Japanisches Palais, Dresden
(2.2/5 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.

  • 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.

  • The Japanese Palace is an impressive building in the inner Neustadt Dresden. Towards golden rider over the Augustus bridge and turn front left, arriving a few minutes to the Palais. It is situated on the banks of the Elbe and now serves as the home of the Museum of Ethnology and the Senckenberg collection. We have not looked at but this.

  • 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.
