GEH8 in „111 Orte in Dresden, die man gesehen haben muss”


“What happened to Europe’s largest abattoir? What does the molar of a woolly rhinoceros have to do with a prefabricated housing estate? And why has “Elektro-Könner” never opened? You think you know Dresden? Of course, the highlights of Elbflorenz are visited by tens of thousands of tourists every year. The dome of the Frauenkirche, the angels of the Sistine Madonna and the golden crown on the Zwinger are known the world over. In contrast, hardly anyone knows that Dresden is home to the world’s first carbon concrete house. Do you have any idea what the “Codex Dresdensis” is all about, have you ever been to Edward-Snowden-Platz and do you know what the cyanometer in front of the Technical Collections in the Striesen district measures? Dresden has much more to offer than its baroque showpiece if you look closely.”

The GEH8 has also found its place among 110 other must-see places in Dresden. If you want to discover new exciting corners, whether as a tourist or as a resident of Dresden … this book is sure to contain many surprises that were not previously on your radar!
