I think one is not enough to go sightseeing to Zvinger. Each building, even each stone of this building are noteworthy of tourists.

This is an amazing place to see. Go inside the individual museums. You have to check in umbrella and you have to do it at each museum because you must access from outside.

After a city tour I ended up in front of Zwinger entrance. As I was going through hallway I felt vibrating atmosphere. At the end you find yourself in a beautiful gardens of Zwinger complex. Beautiful architecture, angel statues, fountains. I couldn't imagine such a beauty in the city centre. Must see in Dresden.

I only saw the porcelain collection, which is huge and amazing. One of the highlights of my many, many trips to Europe over the years. Wish I'd gone sooner, and would love to go back!
