The collection is largely confined to Chinese, Japanese and Meissen ware. Housed in two parts either side of the clock tower and much of it flooded bv daylight from the windows, and the white decor just adds to the uplifting experience.

This was totally unexpected! Such care has been taken to put collections together and staged so beautifully. From small pieces to huge pieces (3 carrousels)! It's a treat for all to enjoy.

The porcelain collection is a must-see at the Zwinger! Sculptures, vases, decorations - the creativity of these masters seems to have had no limits. Priceless!
