The variety of jewels and decor is amazing. I was so impressed with the craftsmanship of these pieces done in ivory, gold, wood, etc. I can’t imagine the wealth of the royalty to purchase these items. There is information in English, plus audio guides come...More

When visiting Dresden this is a place that you have to find the time to visit. The use of the free audio guide is essential to fully enjoy all the exhibits and make sure to click for the 'extra information'. The range of treasures will...More

Having read reviews online I booked this in advance on the internet 12 Euros plus 2 Euro booking fee. I saw the New Green Vault upstairs first which has some incredible artefacts and I'd recommend doing that first because once you've been in the Historic...More

This is a must stop in Dresden! Thankfully the artifacts here were preserved by the city fathers during WWII. The intricate and beautiful art on display will amaze. Be sure to take your time and see it all.

On the first floor of Dresden Castle, the original Green Vault was founded in 1723 by Augustus the Strong as a public museum. It now houses some 3,000 treasures, many of which are examples of remarkable craftsmanship. It is well worth spending a couple of...More

Wow. What a waste of money. Sure the objects on display are pretty and it's a good example of Gesamtkunstwerk. But for that price with zero student tarif (in contrast to the other museums run by the same organisation)? An overzealous policy on jackets and...More

Many nice things to see, but with kids it's quite a challenge. There are also not many written inscription, but only audio guides. We left the audio guides because we had a small kid with us, but without the guide it was really hard to...More

I never realised that there is a time limit on how long you can stay in the Green Vault. I’ve been twice and never had a problem taking as long as I want.

I would buy the combination ticket. You could easily see everything, including the Green Vault in a half day or several hours.
