We went in the Neues Grunes Gewolde (New Green Vault), the Turkische Cammer (Turkish Chamber), Riesensaal (Giant's Hall), Munzkabinett (Numismatic Cabinet), Renaissance flugel (wing). We had had enough by then...More

The Royal Palace is impressive both in terms of scale and the quality of the architecture. With different museums and exhibitions, there is much to see here. Dresden may not be high on places to see in Germany, but it should be as there is...More

The palace has a number of amazing collections and is a must if in Dresden. Restoration is continuing of the building but that does not detract from it in any way. The Old Green Vault is extra but the New Green Vault which has a...More
