  • Gorgeous treasures. Stunning! You need lots of time to see everything, even then you still will not be able. You need a day. You won't be disappointed here.
  • These are some of the best treasury art collections in Europe

  • Fantastic place
  • The fame of the Gemaldegalerie Alte Meister is based on masterpieces such as Raphael`s "Sisstine Madonna" ,Giorgione` "Sleeping Venus" ,Corregio`s "Holly Night",Cranach`s "St.Catherine`s Altarpiece",Vermeer`s "Girl reading a letter by an open window" and Belloto`s views of Dresden .Other famous paintings by artists as Van Eyck,Rembrandt,Rubens,Durer,Holbein,Titian,Veronese,Canaletto,Poussin,Watteau,El Greco ,Murillo,Raeburn and Graff invite careful study and contemplation;a gathering of creme de la creme of european artfrom the late Rennaissdance to the Rococo period. In the main building of Zwinger you will admire : a) Ground floor:15th and 16th centuries in 9 rooms b) 1st floor :16th-18th century in 12 rooms c) 2nd floor :17th and 18th century in 5 rooms Photography and filming for private is generally permited (i did a lot of pictures) without use of flash,tripod or selfie stick,maintain a distance of at least 50 cm from the work of art...free wi-fi but poor... Day ticket for all museums of SKD :19 euro The courtyard it`s a heavens part so you need to have a lot of memory cards ! :) Enjoy it !
