The former Kraftwerk Dresden-Mitte, an imposing industry complex from the 19th century, has changed into a unique location of art, culture and creativity, right in the heart of Dresden. Thanks to being only a short walking distance away from the inner city, the location is excellent and impresses with remarkable architecture, which combines brick buildings protected as historic monuments with modern construction.
There, where only about 100 years ago, energy for the capital of Saxony was produced, are not just the Dresden State Operetta and the Theatre of the Young Generation Dresden at home, but also the University of Music »Carl Maria von Weber« and the Heinrich Schuetz Conservatory. Right now, the area is also used by the art scene and gastronomy. In the following years, more buildings will be renovated to create a lively new centre for Dresden.
