»Splendor. Tears. Disasters.«
New from the End of 2018
Descend, embark on a fascinating journey and fully immerse in 450 years of Dresden's history in our new exhibition »Splendor. Tears. Disasters. Closer than ever.«, showing from the end of 2018 in the Dresden Fortress.
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.
