The Albertinum, the former Armory of Dresden Fortress, has been home to precious collections since the 19th century. They are under the auspices of the Dresden State Art Collections (Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden).
After its repair and reconstruction, the new Albertinum now presents itself with art from Romanticism to the present. The new exhibition halls are shared between the New Masters' Gallery (Galerie Neue Meister) and the Sculpture Collection (Skulpturensammlung).
Sights Close By
Bruehl's Terrace, also called the "Balcony of Europe", for its beautiful view over the Elbe River. Immediately underneath and behind mighty walls, there is the Dresden Fortress. Its cannon yards and casemates dating from the 16th century provide insight into Dresden’s history. The Stable Yard is one of the few testimonies to the glamorous era of the Renaissance in Dresden.
