Today the Neustädter Baroque Quarter is one of the most beautiful areas in Dresden. Downright close to the centre of town but still secluded enough. It is a place to live and work, trade and stop off at one of the many restaurants, pubs and cafés.
The small stores, galleries, ateliers, boutiques, jewellery workshops and restaurants are operated by the owners themselves. They set a focus on excellent recommendation, quality and service. Dresden residents lovingly compare the quarter with the 'Gute Stube' (front parlour) of Dresden.
A creative atmosphere invites visitors to stroll, wonder and rest. No place else in Dresden unites this many artistic, cultural, enjoyable and individual locations in such small area: pub close to top-quality restaurant, second hand and vintage clothing next to custom tailors and artist's studios besides museums.
