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 gallery is located in a large complex Zwinger, where several museums and exhibitions. Beautiful is a collection of Italian Renaissance art masters. I was in the Zwinger already 4 times and each time I discover something new. On this last visit, I have closely examined the collection of porcelain. The library collects truly unique exhibits not only from Germany... More

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.

Seeing the pictures by Rafael, Rembrandt and Tintoretto - what can be better on a post-Christmas day? ;) What we liked best was the easy route around the Gallery, as we all know how confusing they may be ;) And the collection of porcelain is really amazing! Worth visiting witout any doubt!

If you visit Dresden, you must visit these Galeries. They are near from other attractions and even if you don´t enter you can visit the gardens around. It is worth the paints and the café inside as well.

For anyone who enjoys treasure troves of paintings, porcelain (both German and Asian), as well as clocks, all inside a huge baroque building with formal gardens and walkways this wonderful museum will give you hours of pleasure.
