  • If it has the breathtaking panorama of the banks of the old town around the Church of our Lady in mind, you may believe that Dresden had even a fortress... Yes, the times are changing. The next surprise: Although you must step down, is still days - even if this impression will adjust not. But it's simple: the Brühl's terrace is almost at ground level basement, and the whole thing has you excavated again a few years ago and made (partially) available to the public. The whole story with audio guide or at the weekend by an expert explains, and if you've been here: one hour should be fortified in it.

  • A great Museum and very well preserved. With a guide, you can learn many interesting details on the history and life in the fortress, as well as the background to the creation of the Museum. That some areas because of water damage are inaccessible makes the visit not less interesting, and is well worth the price of admission 5 euros.

  • It is a nice stop. It doesn't take that long and there is a lot to see and hear. You are running around in the remains of an old castle protection belt. The place itself is history and they have exhibits and items from many time periods. You learn about the discovery of white gold in the western world how the city was protected and some politics and city building strategies and ... Don't worry they don't get into it to much it is just really entertainment and some party knowledge.
  • Nice to spend a hour ot two and learn about the history of the city. Cheap. Good audioguides.
  • Unbedingt anschauen bei einem Dresden Besuch!
  • Great Museum with interesting insights into the history of Dresden. The audio guide is fine, with him it is in as 1 to 1.5 hours. On hot days, you get a nice cooling here underground. By flooding a is not accessible currently 14 stations. The entrance is a little hidden. Preis-Leistung top.
