Opening hours 10-6pm daily. Entry is €10 and includes access to all three museums at Zwinger Palace. You can see works by Spanish, French and German Old Masters as well... More

We had to rush through this museum. But even with rushing you can really see the beauty. I would have loved to linger and enjoy but at least I saw.

Went there as the main attraction for Zwinger and love the display and the rooms themselves. Although this museum is not as great as El Prado in Madrid it is still supreme in its own way. The number of visitors in winter was less so we manage to get up close and personal to admire the paintings. Must go and... More

The Gemaldegalerie Alte Meister is a beautiful museum in Dresden with a good collection of 16th and 17th age art, among others Vermeer's girl reading a letter in the window. There is also a large collection of religious art.

We headed immediately to one of the most famous oil paintings in the world - Raphael’s Sistine Madonna which we admired up close for about 20 minutes. In the complete work, the... More

The gallery is one of the best I have ever visited in terms of both the collection and the historical aspect of the museum in which the artwork is displayed. Famous pieces include the 'Chocolate Girl' and the Sistine Modonna.

The first two floors of the gallery were full of masterpieces. The gallery on the first floor is roughly divided into Italian paintings on the right and Flemish/German on the left. The Corregio at the end of the first floor gallery was simply luminous. The second floor has lots of large scale canvasses: Titian, Tintoretto, Veronese, lots or Rubens, and... More

Augustus the Strong and his son Friedrich Augustus III continued at the beginning of the eighteenth... More
