The Alstadt across the river is a tourist area. Here the locals live, shop, visit galleries and dine in local establishments. The Neustadt is only a few years newer than the Altstadt, has many narrow walkways leading into inner courtyards with restuarants / shops, and architecturally varied.

Lots of bars, restaurants. Arts and craft stores, jewelry and funky shops. Young neighborhood with kindergartens, junior and middle schools. A small group of farm animals including goats, a horse, roosters, and rabbits in the middle of the neighborhood.

Neustadt isn't an attraction, it's a neighborhood (new city or town). It's a short trolley ride from the old town and there are a wealth of things to see and do - lots of neat restaurants open air markets and cool places to shop.

Spent a day here after walking across the Augustus Bridge from Old Town and exploring this part of Dresden. While we found it to be pedestrian friendly, there were only a few attractions that warranted attention. Immediately after leaving the bridge, you encounter a small square and the bright, golden statue of Augustus II. Off to the right is the... More

There is lots to see and enjoy in the Neustadt. We particularly liked the covered food market where one stall sells several hundred types of tea. There are plenty of restaurants and cafes and it is nice to stroll along the wide promenades.

People visit Dresden for the old town. That's fair enough. But if you have time to relax and are travelling from Prague to Berlin I would suggest to stay for a few days or perhaps even a whole week in Dresden Neustadt (and the neighbouring Hechtviertel!!). It is like a modern village in a city. There are plenty of nice... More

Visiting this part of town gives you a nice impression how the city of Dresden expanded after it started.

Returning to Dresden after 20 years this area seems to be the happening place to be. With a wide variety of shop, restaurants and bars catering for all needs. Its also a lot, lot cheaper than around the main attractions. Great place to visit and chill!!!!
