Valley removed from UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites: it turns out the bridge is neither spectacular nor especially disturbing. It really is a rather inconspicious construction and certainly not what one would expect considering the great controversy and amount of money that went into it. It does not take away much of the panorama towards town nor does it disturb the view towards Blaues Wunder. However this town has seen better architectural achievements.

Lange Nacht der Industrie Dresden

19 Jul

First Lange Nacht der Industrie Dresden, 3 July: Our family of three taking a guided tour around the Druck- and Verlagshaus Dresden (no photos allowed inside). A bus came to pick us up Theaterplatz and drove us to the print house, where we first attended a presentation and then were lead through the printing plant where the workers and machines were just beginning to take up work. Afterwards we enjoyed the night air and a short walk along the Terrassenufer.
