The garden and grounds are very well-maintained with beautiful statues and unique architecture. Everything is a re-creation since the firebombs of 1945 destroyed the original except for fire-proof tiles.

Along with the residential palace, this is a must see. The collection of old Mastersd paintings (Titian, Reubens, Rembrandt, Raphael, Botticelli, etc.) is on par with any collection anywhere! The porcelain collection is incredible. Indescribable!

It depends on you, and your likes and dislikes. The Zwinger, for example, is essentially three museums in one. The old masters paintings gallery is not on a par with first rate museums in Europe. Much of their collection was... More
