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.

We didn't find it too interesting, but it is a totally different side of Dresden and therefore worthwhile for a stroll.

The place is absolutely fantastic. Plenty of shops, bars, restaurants, a few monuments and a nice and big park. In summer people just sit around on the crossings and the ambient is just great. Visiting Dresden and not wandering around this area can't be called a visit. The BRN (bunte Republik Neustadt) in June brings, all at once, the whole... More

I stayed in the Neustadt and it was a nice relaxed place to wander. Some of the street art is fantastic and there are many nice cafes and bars in the area too. It is far quieter and more relaxed than Altstadt as the tourists are busy checking out the old town but at night is the place to be... More

If you are staying in the old town remember to cross the River Elbe and go over to the new town to see the lovely antique, craft, leather and other shops in this lovely area. Visit the food market too. Don't miss this part of Dresden.
