    The museums in the kennel are very interesting and the courtyard invites you to linger in good weather. What is good, once you have paid admission, you can visit the Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister, the Mathematisch-Physikalischen Salon and the Porzellansammlung as well as all current special exhibitions.

    Every guest of the city should visit the kennel in the evenings. The light of the evening sun in the glass surfaces.

    The crown gate adorns a crown with the Polish eagles, as Elector Augustus the Strong was also King of Poland at the same time.

    The carillon on the Glockenspiel pavilion plays a tune every quarter of an hour. The bells are made of Meissen porcelain.

    The Zwinger is a building complex with gardens in Dresden. Built under the direction of the architect Matthäus Daniel Pöppelmann and the sculptor Balthasar Permoser, the Gesamtkunstwerk of architecture, sculpture and painting is one of the most important Baroque buildings and is the most famous building monument of Dresden in addition to the Frauenkirche. His name Zwinger goes back to the medieval name for a fortress between the outer and inner fortress wall, although the kennel already at the start of construction no longer fulfills the function corresponding to the name.

    The Dresden Zwinger is always worth a visit. If you are already in Dresden, you can not get around the Frauenkirche and the Dresden Zwinger. It is always remarkable how the historic buildings have changed since the turn for the better. Highly recommended is a guided tour of the kennel. Try it.

    Especially recommended is a tour of the Zwingerbalustraden. These can be reached via stairs from outside and inside the kennel. From here you can enjoy a beautiful view of the entire area. Entrance fee is not charged here either.
