Two Rubinstein experts have found each other: John Donaldson (on the left)
and Toni Preziuso (right). In between Andreas Saremba who will soon
look again after the BoC database.

During the following tour of the city by bus only a small part of the numerous Dresden sights could be closely looked at. The historical monuments of the old part of Dresden were the centre of attention, they are partly lit with light at this time and therefore have a very impressive effect even on dull November evenings – the small photo selection below may roughly show that.

Dresden Zwinger

The universally known Dresden "Zwinger" (entrance) – a masterpiece of the courtly baroque
– originally laid out as an orangery for August the Strong.

Catholic Court Church

The Catholic Court Church on the Theaterplatz

Procession of Princes

The famous "Fürstenzug" [Procession of Princes] –
800 years of Dresden history on Meissen china tiles!


The enchanting Coselpalais –
a baroque Grand Café and restaurant near the "Frauenkirche"

Mrs Thieme - our guide

Our guide Mrs Thieme had to summarize the Dresden building history in a nutshell.
