I find this gallery tricky to review. On the one hand, I wasn't bowled away by the collection. I don't regret our visit, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend certain pieces (the Sistine Madonna, a lovely Vermeer, Holbein's portrait of Charles de Solier and Bellotto's paintings of Dresden among them), but I passed through several rooms where nothing was especially...

With my wheelchair bound husband and another relative I visited this otherwise excellent museum on June 21st 2014. We were politely guided around the outside of the building where, after the arrival of an operative, a wonderful elevator arose from the ground! This took us to the lower floor where we purchased our entry tickets, submitted them to the official... More

This is a small art museum with some great collections. The admission is included in the Zwinger ticket, which is about 10 euros. Raphael's Sistine Madonna is definitely the most famous one in this collection and I it alone is worth the price of the admission ticket. Upstairs, you can also find some paintings of Dresden in 1800s. It is... More

We were delighted!!!! Very nice Museum! Small, but it has a very good collection. They should play a classical music to build a comfortable place! Totally worthy!

Certainly worth visiting. There are some construction activities nearby and the emplacement of the exposition is interim but nevertheless, a very good collection. The original of the Sistine Madonna is breath-taking.

Have you ever wanted to view a painting created by an artist you absolutely love? The Sistine Madonna by Raphael with the two sweet cherubs has long been a family favorite and, when I visited Dresden, it was at the top of my list of things to see. Standing in front of this masterpiece was magical for me as was... More

Amazing. The Zwinger's Gemaeldegalerie, the porcelain collection, the time-piece and most of all the measuring instrument collections is fabulous.

There are not so many museums which has so beautiful collection. Use any available chance to see it. And a little secret: take a break in a museum cafe - it is excellent!

Lots of fabulous paintings.Only problem is that the gallery is being renovated at the moment so some of the paintings are hung so high it is difficult to see them.

Dream of my whole life came true in this trip. I was so fascinated to see The Sistine Madonna by Rafael. There are no words in the world to describe the beauty of this Masterpiece. I spend hours standing and enjoying this magnificent painting. If you can see it alone, it is already worth the trip. All collections in this... More
