Nice place

One of the main attraction in Dresden, the entrance is free, unless you want to get inside museum, nice for walk and to combine with other main attraction surround.

The building and grounds are most impressive. The art exhibition was very interesting as it focused on the Masters. Facility is beautifully maintained and a powerful reminder of another age.

Do not miss Zwinger gallery during Your visit Dresden. Take enough time for Your visit, watch tour guide (take one at cash desk buying ticket). Divide You visit into two or three part and make brake in Caffee. If You want to explore more about pictures, rent sound guide in Your language.

It was a surprise for us to see this amazing well preserved and designed Museum+Garden altogether! It's very easy to find any angle for a good photograph here and apparently we heard the collections inside the museum is a must see too (but too bad our tour didn't give us enough time to go inside).

Really love the whole area and the sculptures. Also went in to see Gemaldegalerie Alte Meister and the Porcelain collection.

Zwinger is one of those places where photos don't do the justice. It's beautiful to look at, walk around and wonder. You can conveniently walk on the top of the buildings on the terrace. The complex houses Collection of porcelain that's quite incredible, Chinese and Meisen, beautifully displayed, gallery of old Masters and museum of math. The ticket, 10 euros,... More

I have never seen such things made from porcelain - animals, flowers, vases - everything just amaising.

Well, I can only say everything that we have seen here are beyond words of description or expression of its beauty! From our walking tour right in Zwinger, from between buildings to buildings, everything was so magnificent, grand and nice. The main entrance into the Zwinger gardens is through this neoclassical portal in the long Sempergalerie. There are six pavilions... More
