This is an absolute must to visit if you are in Dresden. Tickets are reasonably priced giving you access to the main museums. We particularly enjoyed the porcelain collection. The Canaletto's in the Old Masters Picture gallery are fabulous.

Built to rival Versailles, this magnificent palace,,even without its three wonderful galleries and museums,,is a wonderful place to visit. The wonderful courtyard with its gardens, the extravagant and detailed carved decoration everywhere just gives so much to loo at. Try to get up on the...More

The Palace from the exterior is very beautiful. You can walk around the middle in the courtyard or even climb up the steps in walk around the top. Additionally the exhibitions were pretty cool too, if in Dresden, it's worth the visit.

Lovely fountains and gardens. Be sure to climb the steps and follow the walkway to see the area from above. Part of the walkway was being renovated so unable to walk all the way round. Had to retrace steps instead.

Our visit only included a visit to the extensive gardens, which are free of charge to enter, and not to the associated museums. Most of the site had been destroyed in the last weeks of the war but with Russian help, the site had been...More

This is one of the greatest baroque complexes in the world. No visitor should miss it. Not technically a palace but an incredible group of magnificent museums.

The palace and gardens are gorgeous, with green lawns and fountains. Lovely views down from the terrace. We did not have time to visit the museums, but enjoyed the peacefulness of the gardens despite the large numbers of tourists.

Impressive display of paintings and sculpture from the mid-1400s to 1700s. The audio guide is not really worth the 3 euros because only about a third or less of the paintings have recorded descriptions.

We were not expecting the beautiful laid out gardens that we found when we went through the archway into Zwinger. We walked around the terrace and enjoyed the views. We didn't go into the building and see the collections of china - not really our...More

This palace is humongous and it is hard to imagine people actually living in it at some point. The architecture, the statues, the fountains, the grounds, everything is stunningly beautiful. You feel like you are in a movie! It is free to visit if you...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
