We wandered over here and were pleasantly surprised. Lots of cute little random shops (artsy, rock/stones) and cheaper prices for things like the bakery. It did feel a little alternative ( think college-ages skateboarders with graffiti, etc) but that was my first impression. I still really liked it!

By far one of the most interesting places to hang out in Dresden, you can find not so expensive bars and restaurants and the coolest sushi chef in a little place near the musical buildings, half a day is enough to see what's there.

My wife and I happened to wander into this area looking for a restaurant that was closed, unfortunately. Following friendly directions, we walked on and passed an old Jewish cemetery, surprised that it still existed. Walking on further we suddenly found ourselves on a street filled with restaurants and young people. Many of them were simply sitting out in the... More

While in Dresden we thought that Neustadt was the perfect hideout to balance the city center's Baroque cultural classics. Nice to linger through the streets filled with alternative shops and fun places to eat.

The Neustadt area of dresden is full of college age people constantly out and about. There are many bars, restaurants and parks that are constantly filled with people. It makes for a great escape from the stoic and touristy Altstadt side of the river. Check it out.

Many fine restaurants and boutique shops, as well as mainstream shops in the Hoch strasse, a splendid broad pedestrian way with plane trees.

New only in the sense that most of it is 17th century as oppose to 16th. Lots of sights to see on this side of the river - The Golden Rider, The Dresden Romantic museum, the 3 Kings Church and the prettiest dairy in the world (see Guinness Book of Records), to name but a few. The tree shaded Hauptstrasse... More

The wide streets and architecture of the old DDR make this an interesting contrast worth crossing the river for. It is of course much smarter than in DDR days but it does provide a different aspect to Dresden that is worth seeing

We first saw the Neustadt in daylight and thought it was a rundown part of town, how wrong we were. Visit the Neustadt after dark and it lights up. Cool bars with loads of young people socialising in candlelit bars, chalkboard walls and narrow streets. We are retuning later in the year and have booked a hotel in the Neustadt... More

Neustadt was spared the bombing which wiped out large parts of Dresden and in the DDR times it was a place where young people lived because it was cheap. It's now become THE place to live and be. Lots of artistic court yards, pubs and restraunts. Don't miss it.
