The seat of power and the cultural center of the Saxon capital: The Dresden Residenzschloss reflects almost 800 years of history. Heavily damaged in the Second World War, the restored castle is now home to the Dresden State Art Collections
The world-famous Green Vault of the Türckische Cammer, the giant hall of the armory, the coin cabinet and the copperplate cabinet can be found in the Residenzschloss today.
The facades of the Great Castle Courtyard brilliantly show the art of sgraffito - a sophisticated scratch-cleaning technique.
Spanned by an apparently floating roof structure made of transparent plastic cushions, the Small Castle Courtyard tells of bold Renaissance architecture.schloesserland-sachsen.de/de/schloesser-burgen-gaerten/residenzschloss-dresden

The Semperoper, the Zwinger, the Frauenkirche and right in the middle: the Residenzschloss. One architectural highlight follows another in Dresden's old town. Today it is hard to imagine that the residential palace was only rebuilt a few years ago. Because during the bombing raids on Dresden in February 1945 it was almost completely burned out - only part of the historical Green Vault and the cellar remained intact.
