The heart and tourist magnet of Dresden is the rebuilt Frauenkirche in the centre of the old town. The monumental Protestant church building is the old and new landmark of the city.

Built between 1726 and 1743, destroyed on 13 and 14 February 1945, it has been rebuilt since the nineties of the 20th century by a large amount of donations. The new consecration took place in 2005.

In the course of the reconstruction of the Frauenkirche, the surrounding Neumarkt was also gradually reconstructed. After the Second World War, the most important inner-city square next to the Altmarkt with the symbolic ruins of the Frauenkirche remained almost untouched for half a century. Then a lively building activity sets in, quarter by quarter the typical baroque gabled houses are rebuilt. With Neumarkt, Dresden regains its new old city centre.

The procession of princes connects Neumarkt with Schlossplatz behind the Residenzschloss.
The 101-metre-long mural made of Meissen porcelain tiles depicts the rulers of the House of Wettin as a cavalcade.
The residence palace was first built in the late 15th century as the new power centre of the Saxon electors and kings and was rebuilt after a fire in 1701 under August the Strong.
After its destruction in the Second World War, it was reconstructed in 1985 as a museum complex of the Dresden State Art Collections, and was completed in 2013.

Since then the castle has housed the Historical and the New Green Vaults, the Kupferstich-Kabinett, the Rüstkammer mit der Türckischen Cammer and the Münzkabinett.
