[Translate to English:] Intro

Between the Frauenkirche and the Brühlsche Terrasse an impressive building for the arts was constructed in the 19th century. Today the Kunsthalle is a plase for special exhibitions as well as for viewing and discussing contemporary art.

A special place

With its glass dome – nicknamed the “lemon squeezer” on account of its form – the building is a prominent feature on Dresden’s skyline. When it was first built the “lemon squeezer” was highly controversial because it was seen as rivalling the dome of the Frauenkirche. Today, however, it is regarded as an enrichment to the city’s historic Altstadt.
