You do need someone to explain it all. We wandered around on our own, had a lovely time but didn't realise what we were seeing. It was quite good to explore first and then have a guide on the second viewing. Some things we didn't...More

We loved this. 3 world class museums with fascinating exhibits. We especially enjoyed the Mathematical and scientific exhibits. The Zwinger was well worth the trip alone.

Located in the historic quarter this is an enormous rectangular palace like structure with a huge central courtyard and two ponds with fountains. The architecture is stunning and different wings contain different exhibitions. A large gold crown is above the main entrance.

A must see. Beautiful and lovingly rebuilt so you cannot tell original from new. Breathtaking. It's my 4th time visiting and it never gets old.

Nice place to visit, it's free to enter. Be there @ 10:15 for the bells!! Some sights that you pay we didn't do just because of time.

This art gallery offers so many art collections. Paintings and porcelains especially. The garden is beautiful and so well maintained.

Many do compare the Zwinger Musuem of Dresden with its more visible elder sister The Louvre Musuem at Paris. Having lived at Paris for 7 years I know the Louvre pretty well and found it having a masculine imposing image through its miles of walking...More

This place gave me the most beautiful and unforgettable memories of Dresden. It is like a time loop into the past. It is so tranquil and so unique. The most beautiful pictures are made here, too!

The Baroque buildings are absolutely beautiful and the garden impressive even though we we there in winter you could just imagine how beautiful the garden would be in Spring and Summer. Just remember to not stand or walk on the grass/lawns! Security will be quick...More

There's a big paying parking lot less than 10 min walk from Zwinger, near the Neumarkt. It is paying in coins, so have them with you. Dresden city center is small, easy covered on foot.
Is entrance to the compound where the fountains are free?

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
