We visited Zwinger Palace only from te outside, you can walk in the garden and balcony's for free. The Palace is a great and beautiful building, it's in the middle of alt stadt Dresden.

Make sure u have plenty of time because this place not only looks great from the outside but also from the inside. I am really impressed with Dresden and this place is one of the most impressing locations to visit.
