DRESDEN.



D,



resden perhaps takes its name from Drjezdjenje, mean-
ing the dwellers in a swampy forest village; was probably settled
by the Sorb Vandals, where the Frauenkirche now is being the
nucleus. Its neighborhood was doubtless fortiefied before 12C0 A. D.
In 1216 it is mentioned as a city or town.

Since 1485 it has been the residence of the Albertine royal
line; was greatly embellished under Augustus II and III. Historical
events which took place at Dresden are : Peace of Dresden (De-
cember 25th, 1745'; Victorv of Napoleon over the Bohemian
armv (August 26th and 27th, 1813); Fight on the barricades
'May 3rd to 9th, 1849) ; Dresden Conference (December 23rd,
185U to May 15th, 1851).

Dresden, the capital of the Kingdom of Saxony, called the
"Elbe Florence", is situated on bolh banks of the Elbe, which is
navigable from Hamburg up as far as Leitmeritz in Bohemia.
The right side (going down stream) comprises the Neiistadt with
its suburbs, Antonstadt, Leipziger Vorstadt and Albertstadt; the
left side the Altstadt, including the American and English, the
so-called Russian, the Swiss and the Bavarian "quarters".

Owing to its charming situation and its valuable collections
(the finest of which is the splendid picture gallery), it has be-
come one of the most attractive of European capitals. It is one
of the roomiest cities in the world. The present building laws
are very stringent, allowing in certain quarters only villas, and
nowhere permitting the erection, in any street, of a building
higher than the street is wide. The principal streets are 40 metres
=■ 131 feet wide, and the new side streets 20 metres. It presents

to strangers tiie impression of being "larger inside than out".
It couritif now o\er oOO.OOO inhabitants, and boasts of an always
augmenting English and Ame-'ican colony, to the tastes of which
officials ar'd irades people pay especial attention. The city lies
110 metres ^^ 361 ft. above ihe sea. Mean annual temperature
about 12" C. = 53,6" F. == 9V," R.



MANUFACTURES.

Dresden and its immediate vicinity are a very active in-
dustrial centre. The principal manufactures are: cigarettes,
chocolate and bonbons, straw braid, artificial flowers, and feather
ornaments. The King Albert harbor affords good loading and
unloading facilities. Yearly 4000 boats go up stream and 4000
boats and rafts down stream; placing the Elbe first in rank
among German rivers in this particular.



CITY DIVISIONS.

The Elbe practically divides the town into two portions,
although five bridges make good communication between them.
Besides these two grand divisions there are minor and more
merely nominal sub-divisions.

West of Altstadt proper is the Wilsdniffer Vorstadt (In-
dustrial!; further west, bevond the railway viaduct, Friedrichstadt,
200 years old.

East of Altstadt proper is the Pirnaisdie Vorstadt; east
of the latter, the Johann -Vorstadt and Striesen; south-east,
Strehlen. South are the See- and the Siid-Vorstadte.

The English quarter lies in the Seevorstadt, north of the
railway and east of Pragerstrasse.

The American and Bavarian quarters are south of the
railway and east of Reichsstrasse; the Swiss quarter south of
the railway and west of Reichsstrasse; these two constituting
the Si'idvorstadt.

Neiistadt proper was nearly wiped out by fire in 1685,
Hauptstrasse and Konigstrasse, built after this, owe their beauty
to Augustus the Strong. The eastern part of Neustadt was once
nearly covered by military establishments— now supplanted by
finer ones in the Albertstadt and elsewhere; their site being
now a fine residence quarter.

Antonstadt is north and cast of Neustadt, and separated
therefrom by a broad belt of villas marking the site of the



- 3 -

former fortifications. It was originally a Bohemian settlement
or quarter.

The Leipziger Vorstadt lies west of Neustadt. Piesdien
is north of this. The Albertstadt, on a hill on the Neustadt
side, north-east, is a military settlement over 1'/., miles long.



RAILWAYS AND DEPOTS.

(Bahnhofe.)

Dresden has four railway stations.

In Altstadt: di HaiiptbahnJiof (K 14) tor trains to and
from Saxon Switzerland, Tetschen-Bodenbach, Prague and Vienna,
Tharandt, Freiberg, Chemnitz, Reichenbach and Hof; Berlin via
Roderau; Leipzig, Meissen &c.; (2! Berliner or Friedrichstadter
Bahnhof (G 10) in Friedrichstadt (Berlinerstr.) for direct trains
to Berlin via Zossen ; Wettiner Bahnhof, Konneritz and Wettiner-
strasse (J 10) near the market house. (Fast trains do not stop
here.) The Hauptbahnhof is one of the finest in Europe; with
its approaches it cost 85 million marks.

In Neustadt: (4) Neiistadter Bahnhof (L, M 8) (Grossen-
hainerstr.) for Leipzig and for Berlin via Roderau and Elster-
werda. There are many "shuttle" trains connecting this with the
Hauptbahnhof.

Both first-class and second-class droschkys and Dienstmen
or Gepacktrager are in attendance at all stations. Special officials
at the exit doors give checks ("Droschkenmarke") for which
10 Pf. must be paid, indicating v.hich droschky is to be taken.
These officials wear blue caps with gold band.

The railway porters in the station are not allowed to carry
baggage to hotels or other destinations outside the station; for
this purpose the outside "dienstmen" must be engaged. Their
tariff is given on page 9.

Porters from the principal hotels are also in waiting.

A. Kohn's Tourist Office Christianstr. 31.



ROUND TRIP TICKETS.

(Rundreise - Billets.)

Cheap tickets for routes selected by the traveller (no free
baggage) to be had in the Osthalle, Hauptbahnhof.



STEAMBOATS.

(Dampfer.)

There are two lines of fast river steamers with about 40
boats on the Elbe. Upstream boats leave the Terrassenufer^
foot of Briihl'sche Terrasse (L 11) for Loschwitz and Blasewitz,
for Pima 8 to 10 trips; Wehlen'^), Rathen - ), Konigstein (Saxon
Switzerland) 6 to 7 trips; Tetschen and Aussig Bohemia] 5 to
7 trips. They touch at Karlstrasse, Neustadt.

Downstream boats leaving also on Terrassenufer , depart
for Meissen 9 times and to and from Riesa 4 times daily. Miihl-
berg-Strehla 3 times.

There are first- and second-class cabins. On deck first- and
second-class passengers have precisely the same accommodations,
except that the former are covered with a canopy which makes
the first-class deck -places sometimes less enjoyable than the
second.

Some of the boats are double-deckers, and are to be pre-
ferred. In Summer there are "concert boats" daily in the after-
noon, which go up stream beyond Pillnitz and return; these do
not make local landings.

Detailed time-tables are printed.

The rates are about half those by rail.

First-class monthly tickets (not transferrable) iM. 20 for the
first member, M. 12 for the other members of a family for the
whole trip from Leitmeritz-Dresden-Miihlberg.

Season tickets between M. 35 and 85 according to the
distances. Subscription tickets (10 to 20 in number) at reduces
prices. (Children -j,. of the price.)

The scenery, except between Pirna and Pillnitz, is beautifuK

Going upstream one notes especially the villas of Losch-
witz; the King's Summer or pleasure palace at Pillnitz; the old
castle Sonnenstein (now an asylum) at Pirna; the sandstone
rocks of Wehlen, Rathen and Schandau and the fortress of
Konigstein, with the Lilienstein nearly apposite.

Going downstream, one is attracted by the Lossnitz vine-
yards, the hills of Siebeneichen, Spaar- and Hirschstein and the



=■) Landings for the Bastei.

It is customary but not necessary to 'tip" the conductor 5 Pf.
except when presenting an "Umsteigebillet" for the second time.

The route of each car is painted on a lengthwise overhead
sign on each side; the objectixe point is given on an overhead
number at each end.

Inside, the direction of travel is indicated by arrows on a
sign over each lengthwise seat.

The "direction" signs are changed at the end of each trip.

The Haltestellen or stopping places of each line are indi-
cated by red street signs respectively.

Tramway time-tables can be purchased for 10 Pf. and are
desirable, because towards the last trip alternate cars in some
lines do not go to the terminal indicated by the signs, but to
the car-barns.

Monthly, quarterly or yearly (untransferrable) season tickets
may be purchased for any, or for all lines; and are to be
recommended when one makes the same ride at least once in
each direction, daily.
