Japanisches Palais, Dresden

2.1
#13 of 13 in Historic Sites in Dresden
Japanisches Palais is a Baroque building in Dresden, Germany, on the Neustadt bank of the river Elbe. Built in 1715, it was extended from 1729 until 1731 to store the Japanese porcelain collection of Augustus the Strong that is now part of the Dresden Porcelain Collection. However, it was never used for this purpose, and instead served as a library. The palace is a work of architects Pöppelmann, Longuelune and de Bodt.The Japanisches Palais was partly destroyed during the allied bombing raids on 13 February 1945, but was reconstructed in the 1950s and 1960s. The final reconstruction work continued until 1987. Today, it houses three museums: the Museum of Ethnology Dresden, the State Museum for Pre-History and the Senckenberg Naturhistorische Sammlungen Dresden.

    located across the river Elbe this great baroque palace with a strange concave roof. It was built in 1729 as a summer residence of the Elector Frederick Augustus I: the Palace is home to two museums, one dedicated to tropical countries and one regional ethnography of prehistory.

  • Japan Japan CI Wen Gegong, Palace built in 1715 to 1737 by architect matewusi·dannier Percy Peman construction. Elector houfulidelixi·aogusite I bought it, to exhibit his collection of porcelain. From 1727 to 1733, this Palace was expanded into four-winged form of late baroque classicism. Eastern style on the roof of the Pavilion makes it the Asian appearance, this also brings to it the name of Japan. Attached to the Palace a charming garden, from where one can browse the left bank of the Elbe river landscape. After being destroyed in World War II, and from 1957 also accommodated the National Art Museum and State Museum of prehistory.
