  • Name giver is the Dresdner Residenzschloss. The oldest part is the Georgenbau with the newer Georgentor, which is in the neo-renaissance style. It establishes the connection to the old market.

  • The castle in the center of Dresden is one of the most important Renaissance complexes in Germany. In the course of history, the ensemble has been expanded, rebuilt and changed several times in the style of the time. With the reconstruction after the war destruction of 1945, this process is now being continued.

  • 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.

  • Manorial seat and cultural center of the Saxon capital: The Dresden Residenzschloss reflects almost 800 years of history. Heavily damaged in the Second World War, the restored palace now houses 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 Palace Courtyard brilliantly show the art of sgraffito - a sophisticated scratch-plastering technique.
    Spanned by an apparently floating roof structure made of transparent plastic cushions, the Small Castle Courtyard tells of bold Renaissance architecture.

  • The Dresden Residenzschloss is a Renaissance building in the city center of Dresden. It was the seat of the Dresden court and the residential palace of the Saxon electors (1547–1806) and kings (1806–1918). As the ancestral home of the Albertine line of the House of Wettin, it was influential in the cultural development of Dresden from the 16th century onwards. The residential palace is one of the oldest buildings in the city and is historically significant, as all styles from Romanesque to historicism have left their mark on the building.

    The castle, which has been under reconstruction since the 1980s, is now home to five museums: Historical and New Green Vault, Coin Cabinet, Copper Engraving Cabinet and Armory with Turkish Chamber. The art library and the general directorate of the Dresden State Art Collections are also housed here.

  • One of the most important Renaissance castles is located in Dresden's old town: the Residenzschloss Dresden. As the seat of electors and kings, it has been the cultural center of the city since the 15th century. Almost completely destroyed in the bombing raids on Dresden in 1945, the Dresden Royal Palace is now back in its former glory. The Dresden State Art Collections are home to one of the largest art collections in Europe. In the Green Vault, the Royal Parade Rooms, the Renaissance Wing, the Turkish Chamber, and the Giant Hall of the Armory, guests discover evidence of a glorious time. The coin cabinet and the copper engraving cabinet can also be found behind the castle walls. From the 100 meter high Hausmannsturm, guests enjoy a unique panoramic view of Dresden.

  • The former residence of the Wettins is a monument of Saxon history and culture. It has seen rulers come and go, experienced reconstruction and survived wars.
    After the last one, her fate seemed sealed. But a magnificent castle grew again from the burned-out ruins.
