"Perfection is already there when the necessary is done, beauty when the necessary is accomplished, yet hidden." Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749 - 1832)
The baroque was a style epoch, most people know. Less is known that there was a Dresden Baroque. Time is this between 1694 to 1763 classified. Historically, therefore, it is not surprising that it is popularly known as the Augustan Baroque. This specific form of baroque and rococo was shaped by the Saxon Elector August the Strong and his son Friedrich. And it is not surprising that we will encounter these historic figures several times in Dresden on our trips with electric carriages.All buildings so well-known for Dresden go back to this time. Including the well-known buildings, such as the Zwinger and the Frauenkirche. Less in the tourist focus, but no less beautiful, are also buildings such as the "Catholic Hofkirche" in front of the Residenzschloss for this epoch. On our tour many of the Baroque sights get to know, as well as the Brühlsche terraces as an expression of landscape gardening of this time.
