Forget other things, even just walking around this area feels awesome. It is a must visit in Dresden.

So, if you visit Dresden you have to visit this place- you could not leave this city without seeing Sistine Madonna of Rafael. The most favorite little angel at the world. If such masterpiece will be located in Paris you will not have a chance...More

Fun to walk in but I would not consider this a destination in and of itslelf. There are several things at the Zwinger to see but none of them was overwhelming. It does glue the old town together.

The gallery of early pieces of art is inspiring. From the paintings of Adan and Eve through the rulers of the area and the wonderful sculptures the Zwinger is enlightening. Sit down and enjoy what is presented to you. Take your time.

Delightful assembly of grand, yet playful, buildings, lawns and fountains. Impressive enough for European visitors but the Americans appeared blown away.

This site of the Zwinger in the old town is a must for tourists. It's a combination of a number of old buildings with museums inside (mainly porcelain and paintings) in so called pavillions and galleries. But also the gardens are beautiful and worth the...More

We decided to spend a morning there. We didn't bother with paying extra for the audio guide and managed to gain a lot from the experience. Go, it's a beautiful place just to explore with interesting art and porcelain. Make sure you have a walk...More

It depends on you, and your likes and dislikes. The Zwinger, for example, is essentially three museums in one. The old masters paintings gallery is not on a par with first rate museums in Europe. Much of their collection was... More
