  • This was the first place we came to on our self guided walking tour of Dresden and it made for such an opener... Even with the groundworks going on, it impressed enormously.

  • Wonderful place, architectural paradise. Something definitely worth seeing if you happen to be around. Sadly was partly under construction/renovation at August 2021.
  • Large castle with a lot of rooms. Prepare to spend 3 - 5 hours easily to see all parts of it. Also one thing to note you can’t enter with large bags (my small backpack got rejected by security) get your valuables with you or leave it at hotel
  • What a wonderful place! It doesn't matter from which angle and perspective you look at it, it takes you to another world and to another time. You might see a bunch of tourists around but it will still be a peaceful place. Enjoy watching the carriages with horses and listening to the opera singers busking around. The whole city is a one in a lifetime experience.
  • A very large number of halls, many interesting and beautiful exhibits. There are halls with clothes, weapons, jewelry, definitely recommend to visit!
  • Very interesting museum in Dresden. They’ve done a fantastic job of rebuilding and creating a very interacting exhibit.
