Japanisches Palais, Dresden

(2/5 based on 15+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The Japanese Palace was built by August the strong and should serve to the exhibition of porcelain. Today, the Palace houses a science exhibition of Senckenberg (3D images of animals and dinosaurs) and another Museum. Admission is separate to pay for both.

  • Its name, Japanese Palace in the city of Dresden, may be a caller, but go to see it only if you will spare you time, because it is not free and is used for temporary exhibitions and the only building is curious to have a Japanese statues in its interior courtyard. Bad boy.

  • We have seen an impressive concert there. In summer, there are many cultural activities without admission. Very nice ambience. You can borrow deck chairs. A very romantic place.
