Absolutely worth a visit. The Museum houses an amazing exhibition of decadent, opulence, unbelievable excess and it is magnificent! I was limited in my available time so an extensive visit was not to be, however I did thoroughly enjoy my time there. The workmanship on...More

In 1991--shortly after reunification-- we visited Dresden and the ONLY Green Vault, which was in the Zwinger at the time. In November, 2018, we visited both the "Historic" and the "Neues" Green Vaults. The Neues Green Vault is far, far better than the Historic Green...More

Apparently there are 2, and I visited the old one. The displays and the reconstruction are both interesting. The ivory and gems rooms were probably the most interesting, but the whole place was worthwhile, and the audio guide is informative

Most likely this is one of the top three sights in Dresden. You may see lots of precious treasures collected by the Saxonian Kurfürsts over the centuries. A dream if a museum. It is impressive to see how everything was carefully rebuilt after being completely...More

One of the best places to visit in Dresden. The Residenzschloss houses both the Museum of prints and drawings and the Green Vault; one of the richest treasure chambers in Europe. There is a sumptuous array of decorative objects which are breathtaking.

Extraordinarily interesting reconstruction of 1 of the most important palaces in East Germany. Deep collections of jewels and artifacts. Fascinating to anyone just to see how people used to live.

Green Vault (Grünes Gewölbe) is Europe's oldest Museum after the Vatican and has Europe's largest treasure collection. It owes its name to the malachite-green colour with which some column bases and their capitals were painted during extension works to the original building in 1547. The...More

I never realised that there is a time limit on how long you can stay in the Green Vault. I’ve been twice and never had a problem taking as long as I want.

I would buy the combination ticket. You could easily see everything, including the Green Vault in a half day or several hours.

Same here. Our tickets were bought on site. When traveling abroad, I always print out whatever tickets we've purchased just in case my phone isn't being cooperative. Much safer that way.
