Quality of life in Dresden
Dresden’s locals lovingly call their city “Florence on the Elbe”. And rightly so, because the city stands out with its numerous historic sights, an exceptionally wide range of art and culture and plenty of charm. The Frauenkirche, the Semperoper, the Green Vault Museums, the trendy Neustadt neighbourhood and the picturesque Elbe Valley – it’s so easy to relax and while away the hours in Dresden.
And those are just some of the reasons why the capital of Saxony has been a very attractive location for real estate buyers for many years. The real estate market in Dresden is booming and still has plenty of potential for private and commercial buyers and investors in almost all price and furnishing categories. As local, experienced real estate agents, Pentagon Immobilien understands this potential very well.
Green in the heart of the city
With its ample green parks and sprawling green meadows on the banks of the Elbe, the city doesn’t just provide its residents with a high level of recreational value but also a very attractive quality of living. Tenants and property owners alike can choose from elegant villas looking out on to the river, well-preserved or reconstructed apartments, houses surrounded by lush nature or low-priced, renovated modern apartments – Dresden has something to suit every person and style.
Juxtaposition of modern and baroque
In Dresden, you often find old and new right next to each other. Whether it’s a dream apartment in one of the popular baroque or nineteenth-century districts or real estate property in the inner city. Townhouses are the most common type of private residential buildings found in the city centre – multi-storey terraced houses that combine a maximum amount of living space for the smallest possible plot size. They typically comprise two contrasting aspects – prestigious façades looking out on to the street and private places of retreat such as rooftop terraces or small gardens to the rear of the house. But private residential property in the inner city can also come in the shape of lofts, maisonette apartments or houses within inner courtyards. As diverse as the real estate options in Dresden are, they all have one thing in common – an individual design that nevertheless blends in perfectly with the cityscape.
Dresden’s excellent infrastructure
On top of all this, Dresden also boasts an efficient infrastructure and a well-developed public transport system. Numerous urban railways, trams and bus routes connect the city’s neighbourhoods with each other and with Dresden’s charming surroundings as well as transporting countless commuters to work every day.
Dresden is one of Germany’s leading hubs for business and industry. A lot of investments have been made into advanced technology and the associated research – with great success. In a relatively short time, the city has developed to become one of the leading locations in the fields of microelectronics, nanotechnology, new materials and life sciences. Leading global companies are based in Dresden.
Despite its world-famous tourist attractions, Dresden, with its host of baroque treasures, is by no means an “old” city – 45,000 students also add life to the historic streets and districts.
