  • It is amazing to watch age old paintings under one roof. It is difficult to choose which of them to mention, but Sistine Madonna is just mesmerizing.  more »
  • If you don't have time, go and see atleast the Rafael. You will notice that it is a masterpiece that should be seen if you are once in Dresden. The madonna and the angels are just magnificent.  more »
  • This museum has one of the greatest collection in the world and worth a special journey to see. It will take 4-5 hours easily (maybe even more).  more »
