Japanisches Palais, Dresden

1.0
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 current exhibition on the natural history is very nice but very small. The ethnographic exhibition is also quite clear and rather artistic and not traditionally informative about unfamiliar cultures or even the history of the Collections.

  • The Japanese Palace is in the southwestern part of the inner Neustadt in close proximity to the Elbe. From Golden rider out it is on foot in less than three minutes here. Originally, the building was built in 1715 by the architect Matthäus Daniel Pöppelmann as a pleasure palace for Jakob Heinrich Graf von Flemming. Since then it was rebuilt many times and now serves as a Museum for Ethnology. The copper roofs and bright façades make the building look friendly and attractive. With its proximity to the river Elbe and the baroque garden there are, here a little around to shopping, even if you do not want in the Museum. We were a while here and there we liked.
