  • One, despite destruction of many exhibits over the course of decades and centuries by war, bombs and fire, beautiful collection of highly interesting exhibits. The delicate techniques of goldsmiths, as well as materials have inspired me.

  • 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.
