This is worth the trip all by itself, especially if you read the details and understand the importance of this palace and its inhabitants. Totally reconstructed with an excellent eye to detail. The museum all by itself and an easy, educational visit

The royal palace has been very efficiently restored after it was terrible bombed during the war like actually all of Dresden was.. The communist regime did also do their best to add to the destruction.

We went in the Neues Grunes Gewolde (New Green Vault), the Turkische Cammer (Turkish Chamber), Riesensaal (Giant's Hall), Munzkabinett (Numismatic Cabinet), Renaissance flugel (wing). We had had enough by then...More

The whole Dresden day trip from Berlin was one of most pleasure tours in Germany. It provides full of history. We highly recommended.

We were on a day tour of Dresden and decided to spend some free time in this museum. It was interesting, but a little difficult to navigate. After an hour we gave up. I am glad we went here..

Great gothic style building with some real history and a jewel of the area well worth visiting for an hour or so

This was the most messed up place I’ve every seen; no logical flow and no signage once you got out of the Historic Green Vault. Had to leave our bags and cameras before entering the green vault, and couldn't find where the clockroom was until...More

Unfortunately all the hype raised expectations. What we find is a congested district with buildings blackened by years of poison smoke from cola fired power plants. It ain't the Florence of the north - unless Florence is just as bad.... (never been there). Too much...More
