Katholische Hofkirche, Dresden Katholische Hofkirche, Dresden Katholische Hofkirche, Dresden Katholische Hofkirche, Dresden

The Katholische Hofkirche, (English: The Catholic Church of the Royal Court of Saxony) was built in 1751 having been commissioned by Frederick Augustus II, Elector of Saxony and King of Poland while the Protestant city of Dresden built the Frauenkirche (Church of Our Lady) between 1726 and 1743. The Elector decided that a catholic church was needed in order to counterbalance the Protestant Frauenkirche. The architect was Gaetano Chiaveri. The church was badly damaged during the bombing of Dresden in World War II and was restored during the mid-1980s under the East German regime.

Centrum Galerie, Dresden Centrum Galerie, Dresden Centrum Galerie, Dresden Centrum Galerie, Dresden Centrum Galerie, Dresden

The former GDR ‘Centrum’ department store was designed by Hungarian architects Ferenc Simon and Ivan Fokvari and built in 1978 making first use of the distinctive honeycomb facade. It was converted to a Karstadt after the fall of Communism. Karstadt later moved across the street to a new, larger building and the Centrum building was demolished in spring 2007 so a new, huge mall, ‘Centrum Galerie’, could be built on the site. The rebuilding was undertaken by Peter Kulka Architektur Dresden.

Glockenspiel Pavilion and surrounding buildings of the Zwinger

The Zwinger is a palace in Dresden, eastern Germany, built in Rococo style and designed by court architect Matthäus Daniel Pöppelmann. It served as the orangery, exhibition gallery and festival arena of the Dresden Court.

The buildings were ruined in February 1945, during the Anglo-American bombing of Dresden. Reconstruction, supported by the Soviet military administration, began in 1945; parts of the restored complex were opened to the public in 1951. By 1963 the Zwinger had largely been restored to its pre-war state.
