  • I think since you can say not much: you should have seen. Well-known and less-known images of old masters hang from it. In part reflect the window too much in the painting protection glasses.

  • It's not a very large Museum and has several paintings of great masters, separated by centuries. This makes it possible to show more easily, as the performers were changing the way paint over time. The most important and sought after in the Museum is the Madonna of Raphael-I love the little angels

  • Since I heard about Dresden from my Lectures and saw the pictures of this neat but radiant city it has always been my wish to visit Dresden someday, and I did it after over 10 years long waiting. My very first footprints were in Zwinger (the Locals call it 'der Dresdner Zwinger' which is actualy a palace in Dresden and a major landmark of German baroque architecture. The location was formerly part of the Dresden fortress of which the outer wall is conserved. You could just take a cozy short or long walk the way the royal ladies did or if you have more time do dare yourself to experience the awe at the museums. To me Zwinger belongs to one of the nicest Castle/Palace I've visited in Germany (incl. Neuschwanstein, Linderhof and Sansouci).
  • Very impressive. A lot if beautiful paintings from famous masters. Worth to visit if you are in Dresden.
  • Palatial building with many rooms of lovely art. The art is displayed on a few floors, with a logical path throughout the exhibits. The highlight is Raphael's Sistine Madonna, with the cherubs he added as an afterthought that are now ubiqutous in the fine arts tchotchke world. The actual picture is fabulous. There are other significant works, including a few Vermeers. If you love European art, go here.
  • The newly created foyer opens space for new thinking and engaging crowds from the "outside".
  • This gallery is really worth seeing. You can find a lot of ancient pictures
