Dresden Neumarkt in June 2012 - (Source: (cityscope + Landeshauptstadt Dresden)

On 1 April 2012, Swissôtel Dresden Am Schloss (Swissôtel's fourth property in Germany) will open its doors to guests. Set in the capital of Saxony, the hotel is right in the centre of the culturally rich Dresden, which has a long history as the royal residences of past kings. Situated within the painstakingly restored Neumarkt, Swissôtel Dresden forms part of the "8 Quarters" which have been reconstructed to give an outward appearance consistent with its rich heritage.

The new exclusive Deluxe Hotel Swissôtel Dresden Am Schloss lies in the centre of the historical old town of Dresden. Its central location, great shopping, entertainment and nearby historic sights such as the Residenzschloss, the Turkish Chamber, the Semper Opera, Zwinger Palace and the Frauenkirche make Swissotel Dresden the perfect gateway to the city's business and culture. Swissotel Dresden's historic facade houses stylishly modern interior design, with cutting-edge technology and the warmth of Swiss hospitality, promising 235 elegant rooms & suites. more Information:

The Neumarkt – a centre of successful reconstruction
Building at Dresden's Frauenkirche – Quartier III/2
Quartier III/2 – 8,804 square meters of history and the future at one exclusive location.
More information:

The Dresden city centre has changed its appearance over the course of 2006.
The diamond of the Frauenkirche is to be placed back in its original setting: Dresden's historical heart is currently being reborn around the Neumarkt, partly with old facades, partly with discreetly modern frontage. The latest status of the building work is documented by a live webcam mounted on the Kulturpalast cultural centre. In September 2006, the Quartier QF opened its doors. Three floors of restaurants, fashion boutiques, shops and a Five-Star Boutique Hotel are to tempt visitors with typically Saxon and Italian products. Immediately alongside the reconstructed Coselpalais, and opposite the apse of the Frauenkirche, building work is progressing on the Quartier II, which constitutes for the most part reconstructions of magnificent Baroque townhouses, insofar as historical drawings and documentation were able to serve as source material. Restaurants offering Saxon and international cuisine are here to accompany small shops offering high-quality tourist products and souvenirs. The opening is planned for the beginning of 2007.

Construction Stone Letters
The GHND has begun the campaign "Construction Stone Letters for Rampische Strasse 29". This first campaign is intended to cover a portion of the rebuilding costs of the example reconstruction of the baroque bourgeois house at Rampische Strasse 29.

Construction Stone Letters are being offered beginning May 5, 2004 from 10 euros up to 7,500 euros apiece and can be obtained in the Society's information pavilion in the Galeriestrasse or through the internet under

The following individual building elements are being offered:

10 euros - for one of the 4,150 roof tiles
100 euros - for ½ square meter of a gable end
250 euros - for 1 square meter of façade wall
500 euros - for one of the 115 steps in the staircase
2,500 euros - for one of the 27 windows with sandstone framing in the façade of walls facing Salzgasse and in the inner courtyard
7,500 euros for one of the 6 windows with sandstone framing facing the Rampische Strasse

Donors will be recorded in a book dedicated especially for this purpose. At the end of the reconstruction, it will be handed over to the City Archives. For sums over 500 euros, donors will, in addition, be memorialized on a donors' plaque affixed to the house. Donations are tax deductible under German tax laws. Givers subject to the laws of other countries should consult their own tax advisers regarding deductibility.
