You've no doubt seen those two cute little, "heavily marketed" angels looking up. At what? See the painting and realize they are looking up at the Madonna! The grounds and the building are absolutely beautiful. Since this was a one day visit to Dresden and there is so much else to see I couldn't give the Zwinger its due. I... More

Quintessential Dresden. We visited the porcelain and scientific instruments exhibits. Both were quite interesting, although they did not take as much time to visit as we anticipated. Worth the time, though.

Great collection of the Masters that are well presented and not over whelming. It was like your art history book suddenly leaped from its pages The scientific instruments museum sounded boring but was not. The included fascinating... More

So glad the memorial to a glorious past has been built up again after the devastating fire on February 13/14 1945. Dresden's old town has been rebuilt the way it was and as former capital of Saxony a center of culture.

It often makes me wonder about the likely disposition with which a tourist approaches a historical landmark. The Zwinger is certainly iconic in Dresden; certainly a must see. Surely the kind of place where you would want to pose for snapshots for the folks back home. In its heyday it was not a grand historical monument but a hip venue... More
