Dresden Fortress

Dresden Fortress, situated directly underneath Bruehl's Terrace, is considered to be the oldest preserved part of Dresden. The stone structures in the seemingly subterranean rooms bear witness to the Renaissance and thus invite visitors to an exciting tour.

Bruehl's Terrace

Those who take a stroll along the preserved fortification of Dresden, the civil redesign of which was commissioned by Count Heinrich von Bruehl in the middle of the 18th century, will comprehend the effusive expression of the "Balcony of Europe".

Dresden Stable Yard

One of the few testimonials to the glamorous era of the Renaissance in Dresden is the Stable Yard. Once a venue for courtly entertainment in the course of which participants had to prove their skill and sportiness, it still invites visitors today.

Tips for trips

The Gardens of Kings

Take a walk in Saxony’s most beautiful gardens, allow to be inebriated by their scents, experience unexpected views and gain undreamt-of insights. 
Relax in the spacious gardens or stroll in sunshine, accompanied by the splashing of fountains. And take a piece of Schloesserland home with you: a flower bed brick from Bad Muskau, a camellia shoot from Pillnitz, summer flowers or an Azalea from Weesenstein can all be purchased in those places.
