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.
