The heading says it all- but here's a summary- there are four galleries here- porcelain collection, Old Master's Art gallery, Scientific instruments and the 'Nymphenbad' which was under renovation summer 2015. Each of these galleries are worth a visit. And if you have been dreaming of Sistine Madonna all your life like I have, you'll love it all the more.... More

Germany was always my dream. And Dresden... i really felt in love with this city.... ancient monuments look so good with modern building... But when you get inside the Dresden Art GAlleries you are feeling on the cloud nine. Amazing place where you relax and enjoy beauty of arts

You would need about a day to look at all the art work in this amazing gallery. We were mainly interested in the collection of work of our distant relative Gerhard Richter. However, all the other items were very interesting and were surprise to notice that after three hours we did not see too much for lack of time.

The collections range from primitive Italian art to modern and are really fine. Caspar David Friedrich studied here and there is a good collection of his works, mainly the earlier ones. Plan to spend two sessions since the collections are vast.
