In the sentence

«Wir sind zur neuen Wohnung gefahren»

I think zur=zu +der, with der = die+dativ termination, and neuen = neu+fem termination in dativ.

However, since we're fahren (wohin), shouldn't we have used akkusativ instead?


The “wohin” rule that you are alluding is to for deciding whether to use accusative or dative with a two-way preposition. But “zu” is not a two-way preposition, it always goes with dative.
