»Splendor. Tears. Disasters. Closer than ever.«

The new exhibition »Splendor. Tears. Disasters. Closer than ever.« showing at the Dresden Fortress will convey unique impressions.

Around ten million guests from all over the world visit Saxony's »Florence on the Elbe River« every year and are fascinated by its world-famous sights. The Dresden Frauenkirche and the Green Vault belong to it, just like the Dresden Zwinger and the Semper Opera house. Almost every visitor strolls over the famous Bruehl’s Terrace and enjoys the panoramic view of the Elbe River, its bridges and the Neustadt.

However, only very few visitors know that substantial parts of Germany’s oldest fortified bastion still lie hidden underneath Bruehl’s Terrace.

In our new exhibition, these will open fascinating insights into Dresden’s turbulent history – with all its splendor, tears and disasters.
