Located within the Residenzschloss (a historic palace) in Dresden, there are two parts to the Green Vault: an old part in period rooms and a new part. You must see them both and you must leave plenty of time. The treasures within are not to be believed. Nearly everything in the Green Vault (old and new) is a decorative art... More

On the first floor there is the Historic Green Vault and on the second floor the New Green Vault. The museum was founded by Augustus the Strong in 1723 – 1729, though the history... More

Very impressive works stored here. You'll be amazed at the intricate works and how beautiful they are. You could spend all day here and may go blind from all the glitter.

You need time, eyes wide opened and a attention to visit this place. The antique King palace is full of unique pieces of ancient art and jewelry to leave you speechless. It is really worthy a visit with the audio guide and a few hours.

This is a meticulously organised display. The audio guides are high quality in content and ease of use. The jewellery display was dazzling to say the least! All women should visit!!

When I was in Dresden earlier this month I did the historic Green Vault tour. The tour itself, with a free audioguide, was very good and the rooms were certainly spectacular. Many of the rooms were destroyed during the bombing of Dresden in 1945, though you wouldn't know it as they've been very well reconstructed. However, the tour only took... More

This was worth the trip to Dresden to see the artifacts in this collection and to learn about the history of how most of the artifacts were removed by museum staff during WW II in anticipation of the city being bombed. We chose to order tickets online rather than to hope tickets were available on the day we wanted to... More

The sheer vastness of this collection will take your breath away and to at least glance at every item will take your attention to the fact that all these items had to be selected or ordered from a craftsman or made to the specific wishes of the sovereign.
