  • From one of the most beautiful hotels ever - Taschenbergpalais Kempinski Dresdenwe we crossed the road to the Residenzschloss, Dresden’s former Royal Palace opposite the hotel. This is where you can f...  more »
  • Due to time constraints, we have decided for the visit of the new green Vault. You can visit this part without prior notification (in contrast to the historic green Vault). Hall of the feats has impressed me most, I recommend to use the audio guide. Unspeakably many good information can be the whole of ball running clock (c. 1600) open up the visitors. It connects the moving figures with music. A masterpiece of mechanics. But also just to impress watchmaking, let that did what human hands. It made me a lot of fun, to discover the many details. Although art Chamber cabinets more to represent were intended, and part way with precious stones "littered" are, they stand as a testament to the brilliant craft art. I find just in today's digital world, is only to recommend a trip to the past.

  • With the dissolution of many empires and monarchies around Europe, it has become almost tradition that palaces are turned into historical museums. The Royal Palace here in Dresden is no different and when they rebuilt the palace, it become designated as a museum. Actually, it was 5 museums including the Green Vault, the largest collection of treasures in all of Europe.
  • Interesting place. But you need spend many hours for being there.
  • Excellent exhibition. Book your tickets on line in advance.
  • Heavyweight European museum. This treasure collection is mindblowing, no wonder it is referred to as the most important in Europe. Imagine what the treasures of the Saxon capital must have looked like before so many of them got destroyed in the War, if even what is left today is enough to amaze a well-travelled museum-goer. The containing building - the Residenzschloss - is beautiful in itself. All in all, a must for every visitor to Dresden.
  • Mind = blown. It takes quite a while to see it all. Gold, jewels, mother of pearls and porcelain. All used as material for a huge collection of masterpieces of functional art. I would give it 5 stars if I could make pictures. Seriously I'm not going to make my own jewerly form the pics when I get back home, sheesh.
